Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

Recommended Posts

Agreed with Martijn, that's probably better in most (if not all) cases. If you really want to use this module, something like this should work too:

if ($page->your_field) {
    $value = "<p>" . $page->your_field . "</p>";
    $modules->get('TextformatterVideoEmbed')->format($value);
    if (strpos($value, "<p>") !== 0) echo $value;
}

Only benefits of that approach would be having a common way to present videos on your site, and using oEmbed instead of relying on your own case-by-case embed codes. Other than that, I don't really see much value in it :)

The other option would be to change the regex in the module. This is what I use in Get Video Thumbs and it works fine with plain text (URL) and Textarea fields:

/\s*(?:http(?:s)?:\/\/)?(?:www\.)?(?:youtu\.be\/|youtube\.com\/(??:watch)?\?(?:.*&)?v(?:i)?=|(?:embed|v|vi|user)\/))([^\?#&\"'<>]+)/

That said, I agree with Martijn's approach :)

Hi everyone, 

I wrote, after install module and format Video embed in details.

Could I write a php line to see video on my browser page of Processwire?

Like:

. . .

<div class="video-container"><?php echo $page->video_field->url; ?></div>
. . .
 
Thanks

Don't use the formatter. Why not simply use:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="<?php echo $page->your_field; ?>" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> 

But that doesn't help much with inline Videos which are put somewhere, whereever in whatever textarea?

Unless in combination with Hanna Code ... !

Btw. I made this module to be able to adjust some youtube embed options (my very first module btw.) ... https://github.com/blynx/TextformatterVideoEmbedOptions

Not super useful - but for now it works in my project. I am thinking about how to make this thing actually useful considering real use cases.

edit:

I already found some stupid elementary glitches in my module I will fix soon.

And also as an reply to below: But what about many different videos pasted into one single articel‽ : )

This module doesn't work with URLs with format http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<video-id>, because oembed service doesn't recognize such URLs. I changed in module source the way of building $oembedURL:

$videoID = $matches[2][$key]; 
$oembedURL = "http://www.youtube.com/oembed?url=" . urlencode("http://youtube.com/watch?v=" . $videoID) . "&format=json&maxwidth={$this->maxWidth}&maxheight={$this->maxHeight}";

Hi there,

This has always worked without a hitch, but I'm a bit stumped now. I'm using this for the body field, I have a youtube URL in a paragraph, but I can't get the player to show, just the URL text as is.

I then tried with a Vimeo video, no luck there either, but in that case it creates the TextformatterVideoEmbed div (<div class="TextformatterVideoEmbed"></div>), but the div has no content. I'm running PW 2.6.1 and the latest version of TextformatterVideoEmbed. 

Any idea what's going on here?

Hi @nikoka,

my setup (PW 2.6.10 / TextformatterVideoEmbed 1.0.9) delivers the same effect. Did you find a solution outputting the oembed code?

Cheers, Chris

Hi @inspeCTor,

I'm afraid I didn't, remains a mystery, I haven't had this problem before or after. Spent some time figuring out what could be different with this one installation, but there shouldn't be anything special there.

Please do report if you find some clues, thanks!

Same here. PW 2.6.17 

It still works with my local server, but stopped working on the web server.

That's why I switched to "Hanna Code" for YouTube embeds now.

(I had to, because by using the text editor source-button as a workaround, the HTML Purifier seems to strip out iframes inside of inline editor fields. And I couldn't figure out how to allow this with the HTML Purifier settings.)

Thanks! @kongondo

I already stumbled over this thread and your helpful post.

In my case I couldn't disable the HTML Purifier, because it is mandatory with inline editor fields. 

But I'm happy with the Hanna Code workaround so far. 

P.s. For everyone, who also wants to embed responsive videos manually. You can use the html and style like the video embed module does:

<div class="VideoEmbed" style="position:relative;padding:30px 0 56.25% 0;height:0;overflow:hidden;">
<iframe style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yourvideoidhere" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>
</div>

When I open a page with video embedded, I get this: 

Error: Class 'mysqli' not found (line 23 of /home/gocinet/public_html/wire/core/Database.php) 

Same error when I access the module settings page in the backend.

PW 2.7.0. This only happens on the live server, not on my dev machine. So it seems to be server related.

Any pointers on how to solve this would be great. Thank you.

EDIT: I just discovered that mysqli support is not installed on the live server (godaddy VPS). Installing it should solve the problem.

That error says that you don't have the mysqli php extension installed on the server. I can't see the source for this module right now as Github is down, but I expect it is using mysqli instead of PDO which is what the PW core now uses.

So I am guessing this module needs an update to use PDO. Change any instances of $db to $database. Although I am surprised that this module uses any direct db calls. Are you sure it's actually this module that is the problem?

thank you adrian. I will give the renaming a try.

Yes, I'm sure that it is this module because the error throws only on pages with embedded video and on the settings page for the module in the backend.

The module officially supports PW only up to 2.4. That may be why it is not using PDO. 

EDIT: rnaming $db to $database didn't help.

$db is initialized in the module with

$db = wire('db');

Did you try:

$database = wire('database');

You may also need to modify the sql queries to work with PDO. If you're not familiar with the needed changes, a quick google should get you going :)

Once you get it working, a PR for Ryan might nice :)

I have converted the relevant db query code to PDO and will issue a pull request.

I am having a problem getting this to work inside a repeater.  Is that a known issue?  It is just printing out the url.

I really love the TextformatterVideoEmbed module.

I was wondering, Ryan, if you could modify the module to handle both youtube video id's and youtube playlist id's?

Before I dig into the code on the module, I figured I would ask if you could consider making this an upgrade to the module as it would be very handy. Rather than fork it to a new module, it looks like a simple addition you could make to the 'official' module that would be very beneficial:

A good example, where this is handy, is like on a news site I've built, the reporters may take 3 videos of a two hour county commission meeting and upload them to YouTube and instead of dropping in 3 videos into a news page, they could drop in a youtube playlist.

Thanks a bunch for the consideration!

Hello holmescreek,

With people having such busy schedules these days, why not fork the module & make any necessary changes to your GitHub repository. You don't have to advertise your fork, or even enter it into the module repository. You could, instead, issue a pull request to the original repository so that Ryan could then see how much/little needs to be done to add your change back into the official module. Once the changes get incorporated, it is then just a matter of deleting your GitHub repository.

Best wishes,

Steve

I forked the module to make the module settings maxWidth and maxHeight work in Responsive mode:

https://github.com/rolandtoth/TextformatterVideoEmbed

Basically it adds an extra wrapper div which max-width and max-height inline CSS is set to what you put in module settings. Also the hard-coded 56.25% aspect ratio is calculated from these values.

I have used Ryan's VIDEO EMBED FOR YOUTUBE/VIMEO numerous times in various projects and I always love it. However, I went to install it on a 3.0.15 fresh install, and it is saying it cant install it due to it already existing. Has anyone else run into this before? For the life of me, I can not find it in the database.

I can't seem to get this module to load in the backoffice module section, I downloaded and put it in my module folder, then in the backoffice it does not recognise it? Do I need to change file extion name or? any help would be great!

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      FieldtypeConfigForm.zip
      Edit: 14. August 2018. please delete/uninstall previously downloaded zip

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
