Help, how can i post a youtube video?

  1. Hi i am having a heck of a time trying to post a video! I read the instructions carefully and tried for the past 40 minutes to no avail! I copied the embeded code and pasted into my blog post and its just not coming out right! I also tried the video, send to editor and that is not working either!!!! HELP!!!

  2. Where are you inserting the embed code? I've tried it before and I assumed it had to go into the code tab but it actually works when I paste it into the visual editor; clicking save makes it appear on the blog straight away. Is that what you're doing?

    The send to editor should work as well, as long as you use the url. What happens when you save the post? Do you just see nothing or lines of code or what? Or can you provide a link to a post where the video should be showing? It might help if we can see it for ourselves.

  3. Ok, i will do the post with the video in the post and how it looks when i publish, i do not want to keep it there to long because it looks ridiculous but here goes:http://runningdowndreams.wordpress.com/ please check out fast otherwise i will delete!!! Thanks though, i appreciate your help cjwriter!

  4. In the post dated March 18th the video is embedded correctly, but the one on top is not. It must be the coding somehow.

  5. Okay I had a look and for some reason it looks like the code got mixed up. I'm not sure how that happened but try adding this into a post and click save and continue editing (not publish) and then click preview. That way it won't publish to your blog but you'll be able to see if it's working. It's working for me fine when I try it in a test post.

  8. Getting nuts here....i posted to my blog and somehow its a different font than i normally use...how did this happen? I do not know how to change it....again HELP!

  9. Looks like fussing with the video created several extra tags which changed the font. Yikes, it didn't used to be this hard to insert a video!

    First thing: click over to the code tab and copy everything that's in there into Notepad so you don't lose it. Then go back to the visual tab. There's an icon in your editor that removes all formatting (number 17 G below); use that and hopefully it should fix it. If it removes the video as well, just copy the code again and paste it in.
