Streamlike oEmbed integration in WordPress

Wordpress can now integrate Streamlike media into sites and blogs, simply by pasting their URL. This feature, made possible by the oEmbed protocol, is quick and easy to set up.

oEmbed is a protocol that allows you to easily embed dynamic content (videos, images, tweets…) from different websites into any other site, by simply providing a URL.

Streamlike supports oEmbed since version 5.53.

Version 5 of WordPress introduced the excellent “Gutenberg” content editor.

This editor allows the composition of content by means of different types of blocks, including an “Embedded content” type, which allows, thanks to oEmbed, to present in a page a content coming from another site simply by pasting its URL.

By default, this block allows you to use content from a large number of popular providers (see details here:

Streamlike is not part of these approved third party contents by default, but it will be enough to declare it to allow the use of Streamlike URLs in the “Embedded content” blocks.

The media ID can be copied directly from the Streamlike console’s “Media” view by hovering over the media thumbnail and clicking on the icon in the lower right corner:
