    Hello stockhola.

    The media uploader is a way for you to upload pictures to your wordpress database so they can be saved, and put into posts or pages. They can also be reused anytime because again...there saved in wordpress. Be careful though, you don't want users getting a hold of that, make sure if you allow users to register for your site, they don't have access to upload otherwise it may cause you some major headaches. If you want to post youtube videos, you can simply use the youtube embed feature and paste that code into your post, or do a search for plugin's (there are many!)
