Videos not embedding!

  • I have a wordpress.com blog and a wordpress.org site.

    When I insert a youtube video URL using Add Media on my wordpress.com blog, the video embeds properly. The code inserted into the html is:


    However, when I try to do the same thing on my other site, the video does not embed. It only shows up as a link. The code inserted in html is (I changed the <> brackets into () ones so the whole code will show instead of a link):

    (a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxx”)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxx(/a)

    Is this normal? If so, how can I embed a video on a wordpress.org site?

  • Try using an iframe.
    Under any youtube video there will be a ‘share’ button which when selected will show an ’embed’ option. There you can get the code to embed the youtube video on your site.
