Editing wordpress post eats videos

Post by scrawl » 12 Dec 2013, 00:16

It looks like the videos disappeared from the blog post again. I tried to fix it, but I have the same problem as in this post: http://forum.openmw.org/viewtopic.php?f ... ess#p18940
I did it exactly like lgro mentioned here http://forum.openmw.org/viewtopic.php?f ... ess#p18943 and the videos keep getting eaten when I publish or preview the post.
Any ideas?

I can see lgro was able to fix it.
Even if I load the current fixed version of the post, not changing anything and previewing/saving it, the video is gone. It also doesn't matter if I use the plaintext or wysiwyg editor.
Is this maybe a permission issue? @lgro: Can you try doing it from a non-admin account?

It's probably a permission issue. I don't have much experience with wordpress, but I know on Joomla with default security settings, you have to be not just admin but Super-Admin (tada!) to be allowed embeds. Otherwise, any <iframe>, <applet>, or <embed> tags are stripped out when saving.
