Description

Wordpress doesn't seems to support embedding videos from lbry https://lbry.tv/
I would like to be able to embed videos from Lbry.

Thanks you!

Yes I think it's important to support and promote the alternatives to the big tech companies, who are becoming increasingly dictatorial. Thanks.

Please yes.

Wordpress must provide support to alternatives as we're trying to embed videos from Lbry because Youtube, Twitter and other big tech are censoring all the information against certain political parties struggling the freedom of speech in Internet.

Adding support to Lbry is a very important enhancing today in WordPress.

Hi @albertopajuelo2,

Welcome to Trac!

We have a set of questions regarding whitelisting oEmbed providers which I'd ask you to answer: https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/contribute/design-decisions/#whitelisting-oembed-providers

I'm going to close this one out due to lack of reporter feedback.

However, if someone is interested in seeing LBRY added, please feel free to reopen this ticket with answers to the questions linked in my previous comment.

I looked at the questions, and the very first one made me realize something is drastically wrong with the attitude.
Is the service is popular enough for core developers to have heard of it before? Is it “mainstream?”

Why would a team dedicated to open source etc etc have this kind of attitude?

It makes me wonder if it's worth using wordpress any more. Reliability etc I can understand, but having mainstream as a requirement - how are you any different to facebook and all the other crap out there?

Since this ticket was opened, https://lbry.tv/ URLs now redirect Odysee.com. I'm going to reclose this ticket are there are no longer any URLs to embed.

Adding Odysee.com was discussed in #55278 so any further discussion can happen on that ticket.

The reason this is a requirement is it helps ensure that services added to the allow list are likely to remain for a long time. If a service subsequently shuts down or is renamed, then the embeds will break.

This ticket is a case in point. Were the service added at the time the ticket was opened, WordPress would have needed to remove it within a few months.
