Before I begin, I have to say that this post includes links to an instance, ani.social, that has been defederated from this instance, lemmy.ml, because that's where I discovered this problem.

But in this case, I hope the admins understand that this is worth reporting and investigating, and don't insta-delete this post, because this problem appears to happen with more than that one instance, including sopuli.xyz, which is not defederated from here at lemmy.ml

Let us begin:

With Lemmy account setting “Auto Expand Media” turned on, when I’m viewing community https://ani.social/c/[email protected] on my desktop browser, Firefox on Windows, one particular post, https://ani.social/post/1923262 , causes the /c view to ask me to download an .mp4 video from streamable.com:

After declining the download, the space where the thumbnail for the expanded media goes is just blank.

This doesn’t happen when viewing the same /c on .ml https://lemmy.ml/c/[email protected]

On .ml, I just get a clickable thumbnail of the video.

It’s just that one post.

On other earlier and later posts of links to streamable.com videos in the same /c, I just get the expected clickable thumbnail.

Maybe some kind of corrupted data as that particular post was transferring over?

When I asked about this on ani.social's meta /c, another user reported the auto-download request on ani.social, sopuli.xyz (the /c's home!) but not on lemmy.ml and lemmy.world

Hi there! Looks like you linked to a Lemmy community using a URL instead of its name, which doesn't work well for people on different instances. Try fixing it like this: [email protected]

Bad bot

I'm trying to say report a bug and the steps to re-create the bug.

Streamable is bad also in discord. A similar behavior used to happen IIRC
