    ... on how to embed videos on Daily Kos.

    Here's How to Embed Videos, Brit

    Please see this comment by SoCaliana in a recent diary.  The DK IT team is trying to fix the bug.

       YouTube codes (13+ / 0-)

        Youtube code is outputting incorrectly.

        If you look at your code before hitting Preview:

        src="//www.youtube.com/embed/kC9TkJMeSTU?rel=0

        The [http:] is missing from in front of the source address.

        Type that in manually, and the code works.

    Remember to add the colon too after http following src=", i.e., http: before the embed string, as shown above.

      You're right! Thanks for being the sugar in my coffee this morning.

      I'm not sure what elfling and the other DK minions can do about YouTube auto-generating crap code. S'pose they can force DK to recognize crap as functioning HTML but then, DK itself spits out some really stupid code. The cry used to be conserve bandwidth! Simplify! and then DK4 started spitting out <strong> tags for bold when a simple <b> has always been standard. Grumble, grumble, grumble, get offama lawn, rotten kids!

      Aaargh! and even <em> instead of simple <i> for italics.

      Aw, the whole dang world has gone ter hell. Why, back in my day folks knew how to write code! 'Twas a point of pride to create short, simple programs that did more with less. Garg snargle grmpf nerble rargh barkle frgn gipple grz ...

        By John Prine

        While digesting Reader's Digest
        In the back of a dirty book store,
        A plastic flag, with gum on the back,
        Fell out on the floor.
        Well, I picked it up and I ran outside
        Slapped it on my window shield,
        And if I could see old Betsy Ross
        I'd tell her how good I feel.

        Chorus:
        But your flag decal won't get you
        Into Heaven any more.
        They're already overcrowded
        From your dirty little war.
        Now Jesus don't like killin'
        No matter what the reason's for,
        And your flag decal won't get you
        Into Heaven any more.

        Well, I went to the bank this morning
        And the cashier he said to me,
        "If you join the Christmas club
        We'll give you ten of them flags for free."
        Well, I didn't mess around a bit
        I took him up on what he said.
        And I stuck them stickers all over my car
        And one on my wife's forehead.

        Repeat Chorus:

        Well, I got my window shield so filled
        With flags I couldn't see.
        So, I ran the car upside a curb
        And right into a tree.
        By the time they got a doctor down
        I was already dead.
        And I'll never understand why the man
        Standing in the Pearly Gates said...

        "But your flag decal won't get you
        Into Heaven any more.
        We're already overcrowded
        From your dirty little war.
        Now Jesus don't like killin'
        No matter what the reason's for,
        And your flag decal won't get you
        Into Heaven any more."

        This better be good. Because it is not going away.
