Im trying to insert a video from youtube into my blog. No its nothing dodgy ;) i give it the address and the preview comes up fine, and when i insert it the yellow box is put into my entry. But when i go to preview my post the video isnt there at all. What am i doing wrong? I thought it might be just a loading problem, but even after waiting a while nothing happens. It just looks like a normal post with no video :?:

I can take a peek and see what I can find. Maybe it's just a problem with the preview. Did you post it or did you delete it? Is it in draft?

i saved the draft, but the video doesnt appear to save in the draft either

Well shoot. I tested it out on regular wordpress and the video appeared. When I used the same code in the diet blogs, it wouldn't work. I think the multi-user version of Wordpress strips certain code as a security measure. I'll look into it further, though, because it would be fun to have some videos in there :)
