I’ve been playing with posting bookmarks via the Micropub API, and I find that any included
content value is disregarded. Instead, micro.blog seems to grab the post content from the target page. This fits most of what I’d want anyway, so that’s cool.
However, if the URL being bookmarked is a YouTube video (say of the form
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMfe7j-iMzI), then that doesn’t happen and all I get is as the below screenshot.
The page on YouTube does have meaningful
description tags in its head.
Is there anything I can do from the client side to improve on this when creating a bookmark?
