The video embedding on this site is a little different.

We have a "youtube tag"  (also a vimeo tag) which is needed for the video to embed.

Look at the line of icons above the post field.  You'll see one with the youtube logo.  That's it!

Or just type it out like this:

see attached image for clarification.

we chose that way because over at ff.com the automatic embed-plugin made every video link even textlinks into an embedded video.
we found it better to leave it up to you to decide if you want to embed or just share a link.
