Thumbnails and preview text not working for youtube links (on some instances)

Hi blahaj folks,

I've noticed that new posts containing YouTube links no longer import the video thumbnail or appropriate text from the destination link.

The problem seems to be occurring and ongoing on some instances (blahaj, beehaw, lemmy.ml), while other instances seem to be working just fine (lemmy.sdf.org, ukfli.uk).

I found this post in the Lemmy Support community that mentions the problem, including references to the working and non-working instances. One comment suggests that it may be a problem with a German cloud provider called Hetzner (which may explain why the preview text of each YouTube link appears to be in German).

Youtube links pull in odd information, and no thumbnails.
  • Do you have any additional info on this Hetzner problem/fix, or perhaps a link to the admin community or discussion thread where they were discussing it?

    I'd like to be able to point my instance's admin there (as we're seeing the same problem on both lemmy.blahaj.org and beehaw.org).

    Thanks!

  • Harpy rule
  • I’m getting 50% Dr. Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture vibes.

  • Male feelings
  • Speaking and sharing what you’re going through rarely fixes problems, but it does help as…

    1. a moderate pressure release for you, by simply letting the frustration loose can help relieve the stress of hiding the emotions and behaviors,

    2. gives people around you context to your (likely noticeably) different behavior along with the opportunity to offer support, guidance or material help, and

    3. either speaking or writing an unformed idea that’s vexing you has a finite benefit by taking a fluid, nebulous, unwieldy feeling and capturing it in amber, pinning it down to something that can be refined, examined and (hopefully) mitigated.

    For more on this third point, see this article on how one can use writing as a thinking exercise, helping refine and distill ideas into more-satisfying understood truths.

    A common talking point seems to be that this is just a wishlist, not actual policy, though high percentages of the recommendations (2/3rds) DO end up as policy.

  • Girl You Know it's True (2024, dir Simon Verhoeven)
  • I'm in the US, so I'm making my "has it been released?" judgements with the US market in mind. TMDB says it's a German production, so I could certainly imagine it having received distribution in the EU and UK before over here.

  • Jimmy Carrr gives BRUTALLY truthful answer on cancel culture
  • Some select quotes:

    Respectability is a prison and the gates are open and people are desperate to be inside.

    You can criticize ideas, but you cancel people. And I think the cancel culture thing... I think it's the new book burning.

    Another friend of mine went, "You need to just right-size this." (...) She said, "What's happened here? You told a joke and some people didn't like it. That's what happened." It didn't seem like that big a deal when you put it like that. And yet, in the moment, sometimes it feels catastrophic.

    You can't have an easy life and a great character.

    All of these quotes are in reference to general ideas so far as I can tell -- the overall concepts of respectability and "cancel culture", not specific instances. And I think the interview missed a huge opportunity to dig deeper on these ideas by citing specific examples to start picking at those broad takes.

    Cancel culture applies to people who make choices that hurt others and are unrepentant about it. It's not about the choices; we all fuck up from time to time. It's about the lack of remorse. That's what speaks to a person's true nature. And if a person's true nature leads them to unapologetically hurt people, then they're a piece of shit person and I'm justified in wanting nothing to do with them.

  • Audiences Want More Independent Cinemas, According to Art House Convergence Study
  • Cinerama was purchased by SIFF (now dreadfully renamed "SIFF Cinema Downtown"), which is basically a local chain now (along with SIFF Cinema Uptown, SIFF Cinema Egyptian and the SIFF Film Center).

    As for true independents around here, you've got the Grand Illusion, the Beacon, the Ark Lodge, Northwest Film Forum and, of course, the Majestic Bay up in Ballard.

  • Audiences Want More Independent Cinemas, According to Art House Convergence Study
  • It depends.

    I'm in Seattle, which you would expect to be a pretty popular spot for independently run cinemas, but my local (a 4-auditorium theater) is teetering on the edge of closing due to high rent and low attendance. I saw Inside Out 2 there on a weekend evening and the entire house only had only about a dozen people in it.

    Meanwhile, a few blocks down the street, a tiny independent cinema with one auditorium that seats ~70 and generally only runs older and niche films seems to be doing kinda-ok.

    The cinema marketplace is changing really fast compared to even 10 years ago and there are sadly going to be some casualties.

    Ultimately i think we're going to get back to movie houses with one to three auditoriums, and with a wide range of uses: movies, streamed live performances, television premieres and finales, away-game playoff sports, as well as a healthy usage as rental space for public meetings for reasonable rates.

    In that scenario, fuck yes Mexico would be justified in finding allies to help them maintain sovereignty and protect themselves.

    That’s what happens when nations invade one another.
