Added video thumbnail of YouTube links in Dropbox Paper

Added video thumbnail of YouTube links in Dropbox Paper

Hi, I would like it if when I insert a YouTube link on the Paper page, in addition to the link, an image of the video would appear below as Google Keep. Thanks in advance

|Hi @DenisRe, this is already the normal behavior on Dropbox Paper. 

 

Attaching a normal Youtube link has the video thumbnail on the page added automatically.

 

Are you not experiencing this in your Paper documents by default?

HI @Jay , I tested my feature request better, adding a preview on Youtube links in Dropbox Paper (on the website via PC).

Yes, only videos shared normally via YouTube with the specific shortened link would work on Dropbox Paper.

 

There would be too many possibilities to preview other videos on the YouTube site using different URLs.
