    We need a link to your blog, starting with http, in order to let you know. Also, those are TEACHERTUBE videos, not YouTube videos.

    Try using Vodpod to post the videos. Let us know if you’re still stuck.

    We need the link to the YouTube videos that are not working, then. Usually this is because they are set to private or embedding is disabled.

    Try the ordinary shortcode, [youtube=URL] and get the URL from the More box on the side of the video. That always works, except in the above circumstances.

    For security reasons, same as all other unapproved Flash applications.

    This worked for me.

    I played my YouTube video on YouTube.com. I copied the EMBED CODE from YouTube and pasted it into my WordPress blog post in the HTML side. I updated the post and it worked! The day I created the YourTube video it would not work. Nor the day after. Third day was the charm. Don’t ask me why.

    @sarahelliot, Use the vodpod wordpress button to embed other video types: http://support.wordpress.com/videos/vodpod/

    I am trying to to have a “Video of the Day” on my Side bar under the calendar so that I can use some videos from youtube.com. I tried the vodpod but did not help me much. Can anyone guide me through this? Thank you!

    Just curious – what was wrong with vodpod?

    As far as I can tell, you should be able to place a Vodpod button on your sidebar (and this can show your youtube video if you collect it with vodpod). I’ve got the Vodpod widget on my sidebar and I’m very happy with it.

    Vodpod is the only way I know of to use a video in your sidebar. You need the vodpod WIDGET code, not the BUTTON code.

    Yeah, what I meant was get the Vodpot widget – it has a widget style called button that newsaura can use for the Video of the Day.

    H-E-L-P!

    Just a while ago I decided to start featuring videos on two of my blogs here at WordPress. At first everything was just fine. I mean embedding was easy as pie. Seriously, the folks at WP should be given Kudos in the highest for just how accurate and easy the process was.

    Just this morning I was going through some of my posts and noticed that I was unable to see, play, operate or otherwise any of the previous videos placed on:

    http://onemorecup.wordpress.com ~AND~ here is a link to the most recent video.

    http://americanage.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=543

    Any advices are greatfully appreciated. CHEERS!

    We cannot use the last link since that is from within your dashboard and we do not have access to your dashboard. Is the post published? If so, give us the link to the post on the blog.

    Hey there ‘thesacredpath’

    Here is the exact link to the published post. http://americanage.wordpress.com/2009/03/23/not-endorsingbut-an-awesome-lesson/

    At the time of embedding it ran for I think about two weeks; then stopped. Please have a look, thanking you in advance I remain,

    yours faithfully,
