Hello @LindaK298 ,

 

I'm not seeing any new emails, or even a deleted draft in your account, so I'm not sure where you're getting a rejected video link error. I'd recommend following this article's instructions, and make sure the YT video URL you're entering is either its provided share url, or the standard address bar version without any extraneous coding. Additionally, make sure the video isn't unlisted or private in your account, otherwise embedly won't be able to pull the info for the video block.

 

Otherwise your backup would be to do the standard image link workaround.
