The following steps are for taking a Facebook Video and embedding it into WordPress
Step 1) Find the post of the video on your Facebook page and click on the date/time in the subtitle. For example, look at the pink box in the image below.
Step 2) Copy the URL on the next page.
Step 3) Paste the URL into a blog post of your choosing on it’s own line.
Step 4) (Optional) You can also change the Format of the post to be “Video” this helps WordPress understand to use the first video URL it finds as the featured post of the video
Don’t just stop there! You could even link to a Facebook image or post as well.
Basically it is just COPY and PASTE.
