Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

@strandoo Not sure if this would help, but I notice you are using the short form url on the second example (that does not work) of https://youtu.be/LBY12usmYAA, have you tried using the actual youtube url (which I cannot link to here because it embeds the video)?

 

I haven't tested, but youtube.be should work: https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/TextformatterVideoEmbed/blob/7c8e4ddce22dc4970c17d0f63ce3d53679e7e3a8/TextformatterVideoEmbed.module#L163

Here's it working as expected:

@adrian You are likely correct. I did not do any real testing. However, as an interesting note, when I posted my previous message you can see the url to youtu.be as a url, however, the link to the video using youtube.com actually embedded the video. So, I have to assume that the forum is using the plugin and it did not show the shortened version.

This forum is just an IPBoard forum - no PW code or use of this module. Good thought though :)

@artaylor I've tried different URLs with similar results. I just tested the embed URL and that didn't work. And as @adrian pointed out, but short form does work (on the 'good' site). I checked other text formatters to make sure they didn't conflict. One thing I just thought of is that they are served from different hosting companies (StableHost vs HostingUK) so differing server configs could be in play...

The other only works if it's a Vimeo video; YouTube URLs slow the page loading then only displays the URL.

The strange thing is though is that you have working embedded YouTube videos on that site here:

Perhaps the host is running mod_security or similar and that is being triggered by particular patterns in some video URLs?

@strandoo Add the following on top of your .htaccess file. Perhaps this will fix the problem.

<IfModule mod_security.c>
  SecFilterEngine Off
  SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>

Hi all. This has been driving me nuts: I've used this module previously and it worked perfectly. I've got it on 2 sites, but music-related. One works normally; I use the textformatter on the body text and videos display fine. The other only works if it's a Vimeo video; YouTube URLs slow the page loading then only displays the URL. I've tried a number of tests and different URLs and I can't figure this out. Both sites are not new and I'm pretty sure that it used to work where now it doesn't.

Here are two samples (they are past gigs, so I can play around with them without messing up the live sites):

Works: https://waveneyvalleyfolkcollective.co.uk/events/kirsty-merryn-jack-harris/

Doesn't Work: http://www.burstoncrown.com/events/sunday-sessions/falling-from-trees/

Any suggestions?

I've seen something similar to this on a client site when this textformatter was added to a CKEditor'd textarea field. It turned out that I was pasting in links to the video, not just the plaintext of the video address and this was causing the formatter to fail to match and then embed it. If you look at the source of the page where the video doesn't work, look to see if the text you pasted is actually a link, and if so, simply break the link, save the page and revisit it on the front-end.

I hope that is what's happening here - but there's no guarantee it is.

I tried inserting this link and it works here. There is something that makes text formater to fail and then just plain text is rendered. As netcarver pointed, remove the link to video altogether, save the page and the insert it again. Also, the site sometimes takes a long time to load at all, but its unrelated I guess.

Ah, I should have mentioned that. Since this is alive site, and that's an upcoming gig, I needed a workaround. I'm not using the module there, just a special field that inserts the YouTube URL in an iframe. I prefer the responsiveness of Ryan's module.

@netcarver  I've run into that problem in the past, so I've checked. All clean text. 

@PWaddict That sound promising. I've had problems with mod_security before. I'll try it out a bit later today. 

Last night I created a local version of the site and the videos loaded fine, leading me to think it's a hosting/php/config thing.

Then I'm 99.9% sure that the mod_security is causing the problem. The suggested fix will do the job.

So, as PWaddict predicted, turning off mod_security did the trick, but I couldn't do it with the htaccess rule. I tried that first, but it didn't do anything, so I disabled it in the Plesk control panel. (It's under 'Web Application Firewall..'; I've set it to 'detection only' rather than 'on' or 'off'. If anyone knows of a downside to this or if I can target something more directly, please let me know). But the video now appears as it should. Thanks all.

Update: a couple of days later, the problem returned. I contacted support for this account and after a bit of back and forth, I gave up. I took a look at the hosting Plesk cp and saw that mod_sec is turned off. The PHP version was 5.3 (I'm pretty sure I had it at 5.6) so I changed it back to 5.6. I'm basically back where I started. Maybe I'll move the account to my reseller hosting. Everything works fine there...

