Embedding YouTube video

Has something changed when it comes to embedding YouTube videos to websites? For some reason the embed codes do not work, neither the short or older long one. Any suggestions…

I have had no problem of recent embedding youtube videos. :slight_smile:

This is the video I am having trouble with… I wound up just adding the link but I would have preferred “embedding”

This is the code I would typically use

<center><iframe width=“560” height=“315” src=“//www.youtube.com/embed/qYLwJRf8b34” frameborder=“0” allowfullscreen></iframe></center>

It works here: http://jsfiddle.net/DvyuF/ do you have a flash blocker installed perhaps?

Hah, I have no idea what that is…like I said I have linked to many videos but this one will not work. Can you explain what a flash blocker is?

Maybe copy this page’s view-source?



<object width="425" height="350">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/qYLwJRf8b34"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/qYLwJRf8b34" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed>

Just occurred to me that I just upgraded to IE 11. Could that have anything to do with this? I went to your link (thank you) but it just confused me. Maybe I need to go back to IE10 or live with this problem.

Well I just uninstalled IE 11 and I am still having the problem…I give up. Thanks for your help.

I just came to this page using IE11 and the embedded video showed OK

I tried your code and it didn’t work for me either.
I added http: to your code…

<center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qYLwJRf8b34" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center>

… and it worked.

Hope this helps…

Thank you, thank you, thank you scout. The html apparently was the missing link. I got it to work. Gratifying to know folks like you are out there looking to help. Appreciate it…

Not a problem, glad to help…
