Wordpress/Jetpack shortcode embed fails


#1

I was trying to change the video embedded in one of my blog posts to be from Twitch and noticed an interesting issue. I doubt it is high on Twitch’s list of things to do, but the embed from a short code does not appear to work. I’ve put these on a hidden page, if someone at Twitch wants to take a look:

The short codes for these two embeds are:

[youtube https://youtu.be/QE3seiWsV7Y]

and

[twitchtv url=https://www.twitch.tv/videos/382508235]

respectively.

I was able to “kind of” get it working by adding raw HTML, but that is not something that most WordPress users are going to do. The third video on the page uses:

<iframe src=“https://player.twitch.tv/?autoplay=false&video=v382508235” frameborder=“0” allowfullscreen=“true” scrolling=“no” height=“450” width=“100%”></iframe>

Not super urgent. We can leave the YouTube one in place. But I’d prefer to embed Twitch videos…

This is an issue for Wordpress/Jetpack to fix. Not a issue for Twitch to fix.

Please raise the issue with Jetpack or fix it and PR it back to Jetpack

I’ll can contact Jetpack, but it would be in Twitch’s own interest to drive the change directly with Jetpack and monitor it themselves going forward. You should add it to your quality checks any time you change your embed mechanisms.
