[resolved] Auto-embeded Youtube video shows only the link (5 posts)

    I'm trying oEmbeds for the first time and when I insert video link, like this:


    I only get the link published and not the video.
    I checked the Auto-Embed option Media, but still doesn't work.

    Any suggestion?

    OEmbed is still a relatively new protocol and not all Youtube videos work with it. As irony would have it, "Embed Video into WordPress" appears to be one of those videos.

    Try this plugin instead:


    it's just as easy to use as OEmbed and offers some additional features.

    Thanks James!

    You're right... that's an irony!

    I'll check that plugin,
    thanks again =)

    try tinyMCE advanced plugin and check "stop removing <p> and
    tags" checkbox: for the autoembed to work the url needs to be UNLINKED and ON A LINE OF ITS OWN
