Topic tags/keywords: video embed code youtube troubleshoot question

I have been successfully embedding videos into my blogs for a while now but all of a sudden they don’t show up. I have been simply copying and pasting the embed code from YouTube into my blog body paragraph. I even compared the code I’m using now with the code in my most recent blog entry and they are identical (except for their identifiers of course).

Is anyone else having this problem recently? How do I fix it?

I seem to remember a posting earlier about having problems with spammers resulting in a change to how videos are embedded.

I also have had this problem today! Is anyone out there reading this from the site? I have done what I always done and t is not working. SO after about 45 minutes of trying to figure it out I look at the last 5 posts before mine and none have the video embedded. SIGH!

I created a link to the video.
Is there a way to ask questions about the site to those running it?

Love the site!
