Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

Recommended Posts

Same here with chrome, I think it is tinymce that is adding the link.

Hi! Is it possible to return the videoID from the module's output? Would come in handy when trying to generate Youtube/Vimeo thumbnails for my template.

Not sure that I understand where it would return to. Can you provide more detail? Textformatter modules happen behind the scenes and manipulate the text directly, rather than returning anything. That's why I'm not sure I understand the question.

---Edit:

Thinking more, it does have the video ID at one point in the module, so you could modify the module to make it insert thumbnails as part of the text formatting it does. This is probably the way I would approach it at least.

Just a note if you are wanting YouTube to be responsive (which it is not out of the can)

Then I stole this from http://avexdesigns.com/responsive-youtube-embed/

Add this css somewhere:

.video-container {
    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 56.25%;
    padding-top: 30px; height: 0; overflow: hidden;
}

.video-container iframe,
.video-container object,
.video-container embed {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
}
 
The do this to your poor body block:
 
<div class="video-container"><?php echo $page->body; ?></div>

Obviously this probably only works neatly with just ONE video!

Hmmm ... perhaps an alternative module-field type that is just a text box might be a good idea for this.

@Joss, so far I know that css code is injected inline in the output of the embed tag if you checked the responsive option in the TextformatterVideoEmbed settings.

There is one?

Oh, I will go look

Interesting set of errors in chrome, by the way, which seems to object to the iframe:

Unsafe JavaScript attempt to access frame with URL

I gather this is a common Chrome problem, however.



Oh yeah!!! :)

Okay, scrub my previous post.

About the errors, thats normal. Google allows all kind of advertisement scripts and other bandwidth eating scripts to access the iframe.

A nuisance with me though - I always have to wade through the list of errors I create myself; I don't need chrome adding to my woes. :)

Is there any way of making this work outside of a tinyMCE or equivalent field, ideally a plain text field or if not a standard textarea field?

I gather this is meant more for on the fly inclusion of videos within textareas but I'm looking for something specifically for a video template.

In the past I've got them to find the embed code and I've factored that into my templates but the url would be easier! :)

Just in case this is of help, I use this code from Ryan to turn a YT URL in it's own paragraph into an embedded  YT vid.

Thanks Alan, will take a look but I think this approach is what has now been turned into this module. I think what I'm almost after is a youtube or vimeo fieldtype so I don't have to present the client with a tinyMCE field to put his url in.

There's a ton of controls you can call on depending on the code you use to embed. It's ages since I looked but I Googled and dev pages on youtube.com had lots of advice, so I am guessing that, especially with the rise of HTML5 will be the place to go to get the appropriate embed to establish HTML5 over Flash as a pref'.

Thanks Alan, I'm using the module at the moment so not sure if there is a preference in there that affects it.

You can use the module in a text field also, but because it will look for <p> tags around the video, make sure you also choose textile or markdown before the video formatter on that same field. It works, but it's a lot of unnecessary processing for something that simple.

Or you could do this without a module. Just create a video ID field, and embed the video like this

echo "<iframe width='560' height='315' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/{$page->videoID_field}'></iframe>";

If you want to control some aspects of the player add as many of these parameters as you wish to the video url https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters

echo "<iframe width='560' height='315' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/{$page->video_id}?autoplay=1&theme=light'></iframe>";

And if you want, those parameters can be dynamic:

echo "<iframe width='560' height='315' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/{$page->video_id}?autoplay={$page->video_autoplay}&theme={$page->video_theme}'></iframe>";

Thanks Diogo.

The end user would just find the video id and paste that in? That's sort of what I was doing with the embed codes, just thought the url would be easier for them but if it's just the number bit, probably OK.

Thanks for the tip about the text fields, I may try the module on that!

Mediaelement looks pretty cool, I actually have a use for this on another project and am glad to find out about it. I need to take a closer look to determine if this is something that fits the URL-to-embed code purpose of the module without stepping over the line on front-end dev. But it certainly fits with the name and purpose of the module.

Modal popups are a good idea, but things that might be better in one's front-end development rather than in a text formatting module, given that they are more site/need specific and involve linking to local javascript files and such. These common YouTube/Vimeo video embeds are pretty much universal to the point where one almost expects one of their URLs to convert to a player, so that's what the purpose is here. And that's the most likely way this module would grow (adding more services). Still, this module may be a good starting point for branching in less universal, more site specific needs, and I'd encourage extending it like that.

Dear Ryan, like user interrobang, I also have self hosted videos on my Linux server and I'm interested to try your module.

All my self hosted videos have the same URL structure: http://my.internal.server/streaming/videos/name-of-the-video

(where "name-of-the-video" changes every time). Hoy could I tweak your "TextformatterVideoEmbed.module" in order to use it with this type of URL?

I'm not a php coder, so I'm quite scary about tweaking your code.

Regards!

I'm not really sure how this module could be tweaked for local videos, as it's built around oembed, so really more about web services than local hosting. I think that the best solution for local video hosting will depend largely on what player you want to use to display the videos.

