I think you have to use the HTML editor to embed a video. That's what I think you are asking for.

Here I found a tutorial by Craig Daniels.

Without knowing the details of what you are trying I cant say why you are getting an error.

Sometimes it helps to mix it up a bit, some days an embed code works better and other days a url works better, if you would like some help give me a call and maybe we can work through the problem.

Laura Andersen - grab the embed code from YouTube video and use 'video' icon in the bar, paste the code. It should work - it's simple.

Call me if you have any other questions.

You can not be using the photo insert. It has to be the video upload or do it in the html portion of the editor and make sure you are using the embed code if you do that.

I'd say you would need to get the embedd link and post it in the blog when in source code view (the <> icon).

You need to find the embed code.  Usually, if you go to the video and then go to share, you will often then see the embed code (sometimes you may need to push the next button.

then copy and paste that into the html on your blog post.  To do that, select "<>" and then paste it. 

I hope that made sense.

I always use the embed code TY provides. Are you using the right feature in the editor (add a video) to copy and paste this code?

Sometimes it's best if we don't know the answer not to guess or speculate. I just went through this post and I felt like I was in Home depot asking a newbie for a left handed sky hook. They will take you though every aisle rather than say "I don't know".
