    I think the embed is fine as it is, we can already poll with bots, buttons wont be needed as they may be malicious. The embed system is just as good as it is.

    Poll support - ❌
    Multiple image post support - ❌
    Easy playing of GIFs & videos - ❌

    Please. We beg of you...fix these.

    When sending a share link from, which appears in the format and provides a preview on apps such as IMessage, discord does not offer a title and thumbnail preview for the embedded videos. This site mostly aggregates from YouTube, and the share links are embedded with standard social sharing features, so I’m not sure why discord isn’t displaying it. Thank you!

    Absolutely. For now I resort to posting the URL to both the page and the image. Which is annoying because people still have to click-through to know who made it. Moreover Art Station embeds just fine.

    Also annoying when trying to share a video from twitter and people are forced to go to twitter to play the video. A YouTube style embed for tweets containing videos would be greatly appreciated.

    When (for example) an issue is opened with an image embedded in it (using the ![image](imglink) syntax) process the GitHub markdown and show the image in the embed instead of (or as well as) showing !image as a link.

    Support embedding of multimedia from more web sources and file formats, such as Dailymotion or Nico Nico Douga, and .swf files.

    Perhaps embed uploaded video and audio files? Nobody wants to download these before using them, for multiple reasons.

    Agreed! It'd make it so much more convenient of those previews were back :(

    Going to spread this in hopes it'll get more votes!

    Came here to suggest that exact thing. Probably should extend it to several popular sites as well, like tumblr and imgur galleries.

    I've had people completely miss so many jokes because of this.

    Preview multiple twitter images embedded in a tweet instead of just one.
    Or at least put an alert that the tweet itself has more than one pic.

    Currently when you don't direct link Instagram pictures but merely link to an Instagram post, only a small image and the text from the post will show. This could easily be improved on.

    Currently it is very awesome how Twitter posts are embedded and how in general embedded previews work.

    Though DeviantArt is a cornerstone of many fantasy communities, the links of and normal DeviantArt full-length links doesn't seem to work in Discord. The link is there, but no embed is generated, at all.

    The only way to link is to direct-link the image, but that is problematic from the artist's perspective, as it will only show the image, not its description, not the profile, not the related art (won't increase the view count, etc.)

    Even a simple fix like "X images" after the text so that people know that there are hey, 5 images here and discord is only showing 1. Ideally, a slideshow viewer will be added so you can flip forward/backward through a set at will.
