Looking for something?

Rival Messenger - Update on embedded media previews!

After a lot of fine tuning and implementation of an Open Graph parser URL meta data for URLs linked in a chat is looking pretty damn nice!

There are 3 modes, try to resolve any/all metadata, only resolve metadata for sites that we know what to expect (list below), or don’t resolve anything (tinfoil hat mode).

The services that I have defined are as follows, and when you have it set to resolve all, if it doesnt find a match in our known services, it attempts to resolve Open Graph data on that URL.

  • CloudApp

  • Droplr

  • Rottentomatoes

  • IMDB

  • GitHub (work in progress, will actually write a custom parser for this)

  • YouTube

  • Flickr

  • Vimeo

  • Imgur

  • Dribble

  • Hulu

  • Dailymotion

  • Scribd

  • Slideshare

  • Soundcloud

  • Wordpress.com

I will obviously be able to add functionality as needed, but as a first pass I am very happy with how it works.
