    I've added it to my list, but I have some other things I need to focus on before doing another release of this plugin, so it may be a while. I'll definitely keep you posted. If you're able to work on it, please make a PR and I'll be sure to include it in my next release :)

    Support for YouTube videos is also coming :)
