How do I embed an Youtube video into a post here?

I know that it is possible, because I have seen other posts with embedded videos. But whenever I copy the embed text from youtube into the edit post window, the text disappears when I save draft or try to preview.

I have gone as far as trying to copy the html code directly from a post with a video in it, but the end result was the same.

Can anyone help me?


EDIT: Thank you all for the help, it seems that I only need to copy the video link in text form to get the embed automagically. Personally, I think this is a bad solution – what if I DO want just the text link out there? Anyway. Now I know.

    You just paste the link to the video. It does the embedding itself.

    Make sure there are no html tags around the link as well. That always seems to mess it up for me.

    It’s a bit weird I know, just paste the link in text format. It will come out embedded.
