Summary of this tutorial:

Embedding a Facebook video can be confusing for a first time adding it. There is not an easy copy url and embed like with YouTube videos.

That’s why we will walk you through the steps for adding these videos to your site.

Start by finding the Facebook video that you are wanting to add to your site, right click, and copy the link address.

In another window, load up the Facebook embedded video player website, the link to which is below.

Add the link address in the URL field and generate the code for your site.

Two codes will be shown, one for adding into your header and the second for where to show the video. So on your site, to make things easier, we want to install the Insert Headers and Footers plugin.

Insert Headers and Footers

Add your code under Settings, Insert Headers and Footers and save the added code.

You will now be able to insert the second code into any text area you would like on your site.
