Won't save embedded video Answered

When I save my article, the embedded videos disappear.  They aren't saving for some reason.

Is there a glitch with the site today?

I'm using Safari on iMac.  I've tried closing and re-opeing my browser.  Tried re-starting the computer.  I've even tried starting a new instructable, but it's the same problem.

Never had this problem before, so thinking it's a bug?

Is anyone having the same issue today?

I see these posts are a year old. I tried to embed a YouTube today and it doesn't show up. Is it supposed to?

The video uploads with the revised code, but won't let me publish? Even the twitter link works, but the Instructable remains in Draft mode

Looks like your instructable doesn't have a main image, try adding a main image and publishing. thanks!

Hi, I was playing around a bit and noticed, that this code:

<div class="media_embed">
<iframe frameborder="0" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/C70R7oo4jMc" width="480"></iframe></div>

worked for me, just replace "C70R7oo4jMc" with the link to your video

Works, then it doesn't. Right now it's working on a draft. I think I got it.

BrittLiv is right. Youtube changed things up recently and the only reason it is not working is because, in the embed link, there is no " http: " before the " //www "

If you add in the " http: " to the link in your embed code you should be set!

YouTube did something to their embed code. Until HQ get it fixed, you need to edit in the http: that YouTube have dropped.
