Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

Recommended Posts

If phpmotion.com supports oembed, then it is feasible for TextformatterVideoEmbed to support it in the same way as YouTube/Vimeo.

It depends on what you want to do exactly. 

Because the module converts a Youtube link that is in an RTE texatarea field, you already know the id of the video because it is in the link. You could easily insert the image link using the url schema from that first link I posted.

Maybe if you can explain your usage scenario we can help more. Where you do want to display the image? How is it connected to the embedded link.

It is easy to grab the id of the video from the link in either PHP or JS using a regex, but the video module also stores the id in the PW database (in the textformatter_video_embed table), so this might also be an option depending on your needs.

EDIT: Here is the function in the module that parses the video url:

https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/TextformatterVideoEmbed/blob/master/TextformatterVideoEmbed.module#L127

Or you can use:

$url = "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4kxS1ksqtw&feature=relate";
parse_str( parse_url( $url, PHP_URL_QUERY ), $my_array_of_vars );
echo $my_array_of_vars['v'];    
  // Output: C4kxS1ksqtw

Ok, so it sounds like you are manually adding the thumbnail image to an RTE? Maybe you don't really need the video embed module, because you don't actually want the video to play inside the RTE field?

There are lots of ways to go about this. You could use a regex in your template. You could make your own module. You could maybe use the Hanna Code module (http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-hanna-code/) and just enter the video ID and use that to output the thumbnail and link to open in fancybox.

You could even use JS to modify the link.

An example of your exact usage would really help to narrow down the best approach.

i just did what u said, i dropped the module, now from admin panel i just enter the url for youtube movie and then i do this :

<?php
    $videoFolder = $pages->find('parent=1051, limit=3');
    $out ="";
        foreach($videoFolder as $videoItem){
            $vidUrl = $videoItem->video;
            parse_str( parse_url( $vidUrl, PHP_URL_QUERY ), $my_array_of_vars );
            $imgUrl = $my_array_of_vars['v'];
            $search     = '/youtube\.com\/watch\?v=([a-zA-Z0-9]+)/smi';
            $replace    = "youtube.com/embed/$1?autoplay=1";
            $vidUrl = preg_replace($search,$replace,$vidUrl);
            $out .= "<div>";
            $out .= "<a class='fancybox' data-fancybox-type='iframe' href='{$vidUrl}'><img src='http://img.youtube.com/vi/{$imgUrl}/0.jpg' alt='{$videoItem->title}' /></a>";
            $out .= "<div class='name'><a href='{$vidUrl}'>{$fotoItem->title}</a></div>";
            $out .= "</div> ";
        }
        echo $out;
 ?>

And thats it i got my video working :)
Ty alot Adrian u ware most helpful

Glad you got it working.

The $videoItem->video makes me think you are storing the URL for the video in a dedicated field? If that's the case, you shouldn't need to do that preg_replace. You already have the id from $my_array_of_vars['v'] so you should be able to just build the embed version directly from that.

			$out .= "<div class='name'><a href='http://www.youtube.com/embed/{$vidID}?autoplay=1'>{$videoItem->title}</a></div>";
			$out .= "</div> ";
		}
		echo $out;
 ?>

Just noticed that if you copypaste youtube url from Chrome (Win7) addressbar into CKeditor, it will be transformed into <a> tag and therefor embedding doesn't work. I don't know how CKeditor does that, since if you copypaste it from another source (like text editor), it will not be transformed into a link. 

Possible solution could be allowing links also transformed into a embed. What do you think?

It might just be a matter of the forum using an older version of CKEditor (3 vs 4). Does it work if you do an unformatted paste? i.e. shift+ctrl+v ? Though I'd have no problem making it support the videos as links, but it seems like that then creates a problem where you actually want to link to a video (as opposed to embedding it). If someone puts the link in it's own paragraph, maybe it's safe to assume they are trying to embed though. Especially if the anchor text matches the src attribute.

Hi all, 

I have an issue with the module.

It works fine for me under all browsers apart from Firefox(Win 7) - I've updated to version 26.0, from 24.*;

However I still get only a black box. I can see the code, exactly the same as under Chrome/Safari/Opera, but it doesn't work.

Any ideas what could be causing the problem ? 

p.s. I get no errors with Firebug.

Is it possible your browser doesn't have the necessary plugins to display videos (Flash, etc.) or has some kind of blocker installed? I know with my copy of Firefox, both are the case (no flash, and everything external blocked... but it was intentionally configured that way).

Is there any way I can call that youtube ID part from template using this module?

