Video block
« on: February 23, 2009, 02:16:46 PM »
I am using Auto Embed Video/Audio Clips mod in my forum and I'd like to suggest exploring this feature in a Video Block, which would display a random video from a predefined "playlist".

The playlist would consist of links to videos in youtube or any other services supported by AEVAC and chosen by administrator.

The block would simply choose a random line from the playlist and display a video, which would give us a "video of the moment" effect in the block.

Is it doable?

Random Youtube video embeding is easy to do with a PHP block, just go to the youtube video and copy the 'URL' for embeding, then put a list into the array within the code below:

Use this code in a custom PHP block.
Code: [Select]
$urls = array(
   '',
   '',
   '',
);

$rand = rand(0, count($urls) - 1);

echo '<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="', $urls[$rand], '"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="', $urls[$rand], '" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>';

The list will look like:
Code: [Select]
$urls = array(
   'url1',
   'url2',
   'url3',
   'url4',
);

You forgot to change the movie parameter. ;)

If you look at the portal on the forum in the signature then you will see a youtube video.

This was done by using a bbcode block.
