There have been a handful updates to embedding and file uploads:

  • mp4 files can now be uploaded
  • YouTube shorts links can now be embedded
  • TikTok links can now be embedded, but only using the long form of the URL (e.g. https://www.tiktok.com/@user/video/123456789012345)

In some cases, browsers with strict privacy settings will not allow TikToks to embed. This is not specific to this site, but a limitation of TikTok embedding in general. If you see a message indicating that an embed is not available, that is the most likely cause. As a fallback, in those cases the thumbnail will link to the video on the TikTok website instead of embedding it

Apologies for the site being unavailable for a few hours, our host had networking issues that they have now been able to resolve.

There have been a few small updates:

File uploads/embedding

  • .wepb files can now be uploaded. This also fixes some lingering "failed to resize image" errors, which were from files that were encoded as webp but had the .png extension
  • YouTube live videos can now be embedded
  • Fixed issue where TikToks that do not embed due to browser privacy settings were not correctly linking to the video on TikTok
  • Query strings are now stripped from embed URLs, which should mean that anons who are too retarded to remove them will now be able to embed videos
  • File upload window is filtered to show accepted file formats only by default

The site

  • Lazy loading added to images to improve page load performance
  • Issue with new banners not displaying has been fixed, and new banners have been added

Behind the scenes

  • A new way to automatically detect and ban known CSAM has been implemented. Between this and other measures that have previously been added, less than 1 in 5 attempts to post CSAM succeed

Small update that should curb the CSAM link spamming in /pt/. Since their image posts are no longer getting through, they've resorted to this instead.
