OH COME ON why can't Mastodon preview oEmbed via YouTube? Will happily PR?? #mastodev

@anna Not for me, weird. I specifically chose YT over Spotify because of oEmbed issues. I wonder if it's a local client issue with oEmbed? Good to know it works elsewhere! 💚

@andi graph previews are generated by the instance you read it from. its done in a low priority queue so it doesnt always show up right away. also its a mastodon-only feature, pleroma doesnt implement it afaik.

@anna That's really interesting. I kinda get why it doesn't let random sites drop media/scripts into the TL via oEmbed but doing a local copy seems really weird...

@andi yeah its generated locally, which makes sense for the reasons outlined
