 When a user is using a mobile phone to post to Wordpress, and they copy
 and paste a YouTube URL, YouTube changes the URLs of it's videos when
 accessed on a mobile phone by adding an m. before the URL, like:

 This results in Wordpress not recognizing that it is a YouTube URL and
 oEmbed does not render as a result.

 This causes problems when using Press This as Press This grabs the URL
 which has an m. in it.  This is a problem when a user has copied a YouTube
 URL on their phone (via the URL address bar, or the share menu on most
 phones) and they try to paste it into an article, because, again, YouTube
 puts that m. in the URL.

 In order to make this work, perhaps a filter that removes the m. from
 YouTube URLs would help and the URLs could then render.
