Thanks for the report, @c9charity. However, this does not sound like a BuddyPress issue. We piggyback off of WordPress' native oEmbed functionality to achieve rich embeds.

I'm guessing when you try pasting a link in a WordPress post, that it will also not display the embed either. If it does, let us know and we'll reopen this issue.
