Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

Recommended Posts

Antti, I was able to reproduce that and have fixed it. Thanks for finding it. The last pull request broke the preg_match index association and I didn't catch it. :)

Hi Ryan, when did you update the module to fix the repeating vid problem? I downloaded this module at 11:30 am EST and I'm having the same problem as Apeisa. If you updated it seconds after my DL finished I can re download. Weird coincidence on the timing.

@digitex, update hasn't been pushed to GitHub yet -- I should know, since it was my pull request that broke this before, terribly sorry for that!

Just opened a pull request with a fix for this problem, just in case. If you need to make the fix locally you can review required changes here:

@teppo, no worries. It's funny how Apeisa and I both ran into the same problem on the same day.

thanks for the link, it's all fixed up at my end.

I know that I pushed this update yesterday right when I wrote my message. But look what was waiting for me in my shell window when I just now checked:

[rytower]$ git push origin master

Username:

I typed in the push and just assumed it went through yesterday, as it always does. Then moved onto the next thing. For some reason GitHub is prompting me for a username (didn't expect that). Anyway, I just typed it in now so hopefully it should be online finally. :)

I have a video embedded a youtube with this module. At the end of the video youtube displays related videos. Can this be changed? The customer just wants to stop the video, without displaying any related videos.

Normally you can add "rel=0" to the embed url, but I don't know how to change this in the module.

Good point. I second this. I tried adding ?rel=0 to the embed url and it breaks it and just displays the link as text. Currently at the end of the vids it shows some pretty unrelated and annoying, so called "related" items.

I've been experimenting with this by including the "rel=0" in the oEmbed call, but apparently YouTube ignores it. It looks to me like they don't support specification of this option with oEmbed, though if anyone can figure out how to do it I'll be happy to integrate it.

What does it add the rel=0 to? The URL in the iframe tag I'm assuming, but thought I'd tried this... Anyway, if this works, we might want to support other options too. What other worthwhile GET variables can be specified to youtube?

This is the embed code from youtube:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/YsCpDaSooWA?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

So it does go into url in iFrame tag.

I think only other relevant option might be privacy mode. This is the embed code for privacy mode and no for related videos combined:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/YsCpDaSooWA?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I've pushed an update to this module so that it now recognizes any youtube query string variable. So you can use rel=0 or whatever you want from the link that Diogo posted. To use it, just append them to your youtube in your body copy, i.e.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl4XiYadV_k&rel=0

Note the extra "rel=0" at the end. Of course, you can also specify multiple things too:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl4XiYadV_k&rel=0&controls=0

Diogo, that's a good one to know about, thanks. That one should work too as it's not detecting specific options but rather pulling the entire query string out of the URL and then packaging it back up into the iframe embed code that youtube provides. Once I saw all the options on the page you linked, I figured that was the only way to go.

Ok. What am I doing wrong? I downloaded the new update, replaced it on the server and now all I get is the link as text on the page. I uninstalled everything so that I could reinstall from scratch and it's still not working.

I went back to the previous version I got originally (v 1.0.1) and it started working again. So I tried to upgrade again with the updated version and it broke. I don't know what's causing it.

Digitex, I think I found the issue. Please try the latest update and it should work now.

Sorry Ryan. I hate to be a pain but the new update fixes the video embed...until I add the ?rel=0 to the link. That breaks it again. If it's now working for interrobang then maybe the problem is something else particular to my server configuration.

For YouTube, you would actually be adding "&rel=0", not "?rel=0", i.e.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl4XiYadV_k&rel=0

This works here. Is it possible that you used '?' rather than '&' ? If not, please post the exact URL that doesn't work.

Turns out that is the case. I was going by the youtube embed code from the site which would use a URL that looks like this:

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Wl4XiYadV_k?rel=0

But using &rel=0 is correct and works. Thanks for the correction.

The TextformatterVideoEmbed module has been updated to support responsive embed codes. To enable, grab the latest version (v1.0.4) go to the module configuration screen and check the responsive box. Now when your videos are embedded, they will be output in a width-flexible format that adjusts to the container.

I had a bizarre report today from someone using this module. She copied and pasted the embed code into the body field, like I showed her how to do, and it rendered as a link. In other words the anchor tag was added automatically turning

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-AMV7yAiAo&rel=0

into

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-AMV7yAiAo&rel=0">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-AMV7yAiAo&rel=0</a>

When her husband tried using Safari on a mac, no problem, but when she does it on, I think, Vista or XP using IE7 (I know I know some people just don't like to upgrade) she gets the above.

Anyone else ever see this happen?

Are there any other textformatters enabled on this 'body' field?

Where was it copied/pasted from? If you copy and paste something that is an HTML link from one window and paste it into a TinyMCE field, then the link will be retained. It's possible that IE7 inserts the <a> tag around an URL copied from its address bar? If that's the case, she could either click the 'remove link' icon after pasting it on, or paste the link into Notepad, and then copy it out of there before pasting into TinyMCE (which should render it plain text).

She emailed me her process which is the same approach I took and the same as her husband:

Opened up the desired video on Youtube.

Clicked "share".

selected and copied the URL that showed up directly below.

Logged in to my editing page.

Selected "video"

Selected "edit"

Scrolled down past "title", "headline", "summary", to "body"

Put my cursor at the end of the previous line of text

hit return

hit Ctrl v to paste

She then reported her husband tried again using the same method and it worked fine just as it did for him the first time he tried. She knows that it's something on her computer/browser. Clicking "remove link" is something i didn't think to tell her but that's good advice.

Just curious if anyone else has seen this and can confirm it's the browser doing it. Frankly I don't think it's a good idea to backwards engineer a module to be compatible with a browser as old and s****y as IE7, far better to encourage people to upgrade. If that's the problem.

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) image names are fully searchable through the API orphaned references to images that get deleted are automatically removed. When you delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, all pages that use this fieldtype will be searched. If any page contains a reference to the image you just deleted, that reference will be reset. You will get warning messages to edit those pages and add new image references there. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.
