Sharing a Youtube video on forum

When I hit the "share" button beneath the youtube video, it shows a link like this. http://youtu.be/Xy0SuMKmbvU

I can't figure out how to add the actual video within a post.

The embedder does not seem to like the links that have youtube separated that way -  youtu.be  <--

What you can do is click the Share button then click the "Show Options" link to the right then click the "long link" box to the right of the code it gives you.   
Use that link -  just post it into a Post and it will embed the video.    Try this one:

Hi there,
We recently moved to a for-pay hosted site with the free version of the software, and the video embedder does not seem to work any more.  Is there any kind of configuration change that we can make?  I tried using the long link and still no love.
