Not a programmer, but a tech-related professional. I think this should be possible, and I might be willing to fund a bounty for it.
To submit a picture/video/other, a Saidit user currently has to upload it on an offsite host, then submit the link to Saidit. These links can go down or be censored, and it's an extra step for the user.
Reddit implemented their own hosting (i.redd.it) to reduce reliance on third-party hosts, and save the user that one step. However, the problem of censorship is still there.
I would be interested in a third way: when a user clicks 'submit link', they can upload an image or video to IPFS. This would ensure permanence and censorship-resistance, and reduce reliance on hosting sites without increasing hosting costs for Saidit.
This is possible - https://ipfs.pics/ currently allows drag-and-drop uploads in the browser. Code here: https://github.com/ipfspics/ipfspics-server
Feedback is welcome. How long would it take developers to implement this?
