WebM support?

Postby Batandy » Tue Jul 18, 2017 4:02 pm

Hey, i was wondering if WebM support was a possibility for this forum, it would really benefit all the modders who want to show their stuff without having to make Youtube videos.

If it can't be done with an [img] tag, then the security implications of this would be too great. If there is a way to embed from alternate video hosts other than Youtube I am willing to consider it, but just raw linking of any old thing is not something I am willing to do.

Maybe consideration for Streamable as an embeddable video option? It's lighter-weight than Youtube and very useful for short clips as opposed to "full" content.

Yeah that can be considered.

What's the difference between the two?

What Caligari is proposing is something that points to a fixed site, which is far less prone to abuse.

I still don't know how I feel about the site, itself, though. I have no experience with how they accept/reject file types and what it would mean if I was to point an <iframe> there like with Youtube.

The thing with <iframe>s and <object>s and <media>s is some browsers essentially treat them as essentially the same thing, which means one thing can be loaded as another. And one thing I learned in my data security classes is <iframe>s are by far the easiest attack vector for a malicious site to take over a page. While, technically, they're not supposed to allow that - why risk it? Browsers these days have vulnerabilities like swiss cheese in them - there's no need to help the attacker along in these fronts.

For webm embedding, couldn't you just use a HTML5 <video> tag?

Should this be retagged as [Added] now?
