YouTube & Wordpress, Oh My (A Plea For Help)

A funny thing happened during my simple quest to add a YouTube video to one of my posts. It wouldn’t happen. After hours of fruitless attempts to fix (and helpful suggestions from fellow bloggers/YouTubers), I’m at a loss.   No help on WordPress or YouTube help pages, either. Anyone figure this out?

1.  I joined YouTube, selected a user name, confirmed the email address, and located the video I wanted to attach. (Yes, I’m signed in).

2. Selected the “post video” option, clicked to add my blog to video posting/clicked to add a blog-site.

3.  Selected WordPress as my blog service, added my user name and password, and waited.

4. YouTube gives me this message ” An error has occurred. Message: Unknown
Reason: <ProtocolError for abbyf.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php: 302 Moved Temporarily>”

Anyone have advice?  Thanks.
