Okay, let's try this again. You now see YouTube and Vimeo buttons on the toolbar. If you want to embed a video from either one of these sites, simply paste the video link into your post (best to put it on a line by itself), select it, and press either the YouTube or Vimeo button. If you just want to link without embedding, just use the link button or simply past the link. Examples below:

Embedded:



And here's what that code looks like:

Excellent, honey. For everybody else, @AmyG's been working all day (and evening), trying to find ways to get video embedding to work. I think she deserves a round of applause for getting this up and running.
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

Let me be the first to second that sentiment; well done to @AmyG, and thank you for finding that delicious clip.

Youtube embedding is easier than before in that you don't need to use the source view and can use the WYSYWIG editor when embedding video. Just click the youtube button and paste your link.

Unfortunately, the improvements they made to youtube embedding made it so that earlier youtube links are now broken. Vimeo links still work the same way so there's no problem there. For youtube, you now need to exclude the https://youtu.be.com/ part of the url. Just put the code after it. In the case of the above video, that's vsVJdzM_-cQ. So your old videos will give you an error until they are fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience. I am still researching a work around.

EDIT: No need for a work around. Chris and I fixed all the existing youtube embeds. There were only 42. A fact that Is all at once fortunate and sad.
