    I went to upload a youtube video to my blog as I have plenty of times before. When I put the address in the URL box there is no button to insert it into post. I still have space left in my media upload, so I don’t know why this is happening now. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!

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

    I suggest that you try using the youtube video shortcode.

    I am having the same problem with video, and the option provided by timethief does not work either. I paste video several times every week and over the past two days have not been able to do so as there is no button ot insert it into post once I place the url in the box.

    Without a link to your blog, we cannot help you.

    The only times I have know the shortcode to fail were when I’d written it wrong or when the video had embedding disabled.

    The shortcode method isn’t to use any buttons at all.

    [youtube=URL]

    That is the shortcode method, and it always works.

    Hi- the shortcut method is not working for me either. I checked the vid and embedding is allowed. This is the vid:

    @musings123: I tried the following code (into the HTML editor) and it works perfectly.
    [youtube url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUdUW-PSIi8]
    Try copying and pasting it.

    Your the bomb. Thanks! I’m thinking maybe it was the hyperlink?

    Again: THE URL DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK.

    The SHORTCODE always works.
