00:28 David Blackmon: Hey everybody welcome to another episode of WP The Podcast brought to you by WP Gears. I’m David Blackmon.
00:35 Tim Strifler: And I’m Tim Strifler.
00:37 David Blackmon: Today in episode 645 we’re going to talk about how to embed Tik Tok videos into your WordPress website. Unless you’ve been sleeping and living under a rock you probably know what Tik Tok is, but i’ll go ahead and tell you anyways before we tell you how to insert it into your wordpress website. Tik Tok is the latest craze social media platform where you can it’s a video you know you can make videos of yourself and then post them on the Tik Tok platform. There is some you know a lot of stuff going around about the security of tick tock so I want to just put this out there that we’re not saying “go download Tik Tok today”, because if I’m not mistaken it’s a pretty they’re they’re capturing all the data not that all the other apps that you install on your phone and stuff don’t do that, but I want to say that uh some of the articles that I’ve read, Tik Tok takes it to the extreme. They get everything so just be aware of that if you decide to start using this platform, but needless to say it’s the rage my kids love it, that’s what they do all day long, and I’ve seen a lot more adults more, more adults using this platform for sheer entertainment, laughing all the time, it’s funny videos, it’s uh…It’s just a new great platform to entertain yourself I guess Tim, so I’m not a Tik Toker, so I can’t really you know, give you personal experience.
02:10 Tim Strifler: I was going to say the same thing. While like you said everyone’s probably heard about it, I’ve definitely heard about it and kind of seen things posted and I know what it is, but like you David, I am not a Tik Toker, never downloaded the app, never really watched any videos from Tik Tok, but I do hear that it is all the rage, and so uh if you’re building wordpress websites chances are um actually maybe not chances are but there might be a case where you need to embed Tik Tok videos into your WordPress Website for a client or for your own purposes. And so um here’s the thing it’s actually super super easy. WordPress has it built into where it’ll automatically embed so like wordpress has it built in for for Vimeo videos and Youtube and um different things like that Spotify if you just paste a link to a video or audio file on one of those platforms and now including Tik Tok it automatically embeds it. You don’t have to do anything you don’t have to add any extra plugins you don’t have to deal with embed code and html and all that you just paste the link into the browser. And so that’s it there’s no secret that’s just what you do and how you do it um not really much else to talk about here. We will post an article in case you want a little bit more information from WPbeginner so if you wanted to do more than just a video and for example you wanted to embed a feed you can embed a Tik Tok feed using a Tik Tok feed plug-in from quad layers it’s a free plug-in in the WordPress repository and basically any time a Tik Tok profile posts new stuff it’ll show up there automatically. But for single videos you don’t have to do anything you just paste the link and WordPress does the rest.
03:55 David Blackmon: Awesome! Well there you go super easy WordPress is getting better and better every day and got a new release coming out soon. Tim and I are going to cover that in a future podcast episode as well. Tomorrow we’re going to start a new series called our Virtual Studio Series where Tim and I are going to discuss in depth the things that we use to run our businesses whether it’s manage our product business our WordPress clients websites, record these podcasts, do live streams, all the marketing and stuff. And it’s not going to be an everyday thing, because we don’t want to bore you to death. This is a WordPress Podcast and so we kind of want to keep it WordPress related and stuff and we don’t want to lose you. So every you know we’re going to start the series but it won’t be sequential there’s going to be some great topics in between and stuff. But we’re going to dive deeper into like our video camera the the camera that tim and i use and why we use it
so tune in tomorrow to catch that episode. Tim until tomorrow we’ll see you then.
