It was because our embed generator wasn't expecting the www.
I've updated it now so you should be able to embed with or without the www. from both YouTube or Vimeo.

You could also of course embed via Distrify and get loads of other benefits ;-)

Thanks. The same problem seems to exist elsewhere in the site. For example, I was unable to embed a YouTube video in the Cameras topic although the URL exactly matched the formatting of the example in the error message.

I put in a fix for both YouTube and Vimeo to ignore the www.

Hi there –
Does anyone know if I can post my documentary on D-Word if it's a Dynamo Player? Or is Distrify, Vimeo and YouTube the only options?

We support a wide range of embeds that use the oembed protocol, including Hulu, Flickr, Viddler, and more. As far as I am aware Dynamo does not support this secure and open standard.

Thanks Peter.. so it sounds like the dynamo player won't work here on D-Word.. (right?) (Are you saying Dynamo is not secure?)

I've been meaning to upload it to Distrify anyway..
Thanks so much! I really appreciate the feedback.

Howdy Faith, I couldn't help but respond when I saw your post. We were at FSU together. Sorry I don't have an answer to your question but just wanted to say HI!

I can't speak about the security of Dynamo, but we don't support raw embeds because these are not very secure in a semi-public forum. For a technical explanation see the hidden section...

We support oEmbed because it ensures we use trusted embed formats from trusted sources and there's no way for malicious (or accidental) users to hack our forum or our users' data. Raw embeds can have scripts or other potentially malicious attacks in them. This is also the reason we use special formatting for our posts instead of HTML.
