Cool video, but question about how BoingBoing is now formatting YouTube video display: are you doing something to obscure the YouTube controls? I didn’t notice this on Friday (2020/09/18), so it seems a recent change. It’s consistent between Chrome and Firefox, so it’s also not a browser quirk.
Let’s just stipulate that I’m omitting the expletives right now (assume three per sentence, because I’m somewhat unhappy). This embedded video formatting is extremely irritating. I can’t adjust video volume, and videos have wildly varying volumes, so that’s annoying. I also can’t adjust video speed, and I doubt if I’m the only reader who routinely sets his videos at 2x. I also can’t automatically get to the video on YouTube, and sometimes I want to read YouTube comments (yes, I know, this is often a very bad idea).
Maybe there’s a simple trick to obtain these functions now? Otherwise, please revert your formatting.
