    When I pust You tube videos on the way I’m supposed too and I try to click play, it says “We’re Sorry, this video is no longer available.” yet I can go watch it on you tube.

    IT’s weird. I refreshed the page and tryed playing the video and it worked. Huh?

    This is happening to me now, but reloading doesn’t help. Any ideas?

    You might be clicking too soon. When I had a youtube account it would take about an hour for the video to be posted to the public because it had to be processed

    what I had to do was go to youtube, find the video you want, download it and then upload (you have to have a youtube account) and then paste the new website link into where you want it on your website

    Their were some tech probs with Youtube over last weekend.
    If it is your blog that has the embedded video problem, go back to the video at you tube and recopy the code and replace it your post.

    YouTube has developed several problems over the past few months. That’s one of them. Another is that long videos tend to play to a certain point then go completely crazy. Oddly, if you then copy the URL and go to YouTube itself, the video plays correctly without a freakout.

    Yes I had problem with the videos going crazy towards the end of there play length too.

    Last weekend the I could not access youtube from any browser. I am not sure if the entire site went off line for a couple minutes. Since than I had to fix some videos and i had to re insert my vodpod widget.

    all is fine with me now, but I did not hear what the problem was.

    Yeah, YouTube was recently down. I didn’t get the details of how long as I figured they’d get it sorted out anyway.

    @ mrsedubose
    you have resized Youtube images on a post. They are resized.
    I was wondering if you did that with MP4 uploads or if you know away to resize youtube video at wordpress.com

    Wow, I’ve never seen YouTube videos that small — and in a Gallery too?! How did you do that?

    “I refreshed the page and tryed playing the video and it worked.”

    This happens all the time… it just means a connection has gone stale, it might be an idea to put some text under the YouTube letting people know they might have to reload the page if they see the message.

    Can you give us a link to the post on your blog where it isn’t working? Hard to guess what’s going on otherwise.

    My visitors are complaining about the same issue, but I myself have not discovered this issue yet. May be support here can check it out.

    Hi mikecane & dlager

    Basically you have to create a table..create how many rows you want.. To resize you just use the basic Youtube code and add “&w=300&h=200”..This is how you can change the default size…I have pasted my code for you.

    This is the youtube resizing code..you can change up w and h how you want it..
    youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=jcBpLKfQ1k8&feature=related&w=200&h=300]

    This is table code
    <table style=”width: 505px; height: 56px; text-align: center;” border=”1″ cellspacing=”0″ cellpadding=”0″>
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td style=”text-align:center;” width=”393″ valign=”top”>[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=jcBpLKfQ1k8&feature=related&w=200&h=300] 1</td>
    <td style=”text-align:center;” width=”399″ valign=”top”>[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=wIgO9kAOsXI&feature=related&w=200&h=300]2</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td style=”text-align:center;” width=”393″ valign=”top”>[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=w0NHl8e50No&feature=related&w=200&h=300]3</td>
    <td width=”399″ valign=”top”>[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=MwA34g1ciiY&feature=related&w=200&h=300] 4</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td style=”text-align:center;” width=”393″ valign=”top”>[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=uZqzGCulw9M&feature=related&w=200&h=300]5</td>
    <td style=”text-align:center;” width=”399″ valign=”top”>[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=m16qxDBTwJ0&feature=related&w=200&h=300]6</td>
    </tr>
    </tbody></table>

    Wow, thanks for that. Neat trick.

    #213834

    I knew about resizing youtube, done it in blog entries. But whenever I’ve tried to that in sidebar, it did not work. Have you had success doing this, mrsedubose? :)

    and without it it made my table cells really big.
