comment Adding a wrapper to the youtube embed automatically?
It's post meta for the post, not in an attachment. The key is _oembed_hash, where hash is the MD5 hash of the URL and the attributes involved. Look at class-wp-embed.php, line 180 or thereabouts.

The info from oembeds is saved as post-meta.

The filter runs when the data is gathered from the oembed provider. So, it you already embedded the post, and the embed data is cached, this won't modify it.

comment Disable emojicons introduced with WP 4.2
What trolling? I don't understand why you're singling me out here. I made a plugin to disable something I didn't like. I gave it away for free. I didn't write the damn emoji code. I don't like the emojis. So, why are you being a dick to me? Also, this is entirely inappropriate for the StackExchange website.

Well, that is essentially the root of it. I take life as it is, not as I want it to be. I don't want the emoji on my site, so I made a plugin to turn them off. How is this complicated to you?

I'm not sure how you could get that I "furiously defend" the feature. I wrote the code to disable it. I wrote the plugin to put back the original smilies. I don't really like emoji. But I also know how this sort of thing goes, and I feel that options are important. Which is why I wrote these plugins: Specifically to provide well-supported options and proper backwards compatibility.

@Pichan Putting the same code in the theme is no different than putting the code into a plugin from a performance standpoint. From an organizational standpoint, having a bunch of unrelated code in your theme makes things harder to test and debug in the long run. Each piece of code that does a different thing should be in separate modules, not all clumped together into one big file. Having a "big list of plugins" is better because you can turn each of those off as needed. Additionally, if core changes in the future, the plugin will update. Your copy/pasta won't.
