Embedded Elements

Though I embed the YouTube video as instructed, it flashes briefly in the browser, then disappears. Why?

In the embed tag, add "http:" in front of the youtube link :)

You're using the old embed code. Is there a reason you're not using the newer iframe embed?

I'm following the procedure shown on the video. The newer iframe embed hasn't been introduced yet. Maybe I need to move on to another video.
