instagram embed can be supported
- Andrew A.
- Nah. It's an Instagram _channel_ entry embed. Open https://www.instagram.com/lefreakeschic/channel/: in OGTV tab, all entries have /tv/ in their path (as opposed to the standard /p/). These embeds don't work in IV: see my competitor's template who tries to transform it to a standard /p/ embed (incorrectly so): https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/ar13.cl/template9/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ar13.cl%2Fpasarelas%2Flas-botas-vaqueras-moda-e-historia-0. By the /tv/ URL they don't work as well.
If IV developers get to support /tv/ embeds, they would also update the standard code for Instagram (which now mentions only /p/), making the official embed code on this page work. So, while I of course could set the <iframe> "src" parameter to https://www.instagram.com/tv/BwXOppKj-bp/, practically it has no sense to do this—either way, it wouldn't work now and would work in the future if IV gets to support it.
