    But first, a long wait for a message from our sponsor:

    (I don't have a problem w/ ads, it's just that an ad shouldn't be the first thing you see when you click on a video link)

    Hi Minh,

    Actually embedding of user generated Soapbox videos still works:


    See this video on MSN Soapbox

    What you can't embed are premium videos like the one you tried to add here. That's due to licensing restrictions so you only get a linkto option in those cases.

    Hope that helps.

    Aaahhh... Thanks for the clarification, Grace.

    I'm just aghast that there are still record companies trying to restrict 320x240 blurry videos from being viewed by as many people as possible. The good thing is that in these days of Amazon Music, iTunes Plus, and Zune (whatever your DRM-free store is called), those companies will die.
