    I've read the very posts on YouTube and have been trying to utilize "Insert into Post" the "From URL" tab from the "Add Video" button. It only inserts a link rather than an embed:

    i.e., <a href='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmzYovAMHE4' >FrogPad</a>

    I would have expected to see the shortcode:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmzYovAMHE4]

    The documentation says shortcode should be inserted into the post, I am using the URL and not the YouTube Embed code.

    Puzzled and have been hunting all over for a solution. Running WP 2.8.6
