New mod for video embedding?
« on: August 24, 2014, 11:50:27 AM »
The mod we're using to embed videos...

 - ...doesn't support https:// URLs.
 - ...uses outdated code to embed videos. For example, if YouTube videos were embedded using the method recommended by Google a lot of them would work on phones and tablets.
 - ...was abandoned three years ago: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/?mod=977

I think we should switch to something that's actively maintained.

Simple Audio Video Embedder looks like a good candidate:

It seems to work pretty well:

The second video is 1) the first result for "Vimeo Pizza" 2) not safe for work. That's an... interesting.... kneading technique.

I will probably install the new mod. I need to test the uninstall of the old one and the installation of the new one. I've been busy lately, so I'll try to get to it soon. Thanks!

New mod has been installed. Enjoy.

Test of YouTube (over SSL) which we didn't support before:

Steve,

I hope that means that we (I mean the Moderators) won't have to go into the members' posts to fix the URLs to achieve the embedding function.

No, we shouldn't have to do anything. This new mod even handles https:// URLs

Thanks Steve!
Few great accomplishments are achieved single-handedly, Most have their Norgays.
How do you spot a Norgay?
You start with the people with the funny names.

Thank you!

It looks like the new mod uses the old Vimeo player. The old Vimeo player doesn't work on mobile devices. Is it difficult to upgrade a mod? If not I think I'll try to get it fixed upstream.

I can easily upgrade it if they fix it.
