And a simple way to make your Divi website even more engaging is to show relevant YouTube videos.

After all, based on our detailed research on social media marketing statistics, 81% of marketers agree that video content has helped them get more sales.

In fact, you can display video testimonials of your products to easily boost your conversions and convince people to buy from you.

The positive reviews and testimonials can work as social proof, which shows that tons of people out there are using your products.

And here are a few more reasons you should embed YouTube playlists on your Divi website:

  • By showing long videos on your Divi site, you can keep visitors interested for much longer and get better SEO
  • You can post a playlist of your own videos to get tons of new views, likes, and YouTube subscribers
  • Since YouTube playlists can have tons of videos, you can offer more options to your website visitors
  • To convert even more people into customers, you can embed a playlist of tutorials and demonstrations of your products
  • And a lot more…

As you can see, embedding YouTube playlists can help you grow your channel, get more sales, engage your visitors, and more. 

Can You Embed a YouTube Playlist in Divi WordPress Websites?

Yes, you can embed YouTube playlists on your Divi website using 2 different methods:

  • Manual Way: Fetch the URL or the embed code of the playlist and then add it to your Divi site
  • Easy Way: Let a YouTube plugin automatically embed the YouTube playlists for you

If you use the manual way of embedding a YouTube playlist, you can only highlight a single video at once.

Your visitors will have to click on a small button to see the other videos on your playlist. So, many visitors might not even realize that you’ve embedded a playlist.

What’s more, you’ll have to be familiar with coding or hire a designer to customize how the YouTube playlist looks.

As a result, your YouTube videos might clash with the design of your carefully built Divi website.

And if anything goes wrong when embedding the YouTube playlists, you won’t have a support team to lend you a hand.

The good news is that you can avoid all these problems by using a WordPress plugin like YouTube Feed Pro.

What’s more, you can use this plugin to embed a whole lot more than YouTube playlists. You can embed YouTube channels, search results, favorites lists, live streams, and more.
