Well, not everyone uses TinyMCE (I personally _hate_ the thing and
physically delete it from all my non-dev installs), plus last I looked, you
couldn't use it to embed YouTube, etc. into posts. Copy/pasting from YouTube
itself has always worked, but it'll break your page validation due to
<embed>, you have to click to activate in IE, etc.

I'll probably drop support for embedding actual video files via my plugin
through TinyMCE though as getting them to work is/was a HUGE pain. More than
happy to let TinyMCE take care of that.

Thanks a ton. A lot to read and I'm not that good with TinyMCE, but it's
sure a huge help.
