How do you embed photobucket uploaded videos?

  1. How do you do it? Or I can't use photobucket uploaded vids? Thanks for your time.

  2. Here are the instructions for the videos that are allowed on wordpress.com blogs (I don't see photobucket videos listed among them)
    "For security reasons we remove the tags needed for the above. Your intentions may be innocent but someone somewhere would try to damage the site. Currently we allow the linking to files from Google Video, Youtube, DailyMotion, Grouper, Odeo, and SplashCast."

  3. embeds are ususally removed from user input due to security concerns. Since this is a shared environment, if someone was able to gain access to the backend of the site, they would have access to all of the blogs.

    If you search for embed, you'll note that the subject has been discussed many times with links as well.

  4. Thank you. Sorry I've been a headache.

  5. You're not a headache. You just didn't understand the limitations of being on a wp multi-user blogging platform before but, you do now. Happy blogging. :)

  6. It's not a problem. :)
