When YouTube launched in 2005, no one could have predicted quite how influential the platform would become.
Today, YouTube is the second most popular website in the world (the most popular being its parent company, Google), and the YouTube app can be found on mobile phones, tablets, televisions, streaming devices — you name it!
Most WordPress content is still published on regular WordPress sites and blogs, of course. However, there’s a growing number of great YouTube channels that are focused on WordPress, and videos are a great way of teaching others — whether via short tutorials or detailed walkthroughs for more complex topics.
Below (listed in no particular order), we’ll be taking a look at more than 15 of the best — and most popular — WordPress-related YouTube channels around today.
Let’s dive in…
Automattic publish presentations and tutorials from WordCamps on their website, WordPress.tv.
The videos uploaded to the website are hosted with VideoPress, but they also upload WordCamp videos to their YouTube channel regularly — many of which can’t be found on their website. Since the videos are presentations, they tend to be between 15 and 45 minutes long.
If you’re looking to stay up to date with what’s happening in the WordPress world, and want to see talks from important people in the industry, I recommend checking out WordPress.TV.
