“A picture is worth a thousand words”
Moving pictures are even better! Thus, a while ago a friend asked me to help her show the most recent three videos from her YouTube channel on her website. Of course, I could have told her to copy and paste the YouTube URL into the editor, as WordPress provides 30+ embeds put of the box. This solution, however, would require that every time she uploads a video to YouTube, she would then have to manually add the video to her WordPress site.
