Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

Recommended Posts

Agreed with Martijn, that's probably better in most (if not all) cases. If you really want to use this module, something like this should work too:

if ($page->your_field) {
    $value = "<p>" . $page->your_field . "</p>";
    $modules->get('TextformatterVideoEmbed')->format($value);
    if (strpos($value, "<p>") !== 0) echo $value;
}

Only benefits of that approach would be having a common way to present videos on your site, and using oEmbed instead of relying on your own case-by-case embed codes. Other than that, I don't really see much value in it :)

The other option would be to change the regex in the module. This is what I use in Get Video Thumbs and it works fine with plain text (URL) and Textarea fields:

/\s*(?:http(?:s)?:\/\/)?(?:www\.)?(?:youtu\.be\/|youtube\.com\/(??:watch)?\?(?:.*&)?v(?:i)?=|(?:embed|v|vi|user)\/))([^\?#&\"'<>]+)/

That said, I agree with Martijn's approach :)

Hi everyone, 

I wrote, after install module and format Video embed in details.

Could I write a php line to see video on my browser page of Processwire?

Like:

. . .

<div class="video-container"><?php echo $page->video_field->url; ?></div>
. . .
 
Thanks

Don't use the formatter. Why not simply use:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="<?php echo $page->your_field; ?>" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> 

But that doesn't help much with inline Videos which are put somewhere, whereever in whatever textarea?

Unless in combination with Hanna Code ... !

Btw. I made this module to be able to adjust some youtube embed options (my very first module btw.) ... https://github.com/blynx/TextformatterVideoEmbedOptions

Not super useful - but for now it works in my project. I am thinking about how to make this thing actually useful considering real use cases.

edit:

I already found some stupid elementary glitches in my module I will fix soon.

And also as an reply to below: But what about many different videos pasted into one single articel‽ : )

This module doesn't work with URLs with format http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<video-id>, because oembed service doesn't recognize such URLs. I changed in module source the way of building $oembedURL:

$videoID = $matches[2][$key]; 
$oembedURL = "http://www.youtube.com/oembed?url=" . urlencode("http://youtube.com/watch?v=" . $videoID) . "&format=json&maxwidth={$this->maxWidth}&maxheight={$this->maxHeight}";

Hi there,

This has always worked without a hitch, but I'm a bit stumped now. I'm using this for the body field, I have a youtube URL in a paragraph, but I can't get the player to show, just the URL text as is.

I then tried with a Vimeo video, no luck there either, but in that case it creates the TextformatterVideoEmbed div (<div class="TextformatterVideoEmbed"></div>), but the div has no content. I'm running PW 2.6.1 and the latest version of TextformatterVideoEmbed. 

Any idea what's going on here?

Hi @nikoka,

my setup (PW 2.6.10 / TextformatterVideoEmbed 1.0.9) delivers the same effect. Did you find a solution outputting the oembed code?

Cheers, Chris

Hi @inspeCTor,

I'm afraid I didn't, remains a mystery, I haven't had this problem before or after. Spent some time figuring out what could be different with this one installation, but there shouldn't be anything special there.

Please do report if you find some clues, thanks!

Diagnostics module shows

textformatter_video_embed
InnoDB / latin1_swedish_ci Rows: 24
Data: 16.00 KB
Index: 0 bytes Warning Character set mismatch with connection. This might lead to data corruption. Sanitise your data to match latin1 before sending it to the DB.

 any ideas how to fix this?

Same here. PW 2.6.17 

It still works with my local server, but stopped working on the web server.

That's why I switched to "Hanna Code" for YouTube embeds now.

(I had to, because by using the text editor source-button as a workaround, the HTML Purifier seems to strip out iframes inside of inline editor fields. And I couldn't figure out how to allow this with the HTML Purifier settings.)

Thanks! @kongondo

I already stumbled over this thread and your helpful post.

In my case I couldn't disable the HTML Purifier, because it is mandatory with inline editor fields. 

But I'm happy with the Hanna Code workaround so far. 

P.s. For everyone, who also wants to embed responsive videos manually. You can use the html and style like the video embed module does:

<div class="VideoEmbed" style="position:relative;padding:30px 0 56.25% 0;height:0;overflow:hidden;">
<iframe style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yourvideoidhere" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>
</div>

When I open a page with video embedded, I get this: 

Error: Class 'mysqli' not found (line 23 of /home/gocinet/public_html/wire/core/Database.php) 

Same error when I access the module settings page in the backend.

PW 2.7.0. This only happens on the live server, not on my dev machine. So it seems to be server related.

Any pointers on how to solve this would be great. Thank you.

EDIT: I just discovered that mysqli support is not installed on the live server (godaddy VPS). Installing it should solve the problem.

That error says that you don't have the mysqli php extension installed on the server. I can't see the source for this module right now as Github is down, but I expect it is using mysqli instead of PDO which is what the PW core now uses.

So I am guessing this module needs an update to use PDO. Change any instances of $db to $database. Although I am surprised that this module uses any direct db calls. Are you sure it's actually this module that is the problem?

thank you adrian. I will give the renaming a try.

Yes, I'm sure that it is this module because the error throws only on pages with embedded video and on the settings page for the module in the backend.

The module officially supports PW only up to 2.4. That may be why it is not using PDO. 

EDIT: rnaming $db to $database didn't help.

$db is initialized in the module with

$db = wire('db');

Did you try:

$database = wire('database');

You may also need to modify the sql queries to work with PDO. If you're not familiar with the needed changes, a quick google should get you going :)

Once you get it working, a PR for Ryan might nice :)

I have converted the relevant db query code to PDO and will issue a pull request.

I am having a problem getting this to work inside a repeater.  Is that a known issue?  It is just printing out the url.

I really love the TextformatterVideoEmbed module.

I was wondering, Ryan, if you could modify the module to handle both youtube video id's and youtube playlist id's?

Before I dig into the code on the module, I figured I would ask if you could consider making this an upgrade to the module as it would be very handy. Rather than fork it to a new module, it looks like a simple addition you could make to the 'official' module that would be very beneficial:

A good example, where this is handy, is like on a news site I've built, the reporters may take 3 videos of a two hour county commission meeting and upload them to YouTube and instead of dropping in 3 videos into a news page, they could drop in a youtube playlist.

Thanks a bunch for the consideration!

Hello holmescreek,

With people having such busy schedules these days, why not fork the module & make any necessary changes to your GitHub repository. You don't have to advertise your fork, or even enter it into the module repository. You could, instead, issue a pull request to the original repository so that Ryan could then see how much/little needs to be done to add your change back into the official module. Once the changes get incorporated, it is then just a matter of deleting your GitHub repository.

Best wishes,

Steve

I forked the module to make the module settings maxWidth and maxHeight work in Responsive mode:

https://github.com/rolandtoth/TextformatterVideoEmbed

Basically it adds an extra wrapper div which max-width and max-height inline CSS is set to what you put in module settings. Also the hard-coded 56.25% aspect ratio is calculated from these values.

I have used Ryan's VIDEO EMBED FOR YOUTUBE/VIMEO numerous times in various projects and I always love it. However, I went to install it on a 3.0.15 fresh install, and it is saying it cant install it due to it already existing. Has anyone else run into this before? For the life of me, I can not find it in the database.

I can't seem to get this module to load in the backoffice module section, I downloaded and put it in my module folder, then in the backoffice it does not recognise it? Do I need to change file extion name or? any help would be great!

      This is a new module that provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      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)
      - 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="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" 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> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/tree/master
      Download: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/archive/master.zip
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David

      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 (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "https://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.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.
