Description is a website that generates tags for videos - automatically and thorough crowd sourcing. This thus creates a better experience for viewers. Y Combinator and 500 startups among others are embedding their videos through ClipMine.
Hence adding ClipMine oembed support

Hi @manaspaldhe12, welcome to Trac!

If you could please take a look at the document on whitelisting oEmbed providers and attempt to provide answers for all of the questions, it would help us get a much better idea of whether this would be a good fit for inclusion in core.

Thank you @DrewAPicture.
I will upload the patch and also answer all the listed questions soon.

-Is the service is popular enough for core developers to have heard of it before? Is it “mainstream?”
-Yes. ClipMine has publicly launched in July: We get regular requests for integrations and have reach in the range of hundreds of thousands weekly impressions and views, through social media and partner/client websites. Established web destinations like startup incubators, conferences and university websites are using and embedding ClipMine solutions.

-If similar services are already supported, how does this service compare in terms of size, features, and backing?
-There are no similar services. ClipMine offers an extensive set of features, enabling users to annotate videos and create a searchable interactive table of contents for videos. We enable users to embed single video and video playlists, which are hosted on YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion.

-Does this service have a large following on Twitter, Facebook, or other social media? Is its Twitter account verified?
-We are in the process of getting Twitter account verified and have only started social media outreach, as we publicly launched in July. Our service is not targeting general population - we are a solution for video content owners, website owners and embedders.

-Is its oEmbed endpoint clearly established and properly documented? (Sometimes, they are just a developer’s pet project that may not be supported.)
-Yes, the oEmbed endpoint is clearly established and documented.

-Does the service make an effort to build relationships with developers, such as through robust APIs?
-Yes. We have robust APIs and provide access to interested parties (individual developers and media providers)

-How old is the service?
-ClipMine is just over 2 years old.

-Does it have a well-established Wikipedia article? (Seriously.)

-Has anyone written a WordPress plugin that leverages the service in some way, whether adding it as an oEmbed provider, creating a shortcode, or leveraging other APIs of the service? Do these plugins have any noticeable adoption or traction that would indicate usage and demand?

-Is the provider frequently proposed?
-We receive frequent requests from customers to provide oEmbed support.

Thanks for the ticket, manaspaldhe12, and thank you for providing those details. It's much appreciated.

As you'll have read on the whitelisting oEmbed providers page, it's important to WordPress that our oEmbed providers are well established and trustworthy, because they gain the ability to embed any rich oEmbed data on a site.

As ClipMine is a brand new service, we won't be implementing oEmbed support for it at this time. Your best course of action is to build a WordPress plugin that provides oEmbed functionality for ClipMine (see wp_oembed_add_provider()) and promote that to your users. I'd also speak to about getting oEmbed support added there, as they have a different oEmbed policy to core.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
