Auto-Embed for Imgur albums broken
#1
It's been awhile since I've been on here; It looks like a recent update now automatically embeds certain supported media links.
Unfortunately it doesn't seems to work with Imgur albums, and has broken every link to galleries that I have posted:

(I think the gallery that embeds is auto-selected by Imgur for broken links)

Also, even if you can get this working, I think it should be possible to disable per link. Right now it adds a bunch of vertical space that I wanted to avoid by linking to an external site:

If possible, I also think it shouldn't retroactively apply to old posts for the same reason (and to hopefully avoid any broken link situation in the future).
Viewing the site in the latest version of Firefox. Get the same bug in Chrome. Thanks as always for running things around here!

There is definitely something up with how images are handled since the update. I’ve noticed they don’t appear at all on mobile Chrome, and on normal browsers it’s no longer just the image but a whole embedded div

Yes, it looks like whatever embed plugin is being used is overriding the image tag. If I use it with http links, it gets overridden and turned into and embedded div, while https images work correctly.
Code:
[img]http://i.imgur.com/xxxx.jpg[/img] (gets overridden)
[img]https://i.imgur.com/xxxx.jpg[/img] (works as expected)

That's strange! I just double checked my last post that used them, it's using https and still showing as embedded div. Hmm..
