'Unlisted" YouTube Video doesn't display

I created an unlisted video on YouTube:

I placed this link in a post, but when I publish the post, it just displays the link, not the embedded video.

If I change the video to "Public" and republish the post, the embedded video shows up just fine.

If I change the video back to "Unlisted" and republish the post, the video goes back to being a link.

This has been tested on a clean install of WordPress using Twentyten with no plugins active, and it exhibits the same behavior.

Since the 'unlisted' status is still public, you should be able to link to videos you have a link to -- in this case it is my own video that I want to appear only on the blog.

The person who responded in the forums suggested I post this issue here.

WordPress sends the link to YouTube's oEmbed endpoint. If they choose to not return the HTML -- which seems to be the case -- then there's nothing we can do here.

Agree with nacin.

You can view the source on youtube and grab the html in the embed tags and paste it into the html of your page. I tested it here:
