Feature Request: Is there a way to add native video media support to BuddyPress Activity Plus?

Now that WordPress 3.6 allows native video hosting, can buddypress activity plus allow the upload and embedding of native video in the activity stream? Is this a feature you're considering? Is there a quick way I can make this a reality? For now it looks like I can only embed from third party sites like youtube?

    Hi @ppq,

    I can confirm that for the time being, BuddyPress Activity Plus doesn't handle native video uploads. I think you might actually be the first to bring this up, as for no I don't think it's planned for the plugin.

    Looking forward to see what other members of the community think here.

    Really think that BuddyPress needs all the help it can get with regard to Videos!

    Two things that would be great
    1 As described a native upload system
    2 A direct uploading system to Vimeo, YouTube accounts.

    Also what would be great is some fields for say Video Title and description built into the upload form.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