Youtube uses these urls:

http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/0.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/1.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/2.jpg
http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/3.jpg

to give us pre-generated thumbnails, so it would be great if I could use thumbnails on my front page as a preview, which leads to full page with properly embeded video.

@Ryan: fantastic Module. I have used it the first time now on a site for a colleague.

There is one thing I want to ask if it could be possible:

With the param rel=0 added to the $embedCode  $queryString (e.g. ?feature=oembed&rel=0) the video gets reset to the first frame of it after playing, - instead of displaying a lot of thumbs to other videos.

On some pages / sites it looks much better this way.

Can this be added to the module? (maybe as option, or default?)

Horst, it should already support the rel=0 option for video embedding (at least it used to). Try adding it to the YouTube URL you are embedding. If it doesn't work, go to the module settings and clear the video cache and try again.

Ryan, unfortunately it doesn't work. (have flushed the DB)
 
My url is


and the resulting code in DB is

video_id = oUdcc7fYlp8?rel=0

embed_code = <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/oUdcc7fYlp8?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The rel=0 doesn't make it into the embedded code. ??

Fixed an issue with embedding in secure pages. YouTube's oembed service doesn't return https urls, even if the feed url is https.

Change line 86 to:

$embedCode = str_replace('http','https',$data['html']);

Hi Guys!

A question for you gents...

Is it possible to modify the module such that it automatically adds  &rel=0  to all our YouTube video urls that we enter?

Been trying to plug it in into various parts of the module but I can't seem to get it to work.

It would save having to type in $rel=0 every single time I add a video.

Cheers guys!

After you installed the Textformatter, go to /site/modules/TextformatterVideoEmbed.module

add a line in the methode embedYoutube:

// line number +/- 145
$queryString = isset($matches[3][$key]) ? $matches[3][$key] : '';
$queryString = $queryString . "&rel=0"; // this is the new line you should add

---

If you make modifications to this module, it's better to rename the module and the file and install it again. This to insures updates won't delete your modifications

      DEPRECATED
      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      ---
      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.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that? 
    • By adrian
      Hi everyone,
      Here's a new module that I have been meaning to build for a long time.
      http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-admin-actions/
      https://github.com/adrianbj/ProcessAdminActions
       
      What does it do?
      Do you have a bunch of admin snippets laying around, or do you recreate from them from scratch every time you need them, or do you try to find where you saw them in the forums, or on the ProcessWire Recipes site?
      Admin Actions lets you quickly create actions in the admin that you can use over and over and even make available to your site editors (permissions for each action are assigned to roles separately so you have full control over who has access to which actions).
       
      Included Actions
      It comes bundled with several actions and I will be adding more over time (and hopefully I'll get some PRs from you guys too). You can browse and sort and if you have @tpr's Admin on Steroid's datatables filter feature, you can even filter based on the content of all columns. 

      The headliner action included with the module is: PageTable To RepeaterMatrix which fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field. This is a huge timesaver if you have an existing site that makes heavy use of PageTable fields and you would like to give the clients the improved interface of RepeaterMatrix.
      Copy Content To Other Field
      This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template.
      Copy Field Content To Other Page
      Copies the content from a field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Repeater Items To Other Page
      Add the items from a Repeater field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Table Field Rows To Other Page
      Add the rows from a Table field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Create Users Batcher
      Allows you to batch create users. This module requires the Email New User module and it should be configured to generate a password automatically.
      Delete Unused Fields
      Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.
      Delete Unused Templates
      Deletes templates that are not used by any pages.
      Email Batcher
      Lets you email multiple addresses at once.
      Field Set Or Search And Replace
      Set field values, or search and replace text in field values from a filtered selection of pages and fields.
      FTP Files to Page
      Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.
      Page Active Languages Batcher
      Lets you enable or disable active status of multiple languages on multiple pages at once.
      Page Manipulator
      Uses an InputfieldSelector to query pages and then allows batch actions on the matched pages.
      Page Table To Repeater Matrix
      Fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field.
      Template Fields Batcher
      Lets you add or remove multiple fields from multiple templates at once.
      Template Roles Batcher
      Lets you add or remove access permissions, for multiple roles and multiple templates at once.
      User Roles Permissions Batcher
      Lets you add or remove permissions for multiple roles, or roles for multiple users at once.
       
