Built in instagram embed not working (5 posts)

    I'm using the built in instagram embed function of wordpress as decribed here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/instagram/instagram-images/

    For some reason when I try to embed an image or video from intagram it does translate the link into an embed code but the image isn't displayed. The code it generates is the following:

    <a href="http://instagram.com/p/mBCUpnLyyj/" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','http://instagram.com']);"><img src="http://distilleryimage3.ak.instagram.com/9ec7f4d6b51511e39b0d1291fd40f4c7_7.jpg" alt=""See My Reflected City"What a difference a #puddle makes:) Have a great eve!! [pic by @mariannehope]" width="612" height="612"></a>

    When you copy the image source link into your browser you get a piece of XML saying "acces denied.
    This is what you see in your browser when viewing the blog post that contains the embed code: http://s29.postimg.org/bqc6t061j/Screen_Shot_2014_03_27_at_12_52_49.png

    [ No bumping please. ]

    Are you hosted on WordPress.com or self hosted? If you are self hosted does your theme support this functionality? Are you using any plugins to display instagram pics?

    Thanks for the reply, I'm not using a plugin to display the instagram photo or video, just the built in instagram embed function as described here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/instagram/instagram-images/

    We're self hosted.

    I doubt it native embed works on self hosted blogs yet. You can try this plugin instead

    I think Ferry is talking about the function described here.

    It clearly states that Instagram has been supported since 3.4, which is, as Ferry wrote, obviously not working at all.
