Embedding Youtube and Vimeo videos in Gutenberg is even easier than it was with the classic WordPress editor.  Embed Blocks allow you to add content from other websites (videos from YouTube, tweets from Twitter, an event from meetup.com, etc.) into your own pages.

Step 1– Hover your mouse over the Add Block icon (the plus sign in the upper left hand corner within the Gutenberg editor).

Step 2 – Scroll to Embeds. Under that section you will see different formats of embeds you can add to your page. For the sake of this example, we’ll use Embed option.

Step 3- Depending on which type of embed you’ve selected, you will be prompted to add a  link of the content you want to embed. In this example a Youtube video will be embedded, so a Youtube video link will be used.

Step 5 – Once you have added your link in the block, your embed content will be displayed. Remember to save and publish your page, when you’re finished.

That’s it, you’ll find over 30 different media providers to embed into your site such as funny or die, wordpress.tv, and more.
