K599 added a comment to T5590: Extension Re-review Request: EmbedVideo.

Please take a look on this extention again. It has a better functionality from other established video extentions. No any installed extention on wiki can provide a control for start time and end time, plus easier to inseart it in article. Thank you in advance.

K599 added a comment to T6840: Have topmost donation banner as image instead of text, because search engines are showing this text as snippet.

I think this would just need an edit to the CentralNotice, which is where the banner comes from.

K599 added a comment to T6634: Requesting EmbedVideo.

@Universal_Omega I personally think we should consider this extension either in addition to the Video extension, or instead of. I would just note that Video is a beta extension; this is a stable extension, according to MediaWiki.org. As well, the way this extension is developed is simpler from the perspective to potentially adding additional video or other audio sources upstream in the future, which is something we definitely need to do with no Widgets extension. So I think we should reopen this task, and perhaps just pause it as stalled for now?

If it allows you to embed raw html, you can ask a million times but that would be a significant security risk and one that I'm not sure we'd be willing to accept. Universal Omega has said he'll speak to Southparkfan who can choose to review if he so wishes but until then it remains declined.

While I understand that people are busy, could you give some clarification on why the task is declined?

It was previously declined (in T338). I'm inclined to agree with the original outcome of the review, that it should be declined for security reasons. I don't believe we need anymore extensions that embed stuff, as that only increases the risk that we could have have security vulnerabilities. We already have the TimedMediaHandler, YouTube, or Video extension which may provide an alternative. Again, I apologize.

K599 reopened T5590: Extension Re-review Request: EmbedVideo as "Open".

Thanks for the clarification. Having looked at the documentation, I'd like to also request EmbedVideo. EmbedVideo has some additional features that neither the YouTube nor Video extensions seem to have, including support for more video services and being able to use URL arguments, so I don't think Video would be sufficient.

Reopening as Universal Omega seemed to be responding to Helper, who is not the original requester.
