    Youtube videos on blogs!

    Hello!! I've noticed that I can't put any Youtube videos on my blog entries (As in, pasting the embed code for the video onto the post), whenever I do, nothing shows up! I've been meaning to share music on my blog for quite some time now but it's honestly not letting me.. Does anyone have a solution to this? And is anyone else experiencing the same issue as well? (;ω;`)

    I tried and and it did not work for me thought sometimes I have to tinker around to make it work.
    I have old post with videos like this one and it appears fine, so I guess it has to do with embedding newer ones.

    It seems to be working for me, can I ask what code are you putting in your blog post?

    Edit:

    NVM I spoke too soon xP

    What, does it not work after all? Or you understand what we mean now?

    Ok, I found what could be the problem from this wordpress article:

    Due to new cookie regulations in EU it is now (in certain countries) required to ask people to allow cookies before we can display "normal" youtube videos to them.

    To avoid this youtube is offering a nocookie version of videos (www.youtube-nocookie.com).

    With cookies:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8mttU82V64
    With no cookies:
    http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/m8mttU82V64


    ~~~
    So, it takes a bit of editing instead of using the embedded code the youtube video provides. First off, go find the url of the video from the top of your browser. You'll need the very last bit of it.

    Example:
    If this is the url
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8rWZyI23hw

    You'll need the last part:
    h8rWZyI23hw

    Second, just jam it into this code:

    <embed src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/InsertVideoNumbersHere">

    The video will automatically adjust for the blog and be small. If you're ok with that, awesome! You're all done! If you want it to take up most of your post like Victorsaurus video's size, use this code (or adjust the height/width numbers to make it whatever size works for you):

    <embed src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/VideoNumbersHere" height="315" width="560">

    Hm, no, it's still not working. For me, anyway.

    hmmm...that's odd. I changed my blog's theme to the one you have, but it still works. Do you have any special coding on your blog?

    'Special'? Um... font and font color, widgets, images, links... tons of stuff. I can't see how any of that might prevent the video from appearing though. I put it in a post by itself; it was the only coding there, within the post itself. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong. :/ Hm.
