  •  I missed my chance last week but I"ll try anyway (0+ / 0-)

    with my technical question

    I can't embed any videos anymore except those with the prefix, can't do iframes or scr. This is annoying. To embed videos from youtube I have to select 'use old method' or something like that. I use the most up to date version of Chrome, I switched from IE to be able to embed videos but I can't anymore, is DKos becoming a dinosaur?

      We do pretty tightly control the use of iframes, because they can be used to create a number of nasty exploits. That's all done server side by us.

      The next version will be a little cleverer about how we handle this.

      •  OK let me rephrase the question. How do I embed (0+ / 0-)

        videos with anything other than the ancient 'object' html thing or whatever it is in the first 'word'. ?

          it may be a couple of hours before I get back to you but we're kibitzing behind the scenes to see if there's something we can do here.
