Update to audio and YouTube embedding in blogs and profiles

Hi all,

I've changed the audio player in blogs and profiles away from the old outdated Flash based one to use an HTML5 standard one. This should generally lead to a better experience across different browsers and may also allow some to use audio that couldn't before.

I've also fixed YouTube embedding in blogs and enabled it in profiles (description and samples section). I.e. if you just put text of the format https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<id for video here> in a blog entry or profile the YouTube video will automatically be embedded. You may notice some previous links you already added to a profile now showing as a video.

As ever, please respond with feedback / problems.

Thanks to all our users for the great content they post on WOL!

Nice to see a picture from the video about my Trainspotters collection pop up on my Profile page. Thanks for that, Paul! And for all your hard work.
