I am just testing to verify this method works then we can use it until they come up with a better option for us.

This is what I am finding it takes to display a video here. (Is this how it worked in the past as well?)

(1) Go to this video (or any really) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNoLJy68ZcE
(2) Below the video you will see a tab for sharing. Select that tab.
(3) Once you are on the share tab, then select the embed tab.
(4) The iFrame option they offer does not work so you need to click on use old embed code.
(5) Once you have the old embed code you then have to copy and paste it to the message in order to have it display in the community.

You didn’t really think we would ignore you, did you? It’s like telling a child not to do something.

I do hope this works though.

The instructions above worked for me, so you are welcome to try it.

Was there a different method before?

Before we could use the iFrame version of embedding, but they shut that down for a long time, because they said they couldn’t figure out how to stop spammers from abusing iFrames. Would be nice to be able to use iFrames, but I understand the technical challenges that involves.

Good to hear that the old embed is working again, though. I had tried using that before
