Trouble adding You Tube video (4 posts)

    I am having a problem adding the URL from a You Tube video into my WordPress webpage. I've copied the URL into the page:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgUSOsRWZNM

    and when that didn't work, I right-clicked on the video and selected "Copy Embed Code" and pasted this into the page:

    <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/GgUSOsRWZNM?feature=player_detailpage" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Neither brings in a visual window of the video (but the link works). How do I get the video box to appear?

    Here is the site I'm working on:
    http://www.dc3band.com/
    and I'm trying to add the video to the "Videos" page. Only the pasted copy is showing, but not the video window.

    Were you working in the Text Editor in WordPress when you inserted either/both of these?

    Thanks! I tried pasting it straight into the box had skipped the Text Editor. That works!
