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).

For the Vimeo fix to work correctly you should update to the latest TT-RSS version where the Vimeo player was whitelisted.

Looks like Gawker changed something again in their VIP RSS feeds (images broken mostly). I've had to edit all of my gawker feeds (deadspin, kotaku, lifehacker, etc.) to drop the /vip from the end of the URL in order to get them working again. At this point I'm done trying to use the VIP feed URLs as they obviously aren't paying any attention to them any longer regardless of what their support people say.

Nope, just sold. Gawker.com itself as blog was shutdown but all their other site properties got sold to Univision.
