    Are you sure it's the code and not the url?

    well, if you were to embed this for example, copy the code where it says "embedded" to the right:
    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WHzqMa9hZew"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WHzqMa9hZew" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>
    

    now, hack the <object> tags off it (beginning and end, please scroll all the way through the above and bellow example to see what I mean) cos they have been disabled by myspace (doesnt make any difference though, dont know why) and they'll just appear as text above the player, which is no good! now it looks like the following:
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WHzqMa9hZew"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WHzqMa9hZew" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed>
    

    then stick that wherever you want it :)

    edit: now I see you specified myspace blog, I have no idea what the code restrictions are for the blogs, might find you're not allowed any embedded thingies in the blog. in which case you'll just have to link it...
