if they are on utube get the embed code and paste that into the html window (not rich text) of your post.

No, they're their own animal. I do use html.

Hmmm. Maybe they want folks to go to their site ( for hits and ad revenue). Try a link to the vid instead. Usually if I can get the embed HTML code, I can just paste it in. That's the easiest method for me. Also, this is strange, that site may only allow it for certain browsers. Example I am on older browsers like IE8 or IE 7, sometimes sites do not work and I use a copy of mozilla firefox. I also notiece some features like embed a vid will not work on a smart phone - that exposure wants you to use facebook or twitter for a retweet. That's just my observations. Maybe that's the way things are going, FB and retweets and tumbler. =(

There is a "copy embed" button but it no longer works. I get "invalid URL."

I just upgraded to IE 9, but it has made no difference. I can try Firefox and see if it works.

OK, well this is interesting. I went back to a LJ entry that has a correctly embedded Colbert video, hit "edit entry" and copied the raw embed code, pasted it into a new entry, AND IT DOESN'T WORK! WTF?!
