Videos »Brightcove

Brightcove is an online video hosting platform. Videos on Brightcove can be embedded directly into your WordPress.com pages and posts.

To embed a Brightcove video, first add the Shortcode block into a page or post. Then, you can add the Brightcove shortcode using this format:

[brightcove video_id="XXXXXXXXXX" account_id="XXXXXXXXXX" player_id="XXXXXXXXX-XXaa-XaXX-aaaX-XXXXXaaXXXXX" width=800 height=600]

To construct the shortcode, you will need the:

  • Video ID
  • Account ID
  • Player ID

In the URL for your video on Brightcove, you can find each of IDs as illustrated here:

Paste each of the three IDs into the relative part of the shortcode, making sure to keep the ” ” marks.

You can also adjust the width=800 height=600 values to change the width and height of the video player.
