Recipe Video

See the Recipe Video feature in action

In the Media section you’re able to upload or embed a video for the recipe. These videos will be added to the recipe metadata automatically.

Embedding a Video

For embedding you can just paste a link to the video for most popular video sites, use their embed code or optionally any WordPress shortcode they provide. Anything that works inside the post content should work here as well. Just a few of the video embed codes that are supported:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Mediavine
  • AdThrive

We'll automatically retrieve the video markup from these providers and add that to the recipe metadata. Take note that not all providers return all metadata Google wants to see.

Showing the Recipe Video outside of the recipe box

By default these videos will be shown inside the recipe box. If you don’t want this, you could remove the video field from your own recipe template in the Template Editor and add the [wprm-recipe-video] shortcode wherever in the post content you want the video to appear instead.

The upside of adding the video to the recipe is that it will be included in the recipe metadata. The location of the video on your page (inside or outside the recipe box) doesn’t matter, but has to be added to the recipe so we can use the markup.
