I run a small site based on wp with user generated content. Users often submit youtube links. And then wordpress automatically converts these links to videos which is unwanted in our case. I need to override this automatic behavior so that the submitted youtube links remains in
plain text urls ?
I found out that I could remove the oembed provider itself with something like
wp_oembed_remove_provider('http://www.youtube.com/oembed') but I am stumped at how do I use this in my case where
$content is the string that contains the url as well as the submitted post content ? The codex page doesnot says much about it. Could someone give me an example of how this can be done.
In other words I need the oEmbed to skip any youtube link/s in content. Also please let me know if there is a better/more efficient way of solving this.
