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.”).

DailyMotion Problems [en]

[fr] Un problème avec DailyMotion, heureusement réglé. Si vous n'avez pas pu voir la vidéo où je fais la bobette derrière Robert Scoble, c'est le moment d'y aller!

You probably know I like [DailyMotion](http://dailymotion.com/Steph “See my videos there.”). I posted some [feedback about DailyMotion](http://steph.wordpress.com/2006/02/05/dailymotion-feedback/) yesterday, and bumped into some naughty problems today.

The problem with DailyMotion is that it doesn’t have a nice forum or a real devblog like [coComment](http://cocomment.com) where we can leave feedback. So I’m posting it to my blog and tagging it in hope it will be found. By the way, I’ve been wondering [what the best place is](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2005/12/18/split-identity-crisis/) for this kind of feedback: here or [on the Cheese Sandwich Blog](http://steph.wordpress.org/tag/geek)? What’s your take?

After LIFT’06, I put [this video of Robert being interviewed](http://www.dailymotion.com/Steph/video/39332) online and [wrote a post about it](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/) here. Unfortunately, it seems at least one of my readers is [not able to view it](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/#comment-54798) . (I guess there are at least 20 of you out there who just didn’t tell me about it.) The message says something about a key not being valid for this blog.

DailyMotion allows you to [blog your videos directly from the site](http://www.dailymotion.com/doc/faq#section_15). That’s neat, but as I’m a control freak, I like dealing with the code myself. Back in November I had [posted a video to my other blog](http://steph.wordpress.com/2005/11/27/youtube-or-dailymotion/), so I grabbed the code from over there, adapted it (video id), and it seemed to work. Actually, that was because I was still logged in to my DailyMotion account.

I first tried adding CTTS to my DailyMotion account, as a second blog. That failed (error message, just doesn’t work). As I was writing this post, I tried logging out of DailyMotion, and actually saw the message all my poor readers have been seeing these last days! In a click of my trackpad I was able to fix everything.

So, if you haven’t seen me [goofing off behind Robert Scoble as David and Marc-O try to podcast him](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/02/04/wild-videocast-of-robert-scoble-interview/) (red wine and Apple hardware involved), now’s the time to do it! Sorry for the buggy post, and thanks a lot to [Raphael](http://www.electronlibre.ch/electronnews) for pointing out the problem to me.
