Documentation for the Oembed feature in Silverstripe 3 anselmdk 8/29/12 10:02 AM
I was about to set up a Youtube field for a site I'm working on, using SS3, when I remembered something about the Oembed field that had been mentioned, both on this thread, as well as the blog.

It's described very briefly here:
http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/topics/rich-text-editing

However, I can't get it to work. I'd expect it to work by pressing the "Insert media" button in TinyMCE, choosing "From the web", and insering a URL, e.g. www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3hVfgtUd6k

When doing so, all I get is a 100x100 px symbol showing something as "media not allowed".

There might be some issues with my local install (e.g. maybe Curl need to be working properly), but I think a little extra documentation on how this is intended to work, as well as how to debug it would be helpful.

Should "just work", perhaps better error messages need to surface eg curl not installed etc?

Does the same URL work at demo.silverstripe.org?

Yes.
Awesome, thanks for clarifying this.
I'll have a look at what's wrong with my dev machine.

Please consider posting bug/enhancement to open.silverstripe.org and/or code fix as a pull request that would prevent others hitting the same issue ;)

only unfortunate thing with youtube oembed is that it embeds using wmode="window" by default :( sigh lol
