Fixing Youtube "Embedding disabled by request"

So, one of my team's videos was showing this error: "embedding disabled by request". I have no idea how that setting got changed, as I simply uploaded it and then tried to embed it into our website.

As you'd expect, this was obnoxious. Finding the solution was a bit annoying, too, as the most recent post I found, from 2009, Which, as you might expect, wasn't helpful. However, I did get it figured out.

  • Go to This will give you the master list of all your videos.
  • Skim through to the video in question, click "Edit". 

  • Go to "Advanced Settings" 

  • Scroll down to "Distribution Options" & Click Allow Embedding"
