Embed media by pasting a URL to the media (e.g. from YouTube)

I don’t really understand the delineation here between “official” or not.

On one of my observations I have a link to camera trap footage for which you really need to see the video. The images simply do not suffice. The linked footage is integral to the ID.
Is this not an “official” part of the observation?

It would be great to see a version of this feature implemented given that support for gifs is apparently being phased out.
