Using Video in your WordPress Pages

We use a special plugin to enhance the video display on our websites. this is how to use it:

When you want to display Youtube video in your post, paste the video link with httpv:// (notice the ‘v’)

Example: httpv://

0000000 part is your video REF#

The video will be automatically embedded to your post in the proper way.

If you want to post a high/HD (DVD quality, 720p) quality video you would use httpvh:// (‘vh’ for video high resolution)

To embed a playlist use extension ‘vp’ (eg. httpvp://

To use video deep linking just add &start=time parameter at the end of url. For example httpv:// will start the video 30 seconds in.

Additionally, you can set how do you want the video to be displayed in your RSS feed. Smart Youtube can show the preview image of the video (automatically grabbed from Youtube), the link to the video, or both. I recommend enabling only the preview image.
