Get more out of oohEmbed with Embedly

Updating your code is really easy

Embedly works the same way oohEmbed did. Once you have your Embedly key, all you need to do is change the URL your current code is pointing to.

Old Code

Currently, calls made to oohembed.com look like:

http://www.oohembed.com/oohembed?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F18150336
New Code

Update the URL you're requesting data from to:

http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F18150336&key=your_embedly_key

Don't forget to change your_embedly_key to the key you received on sign up.


That's it

All your existing implementations will continue to work. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at support@embed.ly.
