    the same embed code work for any streaming content, or is YouTube to only one that works?

    •  You're conversing with an only barely literate (6+ / 0-)

      computer person. I've perfected YouTube, but only been sometimes successful with other sites. From what I can tell, they're all basically the same. Where I get into trouble is if the embed code needs tweaks. Play with it. All you have to lose is time.

      to the code it gives you, as HappyinNM explained. Click Share, then click Embed. The code will appear in a text box for you to copy and paste where you want it. You can modify the video size by using the drop down menu under the code. A width of 550 or less works best. When you paste the embed code into your diary or comment here, remember to manually add:




      Youtube should provide a complete embed code as is customary but for some reason, it does not.

      Video from other sources may also embed successfully but not always. The only way to be sure is to test it with a preview before you post.

      There is no existence without doubt.

        and then they broke it, for some reason. I can't fathom why they haven't fixed it months later, cause it seems like such a trivial problem.

          Maybe there's a legal reason

            Google now owns YouTube, and they're heavily invested in getting people to switch browsers to Chrome. I bet the embed code works perfectly, as is, in Chrome? It doesn't work in FireFox or Safari, that's for sure. Yeah, my tinfoil hat is whispering to me.... :P

            Either way, I've grown to hate YouTube. I loathe the fact that they forced me to sign up for a gmail account just to keep my YouTube content, and EVERY FREAKING TIME I visit YouTube now, it asks me to switch my YouTube account to my "real name" (instead of the username I've been using for 5+ years.) The popup blocks the screen and never goes away!
