Embed Videos from youtube.
followed the intructions on the video in my track about embed videos from youtube. I copy and pasted from youtube and it shows up blank in my page. It shows the space where it would be but its still blank? I used old embed code as instructed and it is not working. anybody else have this issue?

I'm going to take a guess here you are trying to embed a YouTube video in an html file on your computer that doesn't a web server.
If that's the case ...
Protocol-less URLs don't work without a web server, so in that case just add http: in front of the URL.
> The main caveat to keep in mind when using the protocol-less reference is that it will fail on pages loaded via file:/// (i.e. HTML pages you load directly from disk to your browser). So, do be sure to include the http: protocol in the URL if you happen to be developing without a web server at all, but don’t worry about omitting it otherwise.
