Youtube??? Answered

okey-dokey.......I've done everything right......put a video up on Youtube (god, that took a long time to upload).......now, when I try to publish here....I get "unsupported video host".   I mean, really? That's a remarkable bug when you think about it.  I just cut and pasted the embed code.....what's the problem???

The "Old Code" does not solve the issue. Instructables has accepted the new youtube code for some time now. This bug was introduced sometime in the last 7 days. I was able to embed a youtube video 7 days ago.

Hmmmmmmm..........frustrating...................

In Youtube where you copy the embed codes, you have to check off "use old embed codes" on their menu. Paste that as your video link. Youtube had some new changes that are incompatible with the site.
