Embedding videos

I am working with my faculty and have encountered a problem with embedding YouTube and Ted Talks. In our old LMS (Etudes) there was an option in the Editior to paste video embed code. I don't see any equivalent option in Canvas (beyond going into the html, which I don't want to recommend to the faculty).

Linking directly to YouTube isn't a best practice as the students will see all of the extra video recommendations. For Ted, when linking to specific Ted Talks, with the embed code you can specify the language used for the close captioning (needed to meet 508 standards).

 

What am I missing? This is critically important as my campus begins a full roll out this fall.
