Auto-embed preview for required links

I love how YouTube videos auto-embed to show a preview in "content" blocks in lessons. But if I want to require students to click a link to a YouTube video, I need to add it as a separate lesson element (add link). But as a required link, the YouTube video thumbnail and player does not show—only the link text and link (which takes them to the video in a new tab). Is there a way for Populi to recognize YouTube videos in required links, and auto-embed the video (it would be aesthetically nice, and would allow students to play the required video inside of the Populi lesson instead of going to the external site)? OR, can embedded links in "content" blocks have an option for requiring students to play the embedded video?
