I’m not entirely sure if this is a bug or not, but it used to function this way and then stopped (like it did for imdb making all links into posters, which was fixed) so I’m guessing it wasn’t intended…
Anyway for a few months now my Drive links no longer OneBox properly. They used to show up as indicated in this post (which was a fix for them not working initially) Google Drive video link does not embed video - #20 by techAPJ
now they just display as just the link, and give an explanation such as this in the preview
It doesn’t matter if it’s a link to a folder, video, specific file, image, etc. none of them function anymore. Is there something I have to turn on or add in the admin panel to get this function back, is it a bug that can be fixed or just a change that was made? All of the old posts that had the OneBox effect still have it, until the post is edited and then it’s changed to the link, so it didn’t retroactively remove them all. I don’t care if videos embed which is what that original topic is about (although that would be cool) just that general onebox format when posting links. Obviously this isn’t that much of an issue since I left it for months, but I was always thinking maybe an update would correct it but never did.
