Thanks Christopher. Maybe get rid of the YouTube icon in the message box that doesn't work?

I found the embed workaround a while ago, but sure would be nice if the YouTube paste the URL just worked, if not, it should be removed and stop tempting us with its ease of use! :face-icon-small-hap

Still trying to figure out WHY it stopped working all of a sudden.
