I use the JW video player plugin that has a lot of display options. To get the video into the post just copy the url from youtube, edit it to gt the link information and paste into a shortcode where I want it to appear on my post.
For example this link is to a youtube video of the Eagle playing Hotel California:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2cpUOdPDbw&feature=related. All you need for the shortcode is this bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2cpUOdPDbw
The shortcode looks like this:
You may have to mess about with the settings in the video play to get the width and horizontal placement right but after that it's a piece of cake. It will alos work with other video streams but you'll have to experiment with the links in the the shortcode.