Yes Ryan, you're right. I'm using the phpmotion.com platform (a youtube-clone) on a local linux server, to upload videos and convert them.

Like youtube, also phpmotion provide both the link and the embedding html structrure.

Currently I'm simply using the HTML embed into a textearea field, but I was wondering if there's any way to pass the link and automatically build the embedding structure.

An example:

generated internal link: 

http://myserver/videos/title
 

and its standard embedding structure (tweakable):

<embed src="http://myserver/player.swf" width="320" height="256" bgcolor="FFFFFF" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="false" flashvars="flvsource=http://myserver/uploads/PZDBCClXAP0td1rgBPqE.flv&preview_image=http://myserver/uploads/player_thumbs/PZDBCClXAP0td1rgBPqE.jpg&backgcolor=FFFFFF&autoplay=true&url_logo=http://myserver/images/playerlogos/logo-player.png&logo=top_right&floating_navbar=false&color_nav_bar_top=0x478dc2&color_nav_bar_bottom=0xE7EBEC&ads_background_color=0x00CCFF&ads_border_color=0xCCCCCC&scrubber_position_color=0x6AA1CE&scrubber_load_color=0x888888&scrubber_background_color=0xBBBBBB&volume_bar_color=0xBBBBBB&aspect_ratio=stretch"></embed>
 

Probably it's not possible, because of the source (random_name.flv).

Thank you! Regards.

What do you mean the source is random? On the embed code above, you are refering to this "PZDBCClXAP0td1rgBPqE.flv"?

Yes, the embedding code is generated by phpmotion. It's really a good platform, but probably there's no way to make the embedding automatic.

But that's the name of the vídeo on the url, right? You have access to that code from the url to put it on a field in the admin, I guess.

If so, It would be enough to have a normal text field where you put that code without the extension, and have the embedding code on the template:

echo '<embed src="http://myserver/player.swf" width="320" height="256" bgcolor="FFFFFF" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="false" flashvars="flvsource=http://myserver/uploads/' . $page->video_code .

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "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 a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate a repeater item from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

      A community member raised a question and I thought a new sanitizer method for the purpose would be useful, hence...
      Sanitizer Transliterate
      Adds a transliterate method to $sanitizer that performs character replacements as defined in the module config. The default character replacements are based on the defaults from InputfieldPageName, but with uppercase characters included too.
      Usage
      Install the Sanitizer Transliterate module.
      Customise the character replacements in the module config as needed.
      Use the sanitizer on strings like so:
      $transliterated_string = $sanitizer->transliterate($string);

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version to 2.10, add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.

      I created a little helper module to trigger a CI pipeline when your website has been changed. It's quite simple and works like this: As soon as you save a page the module sets a Boolean via a pages save after hook. Once a day via LazyCron the module checks if the Boolean is set and sends a POST Request to a configurable Webhook URL.
      Some ideas to extend this:
      make request type configurable (GET, POST) make the module trigger at a specified time (probably only possible with a server cronjob) trigger manually Anything else? If there's interest, I might put in some more functionality. Let me know what you're interested in. Until then, maybe it is useful for a couple of people 🙂

      I created this module a while ago and never got around to publicising it, but it has been outed in the latest PW Weekly so here goes the support thread...
      Unique Image Variations
      Ensures that all ImageSizer options and focus settings affect image variation filenames.

      Background
      When using methods that produce image variations such as Pageimage::size(), ProcessWire includes some of the ImageSizer settings (height, width, cropping location, etc) in the variation filename. This is useful so that if you change these settings in your size() call a new variation is generated and you see this variation on the front-end.
      However, ProcessWire does not include several of the other ImageSizer settings in the variation filename:
      upscaling cropping, when set to false or a blank string interlace sharpening quality hidpi quality focus (whether any saved focus area for an image should affect cropping) focus data (the top/left/zoom data for the focus area) This means that if you change any of these settings, either in $config->imageSizerOptions or in an $options array passed to a method like size(), and you already have variations at the requested size/crop, then ProcessWire will not create new variations and will continue to serve the old variations. In other words you won't see the effect of your changed ImageSizer options on the front-end until you delete the old variations.
      Features
      The Unique Image Variations module ensures that any changes to ImageSizer options and any changes to the focus area made in Page Edit are reflected in the variation filename, so new variations will always be generated and displayed on the front-end.
      Installation
      Install the Unique Image Variations module.
      In the module config, set the ImageSizer options that you want to include in image variation filenames.
      Warnings
      Installing the module (and keeping one or more of the options selected in the module config) will cause all existing image variations to be regenerated the next time they are requested. If you have an existing website with a large number of images you may not want the performance impact of that. The module is perhaps best suited to new sites where image variations have not yet been generated.
      Similarly, if you change the module config settings on an existing site then all image variations will be regenerated the next time they are requested.
      If you think you might want to change an ImageSizer option in the future (I'm thinking here primarily of options such as interlace that are typically set in $config->imageSizerOptions) and would not want that change to cause existing image variations to be regenerated then best to not include that option in the module config after you first install the module.
