I've seen on other boards and I thought we had it here at one point but is it possible to maybe get an option to embed Youtube clips or perhaps from other similar video sites?

Yes but it's generally considered a security risk.

oh, ok, just thought I'd check.  So you'd prefer just linking to it instead?

Yeah.  I don't think the risk/reward is worth allowing them to be embedded in posts.

I still haven't figured out what I installed to make the videos show up on this site. If I do figure it out, I'll let you know.

There may well be an add-on for Firefox that will embed videos in the pages YOU see.  In fact, I'd be surprised if there isn't.

Are you using Firefox or some other browser?  Nevermind.  I see the adblock plus tabs ;)

Do me a favor and click "Tools > Add-ons" and show me a picture of that if you don't mind.
