embed YouTube-videos / insert other videos ?

  • Hi,

    I would liek to use P2 for a site featuring some Youtube-videos and also upload some other videos.
    Is it possible to do this with P2-theme out of the box or do I need some other plug-ins like “WordTube” ir something else ?

    do I need to use the WordPress-Video-player or is it also possible to use other video-players ?

    Appreciate your kind help !

  • I dunno which video player is best, I use vipers video quicktags personally….

    Hi,
    vipers video quicktags is a very nice plugin, but how can i use it with p2 theme?

    Thanks.

    EMB

    I’m not real sure what you are asking?

    You install the theme, you install the plugin…….. the plugin works with the theme….

    @rvoodoo

    yes of course, from admin it works.
    But can i use it in front-end? so the visitor can use it to post?
    Thanks

    EMB – that is of course the question! Some of the folks posting are NOT specifically P2 users… so have no idea what your problem is!

    SO – the solution to figuring out your thing is to figure out how the plugin is “called” in the backend… Then you would insert (probably into post-form.php) the appropriate code… something like:

    example:
    <?php if(function_exists(‘the_ratings’)) { the_ratings(); } ?>

    This is from the ratings plugin I use. I call it, rather than let it decide where to stick itself. I would rather control where it goes… and my P2 theme has been heavily modified.

    I’m interested in this video plugin… so maybe I’ll take a hack at it.

    WOW – That’s one monster of a PLUGIN!!! I’m going to have to bow my head and tuck my tail and back outa this one!

    until later.

    I was thinking about using this other plugin:
    Smart YouTube:

    Smart Youtube WordPress Plugin

    Hello

    @dlopeman

    Wow… cool… so my first attempt got this result… which means its trying!

    [ERROR: Unable to parse URL, check for correct DailyMotion format]

    OH – but I used a YOUTUBE link… I bet that was it! I just went to that website – it has videos.

    Oh sweet! It worked!

    Now how do I get the buttons on my form!?

    dlopeman

    @dlopeman

    I suppose, like youtube, I don’t have to wrry about dailymotions availability. I thought it was a different site.

    dlopeman

    @dlopeman

    OK – I got the DailyMotion one to work:

    [dailymotion]http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xa874c_tom-mabe-eavesdropping_news[/dailymotion]
    
    [YouTube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bih28LY5v24]

    But the YouTube one is not…

    dlopeman

    @dlopeman

    OK – I don’t read French or whatever language that is catalpa!!! LOL

    So I tried formatting the youtube just like the dailymotion one and THAT worked!

    Very nice – thanks catalpa. I wonder why the vipervideo plugin doesn’t explain it like you did! Even if it was in another language, I was able to follow it!

    Now for the button! I looked at the code last night and I think I found the right function. The problem is that I will want the resultant chose videos to go into MY TEXTAREA… not the backend. Without registering on your site I can’t see how you did it. Did you have buttons? Or is it that you know the code?

    I can’t depend on my visitors to know the code… so I need buttons, or will have to make an interface…

    dlopeman

    @dlopeman

    OH – forgot the youtube code:

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bih28LY5v24[/youtube]

    Hello
    oh ! sorry
    No button for the front textarea …I can’t do that. Just know the code ! Not so hard for members…
    Always the same [vimeo]…….url…..[/vimeo]
    [googlevideo]..url….[/googlevideo]
    [metacafe]..url……[/metacafe]

    dlopeman

    @dlopeman

    I’ll make buttons! Maybe I’ll share! LOL

    @dlopeman thnak’s! Share it please 😉

    or wait the wordpress 2.9?
