Embed YouTube links as playable videos
If you post a YouTube link manually it embeds on your Facebook page.
Currently, Hootsuite creates a thumbnail image and puts up a text link to a YouTube video instead of embedding it straight on Facebook.
This is way less attractive when a user is browsing their feed, so I want to suggest embedding for YouTube (and Soundcloud) implemented when posting links from Hootsuite.
We’ll look into ways of embedding YouTube videos into posts sent to Facebook.
This is a good idea, but what about adding ACTUAL Facebook Videos? See here: https://help.hootsuite.com/requests/176864
Absolutely agree this is a pain. What's going on? There must be a work around. Anybody?

Is there any improvements on embedding YT videos from the HootSuite dashboard? Would greatly appreciate hearing any updates on this feature. Thanks!

Please not only YT or Soundcloud. Please make it possible, that you read og:video or og:flash tags....

this is very important, can anyone from Hootsuite comment on this?
David Bayles commented
Yes! Please fix this now! This is definitely a deal-breaker for me as I mostly post videos.
Chrisopher Schurmans commented
Yeah, why did that change?
Jesse Aaron commented
Yes. Yes. Yes. It used to embed the video up until like, last week when you used the share link. What happened?
