Kaltura - Known Issue - MediaSpace oEmbed code does not create video embeds for Pressbooks and WordPress (Resolved)

This document previously described an issue where oEmbed code from Kaltura MediaSpace did not work as expected in Pressbooks and WordPress


This affected users who embed Kaltura MediaSpace media in Pressbooks or WordPress pages. Previously pasting MediaSpace oEmbed code of a video set to "unlisted" publishing status into a properly configured Pressbooks or WordPress site would convert the embed code to a video. When the issue occurred it did not convert to an embedded video and could also generate the error "Sorry, this content could not be embedded."

A screenshot of the WordPress error "Sorry, this content could not be embedded."

Kaltura MediaSpace content previously embedded with oEmbed code continued to work. Copying and pasting old oEmbed code into a new page also did not work.


This issue was resolved at 11 a.m. on 12/9/20.
