[Cross-Posting] MediaGoblin

ST Sean Tilley Public Seen by 117

It would be really cool if we could support cross-posting uploaded images to a MediaGoblin instance. Maybe we could set it up so that if a user uploads multiple photos, all of them can be posted to MG as individual pictures, maybe with the same caption?

MediaGoblin acts as an OAuth provider, so we can make an Omniauth strategy to push uploaded photos to the MediaGoblin app.

Here's an overview of uploading media with associated metadata through an API.

Embed videos mediagoblin, I think it would be good and not very hard to do. Upload us any format, there is always a copy webm, can be reproduced with a simple label HTML5 and use a few simple attributes to put some tools.
This would be useful for mediagoblin and other video platforms work the fomratos compatible with html5 video also is useful for host our own videos and play them in Diaspora.

Automatic embedding of mediagoblin videos in Diaspora would be great!

I started a discussion here about enabling users to embed video and audio using the respective html tags.

My opinion is that using html tags for embedding media would be useful, relatively easy, and an important step toward integrating with decentralized media sharing platforms (such as Mediagoblin).
