Module: Video or Social Post Embed

Recommended Posts

Video or Social Post Embed

Based on the TextformatterVideoEmbed module developed by Ryan Cramer, we have added the possibility to embed publications of the main social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

ProcessWire Textformatter module that enables translation of YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Issuu URLs to full embed codes, resulting in a viewable video or social post in textarea fields you apply it to.

How to install

  • Download or Clone from Github: https://github.com/lexsanchez/VideoOrSocialPostEmbed

  • Copy the VideoOrSocialPostEmbed.module file to your /site/modules/ directory (or place it in /site/modules/VideoOrSocialPostEmbed/).

  • Click check for new modules in ProcessWire Admin Modules screen. Click install for the module labeled: "Video or Social Post Embed".

  • Now you will be on the module config screen. Please make note of the config options and set as you see fit.

How to use

  • Edit your body field in Setup > Fields (or whatever field(s) you will be placing videos in). On the details tab, find the Text Formatters field and select "Video or Social Post Embed". Save.

  • Edit a page using the field you edited and paste in YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and/or Issuu URLs each on their own paragraph.

Example

How it might look in your editor (like TinyMCE):

https://issuu.com/madsoundsmagazine/docs/mad_sounds_issue_no._17_issuu

How it works

This module uses YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Issuu oEmbed services to generate the embed codes populated in your content. After these services are queried the first time, the embed code is cached so that it doesn't need to be pulled again.

Configuration

You may want to update the max width and max height settings on the module's configuration screen. You should make these consistent with what is supported by your site design.

If you change these max width / max height settings you may also want to check the box to clear cache, so that YouTube/Vimeo/Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Issuu oembed services will generate new embed codes for you.

Using with Markdown, Textile or other LML

This text formatter is looking for a YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Issuu video URL surrounded by paragraph tags. As a result, if you are using Markdown or Textile (or something else like it) you want that text formatter to run before this one. That ensures that the expected paragraph tags will be present when VideoOrSocialPostEmbed runs. You can control the order that text formatters are run in by drag/drop sorting in the field editor.

Hello,

When I try to install Video or Social Post Embed in ProcessWire 3.0.102, I have an error page with:

Error

Class '\VideoOrSocialPostEmbed' not found

and

File: /home/********/public_html/wire/core/Modules.php:535

525:                    ProcessWire::setCurrentInstance($wire2);
526:                } else {
527:                    $wire1 = null;
528:                }
529:            } else {
530:                $wire1 = null;
531:                $wire2 = null;
532:            }
533:            
534:            try {
535:                $module = $this->wire(new $className());
536:            } catch(\Exception $e) {
537:                $this->error(sprintf($this->_('Failed to construct module: %s'), $className) . " - " . $e->getMessage());
538:                $module = null;
539:            }

In version 2.8.62, the class wasn't found as well.

If I disable Tracy Debugger, I see:

This error message was shown because: site is in debug mode. ($config->debug = true; => /site/config.php). Error has been logged.

EDIT: I've just been able to install it via the backend (via the .zip URL from GitHub).
I had done it manually before. I had renamed the folder and the .module file VideoOrSocialPostEmbed (like in the documentation(s)). I hadn't done it again without renaming anything (or had I? I don't remember. Perhaps both, or the folder or the file) so I don't know if it was the reason (or one of them).
I've changed the PHP version from 7.1 to 7.2. Not sure it had an effect.

Hello again,

For YouTube videos, would it be possible to make it work with &rel=0 added at the end of the URL (like it is the case with Video Embed For YouTube/Vimeo).

It works with the Video embed for YouTube and Vimeo module.

Thanks in advance for considering it.

Or if anyone knows how to enable it properly.

Nice module.

You should add this:

 $embedCode = utf8_encode($data['html']);


When fetching data from providers, and set the data tables to mb4. Otherwise the output gets chewed up and throws errors. 

Test with instagram embed where there is an emoji in the title, e.g. https://www.instagram.com/p/BjXM8mInfN-/

Thanks for the module.

tested with 3.0.155 all embed works after two changes:

1- Find textformatter_video_or_social_embed table change embed_code collation to utf8mb4 if not  // changed to utf8mb4_unicode_ci

2- https://github.com/lexsanchez/VideoOrSocialPostEmbed/blob/57c254e64ae3c03139e2bb5119ffc676d92af39c/TextformatterVideoOrSocialPostEmbed.module#L103

update this line 

$embedCode = utf8_encode($data['html']);

I am having difficulty implementing the fix that fliwire suggests above. Can someone share with me the proper syntax for the first step "1- Find textformatter_video_or_social_embed table change embed_code collation to utf8mb4 if not  // changed to utf8mb4_unicode_ci" I understand the need to change the characterset but don't know how as I'm very new to processwire, php and this forum so thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Hi,

Just installed this amazing module. All works fine but I am not able to embed FB videos. I get this error on the page:

Video Unavailable
This video may no longer exist, or you don't have permission to view it.
 
Is there a solution for this?
 
Thanks.

Hi,

I have a strange question. I embed twitter link without problem, but the rendering is in spanish (and I tried many links with the same result). Believe me, I have absolutely nothing set to this language on my computer (either PW, or twitter cookie or anything). Have an idea how to revert back this to my language?

Thanks

I've just noticed from today that YouTube video urls don't appear to be working. Vimeo and Twitter examples worked fine but I can't seem to get any Youtube URL to work now.

Is anyone aware of what this could be. I've tried different urls in different fileds but am having no joy. Previous links that works have now just reverted to a line of text.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thank you for this module!

It was not working for me until I found out that the HTML created by CKEditor was something like

<p style="margin-left:0cm; margin-right:0cm">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lh63JcccM7k</p>

So the <p> tag has a style attribute. The regex (line 180 in module php) does not cater for that.

$regex = '#<p>\s*(https?://(?:www\.)?youtu(?:.be|be.com)+/(?:watch/?\?v=|v/)?([^\s&<\'"]+))(&[-_,.=&;a-zA-Z0-9]*)?.*?</p>#';

I adjusted it, so that it also works  for paragraphs with attributes

$regex = '#<p.*>\s*(https?://(?:www\.)?youtu(?:.be|be.com)+/(?:watch/?\?v=|v/)?([^\s&<\'"]+))(&[-_,.=&;a-zA-Z0-9]*)?.*?</p>#';

@Lex Sanchez maybe you want to implement this in your module.

@Gideon So Unfortunately Facebook doesn't allow embedding content anymore (started on 24th October 2020) unless the site is authenticated. More here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/oembed
This includes Facebook and Instagram

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for creating a new measurement object from the sum or difference between two other objects. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.
      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      Screencasts
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
