    It works on this vanilla forum, but it does not work on my own vanilla install, I am using the latest version 2.0.18.4. Is there a plugin I need to use or something?

    As it turns out, it was a problem with the CLEditor. If i disable it the embed youtube works

  • just my findings - I don't use cleditor except for this test.

    I think it converts when it writes.

    if you disable the the cleditor and write an embed

    <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/mA8z0pRjp-U&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="385">
    

    it shows up fine.

    then when you enable cleditor the embed shows up fine.

    but if you enable cleditor and post same line it does some rewrites the tag.

    you can see the difference when you choose edit.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    You can get around the problem in cleditor.

    post the embed.

    <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/mA8z0pRjp-U"&amp;amp;nbsp; width="640" height="385"&amp;>
    
    then choose edit - then show source and modify then change
    this
    &lt;embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/mA8z0pRjp-U"&amp;amp;amp;nbsp; width="640" height="385"&amp;amp;&gt;
    
    with these.
    
    &lt;embed
    
    to
    <embed
    
    and 
    amp &gt;
    to 
    >
