Markdown Usage

You can use this plugin in your Markdown files. It allows videos to be easy rendered without using any HTML in your Markdown.

Basic Examples:

Put the code in there. Watch the HTML spew out.

youtube=8GLMe371RuI

Make sure you left a break line before and after the code if your video is not showing up

You can add a start point in seconds too like this

youtube=8GLMe371RuI?start=60

Output:

<div class="youtube-video"><iframe width="853" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/8GLMe371RuI?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe><div class="youtube-title"><h2>All About PhileCMS</h2></div></div>

Theme Usage

There will now be a new twig function called youtube. It takes a YouTube ID, and renders the HTML for the video!

Basic Examples:

Put the code in there. Watch the HTML spew out. Assumes you have set Video: 8GLMe371RuI in your pages meta.

{{ youtube(meta.video) }}

Output:

<div class="youtube-video"><iframe width="853" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/8GLMe371RuI?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe><div class="youtube-title"><h2>All About PhileCMS</h2></div></div>

Config

Here are the settings. See the above output for where everything goes.

'wrapper_class' => 'youtube-video', // parent class for iframe
'title_class' => 'youtube-title', // div clas for video title
'show_title' => true, // get the title
'title_tag' => 'h2', // wrap the title in this tag, can be false for none
'video_height' => 480, // standard height
'video_width' => 853 // standard width

Fixed heights and widths?

Because clients are crazy and will try to add a video at a bad size. I like to control what they are doing in the theme. I know what size will work better than they do.

Why Use?

Clients are crazy. You want to make sure the HTML output is good and not a huge mess. Also autofetching the title is sweet.
