Since 2.7-beta3 I cannot properly embed a video. I use the Insert / Edit embedded media option, and paste a YouTube URL, and it shows up fine in the preview but not in the actual post when using Firefox 3.0.4). It works in IE7. The code being used is this:
<object width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/hMnk7lh9M3o" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hMnk7lh9M3o" /></object>
Up to 2.7-beta2 the code that would be embedded is this and it works fine in both FF and IE:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="425" height="350" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/oFkMTN439g0" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/oFkMTN439g0"></embed></object>
But when I edit the code manually, and change it to the 'old' one, it automatically reverts it to the new one that doesn't work.
Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Is this a problem of this specific beta or a problem with my theme (I can't imagine it is as the old code works fine)? I would prefer not to use a plugin as technically WP can handle embedded media and I like to keep the amount of plugins I use at a low number.
By the way, my blog can be found here: http://earthtobella.com/. I use the most recent version of the Mandigo theme, if that makes any difference.
Thanks for your help.
