Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)


ryan

Recommended Posts

I’m developing on Localhost (MAMP), never had this problem before. Installed a fresh Processwire, installed TextformatterVideoEmbed, added this to a textarea (CKE), enter YouTube URL, nothing happens.... no error messages, just no formatting. So I wondered if this has to do with latest version 3.0.165?

Just gave it a try and this is the response I get from YouTube when not using HTTPS:

{ "error": { "code": 403, "message": "SSL is required to perform this operation.", "status": "PERMISSION_DENIED" } }

Happens on 3.0.148 as well as 3.0.165.

The way TextformatterVideoEmbed is set is that if it doesn't get a proper response (one with "html" key) it won't do anything, so this is technically expected behaviour. That being said, I don't see any reason why this module should use the HTTP protocol even if the site itself does, and since YouTube no longer seems to allow that it's definitely not the right thing to do.

I've opened an issue for this for @ryanhttps://github.com/ryancramerdesign/TextformatterVideoEmbed/issues/16 🙂

Hi,

@EricS Having the same kind of issue with a current website i'm working on, i've used this one
https://github.com/jacmaes/TextformatterLiteYouTubeEmbed

it works fine if you just need youtube videos to be displayed, incredibly fast and really easy to use
less options than Ryan's one but videos are natively responsive and xith a few css tweaks (Paul Irish lite youtube embed css) it does all i needed

in case it helps
have a nice day

Hi Teppo, thanks for your response! The strange thing is that on version 3.0.148 on my localhost everything works fine! This is the first time I use the latest version. But maybe when it's live (https) it will work... Keep you posted.

Hi Virtualgadjo, thanks for your suggestion! I'll try this one 😉

Have a nice day!

Version shouldn't matter, since this change has occurred on the YouTube side. If neither of these sites is using HTTPS, then I'd suspect that it's a caching thing: Textformatter Video Embed stores embed codes in the database, so if that other site has fetched the code via HTTP while it was still possible, it'll continue to work until you clear said cache from the database.

Google has in the past also deprecated features in weird ways, so that they've kept working for existing sites/domains but not for new ones, though I doubt that'd be the case here 🙂

Hi Teppo, you were completely right (of course ;-)). The module is working fine on HTTPS! Thanks.

In the latest version 2.0.1 from April 9, the padding-bottom {pct} variable sometimes results in an invalid CSS value, like 56,25% (with comma)

This value should be locale independent, so please use an intval or use forced dot notation in the calculation. Thanks

Anyone seeing issues with the generated thumbnail for vimeo-based embedded videos?   Currently just getting a stripy image back from vimeo no matter what video is embedded. Pressing play works - the video is streamed and played without issue, it's just the thumbnail from vimeo that's the problem. Looks like this...

I think this relates to a problem at the video/Vimeo end rather than a problem with the textformatter module. The post below suggests that the stripes thumbnail is what appears when Vimeo fails to successfully generate a thumbnail for a video:

I contacted vimeo support and this is what they told me:

Quote
My name is xxx and I'm stepping in for the Vimeo team today.
 
I'm very sorry for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.
 
We recently made an update to our security protocols that included all thumbnails in videos. This was intended to be a non-breaking change across the platform but in cases like yours where links were hardcoded, we were not able to seamlessly update to the new image link structure. 
 
You will need to update your current workflow/codebase to reflect these new changes. Please review our documentation on initiating an API call to GET the thumbnail of a specific video from the Vimeo servers. Additionally our API allows you to GET the thumbnails for all your videos. (ex. https://api.vimeo.com/me/videos?fields=uri,name,pictures). You can use additional parameters listed on our developer page to specify the results you need
 
While we do not expect the updated thumbnail links to change in the near term, our engineers recommend implementing this regularly instead of caching the video thumbnail URLs and also recommend batching these calls if possible, which will be more efficient. 
 
I understand this change alters what’s required for your application and your workflow as a whole. Our team is committed to finding solutions that allow you to maximize your usage of Vimeo to deliver the highest quality experience for your customers. To that, please do let me know if you have any other questions or if there’s anything else I can do to help.

Sincerely,
xxx

So apparently the TextformatterVideoEmbedLazy module needs some adapting.

I have attached that file, does anybody know what to change in there?

Thanks

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      Screencasts
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
