Facebook NOT embedding YouTube anymore?

Recently I noticed that when I post YouTube links to Facebook via automated third party or even on Facebook, the YouTube content appears as a text description with thumbnail instead of a video...

This is happening on Facebook pages, not in my personal timeline, yet!

Just wondering if it's a setting thing or if anyone has found a way around this...

Yep, noticed that too... hope it's not permanent, kinda liked getting better engagement with the video play youtube prompt...

I also noticed this but I hope they will bring back the past.

From what I have observed recently, Facebook is trying to prevent posting of external links on the social media. Even some other links and not just YouTube links are not allowed any more. I don't know the reason for this but I think it's probably a block against spam.

I have noticed that too, i tried embedding my video on my Facebook page but on the link appears. I ended up messaging my followers to the link and my you tube channel.
