Description

Hi,

Since Facebook have changed their URL prefix for videos, for example: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=533684997512168

When a user pasts that url in editor, the video is not getting embedded.
any idea if this can be fixed?

Hey there @hevger. It looks like Facebook is going to be removing access to all unauthenticated endpoints on October 24th. There are a few plugins that aim to fill in the Facebook + Instagram oembed void, but for WordPress core, this is slated to be removed in #50861.
