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!

      I've created a small module which lets you define a timestamp after which a page should be accessible. In addition you can define a timestamp when the release should end and the page should not be accessable any more.
      Github: https://github.com/Sebiworld/PageAccessReleasetime
      Usage
      PageAccessReleasetime can be installed like every other module in ProcessWire. Check the following guide for detailed information: How-To Install or Uninstall Modules
      After that, you will find checkboxes for activating the releasetime-fields at the settings-tab of each page. You don't need to add the fields to your templates manually.
      Check e.g. the checkbox "Activate Releasetime from?" and fill in a date in the future. The page will not be accessable for your users until the given date is reached.
      If you have $config->pagefileSecure = true, the module will protect files of unreleased pages as well.
      How it works
      This module hooks into Page::viewable to prevent users to access unreleased pages:
      public function hookPageViewable($event) { $page = $event->object; $viewable = $event->return; if($viewable){ // If the page would be viewable, additionally check Releasetime and User-Permission $viewable = $this->canUserSee($page); } $event->return = $viewable; } To prevent access to the files of unreleased pages, we hook into Page::isPublic and ProcessPageView::sendFile.
      public function hookPageIsPublic($e) { $page = $e->object; if($e->return && $this->isReleaseTimeSet($page)) { $e->return = false; } } The site/assets/files/ directory of pages, which isPublic() returns false, will get a '-' as prefix. This indicates ProcessWire (with activated $config->pagefileSecure) to check the file's permissions via PHP before delivering it to the client.
      The check wether a not-public file should be accessable happens in ProcessPageView::sendFile. We throw an 404 Exception if the current user must not see the file.
      public function hookProcessPageViewSendFile($e) { $page = $e->arguments[0]; if(!$this->canUserSee($page)) { throw new Wire404Exception('File not found'); } } Additionally we hook into ProcessPageEdit::buildForm to add the PageAccessReleasetime fields to each page and move them to the settings tab.
      Limitations
      In the current version, releasetime-protected pages will appear in wire('pages')->find() queries. If you want to display a list of pages, where pages could be releasetime-protected, you should double-check with $page->viewable() wether the page can be accessed. $page->viewable() returns false, if the page is not released yet.
      If you have an idea how unreleased pages can be filtered out of ProcessWire selector queries, feel free to write an issue, comment or make a pull request!

      Thanks to the great Pro module "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use this module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      With this proof of concept I have created a module which adds the feature to copy a repeater item to the clipboard so that you can paste this item to another page with the same repeater field. The module has been developed very rudimentarily so far. It is currently not possible to copy nested items. There is also no check of Min/Max. You can also only copy items that have the same field on different pages. And surely you can solve all this more elegantly with AJAX. But personally I lack the deeper understanding of the repeaters. Also missing on the Javascript side are event triggers for the repeaters, which would make it easier. Like e.g. RepeaterItemInitReady or similar.
      it would be great if @ryan would implement this functionality in the core of RepeaterMatrix. I think he has better ways to implement this. Or what do you think, Ryan?
      Everybody is welcome to work on this module and improve it, if it should not be integrated into the matrix core. Therefore I put it for testing and as download on GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDublicate
      You can best see the functionality in the screencast:

      Hi,
      Please take a look at this:
      https://templatemag.com/demo/Good/
      The upper nav bar, including dropdowns like "pages" and "portfolios", what do you call this whole thing? At first I guess it's called "dropdown nav bar", but seems not.
      AND of course, what's the simplest way/module to achieve this in PW?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey, I'm new and I created a simple module for tagging pages because I didn't found a module for it (sadly this is not a core feature). This module is licensed under the GPL3 and cames with absolutly no warranty at all. You should test the module before using it in production environments. Currently it's an alpha release. if you like the module or have ideas for improvements feel free to post a comment. Currently this fieldtype is only compatible with the Inputfield I've created to because I haven't found  an Inputfield yet, that returns arrays from a single html input.

      Background
      I'm creating a module to integrate https://pushalert.co/ into ProcessWire. You actually don't even need a module. You could just use the "Other Websites" javascript provided by PushAlert for basic functionality, ie send a broadcast notification to all subscribers. This is essentially what all the other integrations, including WordPress, do. The WP integration installs a widget with a form enabling the admin to enter details such as title, message, etc from a blog post. It does not:
      collect any statistics within the CMS about the notification enable audience fine tuning to eg a particular subscriber or subscriber segment within WP. The admin needs to use the PA dashboard for that functionality PushAlert has a javascript and REST API. It's intended that this module will use both. https://pushalert.co/documentation 
      What my module does so far:
      associate a subscription with a user. FE user clicks a button on the website front end to subscribe and/or agrees to the browser popup to accept notifications from this site send broadcast push alerts from a page within admin It doesn't have a 'widget' but easy enough to create a fieldsetpage with the relevant fields and add that fs page to any appropriate templates, then with a hook, send the notification. Need to be careful that once published/sent, the notification is not automatically re-sent on subsequent page edits.
      Looking for help/collaboration on how best:
      to send a notification, eg from a blog post, then track the statistics. Dilemma is that the push notification must come from the admin page. Responses go to the sending page which, as it's an admin page, is restricted and will not accept the https response. This is where the other CMS integrations stop. The only json response from PushAlert is the status, eg 'success', and the notification id. There is no opportunity at this point to capture the sending page id. handle, 'once sent on page publish', do not automatically resend on future page edits Am thinking along the lines that FS Page will have a @kongondo runtime markup field https://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/ to pull the stats from PushAlert. Every time an admin visits the page, the stats will update.
      Once an admin checks the 'Send notification on page publish' checkbox, a hook creates new front end page that records the 'sender page', sends the notification request to PA, which then uses that newly created frontend page, as the response endpoint. Another rook re-associates the front end page with the admin page (eg blog post), to update the stats.
      Potential use cases:
      Notify individual and/or users with a particular role of an event, eg "New work opportunity" for job seekers; new blog post published; entries now open, etc...
      Looking for help/ideas/collaboration on this module. Please let me know if you're interested and as I do, believe this would be a great addition to ProcessWire