      Creating a New Action
      If you create a new action that you think others would find useful, please add it to the actions subfolder of this module and submit a PR. If you think it is only useful for you, place it in /site/templates/AdminActions/ so that it doesn't get lost on module updates.
      A new action file can be as simple as this:
      class UnpublishAboutPage extends ProcessAdminActions { protected function executeAction() { $p = $this->pages->get('/about/'); $p->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished); $p->save(); return true; } } Each action:
      class must extend "ProcessAdminActions" and the filename must match the class name and end in ".action.php" like: UnpublishAboutPage.action.php the action method must be: executeAction() As you can see there are only a few lines needed to wrap the actual API call, so it's really worth the small extra effort to make an action.
      Obviously that example action is not very useful. Here is another more useful one that is included with the module. It includes $description, $notes, and $author variables which are used in the module table selector interface. It also makes use of the defineOptions() method which builds the input fields used to gather the required options before running the action.
      class DeleteUnusedFields extends ProcessAdminActions { protected $description = 'Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.'; protected $notes = 'Shows a list of unused fields with checkboxes to select those to delete.'; protected $author = 'Adrian Jones'; protected $authorLinks = array( 'pwforum' => '985-adrian', 'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones', 'github' => 'adrianbj', ); protected function defineOptions() { $fieldOptions = array(); foreach($this->fields as $field) { if ($field->flags & Field::flagSystem || $field->flags & Field::flagPermanent) continue; if(count($field->getFieldgroups()) === 0) $fieldOptions[$field->id] = $field->label ? $field->label . ' (' . $field->name . ')' : $field->name; } return array( array( 'name' => 'fields', 'label' => 'Fields', 'description' => 'Select the fields you want to delete', 'notes' => 'Note that all fields listed are not used by any templates and should therefore be safe to delete', 'type' => 'checkboxes', 'options' => $fieldOptions, 'required' => true ) ); } protected function executeAction($options) { $count = 0; foreach($options['fields'] as $field) { $f = $this->fields->get($field); $this->fields->delete($f); $count++; } $this->successMessage = $count . ' field' . _n('', 's', $count) . ' ' . _n('was', 'were', $count) . ' successfully deleted'; return true; } }  
      This defineOptions() method builds input fields that look like this:

      Finally we use $options array in the executeAction() method to get the values entered into those options fields to run the API script to remove the checked fields.
      There is one additional method that I didn't outline called: checkRequirements() - you can see it in action in the PageTableToRepeaterMatrix action. You can use this to prevent the action from running if certain requirements are not met.
      At the end of the executeAction() method you can populate $this->successMessage, or $this->failureMessage which will be returned after the action has finished.
       
      Populating options via URL parameters
      You can also populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a “|” character.
      You can either just pre-populate options:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/options?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add
      or you can execute immediately:
      http://mysite.dev/processwire/setup/admin-actions/execute?action=TemplateFieldsBatcher&templates=29|56&fields=219&addOrRemove=add

      Note the “options” vs “execute” as the last path before the parameters.
       
      Automatic Backup / Restore
      Before any action is executed, a full database backup is automatically made. You have a few options to run a restore if needed:
      Follow the Restore link that is presented after an action completes Use the "Restore" submenu: Setup > Admin Actions > Restore Move the restoredb.php file from the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder to the root of your site and load in the browser Manually restore using the AdminActionsBackup.sql file in the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder I think all these features make it very easy to create custom admin data manipulation methods that can be shared with others and executed using a simple interface without needing to build a full Process Module custom interface from scratch. I also hope it will reduce the barriers for new ProcessWire users to create custom admin functionality.
      Please let me know what you think, especially if you have ideas for improving the interface, or the way actions are defined.

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Functional
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The data-attributes (data-type and data-category) are required to get recognized by PrivacyWire. the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button>  
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG
      You can find the always up-to-date changelog file here.
    • By joshua
      As we often use Matomo (former known as Piwik) instead of Google Analytics we wanted to embed Matomo not only in the template code but also via the ProcessWire backend.
      That's why I developed a tiny module for the implementation.
      The module provides the possibility to connect to an existing Matomo installation with the classical site tracking and also via the Matomo Tag Manager.
      If you have also PrivacyWire installed, you can tell MatomoWire to only load the script, if the user has accepted cookies via PrivacyWire.
      To offer an Opt-Out solution you can choose between the simple Opt-Out iFrame, delivered by your Matomo installation, or a button to choose cookies via PrivacyWire.
      You'll find the module both in the module directory and via github:
      ProcessWire Module Directory MatomoWire @ GitHub MatomoWire @ Packagist ->installable via composer require blauequelle/matomowire I'm looking forward to hear your feedback!
