Other solutions:

  1. You can insert HTML of the video into post with the help of "HTML" editor tab, but it will be removed or changed by TinyMCE editor. WordPress removes iframe because of the security reasons.
  2. You can go to "Settings"=>"Media"=>"When possible, embed the media content from a URL directly onto the page..." and enable it, but this feature works not always.
