    I wrote a hub about it a long time ago.  You should look at it.

    Wait, do you want to put a youtube video into your blog?  Just take the embed code on the youtube video website and paste it into your blog.  You should be able to figure it out from there.  IT's simple enough.

    On the YouTube Video there should be an option on the video that says share, when you hit share another option button will say embed.  Choose embed then you simply highlight the http address, right click with your mouse and choose copy.  Go back to your hub and paste the link into the video box using your mouse again with the right cllick.  That's it!

    Are you trying to say, Embed a YouTube video because you can't download it ON your blog. You can make a post and embed the video by copying and pasting the HTML code (or embed code) that YouTube provides in the share link just below the video that you want to embed. Of course, you will have to open the video to see the embed code.
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you all for your answers to my question!  I was able to finally do it.  I thought I was doing it right but it kept saying I didnt hve the URL right even though I knew I did.  After I tried again I go it correct.  I think maybe I missed a step and after following your wonderful directions I was able to accomplish the simple task!

    You don't have to download the video. Just click share and copy the embedd option and copy the code. now copy the code in your post. make sure that to opt for html view (in your post) before copying the code.

    Use the Share --> Embed feature to use videos on your blog. Use a Wordpress plugin called Iframe to use the Iframe code.
