Q: How can I request a new site to be added?
A: New additions are focused on popular and trending sites. If you know of a particularly popular site whose content can be embedded, you can inquire about it in the discussion thread. Don't forget to include an example of a URL whose content can be embedded. Alternatively, you may start a conversation with me if you want to sponsor the addition of a site or the creation of a custom add-on.

Q: Is it compatible with the s9e Media BBCodes pack from XenForo 1.5?
A: Yes, this add-on is 100% compatible with media embedded via the s9e Media BBCodes pack on XenForo 1.5.

Q: How do I upgrade from XenForo 1.5?
A: The simplest way is to uninstall the s9e Media BBCodes pack from XenForo 1.5, then upgrade to XenForo 2.x and install this add-on.

Q: Does this add-on replace the default media sites?
A: Yes, it replaces several of XenForo 2.0 media sites such as Twitter or YouTube. The new versions of those media sites are backward compatible, with the exception of Tumblr posts which may need to be re-embedded to work.

Q: Are the embeds responsive and how can I change their size?
A: All the embeds are responsive and will scale down with the screen size. Most video players are limited to 640 × 360 to avoid taking up the entire screen on desktop browsers. You can change their size in CSS. For instance, if you want YouTube videos to be displayed in 1280 × 720 you can add the following to your extra.less template:
CSS:
[data-s9e-mediaembed="youtube"] { max-width: 1280px !important; }
Q: I don't want to install all of those sites, what can I do?
A: First off, if you're worried about performance, don't be. A hundred of media sites only add a few milliseconds to the time it takes to send a new post. With that said, you can permanently disable a media site in your admin panel, in the Content section under BB code media sites.

Q: There used to be an option to speed up threads with many videos, where did it go?
A: The add-on is designed to defer loading embeds until they are displayed on screen. This is generally referred to as lazy loading and it is turned on by default.

Q: What is https://s9e.github.io and how is it used?
A: It has become a popular pattern among social websites such as Facebook and Twitter to provide embeddable content not in the form of an iframe but as JavaScript. There are several issues with this approach; Firstly, some of them only work during the initial page load and not in the post's preview. Secondly, it gives the third party content providers complete control over the current page. To sidestep those issues, this add-on uses a separate iframe that acts as a sandbox. This iframe is hosted on GitHub as a small (<1 KB) static HTML file. You can view an example of it on this page.
