I get better results when posting video by using the video button on the toolbar.

It works well for me.  Are copying the embed code from youtube?

This can happen if the src url in the iframe is non-secure (http://) instead of secure (https://).

Edit:
Read your question too fast. Seeing that you got an error, most likely it's not what I mentioned, but doesn't hurt to check.
What I mentioned usually results in an empty area where the video should be.

just ran and tested it and posted a listing.  worked fine.  Are you sure you are using the embed code from youtube? vs the link.

Never have any problems. I'd need to see the html code. Can't just use a link like in WP.

When it 'takes' there will be a grey box but not the actual video showing.

I'm sure Craig has the 411!

I have ALWAYS used the 'share/embed' from YT then I have a code to center it . . . plug it into the source code and it usually works. LOL
