I had some trouble with a recent post, embedding a YouTube video into my blog here at Edublogs. For a real simple method of inserting a video, I spent 2 hours pulling my hair out and screaming at the computer. Both Sue Waters and Mike Temple [experienced Edublogs users] could not work it out either.
In desperation, I asked James from Edublogs if he could fix the problem.
Such a simple thing!
Mike Temple has a great site with step-by-step instructions for inserting video’s which really does work.
But – traps for young players!
The URL I was trying to insert was THIS http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=zMwuOUYxN6o
Apparently the problem is the uk at the front of the URL.
If you are trying to insert a YouTube url into Edublogs, remove the uk from the front of the url to get this http://youtube.com/watch?v=zMwuOUYxN6o and then cut and paste into the Embed media icon and bingo!
