Thank you for your reply. The way this is supposed to work is the users are going to the add the video to a news article on the site in the format given by youtube which is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PuHGKnboNY. Try to put this url in the embed code and you will see that the video then does not show up. Thanks
