en WordPress.com Forums › Support Embedding a Video Author Posts January 6, 2012 at 4:34 am #791848 thesinglefathersblogMember I have had several problems emedding a video on thesinglefathersblog.com. I am trying to embed a video from http://cnn.com/video/?/video/us/2012/01/05/pkg-lavandera-deported-teen.cnn but it won’t seem to work. Every time I embed it, it shows up as a link. This is not the first time that I have had this problem on this blog with a video. I have an older version of WP running on Showtimesays.com and I never seem to have this problem. Please give me instructions on embedding videos on this particular site as an administrator. The blog I need help with is thesinglefathersblog.com.

The videos we do have shortcodes for are: Blip.tv DailyMotion Flickr Video Google Video LiveVideo TED Talks Viddler Videolog Vimeo Vodpod YouTube January 6, 2012 at 5:18 am #791986 timethiefMember Edit: I typed “CSS video shortcode” when I meant to type CNN video shortcode” above.
