Embedded clips - is there ANY chance it might happen?


I'm no expert when it comes to security issues, and I know it's been explained before, but is there any possibilty that embedded clips will ever be an option on runboard?

I understand that it is a money issue too, as it would mean runboard having to host the clips (is that correct?) - but as for the security issues, I have to admit to still not fully understanding. How do so many other forums manage to allow clip embedding, seemingly without any security risks?

Hi Billy,

Just like Runboard doesn't host images other than the ones supplied by Runboard, we wouldn't have to host clips in order to embed those, either.

That said, it is possible to do it without the security risks (for example, would limit it only to youtube videos and nothing else), but like any other feature that can't be accomplished with a hack, it would have to be programmed by Thor.

Please, Thor... pretty please with bells on?

Thanks, L.
