Unsupported Video Host.......can't upload video from youtube Answered

I have been trying for a few days now to get one of my youtube videos on Instructables with no success. I have done it before, so I know how to do it. When I get to the page where it wants me to paste the embed code from youtube, it alerts me at the bottom of the page saying "Unsupported Video Host" (in white letters on an orange banner).

I have tried changing the embed code several ways, and using just the URL....nothing seems to make any difference. I tried in a new browser. I tried on different days.

My other video from youtube works just fine. Am I doing something wrong or is there some kind of bug?


The old code works. My previous instructables used the new YouTube iframe code. I'm curious why it's no longer supported.

Are you remembering to use the "old" code (there's a box to tick on YouTube after you've gone after the embed code).
