Why is this not working for me? It used to. But the last few times I have tried it doesn't work.

By "doesn't work", what symptoms are you experiencing specifically?

I've been having the same problem. It used to work fine. Now I just get an empty youtube box.. no video.

Yeah I think I might have experienced this too. Typically what I put between the YOUTUBE tags is the "embed" information that you find on the video. When that doesn't work I just paste the whole URL.

Right, so now people would have to click the link that takes them to youtube, rather than watching it right there in the post.

Not if you put it in the Youtube tags I think.

TESTING WITH VIDEO IDENTIFIER

eRBOgtp0Hac&feature=related

EDIT: GOT IT!! You use just the identifier of the video in the Youtube tags. So if your URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRBOgtp0Hac&feature=related you'd only put "eRBOgtp0Hac&feature=related" in your YOUTUBE tags.
