Quantum Statement

The New Internet, the New World

Youtube, meet WordPress. WordPress, Youtube.

It took me like three hours, but I finally figured out how to embed videos from YouTube. Apparently, WordPress is funny about letting people put all kinds of ‘code’ into their html editor. this article explains how to make youtube videos play in a wordpress blog.

  9. Like others, I had problems with this.

    Here’s the solution:

    Go to

    Dashboard -> Manage -> Upload -> Video

    and you’ll find the correct syntax for in-place Youtube video presentation on wordpress.com.
