View Full Version : Chiefsplanet Policy Proposal - Imbedded Videos

I would like to propose a policy change here at Chiefsplanet, that we no longer allow imbedded video in any of the threads. I am allowed access to this site at work and use At-Work mode so that images and questionable content donít get me in trouble.

There are a couple of problems with imbedded video. First, the videos themselves tend to use quite a bit of bandwidth. Second, is the fact that sites like YouTube and Google Video are blocked here at work, so every time I hit a thread with an imbedded video, I get flagged. Iíve had no problems yet, but Iím afraid of problems down the road. I have no problem with links to the sites that host those videos and it shouldnít be a big deal for people to click those links if they wish to view the videos.

I know we have a lot of members here who view The Planet from work, so I would imagine there are others that share my concern.I would like to hear othersí opinions on this and then maybe we can put it to a vote to see if this policy can be changed.Thanks for your time.

I don't have issues with worrying about the boss, but it wouldn't bother me.

It's not like it's difficult to clink the link.

My only question is what effect it would have on the small gameclips that gochiefs posts. Are those usually gifs?

I agree as well. I have the very same issues at my work as well. I think just posting the link for videos is probably a better idea. I'm sure you'll get some resistance on this issue however.

It doesn't affect me, but I'd be just fine with that.

I just can't stand the ones that start automatically.

Yeah, those are just attached images. No problemo.

ROFL

I feel your pain, Mr. Iowanian.

I say, down with imbedded vids. Especially the ones that start playing when you open the thread. I've been scared out of my seat on many occasions when that happened.

Oh. And very much especially the ones that feature xylophone playing Japanese children. Those ones are dangerous to your mental stability and emotional health.

Useum Linkum.

I'd like a mod to chime in here and give their thoughts. Is it possible to disable imbedded videos?

How about any thread with a vid gets moved to the Media Center?

Hehe. I'm surprised it took so long for this response.

There are a lot of football threads with videos. I'm not sure that would work. Also, there are a lot of threads that have no video in topic header, but are posted in them later on. Those would be hard to sort out.

See if it works now. There is no "clean" way of doing it, so the output is sort of ugly...

I like embedded videos. However, you guys raise good points. I don't have any issue with a change in policy.

It makes sense in the @work mode, so that is the only place I will do this...

I think the At Work feature can probably be modified to prevent embedded video. That would solve everything.

I don't believe it is a "ban" proposal. Just that the videos are posted as links instead of imbedded in the thread.

Attachment links with maybe a NSFW warning as necessary

That's already a policy but there are still morons.

I could see not having the video or audio that auto plays, it can be annoying. Other than that I agree with Archie F. Swin. Get to work you slackers. If this can be set up to work in @work mode only so be it.

Alright, this should be done in the @work mode now. I cleaned it up as much as the BB sofware would let me. Let me know if there are any issues.

That did it. Thanks for the effort Morphius. :thumb:

I would like to get the naughty vids off of here.



And sent directly to my home address.



Thanks.
