Adding to my shop a video from YouTube

I am following instructions to insert videos with the rich text editor. Step 8 tells me: In your Shopify admin, click the insert video button in the rich text editor... but I cannot find a rich text editor option for inserting video in the 'Maker' theme. I am only finding rich text editor option for the 'introduce your brand' section. How do I access rich text editing for this purpose??? Thanks!

which has nothing to do with a theme or it's theme settings. Look in content admins, /admin/products, admin/pages etc . I.e native admin content management or rich text editor NOT some setting in a theme.

For a specific theme you need to read that themes documentation on theme sections used for media or related theme settings.

Thank you! 

Also, can you tell me how I know what version of a theme I am using? My store currently uses the Debut theme, but I want to know whether it is 16.0.0, 17.10.0 or other...

Open a themes visual designer and open the theme actions menu( click the three dots next to the name).

You can also find it typically at the top of the theme file settings_schema.json
