To help ignite community content for new and growing Forem's I thought it would be a good idea to explore the idea of having YouTube links auto-generate cover photos with one-touch play.
The way I see this working from a content creation perspective is like this:
Community member hits 'submit content' (or something like that.. a replacement for write post).
Member then gets an option to write a post or share a link.
'Write a post' continues as normal, 'Share a link' caters for a youtube link and title/description, once inserted the cover image is replaced with the cover image of the youtube video. The video then plays inline or it can pop out.
I feel this would be a good initial step to replacing the current video upload feature and at the same time facilitate content creation with smaller communities.
