    So you upload a video on your wordpress site (self-hosted), and then you want to embed that video on some other site external site. How to get the embed link?

    Is there a native way to get it, or maybe a plugin that can be used?

    p.s I google it, but all results are embedding internally or embedding Youtube, so no help in this case

    I think what you're asking is how to iframe your website? This is complex and often not very SEO friendly.

    If not you just give the link to the MP4 file on your site and you serve it.

    Does that help?

    Right click the video and hit " Copy Video Link". You can also inspect the page and find the Video URL.
