Video Embed & Thumbnail Generator
Video Download Link (8 posts)

    Works fine for individual files from the "embed video from url" screen, but I can't seem to get it to appear in the gallery short code. Please advise. Also would be great to have a TinyMCE editor button for gallery/file embed settings. Great work on this plugin so far!! If I can just get the gallery download links, it's perfect.

    Yes, download links should be part of the shortcode. Right now they're just text inserted into the editor window. I made that option for myself and I wasn't sure anyone else was even using it so I haven't revisited it in over a year. I'll put that on the list for a future version.

    What would you want the TinyMCE button to do that the plugin doesn't already do through the Add Media button?

    For me, I would like to be able to set the gallery settings from the editor, but the media button embed form is fine too, it just needs be able to insert a gallery and settings rather than only individual files. In addition, it would be great to have a playlist style gallery with ability to set thumbnails right or bottom. All videos need to have option for a download link...could be with the thumbnails or with the video template.

    So, if I understand you, for now if I want to create something that resembles a gallery with download links. I will need to insert each video separately and kind of of make my own gallery on the page?

    Version 4.1.3 of the plugin brings the download link into the shortcode. So if your shortcode includes downloadlink="true" then a download link will show up in your gallery popup.

    Kyle, I can't tell you how great this is that you have implemented this. Only thing is I just don't see the link anywhere. You say it should show up in the gallery popup, but I'm not seeing it. I need to create different galleries, so my shortcode looks like this:

    [KGVID gallery="true" downloadlink="true" gallery_include="1470,1301"][/KGVID]

    it still works with an individual media placement without issue. I am also unclear what effect the WP Media settings have for the drop-down insert menu: "Single Video", "Video Gallery", and "WordPress Default". I also have the "Insert download link below video" checked.

    Thanks.

    The downloadlink="true" attribute won't do anything in the gallery shortcode. Is "Insert download link below video" checked on both the 1470 and 1301 videos?

    Can you post a link for me to look at? I feel like there might be something I've forgotten to do in order to make this work, but I'm not sure what it is.

    Yes, there must be something. I re-imported the videos through a post, directly to the Media Manager, tried different shortcodes, but still no luck.

    Here's a link: Test Page

    I'm sorry again. I didn't forget to write the code to make that work, but I did forget to keep strict control over what I check in to SVN from the different computers I'm working with. Somehow the last part got written out of the plugin. I will get it back in the next release.
