Did the media embed button/function used to support Facebook video? Is that not a thing anymore, or a conscious decision, or what? Occasionally there's a FB video that isn't total garbage... and maybe that video isn't on YouTube or wherever.

EDIT: nor is IG. Or Imgur. Or other stuff, so maybe it's on purpose?

I disabled some because people were complaining, after the upgrade, that they couldn't just paste a normal link - the forum software was creating a media embed for it. I'm not sure there's a happy medium, here, but I'll look.

Shirley there's a setting to not auto-create media embeds, and only display them when explicitly created.

But also, meh. I don't have a strong opinion on it, really.
