AllVideos Joomla Plugin

extensions free allvideos params in j25

First of all, make sure you always download the latest version of AllVideos (currently version 4.x).
The following documentation applies to AllVideos version 3.1 or newer.

Installation

AllVideos comes in one unified installer for Joomla! versions 1.5, 2.5 & 3.0. After you download the zip file from our homepage or the AllVideos product page, upload and install the plugin by using the Joomla! installer. Navigate to:

  • Extensions >> Install/Uninstall (for Joomla! 1.5) or
  • Extensions >> Extension Manager (for Joomla! 2.5 or newer)

…to install the plugin.

Finally, navigate to Extensions >> Plugin Manager (all Joomla! versions) and publish the plugin. To edit the plugin parameters, simply click on its name “AllVideos (by JoomlaWorks)”.

Upgrading

Follow the same procedure as above. New files will simply override the old ones upon installation of a newer package.

Simple Options

allvideos-params-in-j25.pngThis is a screenshot of the plugin parameters (screenshot taken from the plugin’s latest version in Joomla! 1.5 – parameters are identical in other Joomla! versions of course). The parameters contain tooltips with more info were necessary. Usually the only things you need to change are the video dimensions.

Custom options per video

Easy, descriptive syntax for media embedding. Use: {formatORprovider}filenameORvideoID{/formatORprovider}
You can also use syntax like: {format/provider}filenameORvideoID|width|height|autoplay{/format/provider}

…where “width” and “height” are the media dimensions in pixels and “autoplay” is enabled using 1 (use 0 to disable it).

For example, a YouTube video with 600×450 dimensions that autoplays on page load would be displayed adding this plugin tag in your Joomla! article (or K2 item, or Virtuemart product etc.): {youtube}he73js822|600|450|1{/youtube}

Please note that for providers like YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Blip.tv, Justin.tv, SoundCloud, Twitvid & yFrog you can also use the entire video page URL instead of just the ID.

MVC Templating

The feature trully setting apart all our plugins from any other Joomla! plugin are their MVC architecture, currently available in Joomla! for components and modules only. That means you can use HTML and CSS template overrides inside your Joomla! template and completely change the way the plugin elements display on your website!

So you can either choose to use the versatile base styling of the plugin or simply override it (both the HTML and CSS code) by copying the plugin’s folder /plugins/content/jw_allvideos/tmpl/Classic in Joomla! 1.5 or the folder /plugins/content/jw_allvideos/jw_allvideos/tmpl/Classic in Joomla! 2.5 or newer TO your Joomla! template’s /templates/YOURJOOMLATEMPLATE/html/jw_allvideos/ folder (create it if it doesn’t exist), as you would with components and modules.

Whatever changes you do from now on within this folder, will completely override the plugin’s output, exactly as you would with any other MVC component or module.

The good thing about MVC templating is you don’t have to worry about future updates breaking your styling.

Available tags in AllVideos

Below are two tables describing what audio/video formats and video providers are supported by AllVideos.

In the audio/video formats table you can see the type, paths and what Joomla! tag to enter within your content items/articles. Please note that if for example you divide your video/audio folder into subfolders, then you need to specify the folder path AFTER the master video/audio folder path.

In plain English this means that if your video exists in images/stories/videos/summer/trip_to_paris.flv and your “Local Video Folder” parameter is set to images/stories, you would simply enter {flv}summer/trip_to_paris{/flv}.
