In WordPress, “Embed” refers to the ability to easily add external content such as videos, images, and other media from various sources into your WordPress posts and pages.
When you embed content, it means displaying content from another website on your own website, without manually uploading the media to your own server.
WordPress supports the embedding of content from various sources including YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Twitter, and many others. To embed content in WordPress, you simply need to copy and paste the URL of the content into your post or page editor, and WordPress will automatically convert it into an embedded format that can be played or viewed on your website.
By making it easy to embed content from other sources, WordPress makes it simple for website owners to share rich media content with their audience, without having to go through the hassle of hosting it on their own servers or managing complex embed code.
