Tools / Plugins
One of the great features in WordPress that is rarely mentioned is oEmbeds. This give the ability for WordPress users to simply paste a link (the main URL) to their YouTube video (and other services) directly into their visual editor. This saves a blog / website owner from learning how to find the embed code, format the application to be the correct size, then switch to the HTML editor to paste in the code.
