That code doesn't work also on my Delphi 2010
but after a little change in code it worked so try this and see if it works in your delphi xe7

procedure TForm1.LoadHtml(HTMLStr: String);
var
  aStream: TMemoryStream;
  doc: variant;
begin
  WebBrowser1.Navigate('about:blank'); // reset the webbrowser
  while WebBrowser1.ReadyState < READYSTATE_INTERACTIVE do // wait to load the empty page
    Application.ProcessMessages;
  if Assigned(WebBrowser1.Document) then
  begin
    doc := WebBrowser1.Document;
    doc.clear;
    doc.write(HTMLStr);
    doc.close;
  end;
end;

Yes I've tested that code and in a first try it didn't work so I've changed the html (the same of course) assignment as posted above and it worked

it is strange because I can run youtube site and run some video from it when I load the youtube site, but I can load the video through that code.

If I load the youtube site this way:   WebBrowser1.Navigate('www.youtube.com.br') it works :(

I am trying to understand what it could be

Try to navigate the same code from a local html page.
Give a try to this just to see if  it works this way (this example doesn't need activex)

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  ls: TSTrings;
begin
  WebBrowser1.Navigate('about:blank'); // reset the webbrowser
  while WebBrowser1.ReadyState < READYSTATE_INTERACTIVE do // wait to load the empty page
    Application.ProcessMessages;
  if Assigned(WebBrowser1.Document) then
  begin
    ls := tstringlist.create;
    try
      ls.text := '<html> '+ '<head> '+ '</style> '+
        '    <style type="text/css">.recentcomments a{display:inline !important;padding:0 !important;margin:0 !important;}</style>'+ '</head> '+
        '<body>  '+ '  <object width="640" height="390"> '+
        '  <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/L7NWdxFAHdY&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3"> '+
        '  </param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"> '+ '  </param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"> '+
        '  </param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/L7NWdxFAHdY&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"> '+ '  </embed></object> '+ '</body> '+ '</html> ';
      ls.savetofile('c:\loadwb.htm');
    finally
      ls.free;
    end;
    WebBrowser1.Navigate('file://c:\loadwb.htm');
  end;
end;

I noticed that the problem must be in IE, because I ran the code in IE and it didn't work but in Chrome, it worked fine.

As webbrowse works with IE, something wrong in my IE.

at the first time, the IE asks to allow the activex and even I allow it, the page doesn't open in my IE.

The version of my IE is 11

Just to finish the issue, could you send me the exe file so that I can test it here?

thanks again
