I know that the xenforo has the youtube media embed support. But apart from youtube does any software has the support for twitter and similar other media embeds? I know being a blog wordpress software has support for various types of the embeds.
How does your forum software supports embeds options?
I think this forum supports a wide variety of platforms. They use a plugin to do that. I know that MyBB supports a variety of platforms. Vanilla certainly has support for YouTube. I do not have a list though.
For any forum software to survive, they will have to at least support YouTube embed. Discourse has support for a variety fo them and even offers link previews. But not sure whether it is a native feature or a plugin.
