    Hello,

    Very new here.  Trying to embed a youtube video on my page, followed directions, blah,blah, blah and finally got the html code, copied and pasted, and it said "the specified URL was not recognized" in the video capsule.  Why? Why? Why?  3 hours later, Why? Why? Why?

    Sorry, a bit frustrated.

    Did you try using the URL of the video?

      Thank you SunSeven. No, I just tried that a few hundred times, and still not working.  I set up an account with YouTube, followed the instructions for "sharing playlists with others", I followed the instructions for "embedding", I copied and pasted the html code below the "Embed:" heading, and then I pasted it to the hubpage video edit box where  it asks for the url or whatever. 

      Ugh. This has been an entire day I have wasted on this! 
      Anyother suggestions?
      Thanks.

        You don't use the embedding code, just the URL of the page is enough.

        Just a hint of doubt. Didn't you hit the preview button after pasting the URL or the code?

    Hello all you helpful people!!!

    I finally got it to work!  Next question IS....... How do I move the video to the left of my hub article, instead of way down at the bottom.  I know about the directional arrows, but they only seem to move the video around at the very bottom at the end of my article? The same question applies to amazon and ebay capsules, am I allowed to move them up along side the hub article and if so, how , Please. And---- is there a limit to how many YouTube video's I can display on my topic(hubpage).

    Thank you all so much!
