Issues embedding Vimeo URLs with signatures

Reported by: elpix's profile elpix Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 5.9

The [video] shortcode is not working with the new vimeo url format (containing signature as paramter).
Example : [video data-width="500" data-height="281" controls="" src="" eq-attached="true"]L’option pour l’IS des entrepreneurs individuelsvideo

WP remove all the parameters, so the video code integration is not the good one.

Hello @elpix thank you for creating the ticket. Could you tell me if it ever worked? If so, on which version?

I was able to reproduce it on many previous versions of WordPress, it's not related to 5.9.

Test Report


  • WordPress 5.9, 5.8, 5.7
  • Windows 10
  • Theme: Twenty Twenty One

Steps to test

  1. Add a new page
  2. add a new shortcode [video data-width="500" data-height="281" controls="" src="" eq-attached="true"]
  3. Publish the page
  4. Check the source, the signature parameter is removed

after 4.8 or 4.9 changes were made due to some issue with ME.js, details are available here

// Remove all query arguments and force SSL - see #40866.
$parsed_vimeo_url = wp_parse_url( $atts['src'] );
$vimeo_src        = 'https://' . $parsed_vimeo_url['host'] . $parsed_vimeo_url['path'];

// Add loop param for mejs bug - see #40977, not needed after #39686.
$loop        = $atts['loop'] ? '1' : '0';
$atts['src'] = add_query_arg( 'loop', $loop, $vimeo_src );

This part of the code changes the src of vimeo urls.

The fix could be : "If there are no parameters in the vimeo url => do the code"

  • Severity changed from critical to normal
  • Summary changed from [video] shortcode with vimeo url to Issues embedding Vimeo URLs with signatures

Briefly discussed this with @ruudjoyo during WCEU contributor day last week.

The aforementioned loop param workaround should be safe to remove now.

There was another param though that also caused a conflict with the signature.

Ideally we add tests to prevent regressions for these URLs in the future.
