The Easiest Way to Embed Videos in Drupal 8

Video Embed is a very useful module for Drupal 8 users.

Video Embed creates a field type that allows you to embed videos from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Vine and many other sources. All you have to do is enter the video URL and this module will do the rest.

Video Embed will create a thumbnail preview, control the autoplay settings and also ensure that the video is responsive.

I check this video and very useful. I tried the same way but getting “Could not find a video provider to handle the given URL.” error. I search for solution but could not get any proper answer. Any clue?
P.S. I am using Drupal 8.1.2


Hi Hiral,
My guess is that your URL has a special character in it. Could you copy and paste what URL you’re using?
