I was just about to email a friend to show them how they could embed YouTube videos onto their classroom blog when I noticed YouTube videos on my own classroom blogs weren’t working properly. (I run a self hosted WordPress server for my class blogs and student websites.)
Normally, you just paste the YouTube website address directly into a post, and the video magically appears. (You have to make sure that it is not hyperlinked â€“ if it shows up as a blue link, then the video won’t show up unless your students click on the link.)
I thought it was me, but when I visit the official WordPress.com support page, the embedded YouTube videos don’t show up properly either.
Oh well. I’ll have to show her that YouTube trick later.
