Another HTML Experiment Embedding a YouTube Video By Cathy Glass Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Associates 00292515 Email Short URL Share: September 23, 2008 08:33 AM Success embedding a YouTube video, but unsure if the text will be added. Some of this is really trial and error. I know this is not likea good blog post, but I am glad we can practice out skills here at ActiveRain. This one, I went to the HTML section first and pasted the embed code from YouTube, posted the blog, and then came back to edit it to add text. I have not been able to figure this out for over a year.
