    youtube videos not embedding. I simply cut and past a video URL into my blog post - following the directions and on the blog it doesn't even come up as linked and an image of the video does not appear either. Please help. I've tried everything. Thx.

    I had the same problem and here's what I did (your situation may not be exactly the same as mine so apologies if it doesn't work for you):

    I opened a YouTube page and viewed my video then I cut the URL from the address bar at the top the browser (not the url from the share or embed option) and pasted it into a blank line in my WP editor (ordinary editor, not the HTML editor). It appeared as a hot link (coloured and underlined text) so I unlinked it. When I published the post the video appeared as I wanted it. Hope it works for you.
