New Bloglines Feature: Videos in Feeds

For the past couple of months my greatest annoyance about Bloglines was that it stripped out all <object> and <embed> tags for security reasons. This is fine and good, except that most feeds embed videos using these tags instead of as RSS attachments. Google Reader has supported a whitelist of sites for over a year now. I finally got around to fixing the Bloglines security filter so that videos will show up. Below is the current whitelist. Any <embed> or <object> from these domains will not be stripped:

  • blip.tv
  • blogtv.com
  • blowery.org
  • break.com
  • brightcove.com
  • castfire.com
  • cnet.com
  • cnn.net
  • collegehumor.com
  • dailymotion.com
  • dotsub.com
  • ehow.com
  • google.com
  • gametrailers.com
  • gamevideos.com
  • glumbert.com
  • grouper.com
  • ifilm.com
  • jumpcut.com
  • kontraband.com
  • liveleak.com
  • metacafe.com
  • mobatalk.com

  • singshot.com
  • slideshare.net
  • ustream.tv
  • verycd.com
  • videoegg.com
  • vimeo.com
  • vsocial.com
  • youtube.com

I made this list by asking my co-workers for video sites. If I’m missing something, post a comment and I’ll throw it on the TODO list.

Oh, and the obligatory demonstration of this feature:

When commenting, remember: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?

Go dark.
