I've added a new feature that allows you to embed video, audio and images from many popular sites into the forum (finally!)

Any new post that contains a youtube link, spotify link, tweet url, instagram link, (and a few others I forget) should automatically embed the contents of that into yoru post

It will only work on new posts - it can't go back and re-parse old ones but any links to youtube, instagram etc you post from now on should get automatically expanded
