HTML5 media embed
We've talked about this:
Now redmatrix can do that.
Is it a good idea to look as it redmatrix does and make in Diaspora?
This seems to me a very imporant business, I have no knowledge of code enough to put my hands, is there anything I can do?
Do you think that this is a priority for diaspora?
How complicated is it?

Use the link syntax for embedding Closed Mon 12 Oct 2015
Though it would be technically the easiest, I don't think we should accept this proposal, because we don't have anything close to consensus.

With the link syntax a markdown output will look clear even if used with software, which don't have an idea about embedding.

Steffen++, but I sometimes wish to have more control when diaspora embeds something. Sometimes I want to post just the link or embed the second link... this would need more work. :)

Implement two syntax types with a different effect Closed Mon 26 Oct 2015
Since we have a discussion concerning a place for an embed, I'd like to suggest the following.
How about implementing both syntax types simultaneously, but make them produce a different effect?
If a user use the link syntax
(), then we embed in the way it does with youtube - to the end of the post. If the image syntax
!() is used, then we embed it in-place, like we do for images.
I remind you, that CommonMark still don't have any standards about html5 media embedding, so an alternative for this proposal is to wait while they release a standard.

As long as
() still produces a link, I don't see any problem to also embed it at the end of the post.
If we don't want to implement a syntax which will possibly change, then maybe
!() can wait for CommonMark.
