How to embed video?

How do I embed YouTube videos into posts? If it’s HTML can somebody please give me the tags with an example. (I’m inept at this sort of thing now).

As far as I know, you cannot embed them, you can only post a link to them.

I thought I’d seen videos in posts before. Like, the YouTube thumbnail that you click on and it starts playing right in the post. Does the URL function produce that? I know if you just paste the URL straight into the post with no code, in the preview it shows up as a still image.

direct paste onto its own singular line like the below, but without the @@@.

Yes. Just copy/paste the URL from YouTube.
