Today, we all know that youtube short videos have become very famous. People love to watch these videos and they spent hours watching them. Recently, I also created a few youtube shorts of
Rumi Quotes for my website and decided to embed these shorts on my site. But when I clicked on the Youtube short video then I didn't find the option to embed the short video. First I thought that It is not possible to embed Youtube shorts and I left the plan to embed youtube shorts. But somehow, I was not convinced about it so I decided to search only. First I found some third-party widgets to embed the whole shorts video feed on your blog but it was not meant for me so I left this idea. 

Later, I did some experiments with iframe code but they also failed and I was about to leave the whole idea aside. Then I found a link with some useful information and on this page, I learnt that it is very easy to embed youtube shorts on your website and you just need to make small changes to your youtube short video URL for this purpose. 

A URL of Youtube Short Looks like this -

Option 1 https://www.youtube.com/shorts/M5WdS5Su6-c

and when we open this link then we don't find any embed link in it. 

Here we need to make a small change to this URL to make the embed option be shown to us. 

https://www.youtube.com/shorts/M5WdS5Su6-c

To do so just change the shorts (highlighted in red) with the watch (as highlighted in green) as

Option 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5WdS5Su6-c


You can see the difference by clicking on both the links in Options 1 and 2. 

You will see that when you click on option 1 then no embed button will be available. 

But when you will click on Option 2 the embed button will be visible. 

So here is the easy and simple method to add youtube short videos to our websites or blogs.
