    Hi there, please could you give some more details including your usage of the wp_embed_register_handler and the URL you’re trying to embed? I’ve just tested it with Spotify embeds using this code to register the handler and it worked fine.

    Kind regards

    Hi, thx for your reply, my wp_embed_register_handler is :

    wp_embed_register_handler( 'consonet', '#http://(?:www|video)\.conso\.net/(?:video/visionneuse_conso\.php|embedvideo/)\?videoDocIdy=([\d]+)($|&)#i', 'wp_embed_handler_consonet' );
    function wp_embed_handler_consonet( $matches, $attr, $url, $rawattr ) {
      $embed = sprintf(
          '<div style="width: 644px; height: 500px; position: relative; overflow: hidden;"><iframe style="position: absolute; top: -60px; left: -5px;" src="$s" width="644px" height="415px" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"></iframe></div>',
      return apply_filters( 'embed_consonet', $embed, $matches, $attr, $url, $rawattr );

    I tried to embed the videos (french site) with link like:

    As I said, with this code, it’s work on a wysiwyg field, but not with your plugin.

    Hi there, I’ve looked into this a little more and it seems that wp_oembed_get(), which the plugin uses to get the embed code from the URL, only supports fully oembed compliant providers added using wp_oembed_add_provider(), rather than faking oembed via wp_embed_register_handler() as you’ve used. This doesn’t seem quite right to me however, I’d expect wp_oembed_get() to support either kind of provider, so I’ll keep looking into it.

    A temporary fix you’d be able to implement yourself is to swap out the wp_oembed_get() calls for:

    global $wp_embed;
    $embed = $wp_embed->shortcode($args, $url);

    The two places to look for are line 13 on oembed-ajax.php and line 230 of oembed-v4.php. I’m not going to add it to the plugin yet because it would mean losing the ‘object’ return type.
