EFF's MyTube Upgraded for Drupal 6

presca (1930744) writes "MyTube, a Drupal module by Tim Jones at EFF, has been upgraded to work in Drupal 6 with a number of new features. It works by replacing all embeds/iframes with user-activated, locally-hosted thumbnails. Written in 2008, the module was originally only implemented for Drupal 5. Two years later, the module was picked up by the Ohio State University Open Source Club. MyTube was also converted into an input filter.

From the original article:

Students at the Ohio State University Open Source Club have made some excellent and much-needed upgrades to EFF's MyTube software. Now, after months of work, Brian Swaney and other students at the Ohio State University Open Source Club have launched a new version of MyTube. Site administrators will find that protecting their users with this new version is far easier, more versatile, and less buggy than before.

EFF has been using the a backport of the changes on their site for the last few weeks, and they say it has saved them a lot of work over the previous version."
