I do know how to embed videos on the this site, and have done so in the past without much trouble. The problem is now I can't see the embedded videos. I now get a nice little white box with a little icon in the top left corner. These aren't just the ones that I've posted, I cannot see any embedded video that anyone on this site. It's getting frustrating because I can't figure out the problem. Does anybody have any advice that would help me out?

What browser are you using?

Can you view videos directly on YouTube?

Are you blocked from seeing the videos via a firewall or other restrictions in your Settings?

Internet Explorer 8, yes, and not that I'm aware of.

I'm grateful for any help that you guys can give me.

The forum scripts don't parse the url correctly. They in fact they don't parse at all, they prepend "http://www.youtube.com/v/" to whatever you put in between the youtube tags. In order to embed a video, just place the video code (the value after "v=" and before the "&") between the tags.

Uhh, did you bother to read the post you quoted before typing out a response? ;)
