Once you're in the box, just use the Add/Reorder dropdown menu to select Media / Widget, as in this screenshot:

Then, in a different tab, go to the YouTube video you want to use and click Share and then EmbedCopy the Embed code.

Go back to your box in LibGuides and copy the embed code into the Media / Widget box you created.  You can play with the dimensions of the box by changing the numbers in the embed code (make them larger to make the video bigger, or make them smaller to make the video smaller).

Your video should now show up as a playable video rather than a link on your LibGuide.
