Trying to embed a youtube video into my blog but it only results in a blank, white square. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem or is it a site-related issue?

This is how your blog post should look after you embed a youtube video.If your video does not appear press on my blog and all your blog posts should appear.The video in the blog post you are talking about should also appear. Go back to your profile page and the video in the blog post you are talking about won't disappear.
Here is how you should embed your video when you are putting it into your blog

At the moment the embedded video in your blog is malformed. For starters the iframe is too wide (1024 is far too big to fit the site design), and secondly the iframe is missing the src attribute which actually loads the video. The src may have been stripped automatically by GS, but until you can get that src attribute to stick, the video won't work.
If you were using a browser that can't use iframes, you'd be seeing a link to your video instead, along with the frameborder and allowfullscreen text. Those elements need to be part of the iframe tags, not inside them, like super600's second screenshot shows.
