Is it possible to embed YouTube vids in SMF?

A quick Googling suggests that there's at least one admin-installable mod out there:

Fixed. I was not sure about embedding flash - for security concerns.

But honestly, if you keep your flashplayer up to date, it shouldn't be a big deal.
Speaking of which, I need to update mine. Recent exploit came out.

Ah, maybe the problem is that I'm using my iPad. No Flashy-Flashy.

Odd.

At first, the embeds didn't show up, but tapping there (on my iPad), the audio would play but no video. Quit the browser and restarted and everything is fine now. Never seen that exact behavior before.

Weird, that worked for me too.

Here's one tricky thing: it doesn't show in the preview option. Sad

I like it! Didn't know that Lynch had a band. And does sound suitably Lynchian.   Cool

Yeah, him and John Neff put this one together. Love that Lynch is playing the guitar...the quote being he plays it upside down and backwards like a lap steel. Since this one he's done two more...all perfect bar music for Twin Peaks films...and late nites on the keyboard...

I'm still not able to do so...

I've tried a few methods.  No embedding HTML ... makes good sense for security. 

Using the flash method, I've tried with changing the url in a few different ways and still no dice.

URL tags won't embed, it just puts a link into the post.

Any reason we can't just have one of the free YouTube embed plugins?

DO NOT expect to see it in preview though - this is what kills me.
I like to see if my posts work ahead of times, with new formatting.

Preview DOES NOT WORK.

Yes. I cannot add mods here.
