Currently the extension has no option to add new sites to the board.

I do not think so. All I see with that site, is a landing page, with all it's content hidden behind membership registration. The only way we would support this is if you could provide all the examples of their sharing/embed codes and URLs, because we simply can't see any of that. And their API documention provides no help.

OK. The reason this site can not be added, is because they allow other sites to use their service to host videos. The only way this extension is intended to work is if the site hosting the video is the same site that the URL is from.

That is why YouTube works. Because the URL is Youtube, and the therefor the extension knows the content will be from Youtube.

With openload, the URL could be from any site, blog, or whatever. So the site URL would give this extension no clue as to what the media site is. So basically, the only sites that can be supported, are those that host the content themselves (not one's that allow other sites to embed from).

The only exception to this would be if the video itself offered a share button with a "permalink" to the video itself, hosted on opnload, however I have not seen that on any of their videos. And that also means that users would have to know they'd need to find that share-link instead of the site's URL itself, which kind of goes against the easy way this extension is intended to make embedding videos.

Do you have any examples of such a URL in existence? (I can't find a thing, been googling it for an hour and only came up with a news article that openload.co has been using its users to mine cryptocurrencies). If that's really the case, I'm not so sure this site is legit enough for us to include in an official extension, but hey there's a BBcode for it people can use if they want, on their own.

That is a major concern. Best to install the uBlock Origin browser extension with the NoCoin filter list to protect against that. As for your question about the URL, you have to actually upload a video. Otherwise, the only URL you'll see will be openload.co
