can't get video to work -- am I daft? Answered

For the life of me I can't get the video to display in this instructable - 

https://www.instructables.com/id/Claw-Machine-Picker-Upper/

I both tried both the "embed video icon" and inserting directly into source.

I also tried the you tube option to use the old embed format, tried https...

I also came back latter and tried again.

Maybe I have tried too many things....  

Maybe there is an actual problem?

Maybe it is just me?

I dont know...

I'm getting something similar. The video shows up in the preview, but when I try to hit publish, it just goes back to the editor... am I missing something? Also, save draft doesn't save the embed code...

Yup, same problem. I copy the code from one of my older instructables and then change the url for the video, it is in two spots.

In YouTube, click the 'share' tab then click 'embed' and copy the iframe code. In our editor, use the 'embed media' button and paste in the iframe code. Did that work?

Works for me on winxp/chrome. Which one are you using? Unless they were doing some site update behind the scenes, try again. Youtube itself has been hiccuping lately if you just put up the video.
