I'm moving an old site from ExpressionEngine to Wordpress. The blog has over 3000 posts and some of them have YouTube videos embedded in them using code like this:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" width="425" height="344" /></object>

Unfortunately, Wordpress doesn't display a Youtube box in the entry. It's just a blank space. And there are way too many such posts to change manually. Any fast workarounds to convert or rewrite them to the code format that YouTube uses now? I'm no regex expert, sadly.
