    The vBulletin support tech provided the solution! Here it is...

    If you look at the page source, you will see it is there but has spaces in the middle of it. My guess is this is your line wrapping. Try setting AdminCP > Settings > Options > Thread Display Options (showthread) > Number of Characters Before Wrapping Text to 0 to disable this and then see if it works.
    I'm not sure if this change will have any unintended consequences or not. For now...I'm a happy camper.

    What's the difference between this forum and a support ticket?
    And do you have a link to the place where I submit the support ticket?

    Thanks,
    Richard

    Sounds like you're set right. Better put in a support ticket.

    What do you know about that??? More than I do, that's for sure.

    I'm logged in as an Administrator which has permission to do everything (CMS Permissions) in the section where video is embedded.
    In the article, I have "HTML On - Convert Linebreaks" checked.

    Are these settings correct? Any others to check? I'm using version 4.1.6.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    Your video works perfect in my CMS. Do you have HTML permission?

    Thank you for your reply. Here is the embedded code:
    <div id="evp-c9281b2c0435d46a4bbe40ea0f09f46a-wrap" class="evp-video-wrap"></div><script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.realitymarketingllc.com/evp/framework.php?div_id=evp-c9281b2c0435d46a4bbe40ea0f09f46a&id=Q3VzdG9taXplMjAxMVdQVGhlbWUvVmlkMDEtUmVtb3ZlVG9wU3BhY2 UubXA0&v=1321594674"></script><script type="text/javascript"><!--
    _evpInit('Q3VzdG9taXplMjAxMVdQVGhlbWUvVmlkMDEtUmVtb3ZlVG9wU3BhY2UubXA0');//--></script>
    On the vbulletin.org forum someone replied to me with this suggestion:
    http://www.miracletutorials.com/s3-amazon-embed-video/

    Refer to link to get embed code and examples on how to implement it. Could easily be done with a custom BBCODE
    I need to upload over 100 videos to my vBulletin 4 CMS site. Up to this point, I haven't found anything which works.

    Thanks
    Richard

    Please provide the full embed code so I can test it.

    RichardE- If it is indeed a bug it should be reported in the "Tracker" link in the navbar on top. That is the official means to report bugs and request new features. The tracker is also sometimes called JIRA- they are the same thing.

    I'm new to this forum so pardon my newbieness. Should vBulletin be notified that this is a potential bug?

    The Easy Video Player technician figured out what's wrong: spaces in the file name.

    Let me explain how this happened to help someone avoid this hassle in the future.

    There are 2 ways to store videos used by EVP:

    #1 Your hard drive ---> EVP ---> Amazon S3
    #2 Your hard drive ---> Amazon S3 ---> EVP

    Using method #1, EVP automatically replaces "spaces" with "dashes" in the file names.
    This is what I've done in the past.

    Using method #2, EVP imports the file as-is from Amazon S3 which includes dashes in the file name.
    This is what I did this time because I'm doing a bunch of videos.

    Once I fix the file name, create new source code, the video embeds just fine.

    Note: I use EVP 1 not EVP 2 which is for sale these days. It might not do this.

    Thanks everyone for helping me with this.

    Richard

    This is strange! I just upgraded Easy Video Player so maybe something happened.
    I posted your comments and your test site to the EVP support desk.

    Thank you for your help!
