    Funciona perfectamente en el river Gracias mariano

  • elgg!gal 529 days ago

    Does this work with the 3 column river plugin enabled?

  • rjcalifornia 529 days ago

    Hi @Chicken and @Mariano

    Yeah, I'm still working on the 'Wire Activity' embedding. Right now I am somehow busy but it should be ready soon.


    @itskim It should work with the 3 colum river plugin, since this extend the wire, rather than the activity river.

    is it normal that there is no option for vimeo in the settings ? 

    also is it normal to find a second wiretube folder inside the first one ? with a second start.php ?


  • elgg!gal 524 days ago

    Hi, this is working on my activity page, however, when I visit the wire, its just showing the URL to youtube and not the video player, do I need to install the other plugin for the wire?

  • cartonic 523 days ago

    This is the one of the usefull plugins out there.

    In my wordpress blog for video embedding I have a plugin that has video on click, a killer feature for better site loads.(that's it to know what I mean).

    If I may ask, how hard it is to implement that kind of feature in this plugin or Elgg in general?

    do I need elgg video plugin for dependency?


  • Roman 502 days ago

    It works for my elgg 1.8.6, videos 1.3 but I have to change vimeo protocols from https to http for video to load.

    Awesome Plugin!  Would be great if they showed up in the wire as well though.  Right now mine are only showing up in the activity.  Any way this can happen?

  • Thomass C 468 days ago

    Error with HTTPS.

    Wee, I'd fixed problem with https://vimeo.com and added youtu.be to the list. Here's the code you can add to your views/default/river/object/thewire/create.php file line 15:

    // youtu.be
    $excerpt =  preg_replace("/\s*[a-zA-Z\/\/:\.]*youtu.be\/([a-zA-Z0-9\-_]+)([a-zA-Z0-9\/\*\-\_\?\&\;\%\=\.]*)/i","<iframe width='425' height='350' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/$1' frameborder='0'></iframe>",$excerpt);

    $excerpt =  preg_replace('#https?://(www\.)?vimeo\.com/([^ ?\n/]+)((\?|/).*?(\n|\s))?#i', '<object width="auto" height="auto"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=$2&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=&amp;fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=$2&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="400" height="300"></embed></object>',$excerpt);


    Upload this wiretube plugin to your server and flush caches. give it a try. I hope this helps.
