en WordPress.com Forums › Support New You Tube Embed Code – AAAGGGHHHH Author Posts January 25, 2011 at 12:24 am #560618 archiearchiveMember Not needing help as I found a work-around. You Tube have changed their “Embed” again. it has an iframes html tag and produces a blank post when used as per normal WordPress protocol. I ended up finding an old video I had successfully posted and, cut and pasting, changed the old you tube url code (the bit after the “v=” for the new url code and that worked. It seems a bit long to do something that was simple but at least it is a way of getting it to work until the WordPress Wizards give us an easier way of doing it.

My problem is that I am extremely old and set in my ways – I missed this change when it came out :( Memos to self – must keep checking WP updates and must learn to change :) January 25, 2011 at 2:34 am #560830 macmanxStaff You’re welcome!
