Can youtube links pull the featured image into Discourse for use when sharing?

I have a lot of users referencing YouTube links to their work, which is great, but when sharing a link to the topic on other social media platforms, they default back to the website’s logo, since there is no image directly associated with the post - would it be possible to pull the featured image from youtube or vimeo?

Here’s a vimeo example:

Here’s the topic on our forum:

As you can see, we also use the image in a topic for the tiles at the top of the forum, so this would double help there :wink:

I just wanted to bump this again - I’d love to get these working if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions!
