Youtube Block - 1.0
« on: June 10, 2012, 05:30:26 AM »
Youtube Block
v1.0

This block allows you to show a Youtube video within a block. I couldn't find an existing block that does this, so I decided to create one myself. The current version is 1.0 and I hope to release v1.1 soon.

Installing is very simple. Just create a new PHP code block and use this code:
Code: [Select]
/**
 * Youtube Block
 *
 * Written for: Simple Portal
 * Written by: Dr. Deejay
 * Compatible with: Simple Portal 2.3
 * Version: 1.0
 *
 * When using this block, you agree that you will,
 * not redistribute this block, with or without any
 * changes. This code may not be used as a base for
 * another software and should not be used for illegal
 * purposes.
*/

$youtube = array();

/**
 * Settings
*/
// The id of the video
$youtube['id'] = 't5AqJww06bw';

// Text to show below the video. Leave empty to disable
$youtube['label'] = 'My video';

// The size of the Youtube block. 1 is the smallest, 3 is the biggest
$youtube['size'] = 1;

/**
 * The Youtube video display block
*/
if(!function_exists('sp_youtube')) {

/**
* The function doesn't exist yet. Create it.
*/
function sp_youtube($vid = '', $label = '', $size = '')
{
// Don't allow html stuff
$vid = htmlspecialchars($vid);

// Check if it is empty. If it is, it's invalid
if(empty($vid))
echo '
<div class="smalltext">Video not found.</div>';

// Let's see what we can do.
else {

// Echo the thing.
echo '
<div class="centertext">
<iframe ' . $size . ' src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/' . $vid . '" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>';

// Show a label?
if(!empty($label))
echo '
<br /><div class="smalltext">' . $label . '</div>';

echo '
</div>';
}
}
}

// Generate the height and width
if($youtube['size'] == 1)
$vidsize = 'width="150" height="100"';
elseif($youtube['size'] == 2)
$vidsize = 'width="300" height="200"';
elseif($youtube['size'] == 3)
$vidsize = 'width="1280" height="720"';
else
$vidsize = 'width="150" height="100"';

// Call the function
sp_youtube($youtube['id'], $youtube['label'], $vidsize);

Enjoy!
Dr. Deejay

Just had a thought ( scary I know).

Is there a way you can make this pop out in a similar way as the Aeva media mod?

This time of morning I should be in bed lol

Basically when you click on an aeva image (hosted via the gallery) the block enlargens.

Ah, I understand. :) It would require Highslide4SMF installed, but I do think it would be possible. :P I'll do this within a few days, please remind me if I don't. :)

Okay forgive me because I haven't gone over the code with a fine tooth comb yet....I love it by the way and am going to try it!  Is there a way to input a YOUTUBE channel somehow and have it bring up a random vid from the channel whenever someone visits the page?  I hope that makes sense.

@Old Fossil: I'm sorry for the late reply, but I couldn't get it to work. :(

@Lolafish: I don't know if Youtube has an api for that, but I could try. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

@Wazza: Thank you, I'm glad you like it. :)

@Boo2: Could you please post the exact code you're using?
