Please Help! Can't post any videos

  1. I have followed exactly the instructions to post youtube videos on my blog for a long time, but for two weeks, I CAN'T post any youtube videos anymore.

    Please help me out. I greatly appreciate your time.

    Best Regards,

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

  2. Please clear your browser cache and cookies first and if your browser version outdated please upgrade it. Then follow these instructions for posting the youtube video shortcode.

  3. Thank you so much for your follow up. I have just done what being told but the issue still persists. I have no idea what's going... The post just shows up with the link itself not the video...

    Anyone, please help me out...? Thank you so much.

  4. Will you please post the URL for the video?

  5. Hi Maipham,

    Posting video on your post is quite tricky you do not know the tricks on managing the embedded code of you video.
    Copy the embedded code not the link, if you take the video from youtube.
    Then in your posting window, switch to "HTML" not in "Visual" view.
    Then paste the embedded code on where you want the video to appear on your post.

    I hope this will help.
    Thanks...

    Did you remember to "break link" the url that you pasted? My wife had the same problem, until we found out, that if the youtube-video-url is a link, it will appear as a link, not a video.

    I use the youtube video shortcode and it works every time. I don't even click the media button. No mucking about with breaking of links is required. Whether or not I use the Visual editor or the HTML editor makes no difference. I simply type the shortcode in between square [] brackets as the support documentation illustrates youtube shortcode into my post or page and click "save draft" and the video appears each and every time I do it. When I publish the post the video is in it every time.

  9. Thank you so much for all the replies. I greatly appreciate it. Let me try and will let you guys informed.

    Thanks.

  10. Dear all,

    I have posted videos from youtube and dailymotion for a long time and have NOT had any problems with posting videos. But, for about two weeks, I can't post videos anymore.

    I also tried timethief's recommendations but then the issue still persisted. Therefore, I decided to uninstall my browser to see how it works. Surprisingly, I'm able to post videos.

    Anyway, thank you for all help. Very appreciate!

    Thanks so much for returning and sharing the fact this was a browser issue and you have now resolved it. Best wishes with your blog. :)

  16. No, I haven't ... have read and read - wasn't to sure I need for audio and video.
    Thanks will do so.
