Embedding a youtube video

I can't seem to post a youtube video here in the forums containing a picture of the video. I've tried the options that are given by mcb in the "go advanced" feature, the embed feature from Youtube and other recommendations from searching online but it never seems to work.

For example, I'd like to post one of my vids from Youtube. This is the URL:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By68Qh_iWJc

This is the embed option from Youtube (accessed by clicking share video, embed, and copying the html provided):
<iframe width="853" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/By68Qh_iWJc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

This is from clicking the Youtube thumbnail here on mcb in the advanced features and pasting the URL inside the "" provided:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By68Qh_iWJc&fs=1" width="644" height="390">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By68Qh_iWJc&fs=1" />https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By68Qh_iWJc">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By68Qh_iWJc
The closest so far but shows an error on my screen.

I've tried using the insert link that mcb provides also but no luck. It's funny I remember being able to do this plus many more crazy html editing when I was younger but can't seem to figure it out. I'm sure it's something very obvious that's right in front of me.
I would also like to know how to embed a text so that after clicking on a text, it will take the user to the link I wish.
Am I being dumb?

Not sure what you are doing for the video all you need to do is put the "By68Qh_iWJc" without the quotes in between the YouTube tags

Ahh that makes sense. I'm sure it was something obvious. Now if I wanted to contain that link in a text, how would I do that?

Highlight the text you want to be clickable then click on the icon with the globe and link of chain. Paste the link into the dialog box that pops up.
