Yes you can

1) Each video in you tube has a VideoID which is the text following the "=" sign in a youtube URL, so for instance for the youtube video at "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qJqOyHxgKg" the VideoID is "3qJqOyHxgKg". Select the VideoID in the URL and copy to the clipboard with Ctrl-C
2) Click in your post and press Ctrl-V; the VideoID will be inserted into your post.
3) Select the VideoID by double-clicking on it. If you wish the video to appear at the default size then click the "youtube" button above the edit box and text of the form [youtube ]3qJqOyHxgKg[/youtube ] ( without the spaces) should appear, which will embed the video in your post . ( If you want to specify the size of the video, you will have to specify the width and height as two numbers following the VideoID separated by spaces, then select all the text and click the "youtubesize" button at the top of the edit box, the resulting text should be similar to [youtubesize ]3qJqOyHxgKg 1000 600[/youtubesize ]
