    Thanks, it works well in my site. Will you include a solution to integrate <iframe> videos too ?

    I have this error: Error fetching data from remote url. Either wrong url or video not found.

    I use the elgg 1.8 and I have the api key. How I fix that?

  • rohonupe99 834 days ago

    i have the bridge plugin, and this one installed, and have entered the api code in the admin area, but when i click play on a video, the progress bar shows for a couple seconds, but the video does not play. it just sjows a black screen

  • rohonupe99 834 days ago

    i get this error when uploading a video, and i have already registered an api.    Your API is invalid or banned. Register new API at http://www.puginlotto.com.

    @rohonupe I had the same problem,but I had the www.mysite.com instead of mysite.com

    The problem I'm having is that the video plays aren't counting?

  • patriot 820 days ago

    Humm... my video views aren't adding up?

  • Allin 820 days ago

    It causes 505 errors in my newly upgraded 1.8.3 version ! such as :

    Deprecated in 1.8: register_entity_type() was deprecated by elgg_register_entity_type() Called from [#5] /mod/izap-videos/start.php:135
    I had to disable it ! 
  • nolox 812 days ago

    I'm using 1.8.3 elgg version and I have this error izap:izap-videos:izap_videos_lib is not a registered library.

    Anybody has an idea how to resolve it?

  • DhrupDeScoop 812 days ago

    i think that shud be just
    not the one with the
    in the lib name
    that  :  character just looks funny...
    you got a line number reference for the error (from your logs maybe) ?

    same error! in 1.8.3 this plugin is no more working, error: 

    Fatal Error.

    izap:izap-elgg-bridge:init is not a registered library

  • worldopensources 805 days ago

    does any body found the fix for this?

  • worldopensources 805 days ago

    Also is Izap_ Elgg_bridge is also GPL ? or its some other license? basically iam looking for only GPL plugins here, thanks.

  • Emmanuel Lasso 801 days ago

    @worldopensources you have to rename the plugin's folder to "izap-elgg-bridge"

    the downloaded folder has an extra "izap"

  • patriot 791 days ago

    Yes @worldopensources users must read the read me files

  • westor 765 days ago

    A hint for all who may have read the readme files more than carefully and nevertheless do have this error: make sure your izap_elgg_bridge is above the othe izap plugins. That should help.

  • SocioTime 761 days ago

    I have been using this plugin since launching of my site. I have been going through a problem. When anyone upload a video using youtube url the view counts goes nicely ..but suddenly it comes back to 1 view and not increase from 1. However in some cases it is ok. www.sociotime.com is the site. Will be grateful if anyone helps me to find out whats going wrong. Anyway, I would like to thank Izap for developing such a wonderful plugin.

  • Flexx 761 days ago
