I assume you already tried posting code for the "Embeddable Player" down below. It worked on my blog the other day.

embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350">


of course you will need the < part and also the closing tag on the other embed

Okay, this is weird,
When I post embedded videos, I have to do it in the "Edit HTML" posting feature and then save the post from there. If I go to the "compose screen" before saving, it changes the code.

I don't know why this is, but it is. Then, if I need to edit the post, I have to go to a nother post, go into the "edit html" screen and save, so that when I go into the video post to edit it opens in the "edit html" screen also.
Weird, but by being aware of it, I'm able to post video.

Here's the code I used to hotlink from

add one of these, < and end end with > and in between, is this,

embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" align="middle" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" quality="best" bgcolor="#ffffff" scale="noScale" wmode="window" salign="TL"

Then another < and > with this in between

I don't know nothin' about youtube

it has to be as easy as just clicking on a button or i'm not going to do it. that's why i got a job at this widget factory.
