I'm trying to embed a video like everyone else above , but it doesnt work. I'm sure i'm missing something.
I click Custom Field. I enter 'embed' as the key , and as the Value i enter the youtube video code , eg:
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/o29_7lQ3QB4&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/o29_7lQ3QB4&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
Then i click 'Add Custom Field'
I leave the actual post area blank. Then i view the page and there is no video embedded at all.
"I opend the source file and in order to let it work proppely" <---- Do i need to edit a source file in order for this to work?
Sorry for asking but i've never really used custom fields before.
EDIT- Nevermind , i resolved it. seems it was a bug in my version of WP. Taken from the revolution tv site:
"Please note that WordPress 2.6.2 has a small custom field bug which add's extra "slashes" to embed code when submitted to a custom field. Until this bug has been fixed, you will need to add the custom field then update the value once again by pasting the embed code and clicking "update"
