Is it just me, or has it stopped working?

    There's an issue, but it's on Embedly's end, not ours. We're affected by the API issue.

    Update: Embedly has told us that this should be resolved now.

    It seems to be working fine now, but I've got a quick question. HOw would I resize the video display window? Say for instance I have a video I want to play at just above thumbnail size as part of my layout? 

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    @DungeonMasterLoki, I think you can just wrap the inserted div in another div with the sizing you want.  For example:

    <div style='width:100px; height:100px;'>

    <div class='oembed youtube'><a href='video url' width=100'></a></div>

    </div>

    :-)  Dumb question :-)

     

    The Embed YouTube is broken, correct?  

    Are there plans to fix that?  Just curious.

    Thanks!

    @dragondreams, it should be working.  I just tried the code I posted above in a test wiki page and it displayed the video.  What are you seeing?  Do you have a sample page?

    Hi all -- I was able to embed video from twitch using the default embed video feature -- very cool -- my question is, and perhaps it's already been answered, how do you disable the auto play feature. It's curious because if I click on the adventure log main page or the specific adventure log with the embedded video, in both case, the video starts playing. What happens if I go back and embed videos in each adventure log -- will they all autoplay at the same time?

    @jeremy_langill, I think the lack of "disable autoplay" might be a bug in embedly for Twitch videos. (I submitted a ticket to embedly, so we'll see how it goes.)

    I tried yours with "autoplay=0", and it still went ahead and autoplayed.  But if I try the same "autoplay=0" with a random YouTube video, it doesn't autoplay.

    https://embed.ly/docs/explore/oembed?url=https://www.twitch.tv/videos/772815308&amp;autoplay=0

    https://embed.ly/docs/explore/oembed?url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RE8ZJXe4GE&amp;autoplay=0

    So, if you can upload your videos to YouTube, that might be an option to get around this.

    To your other question, yes, I think if you go back and embed (*Twitch*) videos in each adventure log, they'll all start playing at the same time.

    Thanks for the feedback! Let me know if embedly gets back to you regarding twitch videos...it's convenient leaving everything there and not also having to work with youtube, but I could do that as well.

    From embedly from 3 nights ago (and I haven't heard from them since)...

    At this time, support volumes outweigh our capacity to respond to all tickets. While we don't have the bandwidth to respond every time, we do review each ticket that we receive.

    So, that doesn't give me a lot of confidence...

    Well, at least they were honest in their response!

    Agreed.  It's good to know upfront when you need to find your own solution, rather than waiting for the cavalry that's (likely) never going to come.
