    We being mods, that is.

    Would any forums specifically benefit from this?

    I have limited downloads, why should i have to load the rest of youtubes crap. the frame is still smaller on average for me.

    I also find that when you have links to vids, you end up with heaps heaps of tabs in ur browser.

    Also, mobile devices aren't that slow, I gte 8Mb/s wirelessly at home, and at uni/work, I get 10Gb/s wirelessly (technology won't be available to the public for a while though)

    I would say news threads like those in The Real World would see use from this.

    I'm neutral on this, because, like DCM said, it's not something we need, but it wouldn't really hurt unless it's being abused.
    There'd be the matter of copyright infringements, but that can be averted with official YouTube channels, can't it?

    EDIT: To further clarify, I mean that it wouldn't be bad if it was restricted to certain parts of the forum to avoid abuse.

    DOWN

    I don't see normal users really benefiting from it and it would be abused. Plus it makes pages load SO slow. The lag is bad enough as it is.

    Down. This will only cause more lag, and links are fine just as it is. It also doesn't benefit the forum in anyway.

    Even though it might be handy, I can't see why linking isn't so hard...

    You can just put a link to the video and it will lag the forums I think.

    I vote DOWN for most of the reasons already stated, chief among them being the increased lag.

    I'm gonna have to say DOWN. Linking to videos should be good enough.

    I am however, going to vote this idea DOWN. Honestly I think there would be issues with copyright, spam and advertising. I can already see some new users trying to post episodes into the animé threads, just to get their channel seen. Links to "funny" videos akin to memes in posts. Spambots going to a new level of advertising with videos. I think it would be a lot of work for the moderators having to view the videos to check if they don't break any rules as well.
    How is that actually any different from people just posting the link to illegal videos, which is already against forum rules?

    And its embedding youtube videos, how far do you think spambots are going to go posting their own advertisements on youtube just to embed it on a forum?

    As for meme-videos, how is enforcing that any different from enforcing regular spam rules?

    Seriously, what will these videos be used for?
    I can see a use for them in the blog section, which is what I am voting this for: UP (for blogs) There's been a few times I wanted to post a video in my blog.

    At least for blogs, its not really going to slow down the majority of user's forum experience unless they are viewing that blog.

    What was the purpose of increasing avatar sizes for everyone? What's the point of having a drop-down allowing people to show their favourite badges? That was just a nice little addition as well. Also what's the purpose of allowing every single user to change their name every week? That too is a luxury that doesn't really serve a purpose. There have been many things on this development forum alone that's been approved that one can right off as an addition because "it would be nice". There are legitimate reasons to not implement this, I don't see how this is one when "because its nice" has been a good enough reason for other features.

    You know, I am wondering why people think that enabling this would suddenly cause an upsurge of people using this feature everywhere. It's not as if people spam pictures in every post possible, and aside from a Youtube version of "Random Images" threads, I'd say a person randomly slowing down the forum would be isolated incidences.
