How do I embed a youtube video into a post?

Please give step by step directions (and don't just say something like: oh just e-mail me the link, I'll post it for you).
I want to learn.
Thanks.

lol you need the "long url" of the youtube video. If you post that it will automatically embed.

In youtube, you click on the Share button then Options then Long Link       then you cut and paste that link into ur post.

Hope that helps inshallah!

Salams Rahma,

Yes I see they got rid of the 'long format' thing!! Grrr... OK I think the only way is to watch the video in youtube and copy what comes up in your URL bar at the top of your browser. That should be the long form of the video like:
Code:
http://www youtube.com/watch?v=ZKV7s1Ph-mE

and that should work to

It works!  Yea!

And I love the veggie burger video!
But where in the US do you get Marmite?  What's the US equivalent?  Any kind of yeast here is in powder, granular or flake form.
