WordPress – Search Posts that contain YouTube videos in the Content

Promoting your content online requires you to do a great job. For example, if you have a YouTube channel and you also have a WordPress blog, you may have inserted some videos in your posts to promote your channel. Or possibly you have a tutorial blog and have inserted the tutorial videos at the end of each post.

One way or another, now you want to find all the posts you added videos to in order to edit them. However, that would take a long time if you had to open the posts one by one to check them out.
