    All embedded YouTube videos display oohembed error message

    Just today I noticed that all of the YouTube videos I have embedded on my website now won't display. Instead, in its place is this error text:

    Does anyone know what the problem could be?  All was working fine up until today, even up until 2 hours ago. 

    Thanks.

    I am having the same problem. Anyone knows what is going on? I have found out that if i embed the video in the clasic way (object...) and make the width at max the width of it's container then it works. But if you have 100 pages with videos??? impossible to fix. so.. what is the problem??

    Looks like embed.ly bought http://oohembed.com/ and has changed the underlying process for embedding.  I just started using this package last week Thursday and it is busted today. 

    I don't see anything accessible in the .ascx.  No .cs included.  Looks like we're going to need an update!

    I started using the package today and started to receive errors after inserting a few videos. I was using 4.7.

    If any of you guys are desperate you can download the source, it's really easy to edit the Page_Load method of the user control to change the URL from 

    http://www.oohembed.com/oohembed?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F18150336

    to

    http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F18150336&key=your_embedly_key

    done it for you to bridge gap to next release:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2228117/CPalm.Umbraco.Macro.OEmbed.zip

    make sure you add to appsettings in web.config (you need to sign up for the key on http://embed.ly):

     <add key="embedlykey" value="your_embedly_key" />

    Because the developer is MIA I have created a patched version of the package (v0.9.1). That way it's easier to install as a local package. I will not upload it to the package repository, since it's not my work. But you can download it from my Dropbox (no guarantees it will work, but I tested it on Umbraco 4.7.1 and it seems to work just fine wih Flickr, YouTube and SlideShare).

    Thanks to tentonipete for the fix and to Christian Palm for the original OEmbed package!

    Hi Guys,

    I have installed Michiels 0.9.1 package - went to embed.ly and got an api key and added it to my web.config - however I am still seeing this error

    Error with embedding the source
    oohembed source: http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed ? maxwidth=640&maxheight=375&url=http%3a%2f%2fvimeo.com%2f26350282&key=

    It seems that it can't pick up my API key? Any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Hi Owen,

    Only thing I can think of is that your appSetting doesn't use the right name: embedlykey

    Can you double check just to be sure?

    Hi Michiel,

    I resolved my problem, I copied and pasted the API with a trailing space (oops!) 

    Thanks for creating this patch, I was in a pretty tough spot before!

    Cool!

    I just packaged it up, also thanks to the the others in this thread before me that did the hard work.

    Hi guys,

    I've installed this package and managed to get a YouTube link embedded nicely when I first hit Save and Publish. However, I can't seem to make any further changes to the page without coming across this error:

    Length cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: length

    I found this post http://our.umbraco.org/forum/using/ui-questions/27451-Length-cannot-be-less-than-zero-Parameter-name-length and made changes to the TinyMCE and Umbraco config files as instructed but to no effect.

    If I remove the macro, all is good. Has anyone else come across this error and if so, how did you get around it?

    Thanks in advance

    Which package Claire? I am just setting this up and would like to start with the right solution.

     

    Thanks

    Stewart, try the uTube package for embedding video. I haven't had any problems with it in Umbraco v4.7.1.
