Is it possible to use the video links in Wordpress? I can't seem to embed the video into the blog post.

    Are you using Wordpress.com or a self-hosted blog?

    I am sorry if this sounds disappointing, but it is the current policy of Wordpress.com to suppress any JavaScript code on their pages except from a very limited number of sources, universalsubtitles.org not being one of those. Please see http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ and http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds for details.

    We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Unfortunately US also doesn't work on self-hosted WP, even though we are allowed to insert JS inside posts.

    Also, the use of < ![CDATA[ can have unpredictable effects. Right now I am unable to import a WXR of my site into Disqus because of the US embed. On the bright side when I check the post (someone else wrote it) the video is already broken, so removing it wont' have a negative effect.

    Please fix use for WP! US is a wonderful tool but it won't take off until it supports the most popular CMS in the world (which just happens to also be free software and run by smart people)!

    I second the above requests. The player does not work in wikispaces.com wikis either, not in my webmultimediale.org/almansi blog, which was set up for me by someone else, and I guess is a movable type one.
