Typically, I go: Upload/Insert Video From URL tab Click ” Audio, Video, or Other File” Then I copy YouTube URL And, normally this then embeds the video on my post. But, now, when going through all of these steps, I just see the link on the page, not the actual video.

It always works for me doing it that way. http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/#embedding-with-a-shortcode Author Posts The topic ‘Unable to embed youtube videos’ is closed to new replies.
