    I noticed a new wordpress look when I logged in to write a new post. Nice new look. But when I tried to upload my you tube video, it doesn’t allow it anymore. Now when I go to “add video” and copied my you tube url, it gave me a much shorter ones after inserting into post and saving it. The shorter url link just appeared on the post preview and no you tube window is visible. Please help.

    I encountered the same problem too… Although the new features have been added to the top of the editing bar, when I tried to upload a media file into the post an error message appeared….. My upload video could not be allowed to be uploaded…. What happen? Any body out there found a solutions?

    ALWAYS look down the forum page to see if there’s already another thread on the exact same topic. Because sometimes it has the solution in it:


    Hi raincoaster,

    Yes, I do search the forum before asking the question and I did look at the thread you linked here before asking. I did everything that were suggested there and tried many times and didn’t work. However, strangely it worked now when I copied the URL of you tube video onto the media box. There were obviously some bugs in the new format. Anyway, I am just happy that I can upload the video now. Thanks everyone for the response.



    raincoaster – I just did the same as myitchyfingers and there is no resolution in that thread, it started before the new editing format … how do we embed utube videos?
    Can it not be done anymore?


    You do it the same way you did it before:

    [youtube=URL of the video] . Put it right into the visual editor, or into the HTML editor, both seem to work just fine.
