Do you use Windows Live Writer (WLW) to write and upload blog posts?
I’ve been using it for a few years, and it’s an efficient way to manage multiple blogs. You can open WLW, select a blog name from a drop down list, and then post an article to that blog.
Since I upgraded to WLW 12, using Windows 8, I’ve had trouble getting videos to upload correctly. I copy the embed code from YouTube, and paste it into WLW, and the video appears.
However, when it’s published on the blog, something has happened between WordPress and WLW, and the videos are stripped out.
To fix the problem, I have to log in to the blog’s dashboard, and paste the embed code in the HTML page there. After that, the video works correctly, but it’s a pain to have to do this for every upload.
If you’ve figured out a better solution, please let me know.
