Video in Features

Recommended Posts

Sorry but I really don't understand this :( I would like to place a video or video link as a feature section on my page. The support section (http://support.pagelines.me/docs/sections/features/) simply states "Feature HTML (video embeds etc, In Media Area) This option allows you to embed videos into your features media area. " but doesn't explain anything about how to do this . The forums has a thread http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/25319-upload-video-to-feature-slider/?hl=feature+video#entry149105 where Rob talks about pasting an url into the Feature HTML section but also talks about an 'Old Embed Code' which is gobbledygook to me. I pasted the url for the video into the box and nothing happens. Completely lost here and would really love to get my video embedded so help would be appreciated greatly ! :) Thanks in advance - Richard

HI,

 

When you go to sites such as YouTube, Vimeo etc.. they provide a code that allows you to embed the clip into your website. You will need to use this embed code to display your video in Features slider.

Ah ok thanks - I live in China so don't use vimeo, youtube or anything like that as it is all blocked. I'll try to see if I can get the code from the youku web site which is where the video is. It is 48mb in size so read that this would really make the page load slow if it was hosted on my server .... is this correct ? Thanks very much Danny !

Yes, most likely, thats why you would probably want to embed the video.

Just managed to get the code and placed it in the relevant 'html media area' on the Feature set up page. The video now shows and I can play it whilst on the Features page of the Features menu in WP Admin. However it is not showing when the page loads in the browser. Any ideas ? Thanks.

Can you provide a link to the site in question and also, add your video embed code to our pastie service and provide a link to the paste.

Its working for me, but you may need to change the width to fit your Feature slider.

I used the following settings:

and changed the width to achieve the following look.

OK GOT IT ! I had an image loaded under 'media area - image (optional) which I thought would just replace the first movie frame image on the screen. It seems however that it totally covers the movie. Soon as I deleted the image I can see/play the movie. Thanks for your help !

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      Hi,
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:

      Hi,
      So I used to use the Video Background extension that was offered here on pagelines, but until recently it continued to function.  Yesterday however it ceased to work and since it has been removed and no longer supported I've been forced to find a new way to show the youtube video that used to be on my background.
      I know that there is the option to upload videos for background, needing both an mp4 and ogv version.  However, since this is a youtube video I don't have any source files to upload.
      I have since turned to using the mb.YTPlayer wordpress plugin.  It seems to be working just fine on its part, as you can see a sliver of it playing just below my footer.  My issue though it that it doesn't show up behind my main body content.  Now it was my understanding that the backgrounds were defaulted to transparent in DMS2 and that this shouldn't be happening.  I've tried several CSS transparency codes to no avail, so my question is how am I able to get the video that is showing up right beneath the footer in other areas?  Either on a section by section basis or for the entire body?

      Hello,
      I'm having trouble getting my Powerloop layout the way that I want...
      I'd like to have the same layout as the question below but instead of an image I'm using video.
      I have my media shortcode above everything but the title is still above it in my page and when I inspect it.
      My settings:
      [powerloop_media]  
      [powerloop_title class="plHtxt" align="center"] 
      [powerloop_content class="plHContent" align="left"]
      [powerloop_author class="plHauthor" align="left"] | [powerloop_date format="F j, Y"]
      Another problem I am having is that I cant create space between the video and the content..If i add padding or an margin to my content class it adds that spacing to the video as well.
      Any ideas on how I can fix this?
