README

hh_video_extender is a TYPO3 extension. Extends sys_file_reference video/media. Added attributes to select in content element (eg textmedia) e.g.: muted, loop, controls, previewImage and so on.

Extends TYPO3 core videorenderer with properties like:

  • for vimeo and youtube: defer loading (uses javascript to load video resource after page load)
  • for youtube: loop, controls, relatedVideos, autoplay
  • for internal videos webp, mp4 and so on: loop, muted, preload, controls

Installation

... like any other TYPO3 extension extensions.typo3.org

Features

  • added default html5 video attributes to enable at the TYPO3 backend
  • no changes in FLUID required
  • automatically add TypoScript, can be disabled in the extension configuration (BE). Then you can choose it from template-modul = static-templates.
  • previewImage / poster-image can be set in the backend directly in the content-element
  • defaultPreviewImage can be set too as fallback (constants-editor)
  • you can overwrite the previewImage witch is set at the content-element (constants-editor)
  • you can output the preview image always as additonal img-tag instead of poster-attribute (constants-editor)
  • determines whether in the same directory as the mp4 video synonymous webm or ogg / ogv / ogm videos are with the same name, if so they are added as source

Todos

  • move preview-image to a css background solution

Deprecated

  • currently nothing

Explanations

  • Option "defer" uses JavaScript which is included, but it is recommended to use your own JavaScript or copy this to your JavaScript library. Cause of loading extra file for a view lines of code.

TypoScript Constants

  • TypoScript constants are editable via the Constants-Editor at the TYPO3 backend.
includeCss

Enable or disable automaticaly inclusion of the CSS file(s) of this Extension (default: on). The file is automatically included only when it is needed. See FLUID file: Video.html.

includeJavaScript

Enable or disable automaticaly inclusion of the JavaScript file(s) of this Extension (default: on). The file is automatically included only when it is needed. See FLUID file: Video.html.

previewImage

Set the path to the default previewImage, this image is also used as fallback if no PreviewImage is set at the ContentElement (CE).

previewImage_alt

Set the previewImage html-alt-attribute.

previewImage_title

Set the previewImage html-title-attribute.

previewOverride

Overwrites the preview image that was inserted via the ContentElement (CE) (default: off).

showAllwaysPreviewImageAsImage

Default show PreviewImage as html-poster-attribute. If you turn this option on, the PreviewImage will always be output as img tag as well (default: off). Only valid for local videos, not for youtube and vimeo etc!

clickPreviewImageToShowVideo

Should the video only be visible after clicking on the PreviewImage? Default: off - as soon as the video is loaded, the video is displayed immediately. This option only hides the preview-image (-wrapper), no autoplay of the video! This option uses JavaScript which is included, but it is recommended to use your own JavaScript or copy this to your JavaScript library. Cause of loading extra file for a view lines of code. (default: off).

IMPORTENT NOTICE

  • Vimeo is not tested!
  • If you have problems with autoplay video on IE/EDGE then try to set "options.preload" to "auto".
  • poster attribute only works if preload is set to 'none', but you have the option to set the preview image as img-tag: see features
