Can You Embed YouTube Videos on Wix?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 6:58 am

Yes, you can embed YouTube videos on Wix. You can do this by using the Wix video element.

To do this, simply add a video element to your Wix page and then paste the YouTube video URL into the video element’s content field. The video will then automatically appear on your page. You can also use the Wix video element to embed videos from other sources, such as Vimeo or Dailymotion.


Exciting update! We've collaborated with Wix to offer WBI users with a free plan for all website creation needs - Explore the details here.

PRO TIP: While it is possible to embed YouTube videos on Wix, we do not recommend doing so. The reason for this is that YouTube videos are not designed to be embedded on other websites and as a result, they may not display properly on your Wix site. Additionally, YouTube videos are subject to change at any time and they could be removed from your site without notice.

If you want more control over how your video appears on your page, you can use the Wix Video Player. With the Wix Video Player, you can customize the player’s size, color, and controls. You can also add a link to another page or site that will open when the video ends.

The Wix Video Player is a great way to showcase your videos on your Wix site. It’s easy to use and gives you lots of control over how your videos look on your pages.
