TED is arguably more educational than YouTube, and chat onebox support for TED talks would be welcomed.

What's TED? Never heard of it... –  Mysticial Dec 16 '12 at 2:31
@Mysticial ted.com –  Anna Lear Dec 16 '12 at 2:32
@Mystical. It's a speakers forum: Educational and inspirational talks on various subjects. Here's an example from the geekier side of TED: Beware online filter bubbles‌​. –  TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Dec 16 '12 at 2:34
The Ted I'm planning to watch next is this one: m.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwrel&v=5AJtjJebDes still, +1 for the suggestion, makes sense –  Pëkka Dec 16 '12 at 2:39
How often are these links used that they need oneboxed? Where are they used? Very important information. If no one ever links to the site, then oneboxing support is a waste of time. Any stats? –  animuson Dec 16 '12 at 5:53

A whole 47, and 37 more on Stack Overflow Chat? That seems hardly worth any effort, compared to YouTube's 18,000 and Wikipedia's 14,000. –  animuson Dec 16 '12 at 6:34
@Mysticial: An example of a TED talk (somewhat related to Stack Overflow) is Clay Shirky's How cognitive surplus will change the world. Direct download URL (43 MB, 13 min 07 sec). –  Peter Mortensen Dec 16 '12 at 13:40
Despite the title, the TED talk How the Internet will (one day) transform government, is even more relevant to Stack Overflow: 05 min 30 secs - 11 min 58 secs: cooperation without coordination, origin & working of Git, how the open-source world works, GitHub, versions control systems. Direct download URL (60 MB, 18 min 32 sec). –  Peter Mortensen Dec 16 '12 at 14:15
