Need help? Check out our Support site, then


Youtube video

  1. I have tried to contact wordpress support but, I have not heard from them (5 days ago). Anyway, my Youtube videos are not showing up in my blog. They only appear as links. Please help. Thanks!

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

  2. You have to use the wordpress.com youtube shortcode to display youtube videos here.

  3. We also need a link to the site you are talking about. The site linked to your username has been deleted.

    I noticed in "support" that it needs to have "watch" in the link.

    However, when I try to put in a video from a channel, like the UN's (http://www.youtube.com/user/unitednations#p/u/5/vW6jvIFnyY8), which doesn't have "watch" in the URL, it doesn't work.

    Help!

  5. @goodgroundpress : That's not a video. That's a user channel. Embedding only works for videos. Please follow these instructions to get an URL that you can use in WordPress.com:
