oEmbed - Add a function to remove an oEmbed provider

Reported by: r-a-y's profile r-a-y Owned by: ryan's profile ryan
Milestone: 3.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.9
Component: Media Keywords: has-patch needs-refresh
Focuses: Cc:


In /wp-includes/media.php, there's the ability to add an oEmbed provider with wp_oembed_add_provider(), but no way to remove one.

The attached patch is an attempt to allow you to remove an oEmbed provider.

For the $match parameter, I've opted to allow you to match any portion of the $format key.

For example, to remove the YouTube oEmbed provider, you can use:

wp_oembed_remove_provider( '#http://(www\.)?*#i', '' );


wp_oembed_remove_provider( '', '' );


If partial matching for the $format key is undesired, let me know and I'll repatch for an exact match only.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Version changed from 3.1 to 2.9

Clever, but I think we should just have:

function wp_oembed_remove_provider( $format ) {
	require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/class-oembed.php' );
	$oembed = _wp_oembed_get_object();
	if ( isset( $oembed->providers[ $format ] ) ) {
		unset( $oembed->providers[ $format ] );
		return true;
	return false;

That was how I originally wrote the function.

I was concerned about having duplicate $format's when I just realized that $format is a key! D'oh!

So this works for me.
