Over on Meta Stack Exchange, SQB asked Which sites have YouTube embedding on?

Searching on Puzzling Meta, I was able to find a post requesting support for code snippets, but found no mention of embedded YouTube videos. Additionally, YouTube embedding is not shown in the markdown preview window, so there's no way to test without posting publically.

I originally planned on testing in The Riddle Sandbox, but that doesn't seem to fall in line with the Sandbox's intended use.

Are embedded YouTube videos supported on Puzzling?

  • $\begingroup$ If you knew the answer, why ask the question. If it is something you want you could have just made the meta post about a feature request. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This question was my way of testing whether the feature was supported or not. I did not know the answer beforehand. (My answer containing the URLs was me testing) $\endgroup$

At the moment, it does not. If you do want it to support this, you should create a new meta post, with the tag , and include a collection of posts that would benefit from such a change, there's a chance that we could support embedding YouTube videos.


There's only one way to find out.
