Embedded Youtube videos?

Usually when I want to embed a Youtube video in a post I just give the url. However, in the thread "Astronaut Sunita Williams at the ISS" that didn't work. Any idea what the problem is?

Another post that wouldn't embed the Youtube video:

Elena Serova to become first Russian woman to visit the ISS.

Reason:
Code:
[URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOwC4KKr_-w"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HROoSDMd4Ag[/URL]
Originally posted with "https" which doesn't cause embedding of the videos.

Next edited and "https" replaced with "http" after editing the post, but the URL tag wasn't removed - no automatic embedding in this case, too.


Solution: Removing [URL] tag and saving the post with only the address of the YouTube page of the video (using "http") embeds the video.
