Grid and Massonry Video?

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I have a couple joomla articles that have the <video> html tag in the content. Also, i have 1 article that uses iframe for a video off vimeo. I've added these articles to the content inside my Zentools 2 masonry layout but they don't display.

Some of my articles contain images and some contain video.

I've tried to drag and drop both the image and video blocks into the masonry layout but only the images display.

Alternatively, the Grid layout does seem to work with the iframe articles but not the video html articles

Is this expected functionality?

Hi paul,
Are you using the strip tag option for the introtext? That may be stripping it out. Otherwise please post a link so I can see what's happening.

Thanks!

I'm actually finding that most of the zentools2 layouts don't support the video html tags i've used in the article content but some of them suppport the iframe videos. Neither the iframe or the video articles have introtext. Should i add it? I remember that was a solution to another issue i had but i don't remember where it was. You reminded me of stripping html. I'm using the jce editior so i'll check it's settings and that admin has no filtering. I'm pretty sure that those settings are correct though.

Here is a link to one page that it's not working in (Grid example). The first content is a vimeo iframe video and it works. 2 videos at the bottom are html video tags. Sorry in advance for the slow loading.

I've just gone back to add the "intro" class to the paragraphs surrounding the video tags. Just to see if that was the issue. It didn't resolve the problem.

Hi Paul,

Is it possible to add the non functional extension to its own page?

Cheers

You mean the zentools2 module with no menu or any other module?

BTW... i'm looking at this also.. i see the 2 errors.. One of them i think i can explain...

i used to have a custom html module in the header that played background music.. I wanted to turn down the volume on load.. so, i added some css and javascipt..

The custom HTML module is unpublished now.. but the css and javascipt exists in the template... so let me elaborate further.

here is the custom.css file in public_html\prod\joomla\templates\venture\css
#topwrap.fullwidth {width:100%}
#top1 {margin-top:-30px}
.rotate90 {
    -webkit-transform: rotate(90deg);
    -moz-transform: rotate(90deg);
    -o-transform: rotate(90deg);
    -ms-transform: rotate(90deg);
    transform: rotate(90deg);
}

audio { width: 45px; display: block; margin:20px; }

The audio was added for my background music which is now unpublished. The rotate is a class i've been adding to a few pictures i needed to rotate 90 degrees. I'm not sure what the top1 and topwrap are for.. but i think we tried to use them for some other fix.

In the backend of the Venture template.. under settings tab.. Custom scipt - Before closing head tag (Add Google Analytics here)

i added (without the /* and */)
/*<scipt type='text/javascipt'>    function setVolume()    {        mySound=document.getElementById('backgroundsound');        mySound.volume=0.05;    }    window.onload=setVolume;    </scipt>*/

I added the comment things to try and turn it off.

Hi Paul,

I can see one video on the top module are the ones not working added the same way?

Do you have the jce editor enabled for iframes?

Cheers

Just in case in regard to JCE - from the JCE site

"In the JCE Control Panel, click on the Editor Profiles button.

Click on the Profile name that the user, usergroup or component is assigned to, eg: 'Default'

Click on the Plugin Parameters tab, then on the Media Support tab.

Check that the Allow IFrames is set to Yes."

Hey there Paul,

Ya the video at the top uses iframe "Joomla! How to remove the login option and move the menu to a horizontal menu". Since it is working i know the jce is set correctly.

The issue is with the 2 videos at the bottom. "Marvel Live Video3" and "Marvel Live Video2"

These 2 videos use the html5 <video> tags. Here is an example of the article content
<p class="intro">
	<video controls="controls" width="400" height="300">
		<source src="images/ArticlePictures/Jacob/20150207_113816.mp4" type="video/mp4" />Your browser does not support the video tag.</video>
</p>

Do the videos tagged with the video html5 display in normal joomla articles?

The "Joomla! How to remove the login option and move the menu to a horizontal menu" video uses iframe. It appears to work as expected. So, i'm fairly sure that iframe works on the grid layout.

When you say normal article, do you mean when you drill in to the article itself. If so, it works. For example, if you click on the title in the grid (which is displaying) it will open the article and you can see the video.

Hi

In what content are you using the video tag?

I did help a user use the video tag for a zentools2 grid

I put it into articles and let the module pull the video. For me only the iframe works. The does not recognise the video tag.
