embedding video does not work

    Why can I not embed video to my blog? I’ve tried to insert embed code several times and I get nothing but the printed code in my post. I don’t want to post a link to a video, I want to embed the actual video. I had no problem doing this with blogspot. What’s the deal?

    When this happens, it usually means that there is a link configured on the URL you pasted.

    Please do one of the following:

    – In Visual mode: select the URL, and click on the Unlink button in the toolbar (the broken chain link icon)

    or

    – In HTML mode: delete the and HTML tags before and after the video URL

    Your video should be embedded normally after you update your post.

    I’m sorry but I don’t understand what you’re saying. Are you referring to the video URL or the embed code?

    Ah, the issue is that you’re using embed codes, which we don’t allow for security rasons. Just paste the URL of the video you wish to embed and it’ll be embedded automatically for you. If you wish to add additional configuration parameters to your video, you might want to use our shortcode. You can read full documentation for YouTube embeds here.
