    hey james, this is what has worked for me. maybe you have tried it but here it goes:

    when writing a post make sure you click on the "code" tab instead of the visual tab. once in that field, hit "code" in the menu bar below the tab so that "<code>" shows up in the field. after that place your embedded video code, then hit code in the menu bar again to close it off "</code>". so it should look like this (using your example embedded code below, i've bolded for emphasis what you need to see before and after your embedded code to make it work)

    <code><object width="425" height="355">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.y00utube.com/v/dz3tPxUFGbY&rel=1 <http://www.y00utube.com/v/dz3tPxUFGbY&rel=1> ">
    </param><param name="wmode" value="transparent">
    </param><embed src="http://www.y00utube.com/v/dz3tPxUFGbY&rel=1 <http://www.y00utube.com/v/dz3tPxUFGbY&rel=1> " type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object></code>

    hope that helps. as far as, "How can i hide my url?"---can't help you there. sorry...
