embedding video Answered


I am trying to get some video embedded in my instructable, yet nothing shows up.
I have followed the same process of uploading and using the embed code per several of my other instructables, yet now it seems like it's just stopped working.

my process:
Upload video to youtube, wait for youtube to do its thing, copy embed code and paste into 'embed video' in the rich editor. While editing it shows the placeholder for the video, and the source code shows the right html for the video. When I preview the placeholder is gone and the text flash animation is displayed where video should be.
Youtube setting is 'unlisted', which enables embedding. My other videos have the same settings and have worked in previous instructables.

Windows 7
FF 3.6.10

help!

For paid ("pro") memberships, you can also paste the embedding code directly into your post, using the Source button on the Rich Editor. That's what I did with my most recent forum topic, and it worked.

Yup, pasting the embed code directly in html worked.
Thanks for the heads up on that other post

... I just tried a video that works in one of my other projects and copied the same embed code over to the new project with no luck.
