Re: arc_youtube

Great plug in – been using it for a while – however… on the 4.2.0 site that I’m building I’m getting:

Tag error: <txp:arc_youtube video=“HsG2rJvDKjM” /> -> Notice: Undefined variable: p on line 70

Sorry for being incredibly slow at responding. I believe that the latest version of the plugin (v0.2.1) should eliminate this error. Let me know if it still isn’t working and I will investigate further (and hopefully a bit quicker). Download the latest version of the plugin over on my website.

Re: arc_youtube

After reading about wet’s Tube Fittings site yesterday I’ve added an aspect ratio to arc_youtube. From version 0.3 you now just need to specify a width or height and an aspect ratio, or you can specify a width and height as before, to size the embedded video.

I’ve also thrown in a couple of extra options: videos can be shown in HD by default and there’s an enhanced privacy setting (which according to Youtube stops the use of cookies).

Re: arc_youtube

I’ve installed the latest version and it see,s to me that my videos changed ratio with black borders…
Can you send me a link to the previous version of arc_youtube?
Thanks in advance.

Here’s a link to arc_youtube v0.2.1. You shouldn’t need to downgrade though. You can still define a width and height like in the earlier versions – this overrides any aspect ratio. I assume your issue is with black borders in the video rather than around the player?

Re: arc_youtube

Andy, it would be helpful if the topic start contained all the information about the current release of the plugin and a working URL (and perhaps a summary of what was added/fixed in each version). That way, if this thread becomes a few pages long, people don’t have to search the entire thread to find a working download URL ;)
The info link on textpattern.org is broken as well.

Fixed the link(s), thanks for pointing it out.
