There was a meeting last night.
Updates should follow soon-ish. Just need to iron out some details with the people involved. But let's just say there was insane progress made.

Why are youtube links allowed under direct links? They're not direct links. They redirect you to another site. That makes them indirect links. Right...?
I know the proposal to have a youtube slot got shot down. But how about updating the FAQ to tell people what "indirect" means so they'll put all their youtube links there instead of posting fake direct links? It doesn't take a lot of coding to edit that page, does it? A simple "links to streaming sites" added before the "all such videos should be indirect" sentence would do the trick. Then we could avoid YT vids by not getting results with indirect links.
If it does take too much coding to edit the FAQ, maybe people can just start telling others not to use direct links for yt vids. It's a little annoying to click a button that's supposed to start a download, only to be sent to a completely different site where you *still* can't download a copy of the vid. I don't like getting streamable-only results when I search for "downloadable" vids. The last direct link I clicked didn't even take me to directly to youtube, it took me to an ad-plastered myspace page where the youtube vid was imbedded. If that's not indirect, I don't know what is.
