Call to undefined function wp_read_video_metadata() in /var/www/vhosts/gdfiles

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_read_video_metadata() in /var/www/vhosts/gdfiles.net/hvac-hacks/wp-admin/includes/image.php on line 122
    Using my own theme (is based off wp 2012) – When users upload at http://www.hvac-hacks.com/share a video I get this error right at the POST.

    If it has something to do with my theme, here is the form I made:

    //Custom hvac hacks form
    function hvac_hacks_post_share() {
    	$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    	if (debugMode) fb($current_user);
    	if (isset($_POST['submit_hvac_hacks_post'])) {
    		header( 'Location:/');
    	} else {
    		if ( 0 == $current_user->ID ) {
    			return '<h1>You must be logged in to submit a post.</h1>';
    		} else {
    			return '
    			<div id="hvac-hacks-post-loader" style="display:none;">
    			<h1 style="text-align:center">Uploading your post...<br/>Please do not close your browser until we are finished...<br/></h1>

    Images work fine just as planned. How do I fix this????? Please help!

  • Hi Matt.

    caution : This solution isn’t correct but it can temporarily solve this problem.

    I got same problem today.
    I search about this function “wp_read_video_metadata()”.
    then, I knew that This function exist in media.php.

    so that, I added to include “__DIR__/media.php”; for wp-admin/includes/image.php.

    Plz try it.
