Video gallery

Mike's Videos System has always been a great app and filled the void but it has to be said that embedding videos with a thumbnail via API into Gallery has been a really popular request for many years and honestly, despite it seemingly being a bit of a no brainer, I still can't believe IPS haven't yet provisioned it. I think the closest we ever got was Matt (years ago) saying it was a good idea and he'd look into it.

Why anyone in modern times would prefer or opt to store potentially huge HD and 4K video files themselves instead of embedding them remotely from a video hosting/streaming specialist like Vimeo, JWPlayer, Brightcove, YouTube etc is almost beyond me, unless of course it was content that would breach the rules of most video hosting providers. If so then I'd recommended to host via cloud hosting instead of local web server storage, especially since SSD based storage is now pretty standard for web-hosting but storage space is still considerably smaller than traditional hard disks. Even animated gifs are better provided by services such as Gippy, Guggy etc.

im not really sick guys if you didnt notice though eye roll GIF

Surely half the work is already done because you can embed video via the text editor content and the video hosting companies make it easy to embed their files on their end.

As in the Youtube clone part? No, it mostly supports embeds from sites like Youtube and Vimeo. And basic html5 video playback but nothing like the self hosted aspect of Youtube.

here the dev is saying its embeds only, so i am totally confused with this statement...

Gallery only accepts raw uploads of movie files, no embeds from Youtube or Vimeo etc
