The EmbedVideo function will create a link to video/audio material on Youtube, Vimeo and a few other similar sites

Usage

The EmbedVideo parser function expects to be called in any of the following ways:

  • {{#ev:service|id}}
  • {{#ev:service|id|width}}
  • {{#ev:service|id|width|align}}
  • {{#ev:service|id|width|align|desc}}
  • {{#evp:service|id|desc}}
  • {{#evp:service|id|desc|align}}
  • {{#evp:service|id|desc|align|width}}

Where:

  • service is the name of a video sharing service (See "service name" in the list below)
  • id is the id of the video to include
  • width (optional) is the width in pixels of the viewing area (height will be determined automatically)
  • align (optional) is an alignment (float) attribute. May be "left" or "right".
  • desc (optional) is a short description to display beneath the video when it is aligned

For example, to include the famous "evolution of dance" YouTube video, you'd enter:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg}}

And if you wanted scaled down to thumbnail size, on the right with a short description, you could use:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg|100|right|This is an embedded video!}}

An example in GAMEO can be seen at Calvary Mennonite Church (Paden, Oklahoma, USA).
