Videos and SharePoint Blog RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having the same issue as mentioned in this post (http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/writergeneral/thread/eb0d8fb7-254d-481b-a4a3-c58e593b549c).

    When inserting a video from Soapbox or Youtube, the video only shows up as an image on the post that links to the respective video page on MSN or Youtube.

    I have tried the solution in that article, but no luck, any video from either Soapbox or Youtube, only show up as an image, or not at all if scripts are set to not supported.

    Anyone able to use WLW to publish embeded videos to a MOSS blog?

  • Sorry, but SharePoint strips video embeds for security reasons. The fact that it even shows up as an image with a link is the result of a ton of hard work on our part :)

  • Then I am sure you will agree that WLW showing a perfect preview when it knows your post is on SharePoint Blog is very misleading.
