Default How to embed a Youtube

When adding a Youtube video so it appears in the post instead of just a link, there 2 ways (that I know of) to do it.
1. If you are not logged into your Youtube account, just copy the URL in your browser bar and paste it into the post.
2. Follow the directions below and paste into the post.

Another way, (the only way I know)

is to copy the URL of the youtube flick,

click the "create link" icon (above the new post composition pane),

and then paste that youtube URL it into dialog box that appears
