Description

Viostream.com has implemented oEmbed support. Adding Viostream.com to the WordPress whitelist will enable Viostream users to seamlessly embed their videos in WordPress.

Questionnaire responses below:

Is the service is popular enough for core developers to have heard of it before? Is it “mainstream?”

Viostream is widely used by Government and enterprise businesses in Australia - many of their developers have requested easier WordPress integration.

If similar services are already supported, how does this service compare in terms of size, features, and backing?

Viostream does have a smaller market share than competitors such as Vidyard, however the feature set is particularly geared towards enterprise and Government, particularly around security aspects of the platform.

Does this service have an established social media presence?

Yes - see https://www.facebook.com/viostreamhq/ and https://www.linkedin.com/company/viostream

Is its oEmbed endpoint clearly established and properly documented? (Sometimes, they are just a developer’s pet project that may not be supported.)

Yes - see https://help.viostream.com/sharing-your-media/embedding-with-oembed-tags/

Does the oEmbed endpoint work with WordPress’ oEmbed auto-discovery? If not, could it be made to work with additional HTML tags or attributes being added to the allow-list?

Yes, discovery has been implemented.

Does the service make an effort to build relationships with developers, such as through robust APIs?

Yes, Viostream provides a RESTful API for video management as well as a player API for presentation integrations.

How old is the service?

Viostream as a business has been operating for over 20 years. The current Viostream service has been operating for over 10 years.

Does it have a well-established Wikipedia article? (Seriously.)

No.

Has anyone written a WordPress plugin that leverages the service in some way, whether adding it as an oEmbed provider, creating a shortcode, or leveraging other APIs of the service? Do these plugins have any noticeable adoption or traction that would indicate usage and demand?

No

Is the provider frequently proposed?

Yes - both existing and prospective customers have requested this functionality.
