Description

Hello,
I'm writing this ticket in the name of Onet.tv service, which is part of Onet.pl (Ringer Axel Springer product in Poland). Current Onet.tv version is working since December 2014, and in last week we added implementation of oEmbed specification to our product. Whole platform Onet.pl is one of biggest Polish web portal which work since 1996. According to Megapanel PBI/Gemius we have around 15.5 millions of real users. Onet.tv is video service which contains premium materials (not user created content). But one of most important things is that we use iframe with Onet.tv source on whole portal, and on several Ringer Axel Springer products. You can find info about Onet.pl on wikipedia (english version http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onet.pl polish version http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onet.pl). oEmbed is documented and established across whole team, and we planning to share knowledge with whole IT department. Onet.pl is huge part of Polish blogosphere. Our CMS for blogs is WordPress based, so yes we use our API on other services and we had to add our service as provider in code.
You can find oEmbed endpoints in source code of every page where license allow us to embed on external website and they looks like:

JSON (default format):
<link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed" href="http://www.onet.tv/oembed?url=onet.tv%2Fl%2Fwrzucnaruszt%2Fsyrop-imbirowy-z-cynamonem-oraz-imbir-w-syropie%2F19j3z&amp;format=json" title="Gulasz z szynki wieprzowej">

XML:
<link rel="alternate" type="text/xml+oembed" href="http://www.onet.tv/oembed?url=onet.tv%2Fl%2Fwrzucnaruszt%2Fsyrop-imbirowy-z-cynamonem-oraz-imbir-w-syropie%2F19j3z&amp;format=xml" title="Gulasz z szynki wieprzowej">

AFAIK oEmbed providers should be useful for the majority of WordPress users and be very popular and proven to be reliable.

Onet.tv is only useful for Polish users and only added oEmbed support in December. I'd recommend offering a WordPress plugin for this. It's nothing for core at the moment.

Ok, thanks for your answer, I just thought one of biggest portal in country is enough to be "useful for the majority", so I had to try. We'll have to do plugin then.

Thanks for the suggestion, MateuszRakus. As noted in the comments above, at this time Onet.tv is not mainstream enough for oEmbed support to be added to WordPress core.

A good approach would be to create a WordPress plugin which adds oEmbed support for Onet.tv and offer this to your users. This also helps us gauge a service's popularity in the future.
