You just post the link and it should automatically convert it into the video.

The link to the individual main page for the vid or the premade link from youtube? I have tried the premade link and it hasnt worked for me. So for the time being I have given up going into one of my favorite threads...

At youtube play the video.
Copy the link, have it ready.
Use the attachment symbol (globe with link).

Did you give up when you did not see the video in preview mode--it won't show there.
Try again.

I usually press "share" below the video and then copy that link into my post. That's the thing that works, I think, because copying the link from the address bar never seems to do the trick.
