AdvancedActivity Vimeo Link Preview Inconsistency

    I am not sure if I am posting this topic in the correct place so please feel free to move it. 

    We're currently experiencing differences when posting vimeo links to the mail activity feed.

    When inserting an empty form popup for the Link is shown (when inserted again and posted afterwards it shows a static preview), whereas inserting instantaneously results in a preview with video.

    I assume this has to do with Advancedactivity_LinkController, where \Advancedactivity_LinkController::previewAction is called when inserting the Link whereas the frontend calls "/video/index/compose-upload/format/json/c_type/wall" (link with the video id).

    My suggestion would be to use the same functionality here no matter which Link of Vimeo is posted.

    Youtube Links also trigger the instant video preview window (but with static preview image).

    Advanced Activity Feeds / Wall Plugin 4.10.3p11

    SocialEngineAddOns Core Plugin 4.10.3p11

    Core 4.10.5

    Since advanced activity is a third party product, I've moved this to the proper section. You will want to contact that developer for a fix though.

    Since it seems a bug, you should contact their support and let them know of this thread so they can fix the bug. This way you don't pay for a bug fix.But you do have an older version so it may be something that is already fixed in a more recent version. i am not sure.

    Hi oddity Code,

    We have had a look at the above reported issue and would like to help you out with the same. 
    - We have checked on the staging setup we have at our end, both the links (one with the video ID and one without the ID) worked fine via Add Link. We have tested with the latest version of the SocialEngineAddOns Core & Advanced Activity Feeds / Wall Plugin (attached screenshot)

    - We have also captured a video for the same, please have a look:

    Upgrade the plugins to their latest version. 

    In case you need any further assistance on this, please let us know. We will be happy to assist.
