I would like to be able to embed YouTube videos on my site. I downloaded the YouTube plugin which works perfectly with staticpages. However, I would like to embed such videos in a story.

Example code for embedding YouTube videos is,

PHP Formatted Code
<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/GbDumbUXEmA"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/GbDumbUXEmA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>


I added the relevant tags and attributes to config.php. Now the admin_html array reads,

PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['admin_html'] = array (
    'p'     => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'align' => 1),
    'div'   => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1),
    'span'  => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1),
    'table' => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'width' => 1, 'border' => 1,
                     'cellspacing' => 1, 'cellpadding' => 1),
    'tr'    => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'align' => 1, 'valign' => 1),
    'th'    => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'align' => 1, 'valign' => 1,
                     'colspan' => 1, 'rowspan' => 1),
    'td'    => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'align' => 1, 'valign' => 1,
                     'colspan' => 1, 'rowspan' => 1),
    'object'    => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'width' => 1, 'height' => 1),
    'param'    => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'name' => 1, 'value' => 1),
    'embed'    => array('class' => 1, 'id' => 1, 'src' => 1, 'type' => 1,
                     'wmode' => 1, 'width' => 1, 'height' => 1)
);


The last three tags having been newly added. It isn't allowing me to embed videos into a story. Is there something I am missing or doing incorrectly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The youtube plugin should also work with stories. Opening up < embed > is dangerous to your sites' security.

jmucchiello,

Thanks for your help.

For stories neither [youtube:4iwDM9NAAwU]
and the youtube embed code are not working.

For staticpages: [youtube:4iwDM9NAAwU] doesn't work, but youtube emded code does work.

Am I missing something.

Shane

PS Koalasoft your post confuses me Confused

I completely misread his post. My 782 also handles inline YouTube videos.

Both Koala's and my last posts indicate two different plugins that you can download to provide support for embedding youtube videos in geeklog. Once you install and enable either plugin you will be able to embed youtube videos using the [youtube:videoid] autotag. My plugin allows for customizing various autotags. The youtube plugin Koalasoft pointed to only provides youtube support.

If you haven't installed a plugin before, go with the youtube plugin. It is the simpler of the two plugins.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. First, I didn't know there were two plugins which do this job.

Simply putting in something like,

[youtube:7X1T3sFdwN4]

into the story isn't working for me. So I am going to try your Autotags plugin.

Thanks for the help so far I will let you know how I get on.

I successfully (I think successfully) installed the autotag plugin.

Is the exact code to display a video,

PHP Formatted Code
[youtube:7X1T3sFdwN4]


or

PHP Formatted Code
[youtube:video_7X1T3sFdwN4]


I tried both and Mozilla wants me to install a plugin.

Look at the page source of the output, it should have generate the same < embed > text that your example had. I don't see why it would want to install a plugin unless you don't have flash installed on that copy of Mozilla.

And it is just [youtube:7X1T3sFdwN4]

And don't forget to enable "youtube" on the autotag admin page.

Hi,

The youtube tag is definitely enabled.

Here's some of my page source

As you can see there a huge number of slashes. Is that normal?

So I went in to the autotag editor and noticed the slashes are there too. Next I deleted them and saved. But still not working in the story. I notice that everytime I save in the autotag editor, two more slashes are created where the slashes are.

I presume the autotag for youtube, which comes with it, is complete or is there something else I need to do with it, besides just making sure it is enabled?

As I said before I could run the videos in a static page so I know I don't need a plugin. (Although that was with the youtube plugin) There's something else wrong.

Could there be a conflict if running both the Autotags and YouTube plugins together?

I haven't uninstalled the YouTube plugin.

Thanks for you help,

Shane

You could disable one or the other but I don't know how they interact together. I'll have to look into the slashes problem. I wrote the plugin for the 1.4.0. What version are you running? I haven't tested it again 1.4.1 yet.

I am currently running version 1.4.0sr5-1

By allowing HTML, is for me the only way to enable youtube videos in stories.

Thanks for your help folks,

Shane

The YouTube plugin works in both static and story pages. How can I control the screen display size? Let's say I want the viewer only to be 225x150
<object width="225" height="150">
