Can't get YouTube video embedding to show video in browser

Following the HTML Deepdive, I've tried to emulate the embedding of a YouTube video - but nothing is appearing in my browser. When I right-click the space where it should be, it says Movie not loaded. Here's my code:

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>My page</title>
    <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/ZUAg51kA42M?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/ZUAg51kA42M?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Thank you!

Thanks that worked! I wonder why Youtube gave me the embed code that was incorrect?

Thanks Steve! Fixed the problem for me too.

The video loads fine for me on Chrome. I could not see the video on Safari since I did not have the proper plugin. What browser were you using?
