Issue Embedding YouTube Playlist

  1. Hi, I'm extremely new around here. I'm not trying to embed a youtube video, but rather a youtube PLAYLIST. Video embedding works for me, but playlist doesn't and I would LOVE some help.

    Here's the embed code youtube gives me:

    <object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/p/4BD0B3B989298176?hl=en_US&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/p/4BD0B3B989298176?hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    And here's the playlist URL:

    http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=4BD0B3B989298176

    But no matter what I do, it keeps coming up blank when I publish. Or, if not blank, than it just shows the url name and that's it. No playlist.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

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

  2. You may be able to embed this Flash using a gigya shortcode. Please see here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/category/gigya/

  3. @sochya,
    [gigya src="http://www.youtube.com/p/4BD0B3B989298176?hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"]

    This is the code that you need. I modified the flash code to gigya shortcode, a method of embedding Flash content in wp.com (I learned it from Panos, author of the blogger timethief is referring to).

  4. Thank you both so much! That worked! You're best! <3

  5. That did work :) Thanks!

  6. @sochya and soundendurance,
    You are welcome!

  7. Excellent tidbit of info - most appreciated. I was becoming annoyed with having to post individual videos.

  8. Is there any way to customize the youtube player? For example having thumbnails of other videos within the playlist, shown alongside the player.

    Not that I am aware of.
