Hi, welcome to the FlatPress support forum :)

I have no experiences with Facebook videos (anyone else?), but as for Youtube, it's as simple as that:

Code: Select all

See also the BBCode documentation on our wiki: https://wiki.flatpress.org/doc:plugins:bbcode

Replace the script from line 332 in fp-plugin/bbcode/plugin.bbcode.php with this

Code: Select all

function do_bbcode_video($action, $attr, $content, $params, $node_object) {
	if ($action == 'validate') {
		return true;
	}
	$vurl = parse_url($attr['default']);
	if (isset($attr['type'])) {
		$type = $attr['type'];
	} else {
		// is it http://www.MYSITE.com  or http://MYSITE.com ?
		$web = explode('.', $vurl['host']);
		array_pop($web);
		$type = isset($web[1])
			? $web[1]
			: $web[0];
	}
	
		$color = isset($attr['color'])
			? $attr['color']
			: '';
		$width = isset($attr['width'])
			? $attr['width']
			: '560';
		$height = isset($attr['height'])
			? $attr['height']
			: '315';
		$allowfs = isset($attr['allowfullscreen'])
			? $attr['height']
			: 'allowfullscreen';			
		$float = isset($attr['float'])
			? "align=\"{$attr['float']}\" "
			: "style=\"margin: 0 auto; display:block;\" ";

	
	$query = utils_kexplode($vurl['query'], '=&');
	$the_url = null;
	$others = '';
	switch ($type) {
		case 'html5':
			$the_url = "<video style=\"display:block; margin: 0 auto;\" width=\"{$width}\" height=\"{$height}\" controls>"
				."<source src=\"".$attr['default']."\">"
				."Your browser does not support the video tag."
				."</video>";
			break;
		case 'youtube':
			$the_url = "<iframe src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/{$query['v']}\" width=\"{$width}\" height=\"{$height}\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; fullscreen; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" {$float}></iframe>";
			break;
		case 'vimeo':
			$vid = isset($query['sec'])? $query['sec'] : str_replace('/', '', $vurl['path']);
			$the_url="<iframe src=\"https://player.vimeo.com/video/{$vid}?color={$vid}&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0\" width=\"{$width}\" height=\"{$height}\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"autoplay; fullscreen;\" allowfullscreen {$float}></iframe>";
			break;
		case 'facebook':
			$vid = isset($query['sec'])? $query['sec'] : str_replace('/video/', '', $vurl['path']);
			$the_url="<div id=\"fb-root\"></div>
			<script async defer src=\"https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v3.2\"></script>
			<div class=\"fb-video\" data-href=\"{$vid}\" data-allowfullscreen=\"true\" data-width=\"{$width}\"></div>";
			break;
		case 'default':
		default:
			$the_url = null;
	}

	if ($the_url) {
		return $the_url;
	}
	return '[unsupported video]';
}
You have support for youtube, vimeo, facebook and html5 (for mp4 you must set the type like in the exemple).

Code: Select all

youtube:

[video=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15nPDcuqDTI]

html5:

[video=https://media.w3.org/2010/05/sintel/trailer.mp4 type=html5]

vimeo:

[video=https://vimeo.com/96867408]

facebook:

[video=https://www.facebook.com/facebook/videos/10153231379946729/]
I hope to find a way to auto recognize html5 videos and I will send all in github.

Hello there, hello vodka,

I replaced the script from line 332 in fp-plugin/bbcode/plugin.bbcode.php with your code and I got Error 500...
Nothing to see anymore behalve the Error 500 script error ..

I installed the flatpress-master which was offered here in an other thread .. :

try dev version 1.1 https://github.com/flatpressblog/flatpr ... master.zip
And now I try to get my website running again ... :roll:

Well, I changed it back to the origin file, now the website is running again, but there is no possibility to run any other video URL than You Tube.

You must replace only the lines for the function (from 332 to 373)

Thank you vodka, this is very useful. I slightly adapted your code and added it to the FP sources.

To be mentioned: It does not support uploaded video files yet - please refer to the the Audio and video player plugin in this case. Maybe we could unify this later.

I've tried to use this plugin in the past, but no matter the URL of the audio all I get is an error saying "Given file does not exist.", when it 100% does. Any ideas?

Did you enter the correct path to the file?

See this entry on my personal blog, where I included the video like this:

Code: Select all

[videoplayer="attachs/2018-06-30_haldehoheward.mp4" width="640" height="360"]
The "audioplayer" tag works the same way.

Do you have the "attachs" folder in your video path? (If that doesn't help, please give us the link to your site and to the audio file, so we can test it together.)

All the best,
Arvid

Ah, if everything needs to be in a certain folder then I'll just use regular HTML5 player code for playing files. Thanks anyway.
