    I used to have no problem embedding videos into my blog. I would select “link” and then put the YouTube URL in its own line, and the video thumbnail would pop up. The reader could watch the video right from my blog. Now I do the same procedure, and the just the text link shows up, no video. And I noticed all my other video links that used to work properly are now just text links. Hopefully someone can help. Here is a link to my site.

    @cousinwoods: Use the YT shortcode.
