Remove unsupported Hulu oembed provider

As mentioned in, Hulu no longer seems to support their oembed service.

It seems like the best option would be to drop Hulu support similar to previous unsupported providers in #45399.

@talldanwp let me know if there are any changes. Thanks!

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 5.5

I'm thinking this is a good bug to squash for 5.5. Moving into the milestone to explore.

It is removing a service that will no longer work as expected, and not adding or changing functionality in any way.

@talldanwp If we chose to remove oEmbed support for Hulu in 5.5, could the Hulu oEmbed block be disabled and backported?

Hey @desrosj, sounds good, it looks like the 'Backport to WP Core' label has been added to the merged pull request for removing the block (, so we should be good to go for landing both changes in 5.5.
