Videopress Short Tags not working when pulling page into template

I’ve got it… for anyone else having this problem…

  1. Go to where your media is kept on your account i.e. Media > Library

  2. Go to edit the video and make sure that ‘Display share menu and allow viewers to embed or download this video’ – this is so that you can click the ‘share’ menu on the embedded video on an actual page, grab the embed link and paste it into your html code

  3. Go back to your media page and disable the share menu again if you want to protect your videos.
