    I’ve been trying to embed a video from Guardian, but when I save the code was gone.

    The embed code:
    <iframe src=”http://gu-embedded-video.appspot.com/?a=false&u=/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial” style=”border:0; overflow:hidden;” scrolling=”no” width=”460px” height=”397px”></iframe>

    Can anyone help me?

    The blog I need help with is iloaguiar.com.

    I’m sorry but that code is not directly supported. See here for a workaround > General instructions here:

    Hi, timethief! Thank you for response. I tried, but don’t work well (maybe the problem was with the attributes, i don’t know.

    In Posterous, the embed code from Guardian worked perfectly. :(

    iframe codes are stripped out here as this is a multiuser blogging platform and they are a security risk.

    That’s an iframe, and iframes don’t work here. If they supply flash code you can use the Gigya workaround.

    Thanks for the “flash” catch, raincoaster. I’m tired.

    I tried something like

    [gigya src="http://gu-embedded-video.appspot.com/?a=false&u=/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial"]

    but don’t work. Don’t exist something to emulate iframe?

    Go back to the Guardian and see if they have the Flash code.

    No. In the page:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial

    the only embed they have is with iframe:

    <!– Start of guardian embedded video –>
    <!– To prevent the video from auto playing set ‘a=true’ in the following line of code–>
    <iframe src=”http://gu-embedded-video.appspot.com/?a=false&u=/world/datablog/video/2010/jul/25/afghanistan-war-logs-video-tutorial” style=”border:0; overflow:hidden;” scrolling=”no” width=”460px” height=”397px”></iframe>
    <!– End of guardian embedded video –>
