New mod for video embedding?
« on: August 24, 2014, 11:50:27 AM »
The mod we're using to embed videos...

 - ...doesn't support https:// URLs.
 - ...uses outdated code to embed videos. For example, if YouTube videos were embedded using the method recommended by Google a lot of them would work on phones and tablets.
 - ...was abandoned three years ago: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/?mod=977

I think we should switch to something that's actively maintained.

Simple Audio Video Embedder looks like a good candidate:

It seems to work pretty well:

The second video is 1) the first result for "Vimeo Pizza" 2) not safe for work. That's an... interesting.... kneading technique.
