Wrong regex $yt_pattern to manage YouTube videos in wp_video_shortcode

wp_video_shortcode uses the following regular expression to find YouTube videos and make them play correctly inside MediaElementJS player :

$yt_pattern = '#^https?://(:?www\.)?(:?youtube\.com/watch|youtu\.be/)#';

I think the :? in front of www and youtube are here to make the parenthesis non capturing. In this case this is incorrect : the right signs to use are ?:. The current formulation (:?) will optionally match a :.

Note that this is not really a bug, because there are no consequences : matches are not used afterward, and : will never appear in a URL at this place. But this is confusing and might cause a bug later.
