How do I embed or link a Youtube video?

I want to post a link or embed a Youtube video, but I am having trouble. It comes up with an error message. I am copying the link from Youtube into the 'link' box (looks like a blue/green dot with a Lexus logo on it (?). I can't get the Youtube button to work without anj error message.

I did search for a procedure but found none in this category or by searching all the forums. Did I miss something?

Thanks!

Got it. Google made some changes.......

The user needs to go to options
Name:  youtube.jpg
Views: 109
Size:  38.0 KB

and select the long link option
Name:  youtube1.jpg
Views: 114
Size:  57.1 KB

Then it will work without the youtube tags.
