    How do I add the BBC news website as a media provider so I can add their videos to posts? I'm not interested in installing another add-on to do this.

    Do they offer an embed URL with a single parameter which can be extracted for the content?

    That's just a regular URL - it wouldn't be possible to embed the media with that.

    That's just a share link to the page.

    The BBC apparently does make some video content available for embedding:


    However most of it seems to not be embeddable (they tend to like you going to their sites and/or playing it in BBC iplayer).

    Thank you @Alfa1 . I was hoping that I wouldn't have to install an add-on, but I may end up doing it with the one you linked to.
