    See the smilely face, image, video icon in the reply box header
    Click on the Video Icon, it allows you paste the link so you can embed it.
    I just copied and pasted the YouTube shortcode for "Share" in the Embed dialog here for video emedding

    and in fact, you can just grab the url from a youtube video and paste it in the box and that will work.

    Give it a try... if it doesn't work, you can delete the post

    The video needs to be "hosted" somewhere. I find Youtube to be very simple to use. Any video hosting website will work (I assume). Vimeo and dailymotion are a couple others. Flickr even has a cludgy way of hosting videos.
