Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

Usually you would see the full picture and text. Now this is what shows up



The embed link hasn't worked properly in a long time, it gets this showing up

<blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/CHA43n1ngSq/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="13" style=" background:#FFF;

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

The auto-embed code that DVD Talk's using when you copy/paste an Instagram link is no longer functional. Here's the error message that Instagram is throwing:

This endpoint is deprecated. Please read https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram/oembed to learn how to migrate your endpoint.

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

It appears that Instagram links with video don't embed properly on the forum

The above link is a video with Dwayne Johnson

Appears to be an issue specifically with IG Reels

They keep going back and forth with OKing us. I just made a new thread for our tech team and Meta corporate to look at (no need to respond to it, just for their usage)

Basically someone at Meta will OK us, then someone in a different department will rescind it. Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Thanks Zuck!

WTH is their issue? Someone in their corporate office doesn't like their links being shown on public message boards?

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

What's going on with Instagram links? They don't seem to be visible anymore. Is Meta giving you guys more difficulty again? I can see it on my tablet, but can't see it on Chrome on a PC.

I can see it on Chrome. Likely you just have different settings for your different devices/browsers

I'm using Chome desktop (Windows) and can't see his post. It's just the "view this post on instagram" link that shows up.

Edit: just checked the mobile version on iOS with chrome and can't see it there either.

Edit2: I do see it in Edge.

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

It comes and goes not being able to see it. Same with Twitter, YouTube, etc. This has been a constant issue for weeks now. Seems more than just a "check your cookies" issue...

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

I can't see Instagram either in both Brave and Chrome.

This testing site shows the same issue in both Chrome:

and Firefox:

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

OK when everyone is saying "I don't see it", do you not see anything, as if there was no link? Or is it a big blank space? Or do you see the post and it just says "view this post on Instagra,"?

It's a big empty box where the graphic would be with the link in the middle that takes you to the Instagram post.

This is nothing new. The specific problems with Instagram posts has been going on for at least a month now.

Re: Did Instagram embeds/links get killed?

Is there any chance you'll be able to fix embeds for Instagram posts? Or is that not priority? There are many forms of Instagram content that may not be available on X that I can't post here because it just leaves a bare generic link that no one will read.

And on another subject as well, is Threads able to be embeded here? Or does that not work?
