Last month, Yahoo announced a new Rich Link Previews feature for their desktop webmail. Rich Link Preview is a feature in Yahoo's webmail editor that adds a preview of a link you paste. But this new version has a feature regarding videos that caught my attention :

Today, we’ve enhanced the feature on desktop, such that now you can play video and audio right in the email, and share the link directly to your social networks.

Preview Video & Audio: Play video or audio content right within your email. Try YouTube, SoundCloud, Tumblr, Vimeo and more.

If this feature generated by Yahoo enables Video previews right within the webmail, this mean there should be some code or class names we can reuse to make video preview from our own email campaigns. I'm in France so I still have the old link preview feature which doesn't support video playback. But I'll definitely be interested to see what's the code generated by Yahoo for this.

Anyone tried it yet ?
