Wordpress and Vidyard support the use of oEmbed technology. This allows the automatic conversion of hyperlinks into inline players.
When you add a hyperlink to a page, you notice that the link does not convert to a player. Any of the following links should be supported:
* = UUID of the player
** = Chosen subdomain for BSP or Hub
There are two possibilities why this can happen.
- If you are using wordpress.com, which is the cloud-hosted version of Wordpress, it is not possible to implement inline players using any method at this time. Vidyard is currently not whitelisted as an oEmbed provider.
You will need to continue embedding the clickable hyperlinks as a method for your viewers to watch the video.
- If you are using a self-hosted version of Wordpress (wordpress.org) then you do not have the oEmbed whitelist configuration set correctly.
The quickest way to add Vidyard to the oEmbed whitelist is to drop a vidyard-wordpress-plugin.php file into your Plugins directory.
