    There are specific tags for embedding Youtube videos into your posts. I'll give you an example - to embed this video I'd take the bolded part of the URL, as seen below...

    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[b]EwTZ2xpQwpA[/b]
    ...and stick it between these two tags (minus the underscores):

    Code:
    [_youtubevid]EwTZ2xpQwpA[/youtubevid_]
    and it should embed just fine:yesway:

    You used the image tags around the whole URL, need to use [*youtubevid]CDjKW8EYo7g[/MEDIA], but delete the * symbol.
