Instagram embedding doesn't work here and on my site

What do you want to see with that link?

You can embed posts


https://www.instagram.com/p/Bm3kitcHgwz/

I see, thanks, the error message was misleading me.

It would be cool to have it embedding some images if a link to a instagram account is posted. But it looks like instagram isn't supporting this.

We use Instagram's oembed endpoint. You can test their URLs yourself here:

https://api.instagram.com/oembed/?url=https://www.instagram.com/coryrichards/

^ Doesn't work

Example working URL: https://api.instagram.com/oembed/?url=http://instagr.am/p/fA9uwTtkSN/

We don't control which Instagram URLs Instagram will support with their oembed endpoint I'm afraid.

What’s the embed code to use in Pages custom template with the Instagram post url as field content?

I'm not sure I know how to answer that.

For the editor, when you paste a link in that we know an oembed endpoint can handle, we send it to that endpoint, and then generally embed the content that the endpoint returns. Look at the "html" property of this JSON object for instance - it has the full HTML to embed:

https://api.instagram.com/oembed/?url=http://instagr.am/p/fA9uwTtkSN/

Hi @bfarber, I would like to embed IGTV videos into Pages just like YouTube videos. For YouTube there is a field option. We give the URL and IPS handles the embedding for us. But for Instagram there is no custom filed settings.

Could you please add this setting for Instagram? If not, how could I call the oembed endpoint outside the editor, in Pages template?

Is there a class to handle the response in Pages and translate into the html to publish?

Do you have an example URL that you want to embed which doesn't automatically embed?

No. The editor embeds perfectly. That's not the issue. There is no issue at all.

What I want is to populate a database with IGTV videos URLs and them display this URLs as embedded videos in my pages. 😊
