    Just tried this for the first time, and it doesn't seem to be working. I get the following message:

    "The specified URL can not be embedded as media."

    Any thoughts?

    I do plan to upgrade soon to 1.2. Will that take care of it?

    What is the URL?

    Code:
    <iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/video/embed?video_id=10201763060380919" width="1280" height="720" frameborder="0"></iframe>

    Thanks!

    Where would I find the match URL's field?

    Thanks, again! Did that, and now all I get is a blank spot where the video should appear.

    It works on my local - I tested it using that video.

    Should I have changed something in the "Embed HTML" section, too?

    I have this:

    Code:
    <object width="500" height="300" data="http://www.facebook.com/v/{$id}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
        <param name="movie" value="http://www.facebook.com/v/{$id}" />
        <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
        <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
        <embed src="http://www.facebook.com/v/{$id}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="opaque" width="500" height="300" />
    </object>

    Hey, thanks! It was the embed code. I changed it and now it's working.
