Over on Meta Stack Exchange, I am attempting to compile a complete list of Stack Exchange sites which support YouTube embedding.

Searching on Android Enthusiasts Meta, I was unable to find any discussion of whether embedded YouTube videos are supported. Because YouTube embedding is not shown in the markdown preview window, there's no way to test without posting publically.

Are embedded YouTube videos supported on Android Enthusiasts?

    Embedding is enabled by request. If it was never even discussed, it's not enabled. I hope you don't plan to post this on 160 metas. – user76613 Aug 1 '17 at 16:53

There's only one way to find out.

See Which sites have YouTube embedding on?

  • So it seems Android.SE was sensitive enough to not enable this? Though it might seem inconvenient, that's good for privacy: every visitor can chose whether to have his/her IP tracked by Google :) – Izzy Aug 1 '17 at 15:38
  • @Izzy I believe YT embedding is disabled on most sites by default, but can be enabled if a site's community specifically requests it. – Stevoisiak Aug 1 '17 at 15:40
  • While that request is mostly ignored, as you found out in the linked post. Never mind, different ideologies (tin foils versus cloud junkies – and some folks "between the lines"). Just wanted to point out both variants have their pros and cons, no "ratings" implied :) – Izzy Aug 1 '17 at 15:44
