    Hi,

    I’d like to embed video from a Google Drive space to my WordPress blog.

    Whenever I insert the code ( <iframe src=”https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzX7I8yvCSgEQTFRMkpHU0VDY3M/preview” width=”640″ height=”385″></iframe> ) into the text area of the editor and save draft, the code is removed.
    Youtube works.

    Does WP.com not allow any video embedding to move users to your own video hosting service?

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

    I’m sorry, but that embed code will not work because we remove JavaScript, Flash, iframe, form, and input tags for security reasons.

    Here you can find more information on how to add video to your blog.

    I understand.

    However, just check it: the Google Drive embed code is basically the same as the YouTube embed code. I see you truncate the YouTube iframe code anyway.. why could not it be possible with the Google Drive embed code as well?
