XF 1.5 3rd party template referenced images run through proxy.php ?


Well-known member
For both XF 1.5 and XF 2.1, I've modified the youtube bbcode media template to serve the default youtube image thumbnail rather than load all the script/video assets on initial page load for better page speed.

will only load on forum page load the thumbnail below


But it seems the image url referenced in the bbcode template is just served directly from https://img.youtube.com/*. Is it possible to tell 3rd party images referenced directly in template code to go through proxy.php itself ?

so if bbcode template references
<img loading="lazy" src="https://img.youtube.com/vi/AQqFZ5t8uNc/mqdefault.jpg">
to have it go through and be served via proxy.php

can this be done for XF 1.5 and 2.1 ?
