# apostrophe-video-widgets

# Inherits from: apostrophe-widgets

Provides the apostrophe-video widget, which displays videos, powered by apostrophe-video-field and apostrophe-oembed. The video widget accepts the URL of a video on any website that supports the oembed (opens new window) standard.

Configurations differ between website implementations, but standard supported providers include, but are not limited to:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Facebook
  • Dailymotion
  • Flickr
  • Scribd
  • Photobucket

In some cases the results are refined by oembetter filters configured by the apostrophe-oembed module. It is possible to configure new filters for that module to handle video sites that don't natively support oembed.

Videos are not actually hosted or stored by Apostrophe.

# Options

# player: true

If you have set lean: true for the apostrophe-assets module, the standard oembed-based video player does not get pushed to the browser, as it is part of the legacy jQuery-based frontend.

However, you may opt in to a similar player that uses only a few lines of lean JavaScript by setting the player option of this module to true. You may of course skip this and write your own.
