Status of youtube embeds

hi there i enjoyed trying out this platform but when i tried out embedding youtube there were some issues with responsive design. i had tried width=100% but it didn’t seem to be the best solution as it makes a small video on desktop.

i was wondering if there is another way to embed media on write.as in a user-friendly way that will also be mobile responsive?

It seems to work just fine even in mobile view on this one. All I do is just paste the link to the video. I was trying to upload a screenshot but it wouldn’t let me. So just head over to the site and enable browser dev tools and turn on mobile view.

In my other blog, I would actually copy and paste the embed code from YouTube itself, but I have specific responsive CSS for that one.

Hi dino, that is what i’m looking for - to be able to just post a link and it turns into a video like how substack works. but in my case i paste a link to youtube, and it just renders as a link on the front end of the post.

Are you using Write.as or WriteFreely? I believe the auto embedding with just a YouTube link is only a Write.as feature.
