Widget Connector extension not working.

I want to extend the Widget Connector so that when a url of our video site is inserted in Confluence, it should be recognized and embedded.

I have followed this tutorial

But for some reason, the Confluence editor is not recognizing our url. And my WidgetRender implementation never get called.

It recognizes the youtube urls.

Is there anything I am missing? Any alternative documentation on Widget Connector?

If anyone interested now: As an alternative you can use the autoconvert feature of the editor. It's javscript-based and relaces any links by text or a macro.

This example replace "" links by the "any-macro" macro:

(function() {
    AJS.bind("init.rte", function() {
        var pasteHandler = function(uri, node, done) {
            if ( = "") {
                    var macro = {
                        name : 'any-macro',
                        params : {
                            id : paramExtractedFromUrl
                    tinymce.plugins.Autoconvert.convertMacroToDom(macro, done, done);
