Testing Write.as Fediverse media embeds
Write.as, where this blog is hosted, supports embedding rich media from many social platforms and websites such as YouTube videos and Twitter tweets. It's enough to insert in a post the bare URL of the content to embed, on a line by itself, for Writes.as to render the media.
I wonder whether media embedding works also with Fediverse platforms, so this test post includes some of this content. Let's start with a toot of my Mastodon profile:
Here is the URL of a PeerTube video:
Another option with PeerTube is to insert the HTML video embedding code, as Write.as renders some HTML in Markdown:
Does it work?
After checking out the published post I updated it to report on the embeds.
Write.as doesn't render the URLs of both the toot and the PeerTube video. The HTML embedding code does work, but the rendered video is not responsive and doesn't blend well with the page on mobile.
