README

oEmbed

A simple plugin to extract media information from websites, like youtube videos, twitter statuses or blog articles.

Requirements

This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0-beta.23 or later.

If use are looking for CraftCMS 2.5 support use previous project version 1.0.4 which is the latest release for CraftCMS 2.5.

Installing

To install the plugin, follow these instructions.

  1. Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:

     cd /path/to/project
    
  2. Then tell Composer to load the plugin:

     composer require wrav/oembed
    
  3. In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for oEmbed.

Using oEmbed

To use simply call one of the following methods on your field type

{{ entry.field.valid }} # Get the embed object
{{ entry.field.render }} # Renders HTML
{{ entry.field.embed }} # Get the embed object
{{ entry.field.media }} # Get the embed object

We also provide option to use as a Twig variable

{{ craft.oembed.valid(url, options) }}
{{ craft.oembed.render(url, options) }}
{% set embed = craft.oembed.embed(url, options) %}
{% set media = craft.oembed.media(url, options) %}

Updating the embed URL, such as autoplay, rel, mute paramaters. This allows for you to support features the provider might not yet support

{{ 
    entry.oembed_field.render({
        params: {
            autoplay: 1,
            rel: 0,
            mute: 0,
            loop: 1,
            autopause: 1,
        }
    }) 
}}

Updating the width & height attributes on the iframe can be done using the following method, however is CSS is still recommended view for sizing your iframe.

{{ 
    entry.oembed_field.render({
        width: 640,
        height: 480,
    }) 
}}

GraphQL

I recommend enabling caching in the plugin settings menu to speed up the API resolve timing.

Below is an example of a Oembed field called "foobar" add accessing properties from the embed object.

{
  entries {
    id,
    ... on page_page_Entry {
      foobar {
        code,
        providerUrl,
        aspectRatio
      }
    }
  }
}
