Default Can you integrate YouTube video?

In most forums I have used, you are able to integrate a youtube video. you will typically add a html code from youtube in the text to do that. The viewer of the forum will see the picture of youtube video in the post. When the viewer clicks on this picture, the video will start to play directly in the forum. I tried to do it here, but only the direct code is displayed. Do QB have a way to do this?

This is an example of a HTML code from youtube:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FQFOUJn6S6U" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I'm going to let someone more knowledgeable about this give their input. I know some have attached [like attaching a pic] a link to a YouTube, but the only ones allowed are those you have made yourself when it is needed to show/clarify something of yours. Personally, I don't like videos that play automatically when they come on my screen. And many of our members have slow internet service - so that is not a good choice here.

in addition to QuiltnNan's answer, the following applies:

the same rule applies to videos that applies to images and other files.

any videos posted here must be uploaded to the QB.

What you can probably do is add a link to your home page in your profile so it shows when you make posts.

Thanks for the answers. Then I do not need to try doing that. You can add links, so I suppose it is in order to show a text link to a YouTube video, that explains a sewing issue.
