I am not able to embed tubechop, using any of the means WordPress has available for other video embedding. Others who’ve used WordPress advise they’ve successfully embedded tubechops, but I’m now wondering if WordPress no longer supports it. Can anyone help?

The blog I need help with is prufrocksdilemma.wordpress.com.
These are the only video embeds that WordPress.com supports > http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/
What WordPress.com officially supports doesn’t equal what you can embed. You can embed any video that provides a flash embed code (and that includes Tubechop videos). In the case of Tubechop, you copy this part of the embed code:
<embed src="http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf?VARIABLES HERE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed>
and turn it to this:
[gigya src="http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf" flashvars="VARIABLES HERE" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344" ]
Paste into Text (=code) editor. Dimensions can be changed (proportionately).
Hi, justpi: I must be doing something wrong, perhaps in terms of where the variables begin and end. I hope you might be able to help.
The tubechop video is here:http://www.tubechop.com/watch/525293
Here is the embed code I’m working with:
<object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf?vurl=1bW6XEGluvw&start=0&end=36&cid=525293″></param><embed src=”http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf?vurl=1bW6XEGluvw&start=0&end=36&cid=525293″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object>
and here’s what I tried to turn it into. (The first time I got a totally different video’ I went back to correct as best I could, and now all I’m getting is this message: embed_shortcode: is not a valid URL)
[gigya src="http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf” flashvars="1bW6XEGluvw&start=0&end=36&cid=525293" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"]
Thanks for any help you can give!
The variables are the string that starts right after the questionmark (and ends at the quotation mark). So the shortcode should be:
[gigya src="http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf" flashvars="vurl=1bW6XEGluvw&start=0&end=36&cid=525293" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344" ]
But this is a YouTube video actually, so why embed it via Tubechop instead of using one of the standard WP ways of embedding a YT video?
That worked! As to your question, would that I could, but I think if you look closely you’ll see this is a tubechop from an existing Youtube video, not the video itself. But most of all, thank you so, so much for all your help. I never would have figured this out on my own!
And sorry, I hadn’t noticed it was just a part of the original YT video.
