Onion embed troubles?

Getting rejected for trying to sift an Onion embed. Seems to formatted simply...

<iframe frameborder="no" width="480" height="270" scrolling="no" src="http://www.theonion.com/video_embed/?id=20876"></iframe>

Any suggestions? This video does not appear to be available on YouTube or other alternate source.

How do you connect a series of YouTube videos?

I want to post a long video that has been cut into several sections. I've seen people post videos where they show the different sections when you mouseover the video, and the next one starts automatically at the end. For example: http://www.videosift.com/video/Why-Star-Trek-Generations-is-the-Stupidest-Movie-Ever-Made

Is there a guide for doing this somewhere?

Sifty is killing my embed! What's wrong?

I'm trying to submit an Onion vid. I paste the embed code, and the validation passes. I click submit, and suddenly the code is no longer valid!

I compare what I pasted to what was in the embed box after submitting, and there's a big chunk missing! In fact it's the <embed src= > parameter!

What is going on? I'm trying to submit this:


<object width="480" height="430"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://www.theonion.com/content/themes/common/assets/onn_embed/embedded_player.swf?image=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theonion.com%2Fcontent%2Ffiles%2Fimages%2FPOST_APOCALYPTIC_article.jpg&videoid=93495&title=Are%20Violent%20Video%20Games%20Adequately%20Preparing%20Children%20For%20The%20Apocalypse%3F" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.theonion.com/content/themes/common/assets/onn_embed/embedded_player.swf"type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="always" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="transparent" width="480" height="430"flashvars="image=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theonion.com%2Fcontent%2Ffiles%2Fimages%2FPOST_APOCALYPTIC_article.jpg&videoid=93495&title=Are%20Violent%20Video%20Games%20Adequately%20Preparing%20Children%20For%20The%20Apocalypse%3F"></embed></object>


And I have no idea why these things are appearing in this post:</embed></param></param></param></param>
