Iframe missing from feed content

newsblur.com/site/7608023/

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.
