Embedding Facebook live links causes error

By Christian Scheuer @chrscheuer2020-10-24 15:33:05.548Z

See this post for an example where the embedding doesn't work:

In this case, it would be better if the error message was not displayed (and obviously, even better if the embedding worked to show a thumbnail)

    Summary: FB's API changed yesterday. I'll need to get an access key. I'll disable FB & Insta until then.


    Apparently FB has recently changed their API — yesterday, October 24. The auto tests break too, now. The server gets back this error message from FB's Instagram:

    This endpoint is deprecated. Please read to learn how to migrate your endpoint

    Seems I just need to change the OEmbed URL to:
    and do some corresponding change for FB posts (not Instagram) also

    ... But now I noticed FB also requires people who link to FB or Instagram via OEmbed to sign up for an access key, ... I'll do soon, and until then I'll need to disable FB and Instagram previews. (Short of time, trying to build a new server version today)

    1. Progress
      with handling this problem
