Embedding Reddit Videos

Let me try…

Edit: No, it didn’t work.

For reference, this is the code I posted above:

<iframe id="reddit-embed" src="https://www.redditmedia.com/r/aww/comments/spe4x8/a_german_shepherd_got_put_in_another_room_while/?ref_source=embed&amp;ref=share&amp;embed=true" sandbox="allow-scripts allow-same-origin allow-popups" style="border: none;" height="638" width="640" scrolling="no"></iframe>

I think Discourse doesn’t work with iframe embedded videos. @tempogain do you know something about it?

Oh well - I thought I’d done that successfully before (e.g. in the dog and piano post earlier in that thread), but maybe I’m misremembering. That dog & piano post currently opens to Reddit on both my computer (Safari) and iPhone.

Just post the url. It will embed automatically.

You can link to video directly, but reddit separates video and audio. So it will have no sound.



That’s what I regularly do with Twitter, and have done a handful of times with Reddit. But with Twitter links, the embedded video can play “inside” forumosa, without opening a new window. The Reddit links currently do the annoying thing of opening a new window. Maybe they’ve always done that with Reddit, but I hadn’t noticed until today.

Discourse has a setup to allow that for Twitter.

And not for Reddit?

I don’t think so. There’s this topic
