    I have been trying to embed a you tube video in my blog using the format found on the faq page. I am still unable to do it. I get a white square in my post, but no video screen. Any suggestions?

    – Pointing us to an example and showing us what you have done would help… :)

    I have added it back to my blog scienceofbehavior.wordpress.com. It is the latest entry.

    Thanks

    This is what is showing up when I pull up your post.

    http: //www.youtube.com/v/_GRpqrT9tuUAhttpyoutubecomwv_GRpqrT9tuUAa

    So it looks like you might not have the hang of adding it to your post. I can’t find the video you’re trying to link to so I’ll use an example of one from my blog.

    What you should be putting in your post looks more like this:

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for this post. I found this link:
    http://wordpress.com/blog/2006/01/26/youtube-support/
    That was Matt’s original announcement about YouTube, but where it says copy and paste the above it shows a video instead of the section you posted above:
    [youtube=http://youtube.com/w/?v=0GiYWnfX6fg]

    It worked like a charm for me. It even worked like this:

    (and this is a nice dance from So You Think You Can Dance)

    DrMike – that link you posted to your blog returned a “page not found error”…

    Actually it was 4.1.

    The 11 characters were ‘GRpqrT9tuUA’ if you can cut and paste them.

    How weird I clicked the drmike’s blog link which has now been removed and I watched the video.

    Going over to YouTube says that it was removed for copyright violation due to a report from Turner.

    Why Turner is going after a Star Wars fan work, I don’t have a clue but… *shrug*
