    when i put a youtube video into a post it just shows up as a white space. there is no video. here is a link to a page that has a video from youtube embedded on it and this is all that shows up. i would like to know what the problem is. it is very frusterating.

    any help would be appreciated

    I looked at the code and i don't even see the youtube embed code in there. So when you go to edit, does the code disappear? And what code are you using exactly?

    i go to you tube and get this code (<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/p1Zc7NnSVr8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>) then i put it into the editor and post it. for some reason it does not show up when posted

    It's a shot in the dark but have you tried using the old embed code:

    <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/p1Zc7NnSVr8?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/p1Zc7NnSVr8?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Ha!! ;)

    If the problems persist after trying just the link, check this out

    Sometimes when plopping the link in through the visual editor, the link will get wrapped in a link, causing the embed to fail.

    Editing the post through the html editor to remove the link wrapper will fix it - I have this problem on my sites

    Have you tried it on a plain vanilla install?

    That is running the 2011 theme, and no plugins?

    That will narrow it down to a WP install issue, or a conflict.

    If it works with nothing active, activate things one at a time and test each time - it's an arduous process to be sure - but it's really the way to know where the conflict lies

    Same issue I am facing I can see the video when it goes to the full page, but i need to put this in post excerpt. it shows the link only
    such as
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdvEdMMtNMY
    in complete page it shows the video so the thing is Video embedding is working by just putting the youtube link, but not showing in post excerpt.

    I got my solution I was not using <iframe> but now I tried with the iframe and put the same embedding code in to excerpt it worked...
    for any one else who face the same issue might be this can solve us the embedding code provided by youtube for example this video worked for me

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VdvEdMMtNMY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
