Just wanted to know if anyone else is experiencing what I am experiencing right now. The video upload, embed on my site is not working. Is anyone having this problem too? I tried embedding two videos from youtube channel, they but came up blank.
Have you had any luck with the "use old code" check box below the embed code box? There has been a number of threads about this problem (come and gone) and if you've been following them, then you are already aware of this work-around....however if you haven't caught that piece of info then give it a try. The new code starts with <iframe.... and the old with <object.... that's the one you want. I have been able to post this "old code" everywhere including forum, comments in forum and replies to comments. Each level with no problems: the YouTube video just "shrinks in size" to fit each successively smaller box in the test thread. ....also, once you have enabled the "old code" box it will remain the default every time you return (if you're working through your YouTube account.)
I hope this is something that will work for you and others.
well it is not solved
I have videos on my paid for page that do not exist and I can not remove them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this ning thing is looking like a waste of my money if I can not edit
look at the video section please
I have the same problem, i still see videos with no thumbnail, other than the youtube logo, however, I'm not sure after you fixed the problem, that all the previous embedded videos will generate a thumbnail. I'm waiting to see what is gonna happen if someones embed a new video from youtube. I will report back, just thought i should tell you.
its pretty easy to see if you go to my page
Sorry to say, but the issue is not solved!
I can successfully embed youtube videos in textboxes and blogs using the old embed code. With the new code I have different results:
Sometime the video show !
Other times the exact same video embed code seems to "disappear" without a trace.?!
Mad World music video on youtube:
<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="475" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/4N3N1MlvVc4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Textbox; - after I embeded the code (HTML mode) and refreshed My Page:
(on the www.famitas.com social network, user: N. Hotmail)
I would be happy to invite you to join my network and you can try for yourself; - just give me an email address for the invitation! (It is in danish but since still in test, I could change the language into english for a defined period of time).
The failed code embed attempt, I did as a standard member in a text-box on the members MyPage.
In a second attempt, I logged in as the network creator and successfully embeded the exact same code in a text-box on the Home page.!!
Could it be that the handling of text-boxes is depending on user rights? the context (MyPage or Home page)? or perhaps the editing-history of the box including alternating use of Visual Mode, HTML Mode, Media Embed etc.?
