Goal: A user can create a post including any version of a youtube or twitch URL. When the post is created it appears in a repeating group and the link appears as an embedded video. 

Current State: The entire site is already built using a combination of airtable and bubble.io. This is the last feature that I need. 

Work: I am open to ideas. What I know right now is that it can be done either with a Regex Formula or JavaScript Automation using the video id. 

Budget: Hopefully, under $200. But we can discuss it, based on your idea.

And the formula used is:

IF(
  FIND(
    "twitch.tv",
    {Embed Link Examples}
  ),
  "https://clips.twitch.tv/embed?clip=",
  IF(
    OR(
      FIND(
        "youtube.com/",
        {Embed Link Examples}
      ),
      FIND(
        "youtu.be/",
        {Embed Link Examples}
      )
    ),
    "https://www.youtube.com/embed/"
  )
) & 
SUBSTITUTE(
  REGEX_EXTRACT(
    {Embed Link Examples},
    "[^/]*$"
  ),
  "watch?v=",
  ""
)

The only way I can think of doing this involves having a list of the possible URL patterns and just hardcoding it really.  Do you have a list like that?

@TheTimeSavingCo  Hardcoding is what I expected, so that would work for me. Attached is a list of the email examples
