How to send YouTube video in WhatsApp and play it “inline” within the conversation?

How do I send a YouTube video in WhatsApp and play it “inline” within a conversation? WhatsApp normally formats this as plain-text link which requires the browser to play out of WhatsApp.

Is there a way to play it inline within the conversation in WhatsApp with a preview image and play button? If not, is there an easy work around to send a YouTube video to play it within WhatsApp?

    Alternatively is there an app to easily download a youtube video to share on whatsapp?

      Dear Expert , The app does exactly the opposite. It converts even a direct video upload into a link to play outside in browser or video player
