why won't this video embed?

I'm trying to get this video about SMAC to embed.
Gaming History: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri "The greatest story ever played"
I use the Avea Media button to submit this YouTube video.  It gives me an error: "The embed URL was either bad or from an unsupported site. If you're trying to embed a picture, make sure the Foxy! add-on for Aeva Media is installed."  But the URL clearly works just fine.  What gives?

I've noticed that embedded videos seem to have a # at the end of the URL.  That doesn't help though:
Gaming History: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri "The greatest story ever played"

Is it the quotes in the description text?  Nope.
Gaming History: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri The greatest story ever played

Does the URL have to be repeated for it to embed?  Nope.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u7uUWYE_9M

Does it not like much of anything in the description text?  Nope.
cheesy

Does a video maker on YouTube have the ability to block a video from being embedded elsewhere?

Buster's Uncle:
Remove the s from https and it embeds automatically.

! No longer available

bvanevery:
Huh.  Well I gotta wonder why.  Although I won't waste brain cells on it.

Geo:
Because the forum isn't "secure" in the http sense. ;)
While on my cruise the site was blocked by the server on the ship.

Vidsek:
    In a related matter,  Firefox (at least) warns me that the log-on here is 'not secure' and hackers could see log-on data. ("Do you want to continue?  Click 'Yes' to expose your gonads to public scrutiny.")
 What would it take to "secure" the site?  Or at least the log-on?  Or is it actually our trick to get more Russian, Chinese, North Korean, Pakistani, Romanian, etc. folks to visit the site?

 I'm not terribly concerned, but not entirely comfortable either.
