    I embeded some Youtube video code into my blog but the videos break my page like this.

    Does anyone know why? I'm not using any video plugins.

    use viper video quicktags plugin instead. it won't break your pages.

    Well, the funny thing is that Viper doesn't seem to work either. See here

    It's just showing the url of the video but no video?

    Did you put it into the [youtube] url here [/youtube] tags?

    You'll need to go into the CODE tab in the editor to add those.

    Yep-That's exactly how I did it. The plugin automatically puts that into the editor but for some reason, it's not appearing. It's just spitting out the url but not the video. There is a big gap that exists in the blog entry so that is where the video is supposed to appear.

    maybe contact the author of VVQ about it as it may be a glitch.

    First try a standard theme to see if it works in there. If so, it may be theme related.

    nope- definitely not theme related as I just switched back to the Default theme and it's still broken. I'll contact the author and if possible, report anything back.

    any other video plugins that might come close to this one?

    Thanks for your help!

  8. Your theme appears to be missing <?php wp_head(); ?> in it's <head>, i.e. the Javascript file isn't being called.

    As for your original post, that seems to be a CSS issue. If I disable CSS in my browser, it renders just fine.
