Can we have embedding of YouTube and SoundCloud links?

+6
−0

Is it possible to have YouTube and SoundCloud links embed directly into the body of a post? It is likely that many posts will make use of such links, and it will make for a nice user experience.

While there is certainly no rush for such a feature since the community has only just been launched, I thought it might be worthwhile to put the idea out as early as possible.

In case it helps, here is an example of what an embedded YouTube link looks like on Music Fans SE.

Yes, yes we can.

Any raw link to YouTube or Spotify (that is, the URL on its own, without any descriptive text) will now turn into an embed when you load the page. Behold:

Still working on SoundCloud, but Spotify was easy so I threw it in.
