I am having trouble emdedding video in askbot, nothing seems to work. I have tried all mannger of tags, changing the embedded urls for youtube etc. On this askbot forum i see that the video shows in preview but does not display when the question is published.

This seems to be a point repeated quite often across articles i find online. Is there suggestion that you can offer to publish these? I have installed the markdown 2, pip, git. Nothing seems to be working.

Ok, what is not explained too well is what tags are needed to be used to show a youtube video. After installing the forked version of markdown2, you simple need to just enter the youtube video url. Nothing else. You have no control over sizes etc. You just paste the url only.

If someone has tested another way of doing it please let me know.

Instead of markdown, you can run Tinymce editor which can be setup in the admin
