  1. Thanks for the article Alex. I was giving it a try and everyting was working except when I tried to save the page. Now the page is locked in edit mode except I cannot edit anything. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

    1. Hi, hard to tell unless you can give full description of everything on you pages ;-).

      Try doing it through SharePoint Designer or try a different browser.


  2. Hi,

    I’m pulling my hair out trying to embed videos into my blog (no webpart available). You mentioned “…There are many ways to resolve this issue and one of these includes stopping SharePoint from removing the embedded code but this isn’t realistic…”

    Please, please can you tell/link me to how to do this? (I’ll take it as read that this is something you should never ever do etc)

  3. Hi Alex

    I just used these instructions to get a video on the SIMS Learning gateway. Worked first time. Superb and saved me a lot of time – now this is the way to go!



  4. This is a great approach to help solve an aggravating issue that’s just about had me tied in knots… Thank you!!

  5. Alex,

    Great post! but is there a way to publish the embed code into a blog post or news article page? I’ve been trying to embed flickr code and it was driving me nuts.

    All I can think to do is link to the flickr page to view the slideshow but I don’t really want to point people away from our site.

    Is there any way to embed the code? or how do you turn off the embedding within sharepoint? or is that not advisable?

    Any help you can provide, I’m sure my remaining hair would be very grateful!


  6. Hello,
    Our school uses SharePoint 2007 for our school websites. The issue is that they are all https sites, when I followed your steps I can see the video coming up in my page. My students however cannot. Is there a way around this?
