OH COME ON why can't Mastodon preview oEmbed via YouTube? Will happily PR?? #mastodev
@andi I get a preview on my machine?
@BestGirlGrace Is that it? Seems it doesn't leverage oEmbed at all then...
@andi I would imagine it does- it generates OEmbed cards, it just kicks off a Sidekiq task to do it, I believe, and that happens when it happens.
@BestGirlGrace But wait why
Why doesn't it just get a properly sized oEmbed via the oEmbed service??
@andi It's either do it async or every post that contains a link has to make you wait while it goes and crawls the link to generate the card. You can see the crawl workers right here in Sidekiq when I posted something oembeddable.
@BestGirlGrace Ahhhh okay that totes makes sense. Thanks for humouring me!
@andi I had to think about it for a second myself. Follow your dreams!
Don't let the name fool you. All the pornography here is legal, and much of it is hand-written. No fascists, no bigots.
