[Resolved] YouTube auto-embed not working. “Insert media” produces static link

  • Ok, just installed wordpress 2.9.2.
    I have auto-embed enabled in the settings, but when posting a new post/page with a link youtube link, it just stays that way like plaintext.

    If I got to “add media”, the “From URL” tab looks nothing like this:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/
    Instead it has URL and Title fields. If I insert a youtube video this way, the result is a static link named “?v=youtubecode”.

    Typing in the following:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2Ncxw1xfck]
    Also produces no result, gets posted like plaintext, even if I use the HTML editor instead of the visual one.
