Trouble embedding youtube link in Author Spotlight

Has anyone else had trouble with this? I copy and paste the embed link from youtube, but Lulu is not accepting.


  • I have never tried that.

  • Well the tool says this >>  Youtube only. Use old embed code option. Do not use HTTPS or privacy-enhanced mode.


    Whatever that means.


    You can always add links in your Spotlight to Youtube

  • Yes, our Spotlight needs the old embed codes, which Youtube doesn't use any more.


    The work around is a bit tedious. What you'll need to do is copy the 11 digit video ID code from the youtube URL (example:, then paste the code into the html below:


    <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" 


    name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param 

    name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed 


    type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" 




    Finally, with the code in both locations, copy the entire html code and paste it into the Spotlight location.

  • It's a shame one cannot just paste in the link, which even in these postings results in the below >>



    (Just the same as it does in Facebook.)

  • There is a free code generator that works at:
