Awesome! You might consider (if you have the right application), do a frame capture and adding it as an image (forum topics without images are not Featurable). When I read the title, I thought you were talking about a steampunked wall-wart or something :-)

:-D

You don't have a paid membership, so you can't paste the embedding XML directly into the HTML source.

What version of Firefox are you using? Apparently a couple of the recent versions (3.6.13 is the latest) had a bug which broke the I'bles code-pasting stuff for videos.

Well, there's your problem... :-)

The IE series have a large number of known defects when it comes to respecting published standards. There's no guarantee that the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript used by Instructables will work on any version of IE. They do mostly work, but then you'll run into something weird that doesn't.

With only Rachel doing code development and support, I'bles doesn't have the resources to make different versions for broken non-compliant browsers.

Are you able to install FF on your system? It would be useful at least as a test to see whether the browser difference, or the video embed button, are the source of your difficulty.

pffttt....

ff works for it, but, IE still does have a large (probably still majority) stake in the browser market BTW
