I can play youtube video only if I go to www.youtube.com. When viewing the video using IE 8.0, if I click the embed button, copy the code, paste it to notepad, enclose the code with (html)(body)...(/body)(/html)(can't use less than greater than signs here or the newsreader won't let me post), save the file as test.html, open it using IE 8.0, it WON'T play (but FireFox will). All I see is a generic box with a small icon on the top left corner, indicating there should be a picture or video. I went into tools/security and enabled every thing that was related to Active X. Still, no change. Any help? Thanks. This is on an XP SP3.
