Can't insert Dailymotion videos

Post by WhoseLineFan on Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:49 pm

I'm trying to insert some videos from Dailymotion into a thread I created, but I keep getting a message saying Invalid Dailymotion Video instead.

Does anyone know how can this be fixed?

i don't think it's possible...i've looked around to see if other forumotion sites have the capacity to post dailymotion videos in threads and it looks like they do. in the post box, there would be an icon represented by a video. when it is clicked it would show an option to link a youtube, dailymotion, or google video. however i'm a mod and i don't have the ability to toggle certain functions like that...i could bring it to lotta's attention (he's the forum's admin)

I've poked around a bit, and I see exactly what you mean. While there is a Dailymotion quick-embed button on the full "Post Reply" or "New Topic" menu right next to the YouTube option, it usually results in an "Invalid Video" message.

I'm going to look into this more thoroughly and see if there's a solution. I wasn't able to find much at a glance, but I'll contact Forumotion tech support and see if we can figure this out.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

I'm guessing Dailymotion changed their embedding API and Forumotion hasn't updated their end yet.

In the words of Star Trek's Dr. McCoy, "I know engineers, they sure love to change things." Any time a website changes or updates their API it can cause all sorts of headaches for the other sites and devices that use them.

I remember when YouTube changed theirs a few years back, and if you owned a an app enabled TV or BluRay player that was no longer being provided with firmware updates, the YouTube apps on them suddenly became useless and there was no fix.

Dailymotion recently changed their entire site design (much like YouTube always does), and nothing is working at all right now because of it - that could be a reason why.

Dailymotion is working just fine for me, I just can't insert videos on the site.
