    Youtube inlining is already supported, and since the site is much more popular anyway...

    what they're driving at is that we already have that exact setup for the youtube links (which is used considerably more that megavideo by us). Adding clone code to support a different site that likely won't get used as much doesn't seem worth the time to me :x

    also, we have a site feedback forum so that jeb will easily see ideas brought up.

    Good idea. I don't see why we couldn't support more video styles. Not everything is available on youtube. I was actually trying to find a way to imbed one earlier today but instead had to just post the entire link to the thread.

    I'd do what Yizelin said and post this in the suggestions forum though.
