Ao3 video embedding help please?

So, I've been trying for over an hour to embed a fan video at A03 but it is just not appearing. I've been through the instructions, added on the http: as youtube normally leaves it out, have tried both the old and new embed codes from youtube but my video is still not appearing on the post! I've also made sure the quotes are straight not curly, as sometimes that can be a problem too. I don't know what else I can try.

I've been through some of the tagged fanvids and there are indeed some youtube videos appearing - why isn't mine? I'm at my wits' end here ;) It's not a private video or anything like that.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

I picked a random a youtube video of Benedict Cumberbatch and tested it on my Ao3 account and it worked. I put it in as html, then switched to rich text and it showed up.
Does that help at all?

Argh! I made it rich text, it showed on the preview for me, but when I posted it, it's still missing, but thanks for the help :)

I just tried a different random video from youtube and it didn't like that one either, back to the drawing board :)

Try a different browser maybe?

Yes, thank you! It worked in explorer but not safari :)

Finally I get my videos on there when I have some time.
