    Slightly odd corner case in Lobsters’ tagging system here: this is a written article. It is tagged video because it’s about video. Usually that tag is meant to be used to allow people to filter out posts where the content is a video rather than the written word.

    Not sure if lobsters’ tagging actually has a solution for this? So I’m going to just go off on a tiny bikeshed aside here: perhaps the ‘video’ tag could be called type:video or something like that? The same thing comes up for people wanting to filter out posts that are links to PDFs then being unable to see ordinary written posts on the web about topics like PDF rendering.

      Yeah I was actually a little wary about putting the video type but there didn’t seem to be any other tag that fit better - definitely nothing on HLS or streaming.

      I think a type: prefix sounds like a great solution.
