#45399 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Remove unsupported oEmbed providers

Reported by: notnownikki Owned by: desrosj
Milestone: 5.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Embeds Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: Cc:


FunnyOrDie and Photobucket have oEmbed endpoints listed in wp-includes/class-oembed.php that no longer exist.

Do we have anyone we can contact there to see if their APIs have been updated to a different location, or deprecated altogether?

I can easily do a patch to remove the providers if they have been deprecated.

Thanks for this one, @notnownikki!

45399.2.diff was not applying correctly so I have refreshed it. I did some research but could not find any documentation of new locations. FunnyOrDie formed a new partnership with Vox Media in 2018. I am assuming that the oEmbed support was removed when that happened.

I also audited the other embed providers in the list and all of the remaining providers appear to still be supporting oEmbeds.

In 44552:

Embeds: Remove Photobucket, FunnyOrDie from the list of oEmbed providers.

These services no longer support oEmbed.

Props skostadinov, notnownikki.
Fixes #45399.
