    I found the bar with all the media options, but when I put a youtube url in it just makes it a link.

    I also tried a self edit with the outer brackets, but this too just shows up as text.

    Here’s the coding. You have to go into the Coding mode of the post.
    I had problems with it too

    Not working still. I went into html tab, and did the advised above, clicked on preview and only text is showing.

    Can you show the code?
    I’ll take a look again at mine …

    Youtube shortcodes should work exactly as before.

    Ok, when comparing the code to previously embeded video the html view font appears slightly larger (more spread out) than looking under “visual.”

    I have tried a series of different things.
    I began with the new button (this just creates a hyperlink to youtube)
    I tried to put the “embed” link from youtube in with the new video button, no go
    I tried to go straight to html, and add [ ] around the page of the video – with youtube=(my video page was inserted here) – as seen above

    (I just added spaces in the w’s , the closed full link is what I’ve been trying to put on the blog)

    That’s odd. I just tried your YouTube link (after closing the space). I hit Preview and was able to play the vid (PhotoShop music vid of a large woman being un-larged).

    Did the same thing and the video showed up also.

    It’s a conspiracy against me! LOL

    I believe you all. I’ll keep putzing with it I guess.

    I’ll check back here in a bit.

    Oh, now it’s working.

    Don’t be running away with the magic wand. I’m sure I’ll have some other issue shortly;)

    Just so you know, preview would not show the video. I had to republish and view the site to see it.

    Thanks,

    Jill
