I know the concept of facebook integration into Obox has been brought up before, but the world of video hosting has changed a little since that discussion, so I wanted to raise this very specific question:
With Facebook Video becoming a heavy hitter in the content hosting world, is there any way we can get facebook video support in Obox?
The counter points to facebook integration in the past discussions were
I also like how this video is completely ripped off from Mythbusters and reposted with zero attribution, and an overlay from this “Dima Koslowski” person.
Ug. The irony here is even greater - While writing that post, I was having a discussion about how bad Facebook video content is getting for piracy/freebooting, and was using that link as an example. The link I meant to paste into this post was from Tasty(Buzzfeed), which brings in over 2 billion views each month on it’s facebook exclusive content.
The ironic part is that this is a perfect example of why the embedded video link would be so useful, as I would have caught that I pasted the wrong link.
The stats coming out from the media world right now show the exclusive content developers on Facebook (like Buzzfeed, Unilad, the LAD Bible) are surpassing youtube numbers and blowing broadcast channels away. Of course, these are all fuzzy apples and bananas stats, but to me it’s worth raising the importance of media integration, as opposed to dismissing it outright.
Still true. I pressed “embed video” link and I got a login wall. There’s no standard video URL here to work with on that page.
@codinghorror So, given the above importance of media integration from FB, i want to poke a little further for clarity (and please forgive my naivety). If I understand you correctly, even though I’m able to view the video without logging in, the act of integrating into the Obox for previewing requires access to the embed code, which Facebook doesn’t allow unsecured access to. Is that correct? Are there any other ways around this?
It’s not quite a duplicate- that post was targeting all potential Facebook embeds, and meandered across a few too many subjects and solutions that don’t work. I was trying to start a more targeted discussion with this post.
No I meant for Discourse. Does it come out of the box?
I feel very embarrassed, I’m usually pretty good with these stuff but I have no clue what I’m supposed to do I installed a stock Discourse running in a container, and I would like people to be able to embed facebook videos, all I see is the link to the video when I paste it on a new post.
