Support » Installing WordPress » Video embed function not available (oEmbed) in WP 2.9

  • Mandy


    I updated to WP 2.9 and recently to 2.9.1 and in both versions I wasn’t able to see the new video embed functionality. It doesn’t even show up in the media settings as an option (see screenshot: ).
    Any idea what might be the problem?

    This is the setting for embedding, automatically:

    My screen in English has exactly the same number of boxes in the same place and I believe if you translate it, this is the setting. It’s already checked to convert plain text URLs and use a max height of 600.

    Here is my screen in English:

    Looks like everything is set correctly. Have you tried pasting a plain text URL into a post or page to see what happens?



    I’m having this problem as well. We’re using 2.9.1.

    The media settings show up as in the screenshots previously in this thread. But the auto-embed simply doesn’t work.

    I tried pasting a YouTube URL into a new post, with no result — or rather, with the result of just the text of the URL showing up in the post, no embedded video.



    @chrishajer OMG you are right, the settings for embedding appears in this page… well, the german translation confused my probably… 😉
    Anyway, I already tried to put a youtube link to a post, but nothing happens, it will be displayed as text.

    Could there be an issue with the PHP version running on the server? As far as I know my hosting provider is always a little bit out-of-date when it comes to updates on the server…

    I got the same problem ….. does anyone have a solution?

    I have this problem today but it only happens to Flickr photos and videos. I tried youtube etc and it’s working.

    Anyone have a solution yet?
