#23442 new enhancement

Allow wp_remote_get args to be filtered for oEmbed calls

Currently, the oEmbed code use wp_remote_get() to communicate with the oEmbedded service. However, there's no way to filter the arguments that get used - it simply uses the system wide defaults.

Filtering the defaults (E.g. http_request_timeout) seems overkill when you know that you only want to change things for something specific like an oEmbed call that you know may take longer than 5 seconds (E.g.

The attached patch adds a new filter oembed_remote_get_args which allows plugins to override the wp_remote_get args for oembed calls (Including discovery)

  • Keywords needs-patch added; has-patch removed
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

These filters will need documentation. They could probably benefit from additional context, such as the URL being passed and anything else available to it. Looks good, otherwise.
