@mangeurdenuage How did you get a video preview to show in the timeline?

I added .webm to my post ?
I'm not the admin of this instance nor have the knowledge to do it maybe @xrevan86 can help ?

Indeed, if you want to know something else loadaverage is probably the only instances which doesn't requires JavaScript to work, see the picture. https://loadaverage.org/attachment/4423575

@mangeurdenuage I could see the advantage for someone on a very limited machine. Though I'm not sure it has a huge advantage for most people. In fact the lack of some of the extras JS can provide could be a turn off.

I don't mind if an instances provides JS for users as long as the possibility to use the instances with links.

@mangeurdenuage Thats fair, but thats easily solved by providing a no js theme as an option I'd think, no?

@freemo @mangeurdenuage I didn't do anything special so I think it just works?
Maybe I'm forgetting something, I don't knowโ€ฆ

@xrevan86 @mangeurdenuage hmm so you just post the link and the preview should automatically show up for you?

@freemo Are you looking for link previews or attachments? Those are different things.

@xrevan86 @mangeurdenuage So im going to add a link to a youtube video of mine here, lets see if it shows a preview?


I don't even see your post on the instance you're on that is strange. But from loadaverage I have access to your link, I don't have the preview but I have the link. https://loadaverage.org/attachment/4423690

@mangeurdenuage Where is the source for your instance hosted? Do you know if your working off a modified version of the server maybe?

From what I read it's gnu social 1.2.0-beta5 if they are inclined to do so you should seek help with @pztrn @maiyannah and @xrevan
Here's some documentation (I don't know how up to date it is)
@maiyannah as her own fork called postActiv

@mangeurdenuage @maiyannah Ahh thanks, I just assumed it was mastodon. Perhaps that is why

No problem, Mastodon is one of many softwares that is part of the fediverse.
When I came by two years ago I there was only GS but there's older software than GS. Mastodon came about one year ago.

@mangeurdenuage I am aware, I just didnt think about it at the time. Though I could swear mastodon is older than that, I thought i remember seeing it more than a year ago.

Maybe a year and a few ~ months. GS is a fusion of multiple projects over time it's a decade old.

@mangeurdenuage Well regardless I have no doubt GS is older. With that said I'd love to see a matrix of features that compare the various ActivityPub compliant software. I am running Mastodon for my instance purely because I liked the expiernce the most.

@mangeurdenuage @lain I'm familiar with that as well. I tried out both before deciding to run Mastodon as my instance.
