Accept YouTube Short URL as well as YouTube ID

Right now when someone enters the YouTube ID and the long YouTube URL the video will display. Is there a way to get the YouTube Short URL to work? It would be much easier for users to enter the short/share URL than trying to explain to them to enter the ID.

Is there maybe a way to do this with Find and Replace? Basically finding the short URL and exchanging the input to the long URL?
