Hey there thesacredpath:
I've been working on this situation for hours now....just about all day. I do appreciate your help more than my words can ever express.
Personally, after trouble shooting code, re-writing, cutting/pasting, embed or URL, here is my summation:
I have had no trouble whatsoever finding, or watching the video at YouTube. Just type in the search box "DFH" and it will pop right up. This is how I was able to compare code from original or too see if there were any changes.
In addition, yesterday before coming to the forum I thought I'd step out and maybe a step up so I established a Vodpod account. If one were at my site, http://americanage.wordpress.com from the Digg 3 theme look at my (Number 1) right sidebar and at the bottom there is a widget that has the video in it.
And finally, I recently upgraded to IE v 8; it's been a real eye opener insofar as last night I saw more items added to my other site, http://onemorecup.wordpress.com than I bargined for, for example: In my sidebar ALL of the items listed from "Recent Posts" to the bottom had round 'o' bullets in front. It looked cool and yet, they're gone today. Furthermore, the videos I've placed on the aforementioned site (The Thinker) are kaput as well....in other words, no videos anywhere.
Lastly I mentioned that I upgraded to IE v 8; Do you think--reasonably--that the problem could exist there or should I upgrade my Shockwave player as well? Well, strike that last one, I just upgraded them to v.11.
As I said I sincerely appreciate your assistance. I have not violated anyone's TOS and nothing has been pulled from anyone. Oh yes!! Just one last issue: when I peruse the "View Source" option it is now in visual basic rather than in WordPress' code. Does this help? CHEERS MATE!
