Flash video not showing up

    I often talk about things that happen on news shows whose sites create video plug-ins so that readers can see what I’m talking about. The code is embedded properly from these sites… like Comedy Central’s Daily Show, or Colbert Nation, to name an example.

    I was told that these videos never show up. The rest of the code works so that what’s supposed to show up around the embedded video is there. But no video. There’s at least a link for them to go to the site, but I’d rather they stay on the page. Can this be looked into? WordPress would become my primary blog location if this was fixed.

    The blog I need help with is stfugop.wordpress.com.



    Please provide URLs for the posts/pages with the video embeds in them so we can examine them.

    Are you using the correct guide for embedding videos? The video embeds that WordPress.com supports for all of our blogs – no upgrade required are found here.

    Sure. Sorry for delay. I posted embed code from Comedy Central’s Daily Show into this post: http://goo.gl/Y6s1GY

    The code comes from this page: http://goo.gl/PXeqBL

    This is the code inserted:
    <div style=”background-color:#000000;width:520px;”><div style=”padding:4px;”><iframe src=”http://media.mtvnservices.com/embed/mgid:arc:video:thedailyshow.com:255d0caa-ed01-11e0-aca6-0026b9414f30″ width=”512″ height=”288″ frameborder=”0″></iframe><p style=”text-align:left;background-color:#FFFFFF;padding:4px;margin-top:4px;margin-bottom:0px;font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;”><b>The Daily Show</b>

    As you can see in the WordPress post, a couple things show, but the video itself does not.
