GameSpotters are now able to embed GameSpot, YouTube, and Vimeo videos.

Hello GameSpotters,
It is indeed a happy day in the GameSpot offices. The sun is shining, the air is clean, God of War: Ascension and StarCraft: Heart of the Swarm have been released. And if all that wasn't enough to make for a good day we have some awesome news for you! Users now have the ability to embed videos from GameSpot, YouTube, and Vimeo in their blogs, and forum discussions.

Doing this is easy, to upload a video from GameSpot or YouTube copy the embed code (ctrl+c), the text you get should look something like this:

Then paste it (ctrl+v) into your blog, or forum post. See, it just that easy!

Remember, if you're uploading a video you created be sure to include #videodrome for your chance to be spotlighted in an upcoming community feature on GameSpot.

Be sure to keep it classy GameSpotters.

I have tried many ways to get embedded videos to work on Fuse, but I have had no luck. I have seen videos on Fuse though so there must be a way, but as of right now, the method in this article only seems to work on GameSpot forums.

For those of you who post on GameSpot forums, and are still having trouble, the only reason it doesn't work is because for some reason, the URL's are missing http: so if you add http: right before //www. it works, so basically you want it to look like src="http://www.youtube and so on.

Here's an example.

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/1xdpSw8aaEE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Instead of

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/1xdpSw8aaEE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

This is working fine for me, but only on GameSpot forums and blogs, not on Fuse.

If anyone knows how to embed videos on Fuse, please share.

Here, I'll try it again with a YouTube video I was just trying to embed in a thread.

Yep...just what I expected.

It's not that simple, or it just doesn't work, I've tried this many times on GameSpot forums, and it has never worked. However, there is someway to make it work, because I have seen many people do it. So what's the secret?

@macattack1459 Make sure you are using the "iframe" version. If you use the one with "object" in the .html, it won't work.
