    I did an import of an album that is comprised of 10 private videos. They all have permissions set to be embeddable on the domain that I am embedding them on. That has been tested and works.

    The first video imported into a post works fine. The colors of the video title are red instead of the blue that I normally have set as a default, but that is only a small concern.

    The big concern is that the other 9 do not seem to import properly. Viewing each of those 9 posts shows the vimeo player loading, and then it shows:

    “Oops! The embed code for this video is not valid!”

    I have checked privacy permissions on the videos and those seem to be fine. I have tried deleting all the posts and redoing the import, and the exact same thing happened.

    If I go into the post and just manually type in the embed code for the same vimeo video that’s displaying the error, the video loads fine.



    Hi Matthew,

    Can you please give me a link to a post that displays a malformed video? Thank you.

    I’m having the same issue. My site is secured and requires username/password to access. The only difference with my issue is that I imported the video as a one off – it is a private video hosted on Vimeo.



    @Josh I answered your e-mail, since you mentioned your website requires a username/password, please let’s continue this over e-mail, thank you.



    Plugin version 1.4.8 was released minutes ago. Among other issues it also solves this problem.

    @Matthew Thank you for the hint on Vimeo’s privacy settings that were causing this error.

    Confirmed to be working now after manually updating plugin!



    Thank you for your confirmation and all your help.

    my video says “oops! The embed code for this video is not valid.” hat should I do?




    This topic is for a WordPress plugin and it deals with an error issued by an embed made with it. I don’t think there’s a connection between your example and our WordPress plugin. Please give me more details in case I’m mistaking about this.
