    I have problem using youtube shortcode.

    The shortcode i used are
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/user/MindlessEating#p/u/5/34T_cYbhmJg]

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaNH56Vpg-A&w=640&h=385]

    The above 2 shortocde are not working?

    May i know what the problem?

  2. Why are you using the shortcode?

    You don't need to.

    You can simply embed the youtube code directly in your post like this - http://youtu.be/34T_cYbhmJg and WordPress will do the rest.

    Are you using a plugin that should handle the shortcode? If so which plugin? What version of WordPress are you using? If you are using 3.2.1, you may not even need the shortcode/plugin. You can enter the video URL in the HTML editor and WordPress will create the necessary embed code. Check out this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds. It should help explain what I am referring to, also it looks like this works since WP 2.9.
