  1. I've posted this on the forum but I'm not sure if it's a WP issue or a Thematic issue, so I'll replicate here and see if someone has an answer:

    I can get the video embed to work, as in, video appears (yay!) but it's producing errors for me.

    Link to site (most likely NSFW-ish)

    I'm fussy about errors and wanted to yank this when the errors showed up but I thought I might not be the only one experiencing them.

    This is the link to the error messages

    my doc type is xhtml transitional and I'm running Thematic

    If anyone has any tips for how I can resolve this, please let me know!

  2. Hi,

    blame it on :)

    oEmbed takes the code delivered by the server and integrates it into your blog. And this code causes the error messages.

  3. ah, thank you :)
    *shakes fist at youtube*
    I'll go back to my old method of posting a linked pic of the youtube video. It might not be as pretty as the video playing instantly but I've gotten to like coming up all green in validation :D

  4. You could use Viper's Video Quicktags .. it will embed the videos and others using valid code.

  6. wow, that's something I should have done from the beginning! The plugin works seamlessly with 2.9. Thanks!