Hi

How do I center the video? If it's embed in <p>link<p>, it's display. But if we do <p style="text-align:center;">link</p>, the video doesn't display.

I just have 2 formatters, this one and Hanna.

Thanks

Hello,

Found a solution via css, but I don't know how to apply to it since this iframe have no id neither class. (I have others iframe which I doesn't want to center).

So how I can apply an id or class to the video iframe?

Thanks

I prefer the responsive embed method...

...and this applies a class to a containing div element.

Thanks, but responsive tooks too much space in desktop version, even if it's was fine in mobile version. I found a way to specify some CSS rules. Thanks.

I'm in process of upgrading PW 2.5.4, PHP 5.6.8 and using TextformatterVideoEmbed version 109. When I upgrade this module to the latest version 111 I get 

Compile Error: Cannot make static method ConfigurableModule::getModuleConfigInputfields() non static in
class TextformatterVideoEmbed (line 18 of \site\modules\TextformatterVideoEmbed\TextformatterVideoEmbed.module) 

Is it possible that this method is problematic?

version 109:

public static function getModuleConfigInputfields(array $data) {

version 111:

public function getModuleConfigInputfields(array $data) {

My plan is to go slow: 2.5.4 -> 2.7.3 -> 2.8.62 -> 3.0.102 But it fails on 2.5.4. The module itself states it's stable and working on 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.0 I know the module v 111 works on PW 3 (various versions).

I have upgraded several old (~4 yrs) PW sites straight to the latest dev version. The more you wait with upgrading, the more you'll have to change. Sometimes it just means adding PW namespaces, or upgrading modules as well. Sadly, I have no clue why this function causes problems. I just came across Ryan's announcement of this function: https://processwire.com/blog/posts/new-module-configuration-options/

This was introduced for 2.5.5. Maybe @ryan can shed some light on this...

      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.
       
      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.

      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.

      I've created a small module which lets you define a timestamp after which a page should be accessible. In addition you can define a timestamp when the release should end and the page should not be accessable any more.
      ProcessWire-Module: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/page-access-releasetime/
      Github: https://github.com/Sebiworld/PageAccessReleasetime
      Usage
      PageAccessReleasetime can be installed like every other module in ProcessWire. Check the following guide for detailed information: How-To Install or Uninstall Modules
      After that, you will find checkboxes for activating the releasetime-fields at the settings-tab of each page. You don't need to add the fields to your templates manually.
      Check e.g. the checkbox "Activate Releasetime from?" and fill in a date in the future. The page will not be accessable for your users until the given date is reached.
      If you have $config->pagefileSecure = true, the module will protect files of unreleased pages as well.
      How it works
      This module hooks into Page::viewable to prevent users to access unreleased pages:
      public function hookPageViewable($event) { $page = $event->object; $viewable = $event->return; if($viewable){ // If the page would be viewable, additionally check Releasetime and User-Permission $viewable = $this->canUserSee($page); } $event->return = $viewable; } To prevent access to the files of unreleased pages, we hook into Page::isPublic and ProcessPageView::sendFile.
      public function hookPageIsPublic($e) { $page = $e->object; if($e->return && $this->isReleaseTimeSet($page)) { $e->return = false; } } The site/assets/files/ directory of pages, which isPublic() returns false, will get a '-' as prefix. This indicates ProcessWire (with activated $config->pagefileSecure) to check the file's permissions via PHP before delivering it to the client.
      The check wether a not-public file should be accessable happens in ProcessPageView::sendFile. We throw an 404 Exception if the current user must not see the file.
      public function hookProcessPageViewSendFile($e) { $page = $e->arguments[0]; if(!$this->canUserSee($page)) { throw new Wire404Exception('File not found'); } } Additionally we hook into ProcessPageEdit::buildForm to add the PageAccessReleasetime fields to each page and move them to the settings tab.
      Limitations
      In the current version, releasetime-protected pages will appear in wire('pages')->find() queries. If you want to display a list of pages, where pages could be releasetime-protected, you should double-check with $page->viewable() wether the page can be accessed. $page->viewable() returns false, if the page is not released yet.
      If you have an idea how unreleased pages can be filtered out of ProcessWire selector queries, feel free to write an issue, comment or make a pull request!
