content_width from Jetpack doesn't work with oembed on

Reported by: nofearinc's profile nofearinc Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: low
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords:


WordCamp Europe's website is running a customized (CSS-wise) Twenty-Twelve theme, and we are using oembeds to embed videos from

However, changing the $content_width through Appearance -> Edit CSS -> Content Width doesn't seem to fix the width for oembeds.

We had a gallery issue and it was fixed when the content width was increased from Edit CSS. oembed videos are still rendering with a limited width (the width HTML attribute).

I've cloned the theme setup locally and activated Jetpack and it seems to work here. Can't make it work on

An example is Nacin's video which didn't work with oembed or the shortcode.

May be a Jetpack issue, uncertain?

Wasn't able to reproduce it locally with the latest Jetpack from .org and the same theme from WCEU - we could test again when is updated, unless it pulls everything from trunk. There's a link to a post that reproduces the issue so it will be obvious if it has been fixed :)

Did you resave the posts with the embedded links in it?

The oembed process happens when the post is saved. If you don't resave, then it doesn't happen again, and so the retrieved data won't change.

I did, and just did again on the link above. Plus, it wasn't needed locally - just refreshed the page and the embed width/height were normal.
