Hello.

While we wait for the fix from Gawker themselves (which will not work anyway ;) ) I wrote a small plugin to fix the issue. You can find it here: https://github.com/nowotny/ttrss-fix_gawker_embeds

Currently it only works with YouTube and Vimeo embeds. There are also Twitter embeds in the articles but those aren't supported yet (if ever).

Thank you very much!
I was unable to get the retroactive fix to work, probably user error. But the new items are embedding correctly so that is really nice.
