Media player extension

Hi,
I installed an extension to the board, which now allows you to add a "[media]" keyword to directly embed videos in your message.

Here is an example:


This uses

Code: Select all

[media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6nYpGEe4lM[/media]

Great addition!

Is there a way to include videos in a collapsed form by default so that they do not take too much space on the post?
It could show the URL first, then expand when clicked upon, ideally with a way to collapse it again.

The English Amiga Board has such a feature and it is really nice.
