    code verification


    Might sound like a stupid question but I'm not to skilled at html. I want to put this code on a page but when I put it there the page says I'm missing a plug in to run it and when I try to download the plug in it doesn't work. So is the problem with the code I wrote or something else. Here's the code:
    <a href="<snip>"><embed
    src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<snip>/autostart="true"
    loop="true"></a>

    There was a stray [space] in the code you showed here. I dunno if it was there originally.

    But more importantly: youtube pages are pages, not 'media files'. You may want to embed using the code that YouTube itself provides.
    I.e.: use an <iframe> element instead of an <embed> tag.

    • tstolber agrees : That would do it! Embed the file, not just link to a URL

    Thanks that seems to have worked except for the fact that the attributes like autostart loop and hidden don't seem to work.
    This:
    <a href="<webaddress>"<iframe
    width="210" height="158" src="youtubecode"
    autostart="true" loop="true" hidden="true" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></a>
    And this:
    <a href="<webaddress>"><iframe
    width="210" height="158" src="youtubecode"
    frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></a>
    give the same result
