    I can’t seem to get a you-tube video to post on my blog. I’ve done this before, but for some reason I can’t get it to work. Suggestions?

    How, exactly, are you trying to put it on the blog? Are you using the shortcode, [youtube=URL]? That always works for me.

    Which video are you trying to post? does it say “embedding disabled by request?”

    I guess I got the code from the wrong place, Raincoaster. It didn’t look like yours. There was a button below the video on its original site that said “get embed code” and I naively thought, “Oh, this is where I get the code.” I had tried both the code and the URL from there, but as I said, the URL didn’t look like yours. So I went to the end of the video and got the URL off the screen. Guess what? It looked like yours, and it worked!

    Thanks! :)

    Anything that says Embed generally won’t work. Us the URL for YouTubes.
