    I have clicked “Insert YouTube video” for a few different posts and they do not show up in the posts people receive in their email. They are showing up just fine if users click on the blog title and read it directly on the blog. Am I linking the videos incorrectly? It doesn’t matter if people are reading their emailed post on an iphone, ipad, or on the computer– the videos don’t show up in any place. Only if they click on the title and view the post on the blog. Thanks in advance for your help!

    The blog I need help with is melodiacakesandtreats.com.

    Video content won’t be included in the content of user subscriber email notifications. Most mail programs, if any, don’t have the ability to display video within emails.

    That said, you might try adding your videos by copying and pasting the YouTube video URL into the content area; don’t use the “Insert YouTube Video” functionality or any shortcode. By adding the video URL on it’s own line in the content, WordPress will automatically embed the video. Doing things this may also show the video URL in the content of the email; this would be better than nothing if it works the way I think it might.
