onebox for videos not working / Video object JSON LD

Many users share videos from in our community.

However, onebox does not create proper video embeds for this ever-growing video platform:

However, the website provides the necessary data for the embed via Json video object scheme (like many other video websites):

    "@context": "",
    "@type": "VideoObject",
    "name": "Puppy Hilariously Thinks He's An Actual \"Mountain Bike\"",
    "playerType": "HTML5",
    "description": "Gus the Cockapoo loves all outdoor activities. Here he is blasting down the steep forest trail. At one point he literally gets airborne! @guscockapoo",
    "thumbnailUrl": "",
    "uploadDate": "2021-05-27T12:24:02+00:00",
    "duration": "PT00H00M17S",
    "embedUrl": "",
    "url": "",
    "interactionStatistic": {
      "@type": "InteractionCounter",
      "interactionType": {
        "@type": ""
      "userInteractionCount": 12734
    "width": 2400,
    "height": 1080,
    "videoQuality": "Full HD"
    "@context": "",
    "@type": "WebSite",
    "url": "",
    "potentialAction": {
      "@type": "SearchAction",
      "target": "{search}",
      "query-input": "required name=search"
    "@context": "",
    "@type": "Organization",
    "name": "Rumble",
    "url": "",
    "logo": "",
    "sameAs": [

Is there a way that onebox would also consider/parse the widely used video scheme JSON LD in the future in addition to oembed?


Anybody? Any plan for onebox to look for the Json video object scheme if it can’t find viable data from the meta tags?


It would be great to have support for Rumble, especially given that YouTube is censoring a growing amount of important information and points of view.

Now that Rumble is a public company, there will certainly be a growing number of Discourse users who would like for Rumble videos to be as easily embedded as YouTube.


I just ran into this also. I’d love for Rumble videos to work the same as Youtube and Vimeo videos on our Discourse. My partner and I just started a Rumble account and are frequently publishing videos there that will also be posted on our community’s Discourse. Being able to view the videos directly from Discourse would be a great upgrade. Thanks for considering this! :heart:

Also having issues embedding videos from Rumble. Would love to see this as a Discourse feature in the future. We’re using youtube for a lot of our content, but moving forward we want to transition to a platform that doesn’t censor or subjugate it’s users.
