Can't quite figure out the original link here, or I'd be happy to fix it.

 For regular youtube videos, use the embed icon, which is directly below the Italics icon (second row, above the emoticons, second from left).

Just hit the embed icon and then paste the youtube  "share" link into that. See if that works.

Yes. Be advised that in embedding vids.

One is to do as eddie says, and paste the embed code into the space left after you press the embed icon (</>) above.

When you get embed code from youtube, it will often look like this:
<iframe width="853" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/7b5CKSqlz60?list=PLE5E7F99D70D6C2A2" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

What you MUST do for it to work is add an "http:" before the "//", such that it becomes
<iframe width="853" height="480" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/7b5CKSqlz60?list=PLE5E7F99D70D6C2A2" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

which when properly done looks like this:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/7b5CKSqlz60?list=PLE5E7F99D70D6C2A2" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/7b5CKSqlz60?list=PLE5E7F99D70D6C2A2</a>

Hope this helps.

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/OINa46HeWg8?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Fixed. Just add the "http:"

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/OINa46HeWg8?feature=player_embedded" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/OINa46HeWg8?feature=player_embedded</a>

You can also adjust the frame size to match the one in the embed code.

BTW, loved the video.

You can also change the size of the embed to maximize it in the Diner Window.  At the beginning, where it says [embed=640, 360], change the numbers to 1056, 594.  Did that here.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/OINa46HeWg8?feature=player_embedded" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/OINa46HeWg8?feature=player_embedded</a>

Highlight the whole code and hit the centering button on the top line of buttons to center it on the page
