Embeding videos ??? What am I doing wrong here. Answered


Ok I'm trying to put this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJfsst5xnOE

on the last step of this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Wind-Turbine-1/?ALLSTEPS

So I got this code

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/QJfsst5xnOE?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/QJfsst5xnOE?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

And put it in the window that opens when you click on the little film strip button .

Then when I go back to the text ,  there is a nice little box with the word "FLASH" blinking in the middle ,  This leads me to believe I'm doing it right.  Then when I save and publish there is just a big blank where the box was before I saved.

What am I doing incorrectly ?

Insufficient data. Always tell us your browser, browser version, and operating system. Especially with the flash embedding, there are way too many variables involved, and inconsistencies between browsers.

What you did was correct. There is a known bug in Firefox 3.6.10 for which this kind of embedding is broken. It has nothing to do with I'bles.

For pro users, you can use the Source button in the editor and paste the XML code above directly into your text. For some reason, that works while the indirect approach does not.

Maybe because of my screen resolution, it looks like I always grab the bigger 480x385 size and it works.
