The key to embedding videos so they will display correctly in IFrame-incompatible systems may be to use what is called the Old Embed Code. This option is provided in YouTube through a check box labeled Use Old Embed Code. However, there are some videos that do not have this option.
Fortunately, there is a free tool called the Valid XHTML YouTube Embed Code Generator, which will generate the Old Embed Code. They also have a tool for videos from Vimeo. Start by copying and pasting the URL from the video you want to embed. The tool has options for specifying:
- Video dimensions
- Menu and border color
- Looping and auto play functions
- Full screen availability
- And more
When finished, click the Generate Code button. Copy and paste the code into your web page, then sit back and enjoy some videos!
