It can also be configured to search and pick from your own YouTube/Vimeo video feeds.

How to use

Document Types

You will need to add the Videolizer data type to one or more of your document types so that the editors can paste in the video URLs.

In your Views

There are two ways to use the values from the property editor in the views.

@(Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<VideolizerVideo>("video").GetSimpleEmbed("600", "300"))

or like this

@{ var video = Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<VideolizerVideo>("video"); 
	<iframe width="100%" height="281" src="@video.EmbedUrl" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

You can get up and running with the project in visual studio. There are 3 main parts to this project:

  • Videolizer: This is the umbraco plugin portion of the project which mainly deals with the propery editor files and functionality unique to Umbraco
  • Videolizer.Core: We split out the business logic of the plugin, so that you can utilize some of the features in .net projects outside of Umbraco
  • VideoLizer.Web: This is a simple umbraco install to test the plugin updates. Building the solution will copy all the nessesary files videolizer files into the VideoLizer.Web project. I have included the SQL Compact database, so that you simply need to run the project to get started. The backoffice username is admin and password is password
