Thanks for your reply. I am still not having any luck. Here is what I have tried.

Embed code provided by Youtube....

<iframe width="1280" height="720" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/C0DPdy98e4c?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Embed code wrapped by the code tags...

Code:
<iframe width="1280" height="720" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/C0DPdy98e4c?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Embed code wrapped in HTML tags...

HTML Code:
<iframe width="1280" height="720" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/C0DPdy98e4c?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Embed code wrapped in the PHP tags....

PHP Code:
<iframe width="1280" height="720" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/C0DPdy98e4c?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe

Problem solved. You are correct. It is just that simple. Copy and paste the link into the post, and only after you submit the post will it show up. It will not show up when preview post is used. Hopefully this helps somebody else in the future.

Ugh, I wish I knew this before spending an excessive amount of time previewing my post multiple times! I figured this out after giving up and submitting my post anyways. Well, good to know from now on.

Guess it is good practice to preview posts anyways lol.
