Embed Google Video not working (5 posts)

    I'm running WordPress 2.1 and for the life of me I cannot embed a Google Video.

    This is the video I'm trying to embed:
    [code]<embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-4101280286098310645&hl=en-CA" flashvars=""> </embed>[/code]

    With this syntax:
    [code][googlevideo=http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-4101280286098310645][/code]

    I've tried KML Flash Embed, Videos with WP, Viper's Video Quicktags, and of course the default as I understand this is built into wordpress now.

    What gives?

    A reply to a previous topic recommends WP-ExtremeVideo. I have no experience with it but it may help you.

    you have to turn off the rich text editor, then you can embed videos. go to your user profile, at the bottom left is a checkbox to use the 'visual rich text editor' uncheck it and then it works.
