How do you imbed a video from YouTube into your post? I tried to do this last night with my Zoe videos and couldn't remember.

I can't do it either. All I can do is post the link. Very frustrating!

I know Laura (Laura's babies) has done it successfully several times.

You just copy the address at the top of the page and paste it into your post.. Don't recall if you use the [IMG] things or not.. LOL!

That posts the link; which is not embedding. That will do, that will work for us to see the vid.

Use the embed code ... look for the box right under the video that says "embed", click on that and it will bring up the code, copy and past that into your post....

I did that. It didn't work. I must have done something wrong.

Embedding codes don't work for me, either!

I wonder why? What settings on our computers must effect this? I have no clue.

Laura, glad to hear it doesn't work the first time for you, lol. I was REALLY feeling bad!
