FAQ #268: How do I add videos and other media to my entries?

I was just answering a Support question about embedding youTube video in an entry.

According to FAQ #268: How do I add videos and other media to my entries?, you are supposed to add embedded video using the Embed Video link. As far as I can tell, that just adds an lj-embed tag around the code produced by youTube.

Personally, I never use the Embed Video link, I just drop the youTube code into the entry. So, my question is, what is what does the lj-embed tag do, since videos work fine without it? Thanks!
