I can’t embed any YouTube videos to my site. When I copy and paste the URL into a YouTube Block it says to try again or it simply shows the URL of the YouTube video when previewing it instead of the video.
How can I fix this?

Thank you for your time.
I haven’t hired a Web Hosting service, the website isn’t public yet.
I log in to my site on WordPress.org using Bitnami and edit it from there. How can I have you take a look at the issue?June 27, 2020 at 1:20 pm #1343945LeoStaffCustomer SupportJune 27, 2020 at 1:33 pm #1343959Downtown Spanish
The videos also show up as URLs when I preview the site with the twenty twenty theme.
No actual video are showing yet.
I don’t understand why this is happening since I was able to embed videos when I downloaded GeneratePress on June 1st.June 27, 2020 at 1:47 pm #1343965Downtown Spanish
Videos not embedding yet. Anyone experiencing the same issue?June 27, 2020 at 3:55 pm #1344031TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJune 27, 2020 at 4:52 pm #1344059Downtown SpanishJune 28, 2020 at 5:40 am #1344339DavidStaffCustomer SupportJune 28, 2020 at 11:32 am #1344721Downtown Spanish
After inspecting the page, the YouTube Home Page shows 3 red signs and 1 yellow sign:
When opening the video I am trying to embed, 6 red signs show up, sometimes 3 additional yellow signs:
How do I fix these errors so I can embed the videos into my GeneratePress Site?

Those errors are specific to YouTube – their developers will need to fix those. However, they shouldn’t be the cause of the issue you’re facing.
Without seeing the site, it’s hard to debug. Do you have a live server you can test on? It could be a limitation of your local server preventing it from happening.
If you have a live test sever and can get it to happen, it would help us figure out what’s going on, as we could dig into the code a bit.June 28, 2020 at 4:58 pm #1344902Downtown Spanish
I am using Bitnami to edit my WordPress site
I put the website URL on the first edit of this forum post so you can take a look at the code!
Let me know if you can access it, otherwise, where do I get a live test server? Is Bitnami not one?June 29, 2020 at 9:33 am #1345896TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I’m not able to access that link, as it looks like it’s local to your computer. Is there a way to take it live? (I’m not familiar with Bitnami).June 29, 2020 at 9:42 am #1345905Downtown Spanish
How do I get it live? I am new to the tech world so any tips would be appreciated.June 29, 2020 at 10:32 am #1345987
