Is there support for IFRAME embeds?

I am aware that the software supports sharing youtube/dailymotion, but what about linking to other sites which support iframe embedding?

Here is an example:

<iframe width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" src="https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw" allowfullscreen ></iframe>


Some markdown editors already support iframe embedding so I am wondering if this will work here as well.

I tried with the following markdown code, but this will not parse through the markdown editor here:

[![Titanic with a cat](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kEPfM3jSoBw/maxresdefault.jpg)](https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw "Titanic with a cat")


This is how it looks on my local editor: image

Markdown doesn't support IFrames and the reason why some software do have that function is if HTML is allowed on the markdown editor, we do not have that attached to the markdown editor. Otherwise for your answer, is no we do not support iframes on flatboard Markdown editor.

Also:
[![Titanic with a cat](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kEPfM3jSoBw/maxresdefault.jpg)](https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw "Titanic with a cat")

This just means the link gets embedded into the image.

So the markdown as listed:

[![Titanic with a cat](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kEPfM3jSoBw/maxresdefault.jpg)](https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw "Titanic with a cat")


Should parse correctly for the forum? As I am attempting to do so below this line.

[![Titanic with a cat](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kEPfM3jSoBw/maxresdefault.jpg)](https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw "Titanic with a cat")

It looks like the markdown above will not parse or at least show the image with the embedded link. I guess I may be doing this incorrectly, or at least it's not structured in a way that the MD is understood by the forum software. Is there another way to do this more effectively?

Correct way:

[![Titanic with a cat](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kEPfM3jSoBw/maxresdefault.jpg)](https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw)


Incorrect Way:
[![Titanic with a cat](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kEPfM3jSoBw/maxresdefault.jpg)](https://mega.nz/embed/ANdknJKb#97QHxGirG0TcgiyzE40WqMTEFFjAln0sl7oJlFFhHpw "Titanic with a cat")


the reason is that quotations(title for link) don't work with images as descriptions nor image titles as well.
