In progress ADDING VIDEO TO WIDGET

Post by kevinp on September 19th 2014, 7:03 pm

Hello

Could someone please tell me if it's possible to insert a video into one of the sidebar widgets?
If so, which one should I use and how would I do it?
Thanking you for all your help so far.
Kevin

Try this

Code:
<iframe width="###" height="###"
src="VIDEO_LINK">
</iframe>

Replace ### with the number size to your liking.
Replace VIDEO_LINK with the link to the video

Thank you for the help.
The only problem I now have, is to figure out where I put the code in?

You put it in the widget.

Administration Panel => Modules => Portal & Widgets =>

If the widget is in the portal go to:

Portal management => Structure => Press the Orange gear icon at a widget and add the code.

If it's on the forum go to:

Forum widgets management => Press the Orange gear icon at a widget and add the code

I created a new widget and put the code in. I see the box, but no video. I followed your instructions exactly.
I must still be doing something wrong.

Hey KevinP,
What type of video are you trying to add? Could you please provide your URL & the widget code you have used?

Try this:

Go to the video you want and there should be options to share the video. Get the code to share and add it to the widget.

Here is the video url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=70V0a1tjDTA


I put in the code as above and added this URL. I see the widget box, but no video. It is one of my videos by the way.
Thanks for the help.

Remove this:
Code:
<br />

And get the embed code from YouTube, they may be using something different other than an <iframe> tag.

The above code works, but it's much too big for the widget width. Thank you anyway for trying. I changed the size and it's a bit better now.
