Just a quick post. I meant to share this video a few days ago but somehow didn’t get around to it. Edward Snowden wrote a book called “Permanent Record”. Trevor Noah interviews Edward Snowden about it. As always, with humour.
Of course, fitting to the theme, I tried to embed the YouTube nocookie version for enhanced privacy. Guess what, WordPress doesn’t support that. It really looks like the people behind WordPress don’t care about privacy.
I created an issue related to this https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/17791
I used a custom HTML block, and manually re-embedded the video with youtube-nocookie so now it should be good. I hope WordPress will fix this soon so that such workarounds won’t be needed in the future.
Isn’t this nice… “The uploader has not made this video available in your country.”
