embedding a video from Guardian

  1. I've been trying to embed a video from Guardian, but when I save the code was gone.

    The embed code:
    <iframe src="http://gu-embedded-video.appspot.com/?a=false&u=/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial" style="border:0; overflow:hidden;" scrolling="no" width="460px" height="397px"></iframe>

    Can anyone help me?

    The blog I need help with is iloaguiar.com.

  2. I'm sorry but that code is not directly supported. See here for a workaround > General instructions here:

  3. Hi, timethief! Thank you for response. I tried, but don't work well (maybe the problem was with the attributes, i don't know.

    In Posterous, the embed code from Guardian worked perfectly. :(

  4. iframe codes are stripped out here as this is a multiuser blogging platform and they are a security risk.

  5. That's an iframe, and iframes don't work here. If they supply flash code you can use the Gigya workaround.

  6. Thanks for the "flash" catch, raincoaster. I'm tired.

  7. I tried something like

    [gigya src="http://gu-embedded-video.appspot.com/?a=false&u=/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial"]

    but don't work. Don't exist something to emulate iframe?

  8. Go back to the Guardian and see if they have the Flash code.

  9. No. In the page:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial

    the only embed they have is with iframe:

    <!-- Start of guardian embedded video -->
    <!-- To prevent the video from auto playing set 'a=true' in the following line of code-->
    <iframe src="http://gu-embedded-video.appspot.com/?a=false&u=/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial" style="border:0; overflow:hidden;" scrolling="no" width="460px" height="397px"></iframe>
    <!-- End of guardian embedded video -->

  10. Well then all you can do is post an link to the video.

  11. Ok, thanks a lot!
