Extension Description: This extension enables a library included with phpBB 3.2 that allows video and audio content from lots of 3rd-party sites to be embedded in forum posts and PMs, using a [media] BBCode, or from simply posting a supported URL in plain text.
This extension is similar to s9e/mediaembed - Embed videos and third-party content without a single BBCode, the difference being this version is for phpBB 3.2 and above (the version by JoshyPHP) works for phpBB 3.1.
This extension is still in early development, and features may be added or removed as we develop it. Your feedback can help us develop it to its full potential.
Extension Version: 1.0.0-RC1
Requirements: phpBB 3.2.0
Planned Features: (subject to change)
- Parse URLs from media sites.
- Parse URLs from media sites inside the [media] tag.
- Add a new (optional) BBCode button for the [media] tag.
- Add help for embedding media content to the BBCodes Help/FAQ page.
- An ACP component where admins can enable/disable the supported sites, giving them control over which sites will be allowed to show embedded content. Also the option to display the [media] BBCode button in posting editors or not.
- Option to prevent usage inside user signatures.
Extension Repository: https://github.com/phpbb-extensions/mediaembed
Usage: There are configuration settings in the
Please note that support for the embedded content, as well as the available sites supported, is handled by the s9e/TextFormatter library...not by phpBB nor this extension. So any issues arising from site content failing to embed properly is beyond the control of this extension and phpBB and its developers, and should be directed towards the developers at s9e.
The following is a list of all the sites currently supported, and examples of the URLs supported from each site: http://s9etextformatter.readthedocs.io/ ... bed/Sites/
Conflicts: Existing video site BBCodes with the same name as a media site ID name (i.e.
youtube). If you already have one of these, then your existing BBCode will take precedence over the one in this plugin. You may continue using your old BBCode but this plugin will ignore any links from that site. You can delete your old BBCode if you want this plugin to handle links from that site. After you delete your old BBCode you must go to
Manage Sitesand enable the site. (Note that by deleting the old BBCode your old posts may no longer render the videos and will display the deleted BBCode tags as text. Experiment with this on a local offline backup of your board first.)
