You can post the URL and if the formatting addon is there, it will auto embed your video.

Proboards has that option as well to embed a video into the post. I didn't used to use it at first but then saw other forums did so. Question: Do you think people prefer it embedded or to go to the link?

Embedded is a bit more convenient

I prefer embedded. Because I do not like clicking links.

I have to agree, embedded media is far more common in this day and age because it's the user preference overall. People are always skeptical of clicking links nowadays, so embedding works the best.

That makes sense! I hesitate clicking links myself for videos.
