Can't imagine the issue.

When you paste the link into your post, make sure it's not showing up as a hyperlink (in other words, underlined). If it is, highlight it and hit the unlink button (looks like a broken chain in your RTE toolbar).

Honestly, that's the only thing I can think of that would be causing this problem.

Manually invoke the media BBcode in your editor, like this:

Top-left of your RTE (editor), you'll see an icon that looks like an eraser...and to the left of it, very corner, you'll see a light switch.
 
Hit the light switch (this should disable your format buttons), then paste the link into your post box.

 

From that point, you can flip the switch back (if you need the format buttons, such as bold and italics), and then hit the Post button.

 

The issue is actually pasting the link.  It's hard to explain in layman's terms...but when your RTE (Rich Text Editor) is turned on, you're basically posting in a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) textbox.  

 

So, when you paste a link...it's a link, and it doesn't convert into the Youtube video.

Thanks, I was having the same issue but this helped out.
