I usually just give a link to a video if I want to show it, but I've noticed that most users manage to actually show the video in their post. How do I do that?

You need to remove the 's' in the hyperlink for the video, which will almost always appear as https:// if you are copy/pasting the link into a post

When you reply to a post, it says "YouTube Videos" on the right side. Click on that and follow the example of the link. Make sure not to include "s" in https, and that you use "www" before youtube.com.
