    Whenever i try to embedd Youtube-Videos into my blog all that appears is a big blank box.
    I’ve tried it using the [youtube=youtube/asdf]-method as well as copying the embedd-code in HTML-mode. Nothing seems to work.

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

    The site linked to your name has been deleted.
    Are you asking about another wp..COM blog?

    If so:
    A YouTube video you like (from from Google, other SE, a blog or site you were viewing, where ever) —> choose “Share this Video” (do not choose Embed!!!) —> copy that URL —> insert URL into the add video pop-up —> or into shortcode in html [youtube=SIMPLE_YOUTUBE_URL]

    This is strange because I have the same problem today. I uploaded two videos on you tube today and I just copied and pasted the embed code into wordpress blog and it does not work like it work a week ago. Actually,the videos I posted on my wordpress blog last week are still there….and if I copy them into todays post they work just fine. only the videos I uploaded today do not work. So, what is the problem?

    I should add that I did try to copy only the URL and add it thru the add vidoe options as it is suggested above, but the new videos still will not show up, the old videos would work just fine.
