Youtube embed in email newsletter

Any ideas on how I can work with the Hugo Youtube embed and my email newsletter?

Most mail clients cant handle embedded video. They will just strip them away. When sharing videos you have to link to them for your subscriber to watch in their browser.

You could do this manually in the original blog post. Linking to the video instead of embedding. Or maybe @manton wants to do some magic in his end, to automaticly identify video embeds and handle them in a way similar to how MailChimp does it.

To add to this, I think we need to find a way to process Hugo tags for newsletters. I’ll be looking into this.
