I am trying to post a Streams link in a Teams channel, but it's not showing the preview for the video. Anyone know why?

Try adding a Stream tab, then paste the URL.

@Scott Tupper Thanks for the reply. Same result. I can add the tab, but there is no link preview. Also, the tab leaves much to be desired, as there is no default sorting... by date, for instance.

AFAIK it can't do this at present. There is a uservoice open for it here

But no response from Microsoft so far. I would really like to see this functionality as I record a lot of video for MCT training purposes.

Best, Chris
