Allow iframe embeds

Allow iframe embeds

Short, concise description of the idea
As YouTube appears to be moving toward iframe as the standard, LJ needs to upgrade.

Full description of the idea
Right now, an undetailed exploit is keeping LJ from offering use of the iframe code to do embedding. Unfortunately (or, well, fortunately for the rest of the internet), YouTube appears to be shifting toward this type of embed code. The offering came up on an embed I was planning to use earlier this week, I filed a support request, they're sending me here, so there we go.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Standardization makes sense.
  • People are already getting confused as to why the embeds are breaking, and YouTube clearly wants this to be the standard.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Apparently, there's some sort of exploit that can be implemented with the iframe embed. A new way to block said exploit would need to be developed.
