YouTube Embedding not happening by copying link

  1. I want to embed a video and I read this on your support: "To quickly embed a YouTube video, simply copy the video’s URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the video, paste it on a line by itself in your post/page editor and we take care of the rest!" But Here is the link to my Blog: http://songsonloop.wordpress.com/ You can see that I have pasted the embeded link as well as normal youtube link. It is not being embeded. Reason? And what to do now?

  2. Make sure the YouTube link is not hyperlinked. http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/#troubleshooting

  3. See if it will work if you use the "long link" it's in the Share section on YouTube.

  4. This is most likely a case of the URL being hyperlinked. Frankly, I use the youtube shortcode and it works every time.

  5. See if it will work if you use the "long link" it's in the Share section on YouTube.

  6. Why are you posting that over and over again?

    Do not change anything in the shortcode link I post below. Go to your most recent post and edit it.

    Remove the youtube link and this too:

    <iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/qrO4YZeyl0I” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>
    <iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/qrO4YZeyl0I” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>

    Then in the Text editor type the shortcode onto a line by itself and publish the post.

  8. Guys, I am sorry to bug you, but it just isn't happening. Even in the my second post I am not able to embed. Here's the link to my Blog:
    http://songsonloop.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/talk-that-talk/

    I have used both the links to the YouTube video, the embedding one as well as the normal from the address bar (At the top and bottom of the text)

    I also tried to change my theme. Please give me some solution and if possible, the reason for this problem.
