    When I went to add to a hub of mine with a YouTube video, the Embed code was pasted but when I clicked to preview the video, Nothing Loaded. Why is it not loading?  This happened several times in two days. Help, please!

      You need to click on the 'use old code' box, and then use this code, which will work.

      It took me some time to work this out! LOL smile

      I had similar problem yesterday. It seem You Tube had changed their embed code.

      You still able to used embed code, but used old embed code instead rather than the new one, by marking the box where it said "used old embed code" which located bellow the embed code box.

    Yes, I had that problem as well.  The surest way of embedding a YouTube video is to go to the video in question, and copy the URL address.  The video capsule will accept either.

    I had to use the URL instead of the embed code. For some reason that isn't working anymore. I even had to redo some of my other blogs with videos. I think it is a change with HubPages.
