Why can't we embed videos?

Because that would be fun

I'm fairly sure you'd have to do it such that you have to support each site you want to embed- if you're just allowed to post embedding links, it's kinda.. vulnerable sometimes. I'd like to see at least youtube supported, and nicovideo.jp

I doubt niconico will fly though :lol:

I think it screws up the site because millions of people click on Youtube videos and it makes the site go slow. I'm not sure if that's going to apply on here but that's what happened on a previous board I was on.

afaik,

Embedding youtube videos would make them load from youtube, not this site; so it would not slow this site down, as a whole, significantly. Of course, if a video is posted the frame and shit would have to be loaded still, but the data for the doesn't come from this site. You aren't hosting the video here. , so minllions of people clicking a youtube video would not make the forum die

afaik

Yeah I know, though it takes up the forum's bandwidth regardless of it being hosted on a different website. We would have a million visitors at once just by embedding a video, it's crazy but it's true. Though I think you could set up a mod to avoid this problem. I never ran a message board, just knew a few people who did. :tongue2:
