Oh, that sucks.
Youtube didn't block the Matrix URL preview service, they just changed something on their website for other reasons and it happened to break some services that try to fetch URL previews
07:10:16
@vurpo:hacklab.fitildein the end youtube has never provided reliable URL previews, they just have previously "happened to" work07:11:06

I see, well in that case I guess it'll be fixed in time. Thanks for the extra info.

How do FB, Twitter, Skype, Discord create working previews then?

They hardcode special handling for youtube.com URLs
07:22:58
@vurpo:hacklab.fitildeSynapse doesn't do anything differently from any other URLs when it sees "youtube.com" but those other ones go "oh no, a YouTube link, I better use the youtube API [or whatever] to fetch a very special URL preview for that link, because youtube is a very special website that needs special treatment"07:25:09
@vurpo:hacklab.fitildeA similar thing happened with Twitter link previews, but I think Twitter fixed it by now07:25:44
@vurpo:hacklab.fitildethose services (at least facebook, twitter, and discord) actually fetch the youtube embed page for the video and embed it into their own page, which definitely requires giving special treatment to youtube07:28:15
@david:hopfmueller.atDavidHi! I have a 1:1 room which is in a state where messages from my Element Android 1.1.3 device produce undecryptable messages on the other end. I already submitted a rageshake. Is there a way to manually rectify the situation, e.g., by initiating a new encryption session?07:51:41
@damluk:matrix.orgdamluk joined the room.08:22:24
@damluk:matrix.orgdamluk What is the right way to get a string translated that does not have a keyword in strings.xml? A pull request or some doing on translate.element.io? 08:24:28

imo synapse shouldn't treat specially, instead, the client should silently substitute previews using <details/>
