Embedding videos

 I seem to recall that in the past, when you pasted in a link to a YouTube video on these forums, it would automatically embed that video into the forum discussion, now it only places a link. I know embedding  is still possible since I see others doing it. How do you embed a video rather than just placing a link? 

Example:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=H2EIsnr_cv4

    It needs to follow a certain syntax (not mobile version but www.youtube.com/watch?v={video id} ):




    Core i7-7700k @ 4.9 Ghz | 32 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance @ 3000Mhz | 2x 1TB Samsung Evo | 2x 4GB WD Black
    ASUS MAXIMUS IX HERO | MSI AERO GTX 1080 OC @ 2000Mhz | Corsair Carbide Series 400C White (RGB FTW!) 

    Be kind to one another :)
