[resolved] Simple YouTube instructions not working (5 posts)

    I follow the simple instructions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/ but YouTube video embedding never works (just the URL shows up).

    I copy the link location from the address bar and paste it on a line by itself. I even tried the shortcode procedure but it makes no difference.

    Here's what the text (on a line by itself) looks like:

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSZYN8UV6yg&rel=0]

    After publishing this line shows instead of the embedded video.

    Can anybody explain how to make this work?

    P.S.

    I tried using the unlink button to remove linking from the URL but that doesn't help.

    What does "self hosted" mean?

    If self hosted means hosted on a web server, then I am self hosted.

    Okay, never mind. I figured it out. I needed to switch to HTML mode and insert full embed code.
