Over on gaming.stackexchange.com I often see YouTube videos embedded in questions and answers. Here is an example.

I see in the source that there is not special markup, just the youtube.com url alone on one line. I tried that on SuperUser but it doesn't work the same way.

I also tried the standard image markup (![description](url)) but that did not work, either.

Is there a way to embed YouTube videos in a question or answer on SuperUser?

  • Is there much need for embedding YouTube?

  • I assume there is not much need because this question has not been asked before. If the answer is "No" then so be it. Nov 22, 2011 at 14:42

Not available on Super User.

YouTube and SoundCloud embedding is now enabled

It is now possible to embed YouTube and SoundCloud content in posts here. […]
