Youtube embding not working.

Hello, I am having issue with embedding YouTube videos with embedding code. I put the code in and save the file and nothing happens. This issue is in all the browsers.

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.
