Firstly choose the YouTube video you wish to add and highlight the link in your address bar and copy it..

Or click the 'Share' button below the YouTube video and highlight and copy that link...

Back to MD's and click to start a 'Thread', or 'Reply' to a topic

And paste the video link in - it doesn't get any easier

Type in any additional text you wish to add, then click the 'Post New Topic' or 'Reply to Topic' button

That's it, and your video should then show within your post

It also works for other media sites such as Vimeo, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Imgur, etc - try it and see

Imgur - right click the video you want to embed > select 'Copy Video Location' > Paste into your post
Facebook - right click the video you want to embed > select 'Copy video location at current time > Paste into your post

I have updated the first post with new instructions following changes made at YouTube's end which prevented videos from being embedded
