None of the 3 options in the program work for inserting videos.

When I put the web address in, it says it's unknown and shows nothing in the preview window.

When I upload a video file from my computer to YouTube, it uploads it, but then it gets an error when I try to show it in the post.

When I try to use the video service option, it lets me log in to YouTube, but then it shows an error in trying to retrieve my list of video files and shows nothing.

I even tried copying the embedding code from the YouTube video itself and pasting it manually into the source code. When I preview it, it shows the black video box but shows the frowny face indicating an error. It says you can click the link to view it on YouTube, and that takes me there and works on YouTube, but it will NOT show the video embedded in my blog post.

This is very frustrating! It worked fine in Live Writer, but it has not worked for me since using Open Writer. Please bring back this feature!

Me pasa exactamente lo mismo. Es desesperante y frena el trabajo de edición en mi blog.
Open Live Writer se me hace inútil al no tener solución a mano ante semejante problema.
Por favor, ayuda.
Saludos.

If it helps, I actually did get it to work in a roundabout way. The inserting options do not work. But this time, I cut and pasted the embedding code into source code in the program, and although a video box appeared with an error in it, when I actually published it to Blogger, it did appear normally and did actually work in my blog post! I was so happy and so pleasantly surprised. I hope this helps someone.

Te agradezco tu comentario, pero esa solución no me sirve porque necesito descargar el vídeo en el post.
En muchas ocasiones los vídeos en Youtube se anulan, o se eliminan, y eso hace que desaparezcan del post. Pero si los descargas y los insertas en el post indicando la Fuente, es la forma de que nunca se pierda el trabajo realizado en dicho post.
Por eso necesito urgentemente una solución para poder insertar los vídeos descargados en el PC, y poderlos insertar en la publicación.

Saludos y gracias.
