[Solved] VideoBox stopped working

Recommended Posts

communicreations

Don't know if anyone else is having this problem, but VideoBox Plugin no longer seems to be working. All videos get replaced with a 15-second duration video that looks a little like sparks flying across a black background. I disabled all other plugins and it was still happening. So I went and tried it on a blank WordPress install on a local machine and same problem.

The new video widget does work and appears to be the best workaround.

Hello there!  that's happened to me also, the solution is really simple.
First, check if your video is in mp4 format. 
then load your video into the two options (Upload MP4 Video, add Vimeo URL, or add YouTube URL And also in! Alternate Video Format (.webm) )
and that's all.

I hope it helps you :) if it does not work put the link.

Thanks Edgar. I already removed the instances, but I will keep this in in mind if I use VideoBox again.

      I have found that many of the components, especially lists, do not work in the Edge browser. 
      For example https://nkdagility.com/ has 6 video boxes that only render in Chrome and do not show in Edge.

      I have to admit to being baffled.
      I'm trying to embed a video (from my WP media library) within a WP post using the videobox section shortcode.
      The shortcode section popup only allows two items to be configured - the section type, in this case videobox - and a unique id. There's no URL or other parameters such as autoplay or loop which are available within the Pagelines editor.
      Whatever I put in the unique ID makes no difference to what is shown which seems to be a default video with stars or white noise on a black background.
      I assume I need to define this ID somewhere else, or maybe WP has done it for me?
      HELP!
       
      PS This is the page source generated when a shortcode is added within the WP post editor
      <!-- VideoBox | Section --> <section id="videobox_1675853156" class="pl-sn pl-col-sm-12 pl-col-sm-offset-0 pl-sn-videobox" data-object="PL_VideoBox" data-clone="1675853156" data-level="0"><div class="pl-sn-wrap"><div class="pl-sn-pad fix" data-bind="pledit: true" > <div class="video-highlight"><h3 class="video-title" data-bind="pltext: vb_title"></h3></div> <div class="pl-video-box" data-bind="plcallback: { vb_autoplay: vb_autoplay(), vb_loop: vb_loop(), vb_controls: vb_controls(), vb_video: vb_video()}" data-callback="videobox"> <video id="280414138" autoplay loop > <source src="https://www.handinhandmanchester.org.uk/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-videobox/default.mp4?r=280414138" type="video/mp4" /> No browser html5 video. </video> <script> jQuery('#280414138')[0].load(); </script> </div> </div></div></section> </div>  
      If I add a videobox section using the Pagelines page editor the page source generated includes my video:
      <!-- VideoBox | Section --> <section id="videobox_udvu4uz" class="pl-sn pl-col-sm-12 pl-col-sm-offset-0 pl-sn-videobox" data-object="PL_VideoBox" data-clone="udvu4uz" data-level="0"><div class="pl-sn-wrap"><div class="pl-sn-pad fix" data-bind="pledit: true" > <div class="video-highlight"><h3 class="video-title" data-bind="pltext: vb_title"></h3></div> <div class="pl-video-box" data-bind="plcallback: { vb_autoplay: vb_autoplay(), vb_loop: vb_loop(), vb_controls: vb_controls(), vb_video: vb_video()}" data-callback="videobox"> <video id="429558737" autoplay loop > <source src="https://www.handinhandmanchester.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/HIHWelcome.mp4?r=429558737" type="video/mp4" /> No browser html5 video. </video> <script> jQuery('#429558737')[0].load(); </script> </div> </div></div></section>

      The section/plugin has me baffled, I hate to admit that.

      Can this be used for Youtube Videos or can it only play videos from the sites Media? I have attempted everything I can think of to get Youtube Videos to load and play, all to no avail.

      Hi there, I have added some videos on this page http://bikeelectricsydney.com.au/videos/
      They are set NOT to autoplay but all auto play on load of the page...?
      any ideas?

      I am wondering how to embed VIMEO Videos and YouTube (a market standard) into this "BOX". It simply dos not work now.
      Up to now in DMS
      it worked with shortcodes like [pl_video type="vimeo" id="xxxxxxx"] the advantage ... quick  and right sized (without black Strips on top/side)  
      I feel this is a downgrade of functionality, as I alredy posted. Is the "box" name really worth naming "video box" with these limitations?
      @Andrew I told you I will notify, once I feel downgrades - see also: please do not dorngrade funtionality / Strategic  resommendation
