I'm using this filter

remove_filter( 'the_content', array( $GLOBALS['wp_embed'], 'autoembed' ), 8 );

Confirmed, and it's not limited to

If I paste any URL into TinyMCE, it's displayed as an oEmbed view for a couple of seconds.

Yes, I think there's a ticket for this somewhere. To fix this, we need to change how views are loaded in the editor.
However, I don't think we disable the oEmbed views if the filter is removed.

Looks like the solution to this particular problem is pasting into an existing line - or pasting into anywhere that is not a new p tag.

I'm seeing the exact opposite problem in that when you paste a youtube url into the editor in 4.1, it seems it will only ever turn into an embed if it happens to be pasted on a blank paragraph.

If you're using forced_root_block=div mce option, or even just have started with


on a post, it seems you can never insert embed by pasting a url, or pasting url on a new line.

It looks like this is expected behavior according to the source in wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wpview/plugin.js:

No explanation is given in the code as to why it must be in an empty p tag

	// When the editor's content changes, scan the new content for
	// matching view patterns, and transform the matches into
	// view wrappers.
	editor.on( 'BeforeSetContent', function( event ) {
		var node;

		if ( ! event.content ) {

		if ( selected ) {
			removeView( selected );

		node = editor.selection.getNode();

		// When a url is pasted, only try to embed it when pasted in an empty paragrapgh.
		if ( event.content.match( /^\s*(https?:\/\/[^\s"]+)\s*$/i ) &&
			( node.nodeName !== 'P' || node.parentNode !== editor.getBody() || ! editor.dom.isEmpty( node ) ) ) {

		event.content = wp.mce.views.toViews( event.content );

  • Severity changed from critical to normal

As noted in comment:2, unexpected oEmbed view only shows up for a couple of seconds. It might be annoying, but it doesn't seem critical.

See also #29841, which has a patch and appears to resolve this.

#16 @iseulde

See also #31412. It will probably be fixed there.

  • Component changed from Editor to Embeds
  • Focuses javascript administration removed
  • Keywords has-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 4.2

Not sure if this is a good fix, but it works.
Something to look out for here is widgets...

#18 @azaozz

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The problem reported here was fixed in #31412. When pasting a non-embeddable URL in an empty paragraph in the editor, we wait for the embed check to return before converting it to a wpView.

As to completely disabling this feature (embed when pasting embeddable URL), we can make that easier by adding a filter, perhaps in wp_ajax_parse_embed(). This enhancement will need a new ticket :)

Fixed in [31546].
