Since I apparently just nuked the other thread, starting a new one :picard:

Starting today, you can now easily embed Instagram, Vine, Facebook and Twitter posts / vids on the site...its as easy as posting a link, thats it. Post link, site will convert it. If you post a link using quick reply, you'll need to refresh thread to see it in action.

See examples below:

The auto fit to the size of your screen. I can set a defined width. Try on your phone, they (mostly) shrink down. Mostly.

Set to 800 width. Hows that?

You can always go full screen for vids.
