pre_oembed_result filter-hook . WP 4.5.3

Filters the oEmbed result before any HTTP requests are made.

This allows one to short-circuit the default logic, perhaps by replacing it with a routine that is more optimal for your setup.

Passing a non-null value to the filter will effectively short-circuit retrieval, returning the passed value instead.


add_filter( 'pre_oembed_result', 'filter_function_name_813', 10, 3 );
function filter_function_name_813( $result, $url, $args ){
	// filter...

	return $result;
The UNSANITIZED (and potentially unsafe) HTML that should be used to embed.
Default: null to continue retrieving the result
The URL to the content that should be attempted to be embedded.
Optional. Arguments, usually passed from a shortcode.
Default: ''
