I’ve got ARVE Pro add-on. Wonderful plugin, by the way. I noticed, however, that the latest updates have broken what was otherwise a graceful failure of certain features.
For example, (and this is the biggest for me personally, but certainly not the only possible scenario) if an attachment (for thumbnail image) is unavailable, it used to simply not show an attachment, but still served the embedded video with the default thumbnail from the host (YouTube, in my example).
Now, it breaks with a message of an unavailable attachment, even for those who are NOT LOGGED IN.
Normally, I imagine that this is not a big deal for most users who run a small handful of sites, at most. In my case, I’ve got a multisite network with nearly 200 sites, each one containing videos using your awesome plugin.
The thumbnail feature wasn’t working, but it failed gracefully, and rather than spending the hours to go through every site and fix them manually, it was far easier to adjust the thumbnail on YouTube directly for our own videos. No worries, the videos displayed fine, and there was no problem for visitors.
Not anymore. Now, everyone sees the ARVE error: rather than the intended video content. Is this really necessary for non-logged-in users?
It seems unnecessarily invasive, in my view. Is it possible to implement a graceful failure in a future (hopefully soon) version?
