I'm also having troubles with embedding Youtube or Vimeo videos whilst running XP HE SP3, Firefox 3.6.13

Here is my workaround for pro account holders:

1. Be sure to use the "old embed codes" from youtube and vimeo.
These are usually found as an option after clicking the "get embed code" button on these sites.

2. From your pro account edit the source and add your embed code like this:
<div class="media_embed">
PASTE *OLD* EMBED CODE HERE BETWEEN div TAGS
</div>

Did you try again?

What browser are you using? What version? What operating system?

There is a known problem with the "embed video" popup window using Firefox 3.6.10, which paid ("pro") users can work around by switching the editor to Source and pasting the XML directly.

It seems to be working now! I use OS X, XP, Ubuntu, FF, Chrome...
Not sure if the issue was on youtube side...

Great news. I'm on MacOSX, and I've been getting YouTube's internal "An error occurred. Try again later." message on any video embedded on any Website (not just I'bles), for at least the past month. My only solution is to then click on the video panel, which opens a separate YouTube tab, which works perfectly well. Sigh...
