Support » How-To and Troubleshooting » [Resolved] Simple YouTube instructions not working
5 years, 7 months ago
I follow the simple instructions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/ but YouTube video embedding never works (just the URL shows up).
I copy the link location from the address bar and paste it on a line by itself. I even tried the shortcode procedure but it makes no difference.
Here’s what the text (on a line by itself) looks like:
After publishing this line shows instead of the embedded video.
Can anybody explain how to make this work?
I tried using the unlink button to remove linking from the URL but that doesn’t help.
Ask at their forum
We only support self hosted sites
What does “self hosted” mean?
If self hosted means hosted on a web server, then I am self hosted.
Okay, never mind. I figured it out. I needed to switch to HTML mode and insert full embed code.
