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.

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

      Hey folks,
      for a module (a pagebuilder based on PageTable) I need to save some settings as JSON. The values are saved for each page table item (a pw page). It's working well, but I am looking for ways to improve the structure I have. As I'm not that experienced with JSON, maybe someone more experienced can take a look and tell me if my approach is good practice. 

      My goal is to make all the items accessible by page id, without looping over them (using objects instead of arrays):
      // access from template with pw page var $jsonObject->items->{$page}->cssClass; Her is an example of my JSON structure:
      { "items": { "3252": { "id": "3252", "cssClass": "pgrid-main", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "auto", "grid-row-end": "auto", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "60px", "padding-right": "60px", "padding-top": "60px", "padding-bottom": "60px", "background-color": "rgb(255, 255, 255)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3686": { "id": "3686", "cssClass": "test_global", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "-1", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "1", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3687": { "id": "3687", "cssClass": "block_editor-3687", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3696": { "id": "3696", "cssClass": "block_editor-3696", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } } }, "breakpointActive": "base", "breakpointActiveSize": "@media (min-width: 576px)" }

      Fieldtype Page Table Grid
      This is a sneak preview of a side project I've been working on for quite some time now. A lot of work and thought has gone into this, so I will most likely release this as a commercial module at some point in the near future. 

      As a designer (and developer) I get the appeal of a WYSIWYG editor. After playing around with some WYSIWYG page builder tools, I always felt something was wrong about them. So I decided to build my own PW version based on PageTable.

      Here is a small demo (using AdminThemeCanvas, but its working with other admin themes as well) :
      There is also a complete website that I built for a friend of mine using this module and some custom blocks.
      Concept
      This fieldtype shares a lot of features with PageTableExtended: it's also an extension of PageTable and renders the block templates in the backend and frontend (native PW templates and fields). You can also add your own css via module settings.
      The difference is, this fieldtype also gives you the ability to rearrange and resize elements in a visual way as well as enable inline editing for text, ckeditor and file fields. Similar (and promising) attempts have been made, but I wanted something based on native CSS grid instead of a CSS framework...so I built my own version. Most CSS frameworks are based on flexbox, which is great for layouting elements horizontally. With CSS grid, you can place elements horizontally and vertically, allowing for layouts that were not previously possible with CSS. Similar to webflow, this fieldtype uses javascript (in the backend) to let you manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them). It should still be possible to include a CSS framework if you like (just add the classes to your block markup and include the CSS via module settings).
      The CSS grid layout manipulations are saved in a single field as a JSON array and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you simply include in your main template (no inline styles). The styles are saved within the breakpoint you select and cascade down to smaller breakpoints. That means you can specify just the basic breakpoint and adjust other breakpoints if needed. The exception is the mobile breakpoint which will display everything in one column as a default (you can change the layout here too).
      The fieldtype also comes with an optional style panel to manipulate some additional CSS properties directly on the page. You can customize the panel or disable it completely from the module settings (and just use a CSS file that you include via module settings). The style panel is based on inputfields (nothing is saved to the database). This means that you just have to install the module and all fields are available to all blocks automatically (this can be customized). It also has the benefit that your installation is not flooded with fields; this module only installs one field.
      Don't want to give your customer all that power? Design features can be disabled for certain roles. The grid editor role can just edit the content and use the inline editing feature to edit content quickly. You can then also grant access individually to the style panel, resize or drag functionality.
      Features
      Blocks are just pages Blocks are defined by native PW templates and fields Manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them) Design features can be disabled for certain roles Inline editing of text, ckeditor and file fields The layout is 100% CSS grid (very small css file size) Simply drag and resize to manipulate grid items directly inside the backend Manipulate grid columns and rows directly on the page (use any number of columns you want) All style manipulations are saved as JSON and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you just include in your main template (no inline styles) Nested groups/grids (child pages of nested blocks are created under group parent) Global blocks work with page reference field (changes on one page, changes all blocks on all pages) Manual and auto placement of grid items Define custom icons for your blocks via native template settings (template -> advanced -> icon) Option to load lazysizes in the backend to enable lazy loading of assets with class lazyload Works with all default and ui-kit based admin themes If you have any questions or feedback, let me know.

      I built this module because I needed a versatile solution to replace tags and simple if-blocks in some E-Mails and PDF documents.
      If you only need to replace static tags (no if-conditions), then you can use default PW api and need no module:
      $str = "My favourite color is {color}."; $texttools = $sanitizer->getTextTools(); echo $texttools->populatePlaceholders($str, ['color' => 'red']); // output: My favourite color is red. Usage:
      See the two example Files in the folder /replacements

       
      Methods:
      replacementsTable()
      Renders an overview of all available replacements (see the example in the Module's config file:
       
      Create new Replacements:
      Simply copy the sample file and adopt to your needs.

      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.

      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?
