    I've found all kinds of plugins for showing YouTube videos in a wordpress post, but am unsure which one is the easiest to use and the safest to install. Any reccomendations?

    I simply want to be able to show YouTube videos within my posts... Thanks in advance!

    Hi
    Go to /wp-admin/profile.php (profile manager) and untick the use rich editor as default.
    it will give you the old editor and with it you can use the youtube / google video code.
    after that you can reactevate the rich editor - but - DO NOT redit the post with it.

    In fact you do not need to install any plugin. You just need to put this code in your post:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXX" height="350" width="425"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXX"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></object>

    All you need to do is change the XXXX for the number of the video you want to show.

    For instance if you change XXXX into eZeYVIWz99I ito would became:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/eZeYVIWz99I" height="350" width="425"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/eZeYVIWz99I"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></object>

    In fact, that's invalid markup.

    this is much better, and its valid:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" style="width:425px; height:350px;" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/72zn2KODSsY"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/72zn2KODSsY" /></object>

    You need to close your tags.
