Problem: Video embed Codes are annoying. Solution: We developed this Wordpress plugin to embed videos with one simple line (the link to the video page). The plugin works with oEmbed-compatible sites like NFB.ca and Vimeo.com. We willl talk a little bit about what oEmbed is, how this plugin works, and how it can help you share films online.

  • The link on the slide #5 is incorrect, it should be http://nfb.ca/history/ but they don’t want you to see that apparently. Great work for hiding all thoses messy urls with oEmbed, but there’s (obviously) others ways for creating elegant urls without it. (hint: it’s a Django common mistake for newbies..)

ONF/NFB - An Easier Way to Embed Video in Your Blog Presentation Transcript

  • 1. An Easier Way to Embed Video in Your Blog or how oEmbed can help you keep your sanity by Stephane Jolicoeur and Audrey Savard
  • 2. Who are we?
  • 3. The NFB
  • 4. NFB.ca : film streaming
  • 5. • http://nfb.ca/playlist/exhibition-nfb- photos-70-years-images/viewing/ nfb-70-years/
  • 6. The Problem
  • 7. the insanity of embedding
  • 8. you have a design to keep
  • 9. • deformed webpage or blog post because of an embedded film, picture or link is not acceptable
  • 10. Let’s face it, embed code is strange!
  • 11. CASE in POINT : EMBED CODE <embed src="http://media1.nfb.ca/medias/flash/ ONFflvplayer-gama.swf" width="516" height="337" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" autostart="false" autoplay="false" flashvars="mID=IDOBJ3521&bufferTime=10&wid th=516&height=337&image=http://media1.nfb.ca/ medias/nfb_tube/thumbs_large/2009/70ans- tvbig.jpg&autostart=false&autoplay=false&show WarningMessages=false&streamNotFoundDelay= 15&lang=en&getPlaylistOnEnd=true&playlist_id= REL3521&embeddedMode=true"></embed>
  • 12. Example The result :
  • 13. • ugly embed code in your blog posts when you edit posts. • changes are error prone for HTML novices. • the HTML code can be parsed by the wp tag filters and be crippled or not even shown!
  • 14. One needs to do a lot of leg work - get the title, author, etc when one wants to quote properly.
  • 15. There is a solution
  • 16. Let the machines do the hard work
  • 17. • it was created by pownce -- it's magic, almost... • it is an exchange format for media, links and more...
  • 18. less hacking gives you more time to create content
  • 19. •help your seo with easy linking to the original site •prevent typos when quoting the source
  • 20. IT IS ...
  • 21. oEmbed
  • 22. oEmbed link http://www.nfb.ca/film/strange_invaders/
  • 23. And Because we maintain many blogs ... we cooked up a plugin.
  • 24. Your embeding on oEmbed • copy the url of the content page : http://www.nfb.ca/film/runaway_teaser_3/ • paste it in your blog post • et voilà!
  • 25. No more embed madness
  • 26. Make this easy :
  • 27. What is oEmbed • it’s an exchange format ( meaning machines do the hard work ) • with providers and consumers • made for media, links or rich content. • Magical when implemented fully : discovery aspect
  • 28. An automated exchange between : • Providers : • a streaming site (ie : nfb.ca ) • photo site (ie flickr.com) • ... and • Consumers : • a blog site • a mashup • ...
  • 29. What do the machines speak ? JSON or XML
  • 30. What is exchanged ? • Author information • provider information • thumbnail link • content type • dimension information • html code to do the embedding
  • 31. What is this “discovery” • information is in the headers • no prior knowledge required
  • 32. Discovery links : <head> (...) <link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed" href="http:// www.nfb.ca/remote/services/oembed/?url=http%3A//www.nfb.ca/ film/runaway_teaser_3/&amp;format=json" title="Runaway (Teaser 3) " /> <link rel="alternate" type="text/xml+oembed" href="http://www.nfb.ca/ remote/services/oembed/?url=http%3A//www.nfb.ca/film/ runaway_teaser_3/&amp;format=xml" title="Runaway (Teaser 3) " /> (...) </head>
  • 33. what the machine sees : (JSON ) { "provider_url": "http://www.nfb.ca/", "title": "Runaway (Teaser 3) ", "url": "http://www.nfb.ca/film/runaway_teaser_3/", "html": "<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E- AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="ONFflvplayer-gama" height="337" width="518"><param name=movie value="http://media1.nfb.ca/medias/flash/ONFflvplayer-gama.swf"><param name=quality value=high><param name=allowfullscreen value="true"><param name=allowscriptaccess value="always"><param name=autostart value="false"><param name=flashvars value= "mID=IDOBJ5811&image=http://media1.nfb.ca/medias/nfb_tube/thumbs_large/2009/ Runaway_TeaserAV5_BIG.jpg&width=516&height=337&autostart=false&showWarningMessages=false&str eamNotFoundDelay=15&lang=en&getPlaylistOnEnd=true&embeddedMode=true"><embed src="http:// media1.nfb.ca/medias/flash/ONFflvplayer-gama.swf" height="337" width="518" allowscriptaccess= "always" allowfullscreen="true" autostart="false" flashvars="mID=IDOBJ5811&image=http:// media1.nfb.ca/medias/nfb_tube/thumbs_large/2009/ Runaway_TeaserAV5_BIG.jpg&width=516&height=337&autostart=false&showWarningMessages=false&str eamNotFoundDelay=15&lang=en&getPlaylistOnEnd=true&embeddedMode=true" name="ONFflvplayer- gama"></embed></object>", "author_name": "Cordell Barker", "height": 337, "width": 518, "version": "1.0", "thumbnail_width": 204, "provider_name": "National Film Board of Canada / Office Nationale du Film du Canada", "thumbnail_url": "http://media1.nfb.ca/medias/nfb_tube/thumbs_small/2009/ Runaway_TeaserAV5_small.jpg", "type": "video", "thumbnail_height": 115 }
