Hi there Bengalireview,
You can add a Video to your blog by using the "Embed Code" that YouTube gives you. Click on the HTML button in the tool bar in the post body tools when you are adding a new post and add the embed code there. When you click on HTML again you will see your video.

You can do the same with Google Maps.

You need to get the embed code from the Map (see image)
and then add that to the HTML of your blog post. (again, you do this by clicking on the HTML button in the toolbar)

You will then see your map on your page.

I hope this helps.

Hey Jeremy thanks for responding. It is a lot clearer now. I tried it with google maps but everytime I added the html code to the bottom of the post while in html mode, the map didn't show. Should I be adding the html code somewhere else within the post body while its in HTML mode?
