    Hi Jamie

    It's the same theory as in V7, except in V8 'a lot' of the configuration has moved from configuration files into code.

    So for example if you wanted to create a new Embed provider for the DeviantArt website (like in the v7 documentation).. you'd create a provider like so:

    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using Umbraco.Web.Media.EmbedProviders;
    namespace umbraco8.EmbedProviders
        public class DeviantArtEmbedProvider : EmbedProviderBase
            public override string ApiEndpoint => "";
            public override string[] UrlSchemeRegex => new string[]
            public override Dictionary<string, string> RequestParams => new Dictionary<string, string>();
            public override string GetMarkup(string url, int maxWidth = 0, int maxHeight = 0)
                var requestUrl = base.GetEmbedProviderUrl(url, maxWidth, maxHeight);
                var oembed = base.GetJsonResponse<OEmbedResponse>(requestUrl);
                return oembed.GetHtml();

    This replaces what you would have added to the embeddedmedia.config file.

    And then there is a further step to let Umbraco know about the provider, add a new class to your project inheriting 'IUserComposer' and we can use the OEmbedProviders extension method to add the new provider in eg:

    using Umbraco.Core.Composing;
    using Umbraco.Web;
    using umbraco8.EmbedProviders;
    namespace umbraco.Composing
        public class RegisterEmbedProvidersComposer : IUserComposer
            public void Compose(Composition composition) => composition.OEmbedProviders().Append<DeviantArtEmbedProvider>();
