Not sure why but I just tried to add a youtube video to a post and it only show a link and does not embed the video. So I installed a plugin to do that and it worked.
Not sure why…any idea why?
I am adding the video by clicking the media little icon and choosing from url
and then the only thing it shows for youtube is the watch=? linking to youtube
you can simply paste the link in the post, WordPress will automatically embed it.
Sorry but it does not work. I tried that before submitting :) and it only lists the URL
Hence why I have to use Smartyoutube plugin to embed videos…weird
Basically you can use the embed shortcode: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds to embed youtube, vimeo, etc. videos. Try to embed your video with the shortcode like:
Please make sure that your server supports socket connections – otherwise the oembed protocol will not work.
nope…doesn t work, only using a plugin works.
I know its weird and I don t remember modifying any files related to this. I may do an install on another test machine and try to hunt down the culprit.
