Yes there are threads where people note they want video's inline etc as well as a features photos. There are others as well.
What I am saying in example on the featured photo's is yes you need to place a small edit in forumhome and you would need to do same with vbgallery however PhotoPost includes the inc_features.php and inc_photopost.com files whereas vBGallery only has hacks for these things. They are not standard supported features. In PhotoPost they are and there is a big difference here between support feature and using a hack. You know this.
