The embedding works through a process called oEmbed, this required Youtube
to offer your WordPress install the HTML code to embed it.

In this case, The uploader of the video has disabled embedding.

You can check this by clicking "Share" under the youtube player, and then
selecting "Embed" You'll get a message to that effect..
