[resolved] DailyMotion Videos not working (6 posts)

    Hi there,

    When I insert a youtube URL it works as expected, but when I try using a DailyMotion video it does not work. The field turns red after publishing.

    The dailymotion embed code works fine if inserted directly into a post.

    I tried removing all query string params but that did not help.

    I'm on WordPress 3.5.1.

    What is the video URL not working for you? I just tried some random videos from dailymotion, they all got URLs like "http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xrwc18" which work fine for me.

    If I use the embed codes found in their publisher syndication site it doesn't work. Example: http://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/xq2no8

    If I grab the URL from their public site it does work.

    Additionally, I noticed that your plugin strips any query string parameters. That means I can't include the syndication partner key parameter (for revenue sharing on ads). Is there a way to have that included or do I need to alter your plugin to hard code it?

    The plugin just works with the public site URL. I never accessed the publisher syndication site or thought about syndication partner key parameters. So no, the plugin does not support those at the moment.

    Can you maybe post an example what the syndication partner key parameter looks like? I do not find it in their api documentation just now.

    I will look into supporting the /embed/video/# URL style in the next release.

    This is an example


    The partner key is the syndication= param

    Probably best to include all these parameters as options in your media settings page and build the URL that way.

    The logo, hideinfos, foreground, highlight and background parameters are already included. syndication and start will be featured in the next release. Thanks for the example URL!
