I am not sure if this is the correct forum, please feel free to move it if necessary.

I have a blog about translation and other related matters, and have included images without any problem. I would also like to add some YouTube videos but whenever I try it (there is a video icon on the Blogger system - a bit like a section of film) they ask for a lot of code numbers, and I haven't been able to figure out which code is required. I tried the YouTube reference code but I got an error message.

My account is with Blogger. Perhaps someone who also uses this system could tell me if videos can be included, and how?

embed Youtube video Aug 1, 2010

Go to your video on Youtube and click [Embed] which will bring up a scroll window that has the necessary codes you need. Copy the lot and go to your blog page and paste to where you want the video to show.

Step 1 - Get code

Step 2 - Copy code to your blog page

I tried it but for some reason only the first line of the code was transferred. Also, it does not use the film-like icon at the top. Do I need to transfer the code one line at a time?
