    I am having problems embedding a video in a post. I've been told that i wordpress, I just need to paste the below link it in the HTM tab of your post and it will be embeded.

    <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/47229619" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe>

    It is not working. Where do I find the HTM tab in my version of wordpress? By the way, I use wordpress.com, instead of wordpress.org

    Great, thank you for providing this link. All other embeds have worked for me in the past from you tube and Vimeo. The specific issue with this one is that this video is restricted. The originator has given me permission/rights to use it and provided me with the link I provided above. However, it seems maybe he has given rights to the wrong "domain" (me). What should I provide him with?




    Many thanks for any further advise...
