Auto embed video and see snippets of links


Formerly mugtree
When a link is included in a post, is there a way to show a snippet of it, like in FB, or auto embed the youtube video?

Or at least a link preview window addon. So when you hover over a link, you get a preview of that web page.

YouTube videos will generally auto embed if the URL matches a known format.

But for arbitrary link expansion, there's nothing built in that would do that (beyond the title conversion).

The add-on I linked shows show a preview of the web page. I am not aware of any other add-ons similar to the one I linked.

Thanks for help. I meant a little window pops up a shows the website of the link, a bit like the forum discussion preview window pop up thing.
