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.

@Robin Nilsson We have no YouTube connector. Embed feature is so basic. Prefer that to avoid exactly this type of problem. Sad.

Try adding the connector to the team - for me, if I click the . . . menu under the conversation, you can click on the 'more apps' and search for YouTube.
You can also add apps to a team via . . . menu on the team name > manage team > apps tab
The app gives you the ability to easily add to a post, or you can add a video as a channel tab.
Companies can turn off applications, so that may be a problem. And I'm not sure if it's available in Edu or GCC tenants - I don't follow their limitation.

@mark_wh Can we use the embed feature in Sharepoint, then display the video in Teams via a Sharepoint tab? This is the work around for displaying a Sway.

@Robin Nilsson The youtube plugin just does not find the video I try to put there. No matter what I look for a lot is on the list but the one I want. Even if I give the exact link, It will show other videos. It is so frustrating. What is going on?

@Petyo Because you have to look for the exact title name of your video to insert it via Youtube app. Do not paste the link.

@ValeCapetillo I know, but even that way it would not give a hit sometimes. It is like a censorship. I am working in IT, I tried many things believe me.
