Quite a few users have have reported that their Vimeo galleries have suddenly stopped working. The common error message seems to be
The oauth_signature passed was not valid
The short answer is that I have no explanation why so many signatures would immediately (and concurrently) go bad. It’s definitely an issue on Vimeo’s end, as thousands of TubePress-based Vimeo galleries continue to operate normally.
Until we get a final resolution, here are some steps you can take right now:
- Post a comment in the Vimeo API forum, particularly you can add on to this existing thread. The more users that post here, the faster we can get Vimeo’s attention.
- Try the troubleshooting steps in the TubePress documentation at Troubleshooting > Server-side > Vimeo OAuth. YMMV.
- Star this issue to track updates to the problem. I’ll be posting updates here as I get them.
With luck we should be able to get Vimeo’s attention and get a fix out shortly.
