The newer youtube embedding code qualifies as an applet, yes.

If you're using the old embed code it should be working; have you got both ends of the <(text)/> structure on there?

The reason for the applet ban, IIRC, is related to a combination of security vulnerabilities and inappropriate content; some people were using off-site flash playlists for music of a... eh, non-family-friendly nature. Apparently the possibility existed that someone with less innocuous goals could put together an embedded app that'd do typical virusey things, so that got plugged.

Technically all those dancing ninja and talking tomato things are against the rules as well, but kiddies really go for them and short of going through every single user page one at a time, staff can't really do anything about them.

You have to tick the 'use old embed code' box to make it work.

Sean has upgraded the system to take iframes now though. I tried using the old embed code just to be safe, and MOCpages got mad at me. When I used the new code with the iframe though, it was accepted.

The old embed codes haven't worked since a while before the iframe versions were enabled.

To get it to work you need to modify an old embed code as I explained here:

OK.

I honestly can make nothing of a lot of this conversation, seeing as though I'm not very HTML savvy. Code for embedding a basic youtube video at a small size please?

The default embed code given to you by YouTube is the iframe link which should just work as is. You can choose the size on the YouTube page.

Do you know where to find it? Click Share and select Embed Video.

You have spurious line breaks in the embed code.

You're supposed to just copy the embed code exactly as YouTube gives it to you. One single copy and one paste for the whole thing even if YouTube shows it to you over 2 or 3 lines.
