Authors can not post YouTube video (2 posts)

    I have authors who want to post youtube video.
    As admin I simply take the youtube embed and post under html and the video shows on the blog.

    When logged in as an author I paste in the same code and on publish the code disappears and no video is displayed.

    Have I somehow set the authors up incorrectly or do authors not have the ability to post youtube code?

    Thank you.

    This seems to be unrelated to other similar issues under WPMU. I have a blog with hundreds of authors and it's hard to tell exactly what is causing the problem. The issue on WPMU installs seems to be related to only admins and editors being able to make embed codes or iframe codes stick, but authors get no love; embed code is stripped. But on a normal self-hosted install, this should not be a problem. I'm using a lot of plugins; very hard to isolate if it's plugin related. I will be testing some other plugins.
