Any plans to support YouTube Videos? (Features)
So I'm not advocating removing the 'flash' button …
I do! Flash is a dead technique. More and more browsers remove the flash plugin or require a button click from the visitor to activate the plugin at least.
… but what I would like to know is what the 'flash' button was for though?
It was introduced, mainly to embed videos. At that time Flash was the common way to do this.
I mean if I click the 'flash' button on this site it asks for a flash url, without the YouTube hack what url are you meant to put in this box?
I thoght, I was verbose enough, when I showed the URLs for embedding, Youtube and Vimeo provided to me. I described the actual status how the video providers offers their way of embedding and what I think we have to do, to support it.
I just don't understand what the purpose of the 'flash' button was for?
