Embedding Problems

I'm currently having problems embedding YouTube videos into the Hotspot Edit Spot. I am not an experienced coder, the code that YouTube provides me for embedding doesn't work when I plug it in. I found another persons code for show casing a video it works sorta. I was wondering if you have a template for a videos that I could use and swap out the embedding source with mine or just have a Whole other way of putting videos into the Hotspot view. Im currently working with your free version. I don't know if thats would play a factor in getting this to work or not.

YouTube's Code doesn't work:

<object width="640" height="360"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/CsLEBDqmcU0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/CsLEBDqmcU0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="360" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Other person's Code that sorta works:

<object width="425" height="350">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/AyPzM5WK8ys" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AyPzM5WK8ys"
wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350" />

Hi there! It's not yet possible to do this reliably in the current version of the 360 viewer unfortunately as you will still have a problem where the video popup will hide when you move your mouse and the video will still keep playing while being hidden.

We are releasing new video hot-spots in the coming release with support for youtube videos where you would just paste your video id in SpotEditor, but it's still being finalized.. Please stay tuned - hopefully it's just about 3-4 more weeks before we wrap up 3.5.
