I try to add a youtube video in the CKeditor by clicking the icon of Youtube and by inserting the URL of the youtube video. I don't see the video in the preview window and it isn't displayed either in the content object (document).
Afterwards, when I edit the content object, I see the flash icon in the CKeditor instead of the youtube icon.

the best way to add youtube is by creating a youtube object in your repository (instead of entering the url, do "search on server" and then create the youtube object with "create" and then "browse youtube")
but I must say that this is a lot of clicking for adding a movie you had already found.

afaik adding the url does work when you add the url of the youtube page with the video, not the short "share" url but the long one

so "" does not work while "" does work (but with this method you have to manually set the size).

you can also embedd the youtube code directly in your ckeditor by hitting "source/code" button and copy-pasting the code youtube gives you.
<iframe width="560" height="349" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

so I don't know if I would classify this as a bug, more a usability issue

I used the short URL. It works fine with the long URL in the browser window.
