    I can't seem to post videos on my post, every time i copy a link and click publish it justs says publishing but never does. i've waited over an hour but nothing happens
    Blog url: http://graemeedwardson.wordpress.com/

  2. Have you tried using a different link or format such as one of these?
    To embed video in wordpress.com just paste the url on a line on its own.

    Embedding with a Shortcode

    To customize the video’s size and settings, use a shortcode. You can do this by copying the video URL:

    Then create a shortcode using the format below. Be sure to replace the URL listed here with the URL of your video, and the code is on a line by itself.

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A]

    ↑ Table of Contents ↑
    Video Customization Options

    You can specify the width and height of the embedded video by adding &w=... or &w=...&h=...to the shortcode. It will automatically adapt to your theme’s content length and give you preferred dimensions.

    You can disable related videos by appending &rel=0
    You can turn on the search box by appending &showsearch=1

    For example, this shortcode:

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A&w=640&h=385]

    More Examples:

    To embed the video with default width and height adapted to your theme:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A]
    To specify the width and height explicitly:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A&w=320&h=240]
    To specify the width only:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A&w=320]
    To hide the related videos from appearing after the video is done:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A&rel=0]
    To show the YouTube search box:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A&showsearch=1]

    I use the shortcode that realismbegins refers to. You didn't state where the video was from. These are the vidoes that are supported:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/

    Embedding with a URL - Make sure the link is not hyperlinked. If the URL is shown in your theme’s link color (as the second line in the screenshot below), then it is hyperlinked. Simply select the whole URL and click the “Unlink” icon on your Visual Editor toolbar.

  4. Thanks for the second paragraph in your post timetheif, I wasn't aware of that.

    I will add it to my how to files.

  5. You're welcome.
