Embedded videos not appearing correctly?

  1. I have two wordpress.com blogs that I use for embedding YouTube videos, both using the same theme (Selecta). One of them embeds videos fine, but the other one (that I'm logged in as) doesn't seem to be able to embed videos correctly, and just displays it as writing. This also happens when I try changing the theme to something different that I know can support video too.

    Any tips please?! It's probably a very easy thing I'm not doing correctly. ..

    The blog I need help with is dancefordolly.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm having the same problem. I used to embed videos into my blog with no problem and with the new format I cannot do so.

    My blog is http://www.cricketmuse.wordpress.com

    Thanks

    Please stop what you are doing to embed them and instead use the shortcode. Example: your latest post type this without changing anything at all onto a single line

    Please try using the shortcode. It's never failed for me.
