None of our Webflow CMS sites will currently accept a video link - either in the dedicated field or in rich text. Throws the ‘invalid url’ message. I’ve tested multiple sites and many url variations trying to resolve the issue for a client. Could Embedly be at fault?
Update: It’s only YouTube, not Vimeo
Thanks for reporting this. We’re seeing the same thing on our side with YouTube videos affected and are looking into it.
It appears it’s an embedly issue: https://twitter.com/search?q=youtube%20embedly&src=typed_query
You can see embedly is returning an error for any youtube links https://embed.ly/docs/explore/oembed?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dw-kBRUXsuSQ
You can use custom code embeds in rich text, even in the CMS in rich text fields now as a workaround to embed youtube videos https://webflow.com/feature/custom-code-in-rich-text-elements
but it’s not quite the same as our embedly integration where we wrap the embedded iframe in a
figure->div->iframe structure which special css classes the make it resize and maintain aspect ratio at different breakpoints.
Hoping to have a solution, or at least an update this week
Thanks for the update. We’ll knock up the custom code work-around as a solution for the client in the interim.
