Hi mastodonglords, is there a way to share, say, an MP3 as part of a toot on any instances? Asking for a friend.
@Gargron @anildash @migurski The concern is legit but the same applies to videos (with copyrighted music) so what is the difference really? Also, this should be a setting for an instance admin imo (allowed file formats). So it seems like an odd decision considering it is a decision made for all instances, not just yours?
@Gargron @anildash @migurski idk, maybe if this was all a centralized system then sure, that would be very risky. but if I am running an instance of my own, that risk decision is my own. maybe I just want to share user-gen voice recordings, or public domain lectures etc. with the variety of communities setting up instances, these sorts of restrictions start to become less logical imo. i know, it's open source so edit the code then ;-)
@sull @migurski @anildash But there's also the question of how deep you wanna go into implementing rich media into the platform. Image galleries and a simple video player are one thing, accomodating audio players and whatnot additionally is a lot of bloat when you could just link to external media hosting.
