Because “Show Full Post” doesn’t include embedded videos I have been replying to BoingBoing posts here on the BBS with a link and an embed as I’ve run across them in the last few months. This isn’t a great solution - I’m not on the BBS all the time and so lots of videos get missed.
I understand that “Show Full Post” is based on a readability algorithm that’s designed to remove videos to improve the readability of the featured text, but because so much content here at BoingBoing features video it tends to fall flat. Since we’re unlikely to see any changes to the readability algorithm (Nope, I’ve said it so much it’s stopped looking like a word. I’m calling it the Al Gore rhythm from now on.) I’m wondering if there’s a way to automate the posting of the video links instead of relying on me being around at the right time. Perhaps the generic @boingboing user can post the video link as the first reply to any new topic containing embedded video.
