How to Find Embed Code for a YouTube Video Using An iPad

Hey guys! I work a ton on my iPad mini 4 (aka Goldie) and I hate having to put off finishing an article in WordPress until I switch to the computer. So I’m always finding these little ways to more completely use just the iPad.

If using the YouTube app, Safari etc. you will not find the option for the embed code.     WordPress requires it to make a video post, so here’s what I do:

  1. Download Chrome on your iPad if you don’t yet have it & go to the video you want.
  2. Tap the three dots in the top right corner to see more options and choose desktop mode
  3. Sometimes it goes right to desktop, sometimes it opens up your YT app. If this happens click the top right arrow that says “YouTube” to go through to the desktop version,
  4. Click the “share” arrow and the embed code will drop down as usual on a desktop site.

This is my first time posting an iPad/WP tip like this! So let me know if the comments or tweet me if it’s helpful or if you have another way.
