WP video upgrade spam that prevents me from sharing videos

    The video upgrade spam appears when I try to share a video in a post, at the point where I click the video icon. I can’t delete the spam, even though there are buttons on it supposedly for that purpose. When I try to ignore it and click the video icon again, a duplicate spam appears. Is anyone else having this problem? I sent a message to the “Happiness Engineers” last night but haven’t heard back yet. Meanwhile, I’m unable to share videos.

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

    I’m also encountering the same problem. Has WordPress, once again, disabled Video-sharing, as part of its free-services and turned that into a monetizing feature?

    One of the reasons that draws people to this site instead of its competitions is its flexibility and vast array of valuable features, which include the Video-sharing feature. I sincerely request that they bring it back.

    Attention Everyone
    You can still post YouTube videos for free as you always have. See the thread below

    Thanks for that, airodyssey – it works. Begs the question of why WP chose to use the Insert Video icon, which is surely there for a purpose and the method a lot of people use, to plug their upgrade. And without telling anyone. Definitely underhanded.
