The NFB Video Plugin is designed to allow users to embed videos
from sites who provide autodiscoverable oembed links on their
Previously, to embed a film, we had to provide the entire object
or embed the information ourselves; we had to play with the sizes
and hope that we didn’t break it.
When a site contains autodiscovery, you only need to enter “oe”
followed by the pasted link and it will seek out the embed
and set it to the size you defined.
Good examples to test it are :
Set 1 size for all your embeds!
Upload nfb_video_plugin to your plugin directory
Go to the Plug-ins tab in your administration panel and
activate the plugin.
Take a page from a site like NFB.ca like :
http://www.nfb.ca/film/louise_en/ or http://www.onf.ca/film/paow_paow_te_mort/
Type “oe” minus the quotes followed immediately by the URL.
oehttp://www.nfb.ca/film/louise_en/ or oehttp://www.onf.ca/film/paow_paow_te_mort/
Adjust your settings in the Settings->NFB Video Plugin.
WHAT IS OEMBED?
oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation
of a URL on third party sites. The simple API allows a
website to display embedded content (such as photos or
videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without
having to parse the resource directly.
