DailyMotion Problems Solved: View Robert's Video Now [en]

[fr] La vidéo de Robert Scoble que j'ai faite à LIFT'06 est maintenant réparée et visible dans le billet initial.

Finally! With help from Olivier of DailyMotion, I’ve solved the [DailyMotion problems](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/09/dailymotion-problems/ “A description of what was bothering me.”) which prevented the [wild videocast of Robert Scoble](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/ “Read the post, enjoy the video.”) from playing correctly in the post I’d written.

I had copied the code from [another video I’d embedded](http://steph.wordpress.com/2005/11/27/youtube-or-dailymotion/ “View the post and video. A fun one shot with Michel Valdrighi.”) in a post on my [Cheese Sandwich Blog](http://steph.wordpress.com “This is where I test wordpress.com and writing boring stuff.”), and changed the video ID. The only problem is that DailyMotion code includes a key which is blog-specific, so people were getting an error message when they tried to play the video on the blog. I tried republishing the video here using their “blog this” feature, but that didn’t embed it properly. Finally, Olivier pointed me to the “manual” option — which I hadn’t seen, although it was what I was looking for! — which simply spits out code for you to copy-paste into your blog.

So, if you gave up earlier, or didn’t have a chance to see it, go and [watch Robert being podcasted by two swiss guys at LIFT’06](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/ “Optional bunny entertainment included.”).
