Any other oEmbed provider uses embedly service.

How to manage providers

‘greedy’ option let you activate a fallback service to not natively supported services, by default the service used is oohembed.

allowed providers:

$(".oembed").oembed(null, { allowedProviders: ["flickr", "youtube"] });

custom providers:

$(".oembed").oembed(null, {
    greedy: false,
    customProviders: [{
        "name": "",
        "urlschemes": ["streetfire\\.net\/video\/.*"],
        "apiendpoint": ""

disallowed providers:

$(".oembed").oembed(null, { disallowedProviders: ["flickr", "youtube"] });

default oembed provider:

$(".oembed").oembed(null, {defaultOEmbedProvider: ""});

embeded method


$(".oembed").oembed(null, {embedMethod: "append"});

It append to the .oembed container the result with a container classified:

<a href="..." class="oembed">...</a>
<div class="oembed-container oembed-container-Vimeo">...</div>


$(".oembed").oembed(null, {embedMethod: "fill"});

It fill the link with the results:

<a href="..." class="oembed">


$(".oembed").oembed(null, {embedMethod: "replace"});

It replaces the link with the html snippet
