The ETS2/ATS News & Updates section automatically posts new blog posts as new threads. Text and images transfer across fine, but YouTube and Steam embeds do not.

The most recent blog post (at time of writing) has a YouTube embed between the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs, and a Steam embed after the 3rd. They are not present in the thread that was automatically posted.

When the RSS feed is imported the raw HTML is converted to BB code and then posted as-is, and therefore the link that would usually trigger an embed to be inserted isn't there.

There's more info here: Lack of interest - URLs Not Parsed in Feeds Importer

Going to leave this here, but there's unlikely to be a fix anytime soon.

Due to the limited cases whereby this will be reproduced, going to mark this as won't fix.
