    I have followed the tutorial for inserting videos into a wordpress page ( couldn’t be simpler?) but on each occasion – after publishing – I simply get the text of the link and no embedded video. I am using wordpress.com but understand that this facilitates embedding of video. I am obviously doing something wrong. Do I have to upload the You Tube videos to my own You Tube channel or account first?

    Here is the page:

    Any advice much appreciated!

    Hi Gerard,

    I’ve just run a test and it works fine :)

    See http://writingincloseup.wordpress.com/film-genres/

    You just need to click the share button under your chosen youtube video, copy the code and place in a page.

    Hi Gerard,

    Because you are using WordPress.com not wordpress.org it looks like there is a slightly different way to embed videos http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/.

    I just tested and it works – but lets see if it stays there :)
