Video Host Not Supported Answered


Hi Everybody,

I tried to embed one video several times. Each time I got the message "Unsupported Video Host".
I used YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, and Vimeo.
For all I got the same message "Unsupported Video Host".

Thank you for your help,
Bob

Hi lemonie,

I tried Youtube at least three times. I always get the same message that the video host is not supported.

What do you suggest I do?

See below. I'bles isn't supporting the new markup that YouTube (and others) are exporting.

Hi Everybody,

Thanks for your help. I didn't see option "use old code" at YouTube. Everything is working.

Have a great day,

Bob

I know that YouTube, at least, has changed their "default" embed codes to use some new tag called "<iframe>". The Instructables server scripts don't recognize this as valid (which I posted as a bug report last week).

On YouTube, after you click the [embed] button, there's a checkbox you can select for "Use old embed codes." When I tried that, it worked successfully for I'bles.

You might check the other video hosting sites and see if they have made a similar change (and hopefully have a similar option).
