[resolved] Posting a video in Revolution TV GPL Theme (21 posts)

    Hey all, I've just installed a new blog and am using the free Revolution TV theme, i want to embed Vimeo or youtube videos - but how do i do that?

    If i try post something it only posts the summary, if i choose t add media, it seems to just ad the media as a link to the video in the summary text?

    I understand this theme to be specifically for Video, so thought there would be some option to embed the video in the correct place when making a post - so are there any extra plugins i need or am i just doing something dumb?

    Thanks all

    Hi biscutty, I'm also using this theme on my website. It's very easy; just paste the code, however be sure you don't use the Rich Text Editor (TinyMCE?) so better disable it: ---> Users ---> (your username) ---> and tick 'Disable the visual editor when writing'

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Geetar,

    Im still not having any luck though... I am new to this, so not sure if I am embedding the video correctly?

    It seems to just show up as a link or as the code that I posted...

    Should I be using the add media buttons, or just adding the code within the code window, for example :

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o29_7lQ3QB4&w=480&h=360&fmt=18]

    The Video I want to embed is:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o29_7lQ3QB4

    Ive added a screenshot of what my window looks like:

    Something I noticed about your theme is that the video is posting in the body area, and not in the video box shown on the revolution theme, see the screenshot below:

    biscutty, in order to embed that video, just create a new post Title: "HIp Hop B Girl", choose a category and simply paste the code provided by YouTube:

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/o29_7lQ3QB4&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/o29_7lQ3QB4&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    Be sure TinyMCE is deactivated and you're using the HTML mode.

    Also you can install the Video Embedder plugin: http://www.gate303.net/2007/12/17/video-embedder/ , WordPress Video Plugin or search WordPress.org for any other else.

    Install the plugin, and follow the instructions. For that video you should use this shortcode: [youtube]o29_7lQ3QB4&hl[/youtube]

    Note: I'm running WordPress 2.7 Beta 3 on my site

    Yep, I believe the right way is by using custom fields (key plus value) i've been trying with several keys and nothing happens.

    Hi Biscutty, I need your help. I noticed you got your site running and it looks great just like it should I love the custom work you dropped in. How did you get the video to play above the video tittle and post data? and how did you get your video thumbs images to load? I noticed the thumbs.jpg is not ordinary looks like it used some script. Here is what I have so far and its getting there but I could really use some guidance. here is me email azul_one@designollin.com and my site link

    Thanks,

    Cisco

    this could well be a very stupid question but anyways im very new to this so any help would be very appreciated :)..

    how did you guys manage to get a video specifically on the home page, as in clicking home will bring up a video exclusive to that? understand how to edit categories and have video included in them but there doesnt seem to be anyway to post directly to the home page. ?? please help.

    thanks will

    Hey guys i saw that u guys had some trouble with embedding video's to the revolutionTwo TV theme.

    I opend the source file and in order to let it work proppely
    you need to add a custom field. With this a key

    Key : embed
    Then post the whole youtube or vimeo code ( not in the post but in the field next to the custom field. )

    Hope this helps.

    My website is fully running now =D

    To add Thumbnails in the post below the main post use the custom field as well like this

    Key : thumbnail
    http://yoursite.com/image.jpg

    Using the image upload function will create a link where it uploaded the image to your site I used the size 102 px by 56 px

    Does anybody know if there is a key for extra info about the movie?
    I switched from the sharpfolio theme to revolutiontv, and in sharpfolio I have the info of the movies in an "description" extra value box.

    It's great to know that there are the keys "embed" and "thumbnail".
    Tnx for those. Are there more?

    To embed video:
    custom key = embed

    To add thumbnail:
    custom key = thumbnail

    My website is also up and running now :D

    I'm trying to embed a video like everyone else above , but it doesnt work. I'm sure i'm missing something.

    I click Custom Field. I enter 'embed' as the key , and as the Value i enter the youtube video code , eg:

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/o29_7lQ3QB4&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/o29_7lQ3QB4&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    Then i click 'Add Custom Field'

    I leave the actual post area blank. Then i view the page and there is no video embedded at all.

    "I opend the source file and in order to let it work proppely" <---- Do i need to edit a source file in order for this to work?

    Sorry for asking but i've never really used custom fields before.

    EDIT- Nevermind , i resolved it. seems it was a bug in my version of WP. Taken from the revolution tv site:

    "Please note that WordPress 2.6.2 has a small custom field bug which add's extra "slashes" to embed code when submitted to a custom field. Until this bug has been fixed, you will need to add the custom field then update the value once again by pasting the embed code and clicking "update"

    Has anyone noticed that if you place a video into your blog using the [embed] custom key, that video doesn't show up in your feed in Google Reader? Is this something that's unique to my site?
