Hi. Have you tried YouTube or TimedMediaHandler?

I have, those ones don't work for what I need.

Something to add videos from links. And make them work like normal files. I mainly just need it to work for YouTube. But the YouTube extensions dimensions don't seem to always work, timedmediahandeler needs to upload them, and I use the widget extension at the moment, but similar issue to YouTube one. Extension:Video is very convenient by adding Special:AddVideo and Special:NewVideos. It's exactly what I was looking for.

Extension:Video would almost certainly not pass security review. The extension documentation page has a big red warning banner on it that says not to use it in a production system, which Miraheze is. Additionally, the latest stable version is from 2017 and therefore out-of-date.

I'll message the developer

Additionally, the latest stable version is from 2017 and therefore out-of-date.

The docs are outdated. Please review the actual code as well.

RhinosF1 moved this task from Backlog to Review Needed on the Extensions board.

Popping in the review queue per my chat with the dev but stalling on 1.35

It's not perfect and could do with a bit of work but it might be worth a look.
