Finding the YouTube Shorts Video
The first step in the process to embed YouTube Shorts is to find the video you want to use. Here’s how you do it:
- Navigate to the YouTube Shorts you want to embed.
- Click on the video to let it auto-play.
Copying the Video URL
Once you’ve found the YouTube Shorts video you want to embed, the next step is to copy the video URL. Here’s how:
- Right-click on the video.

Embed YouTube Shorts in Elementor
Now that you have the video URL, it’s time to embed it in Elementor. Follow these steps:
- Go to your Elementor video widget.
- Paste the copied URL into the widget.
Your link will look like this: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/SXHMnicI6Pg?feature=share
At this point, you might notice that the video doesn’t appear immediately. But don’t worry, we just need to make a small adjustment to the URL.
Adjusting the URL for Elementor YouTube Shorts Embedding
The URL needs a small tweak to work properly. Here’s what you need to do:
- Change the word ‘shorts’ in the URL to ’embed’.
After this adjustment, the video will automatically embed correctly in the Elementor video widget.
Optional URL Adjustment
There’s another optional adjustment you can make to the URL. Here’s what you can do:
- You can remove the ‘?feature=share’ at the end of the URL.
This adjustment will make the URL look a bit cleaner. But whether you make this adjustment or not, your YouTube Shorts video will still be embedded in your Elementor page.
