whatever I try - making sure the Auto Embed is ticked, using [embed], plugins etc. - I just can't seem to get youtube videos to play in a post.
Anyone had this problem before?
How did you overcome it?
Never had problem with this, but you can try Smart YouTube plugin http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/wordpress-plugins/smart-youtube embedding a video with it is as simple as posting an URL to it on the blog.
Tried installing that plugin but still no joy ... all that shows in the post is:
no sign of a video playing ...
