I am creating a new blog at http://www.growthanddevelopment.wordpress.com for one of my economics classes. I'm trying to imbed a video using the html code provided by Google but maybe because its a wordpress.com blog, I can't seem to get it to work. When I publish it and go back to edit, there are the tags. How do I imbed the html without having these tags automatically put around the code? Thanks...

There are restrictions (as you know) on wp.com for using the embed tags. However, there is a way around it:
Will give you full instructions. I would paste them in here for you but apparently I can't highlight with my mouse this morning.
Google video, YouTube, and Grouper are the only three that WordPress will allow. I understand instructions are in the FAQ.
I tried doing everything with the instructions but its not working. Is it because the tags? If so, how can I avoid those? Argh!!
SWEET VICTORY!!!!!!! It works! Thanks guys!
You'll see what a WordPress newbie I am here: after reading these directions I know I need to put this code into the HTML:
However, when I click on the "HTML" button to insert this code into the page and save the page, all I get is the text listed above, not the video. Am I inserting the code into the wrong place?
Any help appreciated,
I think you're actually posting in the wrong place. Your username isn't linked to a blog here at wp.com. Usually that means you're hosted elsewhere and running different software than we are here. You need to be over at http://wordpress.org This is covered in the "please read me first before posting" sticky at the head of the forums.
Short answer though is that you need to have a video plugin. I usually recommend WP-ExtremeVideo. You can find it via a google search.
Hope this helps,
