This extension was previously removed in late 2016 and is now a declined extension due to security reasons. I'm not familiar with the security reasons for it being rejected, but since the extension is actively maintained, I thought maybe the extension may have changed since then. Because of this, I'd like to request a re-review to see if the security concerns are still applicable to the current version of Extension:EmbedVideo.
Reason for Requesting
Currently, outside just using a Widget iframe, Miraheze offers Extension:YouTube for embedding videos from video sharing services. Per T5535, there was discussion about potentially enabling the other video services supported by Extension:YouTube, which were previously commented out in the Miraheze-forked version of the extension. After reviewing though, it seems like most of the video services supported by Extension:YouTube either don't work or are dead, and while it's not an ask, I figured maybe an alternative extension could be looked for.
Extension:EmbedVideo has larger video service support (24+ services) and is also actively maintained in keeping that support working and up-to-date (Last update a month ago). It seems to be a relatively common extension requested as well, so if the security concerns have been remedied, then I believe the extension would be a boon for editors looking for additional embedded video support without needing to go the Widget route.
Thank you for your time!
