I'm trying to use the embed feature of a post in Teams. What I'm trying to do is to just embed a YouTube <iframe> code in a post, exactly like what you can do in SharePoint, so I can see the video directly in my post. If I copy and past the youtube video embed code on a sharepoint page it will show me the video but if I do the same thing on a post in Teams using HTML it doesn't do anything. Does anyone know If I'm doing anything wrong?

@Roozbeh  That option just formats code so it's readable - it doesn't actual run it.

If you are doing this manually (not through a coded post from another app), try using the YouTube connector instead. If you don't see the YouTube icon under the conversation, click on the . . . menu and add it/pin it from there.

Yes, like Robin said this is probably the best way to go!
