Iframe missing from feed content


The feed contains iframes (youtube embeds) as part of the content of many posts.
These used to show up and still do on old entries, but since maybe a month back they no longer appear in Newsblur despite still being in the feed.

Look at entries title Inside Star Citizen as an example.

Are they intentionally being stripped out?

I have the same problem with a feed not showing, for instance this frame excerpted from a direct curl of the feed:

<iframe style="border: none" src="//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/19371707/height/360/theme/legacy/thumbnail/yes/direction/backward/" height="360" width="100%" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

(This happens also on the beta site.)

@samuelclay Any news on this bug?

Seems like a serious issue since it defeats the purpouse of an RSS reader if you have to open the story on web to see its full contents.

Thanks for bringing this up, I found the bug and fixed it. It should also work retroactively, so videos should show up in older stories.
