    Hi,

    First thanks for your plugin, its very helpfull....

    We have aprox 800 videos on vodpod:
    http://hermandadblancaorg.vodspot.tv/

    And we have to migrate to other video gallery system. Could be possible to migrate from the vodpod┬┤s rss like it was a youtube or vimeo channel?.

    Regards,

    IIUC they are all just YouTube videos, correct?

    If so, how did you create the collection of 800 videos? How do you pull them from YouTube? Was it created over time by individually adding videos?

    You mention an rss feed of vodpod - do you have the link somewhere? Maybe it's easy to implement support for the RSS feed, but I'd need to see an example first.

    hi silvia,

    thanks for you fast answer!

    I think there was a rss but its not real, i just check and they discontinue this service, so the migration will be very complicated.

    Our video gallerie has youtube, vimeo and other services... all the videos comes from diferent channels and authors... so I have no idea how to do it, the only way I know its copy paste all videos! :(

    Do you have any idea?

    Regads,

    I can't do anything for you unless you get a list of the video urls that you've accumulated. I would suggest to them to provide the url lists as a courtesy. It doesn't have to be a proper file format - just a txt file with all the urls would likely be sufficient. I could built an importer for that.

    Ah, no, no. Not the vodpod urls. We need the urls of the original site, i.e. the youtube or vimeo urls. You should really get in contact with them and ask them to provide a dump for you. Should be easy enough for them to get.

    Hi silvia,

    Unfortunatly vodpod was adquired by other company more than two years ago, and they discontinued all suppport.

    Sooooo I begin to copy one by one videos to a youtube and vimeo channels...

    Other question: do your plugin have a widget for recent videos which have thumnbnails instead or only titles? something like the vodpod widget we have now: http://hermandadblanca.org/

    Many many many thanks for your help.

    The recent videos widget doesn't do images right now. You can change the code in ev-widget.php, but it would probably mean adding another option to the widget to display images or text.
