Dumb Q: how to embed a YouTube video?

It seems like it should be really easy, but I can't seem to do it...

How do I embed a YouTube video in a post?

Any help appreciated!

Thanks soshified! A big help. But it doesn't seem to be working yet - it's coming up with a big white blank rectangle

Re: Dumb Q: how to embed a YouTube video?

you only insert whatever is after the v=

so in your case, put [youtube]9sZQTky3rPg[/ youtube] (without the space in [/ youtube] ofc)
