Is it possible to implement a similar function on the forum? Currently there's only the url bbcode to link to YouTube (or any platform that isn't Twitter).

it is possible -- there's a [flash] tag that was deliberately disabled, because flash, and also because the video is always embedded. The same is true of all the ways to add a [youtube] tag that a quick search will reveal.

The ideal behaviour would be like the way that 4chan does it -- having a text fragment that gives a thumbnail preview on hover and embeds the video only when clicked. I just have to get around to the reverse-engineering required.

Personally, I would prefer the way discord (or a bunch of websites for that matter) handle it, having the thumbnail embedded with a play option below the message
