    I tried copy and paste the embed language from YouTube in my post, but every time I update or save the post, all the embed language disappears. Can anyone tell me how to fix that?

    I am having the same problem. If I drop the code in and save it is there. If for some reason I edit in 'visual' mode, the video disappears. I have several sites and it is the same for all. This only started with 2.9.

    Same problem here: embed video from YouTube in HTML mode and after saving or updating the post, all embed code has disappeared.

    It would be helpful if anyone could reply to this thread as hosting video is a no-go for most people and for those (like myself) who can, it's a no-go because the Streaming Video plugin that copes with that apparently doesn't know how to handle videoclips outside of WordPress Mu's Media bin --which is crap because it doesn't work.

    I wonder why there are so many posts about this topic and yet no moderators respond to any of them? This didn't happen before 2.9 that I can recall.

    If this helps, I Googled and found the following articles. I will be trying this next:

    I tried these below and they didn't work for me, but they might work for you:
