I've updated the module from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 and it doesn't grab the youtube / vimeo thumbnail anymore. I switched it back to 1.0.0 where it properly works.

Thanks for letting me know about this - I didn't test the PR that went into 1.0.1 - it seemed like such a simple regex change 🙂

Anyway, regex is now fixed and I have also removed the ancient and broken CURL code for grabbing the Youtube video title and replaced it with wireHttp()

The module doesn't allow me to select my multi-language URL field. 

Please replace the 48 line with this to enable support for it:

"searchVideoFieldTypes" => array("FieldtypeText", "FieldtypeTextLanguage", "FieldtypeTextarea", "FieldtypeTextareaLanguage", "FieldtypeURL", "FieldtypeURLLanguage", "FieldtypeTextareas")

Done, but I modified to allow all fields that extend the Text field type.

@adrian can you add support for YouTube playlist links? Example: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdyYtz46NolYSyIlOVgzKc2mpFSQhi8Ho

 

Probably, but the approach will need to be different and I should also add vimeo support for this as well, so it's a bit of work. I won't have any time for this for a while - any chance you'd be willing to tackle it and submit a PR?

Currently I don't have time too. Maybe in about 2-3 months if you haven't added it yet I will try to do it.

When grabbing vimeo thumbnail I'm getting the following warning on debug:

Warning: strlen() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in C:\laragon\www\mysite\wire\modules\Inputfield\InputfieldImage\InputfieldImage.module on line 1262

Not sure why you are seeing that. What are the settings for your images field?

I don't think it has to do with the settings of the images field cause I tried all of them and the problem still happens. The module can't retrieve properly the title of the vimeo video because on the image description I'm getting: array-1. When I enter a youtube url the title retrieved properly. The problem happens only on vimeo.

I didn't change anything ...

I am using a textarea with a textformatter "Make HTML Links" and "External Link Redirect".
Is that a problem?

Textformatters shouldn't be an issue because they are not applied in the admin - sorry for that initial suggestion - you can see that I removed that a while ago in my post above. Perhaps you can try on a fresh install and confirm it's working and then figure out what modules or settings on the current problem site are causing the problem?

Now i find the time to do a few further tests.

When i put a html file containing this code on the same server, it works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/aqz-KE-bpKQ/hqdefault.jpg">
</body>
</html>

as well as this code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title></title>
</head>
<body>
	<?php 
	$id = $_GET['id'];
	?>
<img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/<?php echo $id;?>/hqdefault.jpg">
</body>
</html>

With this call:
imgtest.php?id=aqz-KE-bpKQ

But the module don't work for me?

Any ideas?

Ok, i figured it out!

It was an issue with the server this website is running on and the image magic extension.

I now added a php.ini in the root of the processwire installation with the following line:

extension="imagick.so"

Thanks for your help!

Hi @adrian the YouTube video title doesn't get saved in the description field. Vimeo is working properly. I'm using the latest version.

Looks like they finally shutdown access via http://youtube.com/get_video_info?video_id= which means I'll need to change this module to use their API which means you'll need to get an API key to make it work.

Any chance you have time to make that change to the module and submit a PR?

No need to change the module with the Google API keys. You can retrieve the title with oEmbed by using a url like this:

http://www.youtube.com/oembed?url=http%3A//youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DM3r2XDceM6A&format=json

Hi @adrian

Vimeo changed their api call instructions to get the thumbnails. https://developer.vimeo.com/api/reference/videos#get_video_thumbnails

Could you update the module with the necessary changes please? I think line 188 in your module might need changing.

I contacted vimeo and this is what they said:

Hi ,
 
My name is xxx and I'm stepping in for the Vimeo team today.
 
I'm very sorry for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.
 
We recently made an update to our security protocols that included all thumbnails in videos. This was intended to be a non-breaking change across the platform but in cases like yours where links were hardcoded, we were not able to seamlessly update to the new image link structure. 
 
You will need to update your current workflow/codebase to reflect these new changes. Please review our documentation on initiating an API call to GET the thumbnail of a specific video from the Vimeo servers. Additionally our API allows you to GET the thumbnails for all your videos. (ex. https://api.vimeo.com/me/videos?fields=uri,name,pictures). You can use additional parameters listed on our developer page to specify the results you need
 
While we do not expect the updated thumbnail links to change in the near term, our engineers recommend implementing this regularly instead of caching the video thumbnail URLs and also recommend batching these calls if possible, which will be more efficient. 
 
I understand this change alters what’s required for your application and your workflow as a whole. Our team is committed to finding solutions that allow you to maximize your usage of Vimeo to deliver the highest quality experience for your customers. To that, please do let me know if you have any other questions or if there’s anything else I can do to help.

Sincerely,
xxx.

@OllieMackJames - can you provide a link to a vimeo video where this module is currently no longer working. In my testing it still seems OK so I'd like to stick with the current approach if possible because it doesn't require authentication like their new API does.

      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 for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. 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.

      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.
