oEmbed is a CKEditor plugin that allows you to insert embedded content (such as
photos, video, audio, etc.) via an external URL. For example, you can embed a
YouTube video into your content simply by pasting in the URL to the video. The
same goes for Flickr photos, Soundcloud audio, and much more!

This module provides a very simple integration between CKEditor's 'Media
(oEmbed) Plugin
' and Backdrop.

NOTE: This module will automatically add <iframe> and <div> tags to the list
of 'Allowed HTML Tags' for any text format it's enabled on.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Visit the configuration page of a text format under Administration >
    Configuration > Content authoring > Text editors and formats > [FORMAT]

  • Enable the CKEditor text editor (if not already).

  • Add (by dragging to the Active Toolbar) the 'oEmbed' button.
