I'm guessing you have to do it this way if you use the visual editor? Otherwise you can just use the embed code and it works least for me...

The direct embed code works for me as well most of time. but sometimes it just wont work. So I think I will use this plugin to see how it works. Can you give me the link where it is being used to see how it is working.
