[SOLVED] How do I embed a youtube video in a post

Question

 I would like to know how to embed a youtube video in a post. I copied the code provided in youtube then in the post use the "<>" tool to paste the code.

Example: When I try here.... so you can see the issue I'm getting (below)

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/R9So0UDGFsw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

What am I doing wrong? Much appreciated for your help.

Can I add on to this?

Is there a way to make the YT videos smaller? Having them so huge isn't the visual look I like for my posts, lol.

Do you hit enter after copying the URL? 

If you do, you should see a preview of the video in your post. If you just add a space to keep typing, it doesn't work.:

Space: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYqfHaAkplw 

No space:

That is indeed not correct. There are no tags needed. Just copy the URL and hit enter :)
