3. After you have completed "Source URL" and 'Enter Name", click "Insert media". 

4. After you have inserted your media, the text will appear. The video will be embedded after you click save changesat the bottom of the screen.

 

Once you save your entry, the video will appear embedded.

Use this method if you have already located a video that you would like to embed. 

Note: This method also works for podcasts if you have a direct link to the podcast.
