I've tried both YouTube and Yahoo videos. When I enter either the link or the embed code, everything appears to be working except I cannot see or preview the videos in the capsule. I just get that funky little box with the x in it. I can, however, view the videos on both YouTube and Yahoo, so it's not a problem with my PC. I am running IE7. Help!
I did use a video capsule. Sorry I didn't specify that. I tried inserting both the embed code and the URL in the video capsule where it is called for. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. It tells me it's recognized and what the video code is, but it won't show for me in the hub edit or preview mode. I can see the video on YouTube however.
Can you post the URL to the video? There are some Youtube vidoes that can not be embedded (you can only watch them on YouTube). That could be the problem, or it may be something else ...
I checked your hub "It's All About the Tomato" and found that the video "How to Make Fresh Salsa" played fine on my browser.
Is this the video that you are having problems with?
Yes -- that's the one. I guess as long as everyone else can see it them I'm fine. Do you think it could be an IE7 issue???
Can you see videos on other people's hubs (try here)? It may be that some type of security setting or software is blocking flash on HubPages but not on youtube.
Paul - My hubs look perfectly fine and I can see the videos using Firefox. When using IE7, nada. I can't see mine. Can't see others'.
BUT...I can view the videos just fine on YouTube, so I don't know why I can't see them on my hubs???
I've confirmed that there seems to be a problem with the video capsule and IE7.
I'll look into it to figure out what's up.
I'll report on this thread when I have an update.
Here's the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9EsBqGnXHs
I also tried a Yahoo video with the same results.
Sheesh! And it's my first hub to boot!
Thanks Larry. I have no problems watching videos on IE7. I DO have problems watching videos embedded into HubPages Hubs on IE7. The videos play just fine on YouTube. I tried the Shift+refresh, but still no videos.

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have...

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

I have noticed that videos do not work on my hub pages or other pages that I have viewed. How can I get them to work?

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is...

YouTube allows a start time parameter that, when used in a link, causes the linked video to start at the specified time. For example, in:http://youtu.be/Y0t-RqjMH-A?t=2m40sthe ?t=2m40s should cause the video to begin...
