RE: Unsupporting 3Speak??? || ¿3Speak sin apoyo?

in Threespeak3 months ago

Thanks for voicing your perspective. I appreciate you for making an effort to address the issues that exist with the 3Speak video hosting platform.

It's good to know that you have awareness of the people who are developing and monitoring 3Speak, because I personally haven't had much luck reaching them. I've stated my disappointment with the fact that 3Speak videos do not display at all in the hive.blog website, where we see the following error: "Unsupported

." Only one person responded as a representative of 3Speak. She said, "Hive doesn't support 3Speak, so just use PeakD instead." To me, that's not the answer to the issue.

And the other point that I expressed to our Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) community is that 3Speak's required advertisements feel overwhelming to me as a viewer - especially when the ads are appearing right in the middle of a song. That feels rude, to me. The equivalent is like listening to live music in a pub, and a salesperson interrupts with a sales pitch. The ads make me want to skip the videos entirely.

Anyhow, I think we're seeing that many of us are greatly appreciative of our Hive playground, for expression and connection, and this gratitude is what drives us to do all we can to keep Hive thriving. I believe it has been almost a year since 3Speak stopped working on Hive, and so I think the issue is too great to ignore at this time.

Of course is that not an answer!!! 😭

In relation with the ads, just as @eddiespino recommended, you should use Brave browser or any adsblocker. But I think this should be a personal and provisional advice, because we need a video platform that does not disturb users with those invasive ads. We have to make hear our voices!!!

If the problem for showing the embeds in Hive.blog is because some programming bug, as Eddie said, both teams (hive.blog and #threespeak) have to work together, moreover that Eddie said that on LeoFinance embeds doesn't work either.

We are working to remove the ads in the middle of the videos and maybe remove them at all.

Regarding embedded links, I will make another example. I'm not sure about hive.blog, but in LeoFinance, Twitter embedded links don't work either.

That's right Eddie. It was not long time ago when Twitter links started to show on Hive, it was announced after a HF. The same way, when 3Speak changed the domain for the first time, just because the little change from .online to .co it stopped working. Since then the troubles started, I understand that it must be "adjusted" in someway on Hive, but the thing is IT MUST BE DONE...!

Thank you Eddie for your great feedback on this topic!

This is excellent news! :-)

Great to hear this. 🙏 We'll be on the lookout for news. We are all willing for a better Hive!
