Feature request: Embedding media from sites like Pornhub


I had this general idea of embedding stuff from some artists to respect their work and not just “stealing” from them. While for bigger Studios this might be more like advertisement, amateurs aren’t very happy with it. I imagine it’s somehow frustrating to them, to see their media all over the web, most of the time without proper attribution.

I think embedding works particular well with Pornhub content. They have videos (of course), but also GIF both as gif and mp4 format.

I was a Diaspora* user for a few years and embedding pictures worked pretty well with Markdown and e.g. YouTube videos were embedded automatically. I wish something similar would work in Mastodon.
