Refinery CMS Video.js

Simple video extension for Refinery CMS. It adds a 'Videos' tab to admin menu where you can manage videos. And adds an 'add video' link to WYMeditor on 'Pages'.

There are three ways to include videos in your project.

  • You can embedded video (like youtube or vimeo iframes)
  • You can upload files
  • You can use link to external source

Video (instance of Refinery::Videos::Video model) aggregates different sources (files and links, one or many).

The instance method Video#to_html renders an html video tag like:

<video id="my_video_1" class="video-js vjs-default-skin" controls
  preload="auto" width="640" height="264"
  poster="my_video_poster.png"
  data-setup="{}">
  <source src="oceans-clip.mp4" type='video/mp4'>
  <source src="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.webm" type='video/webm'>
</video>

This content can be added to a page in WYMeditor, or everywhere in your view like:

<div class='video'>
  <%= @my_video.to_html %>
</div>

This extension:

  • Uses the Video.js player to playback video (except embedded video, of course).
  • Allows you to manage playback configuration (poster image, width, height, autoplay, controls, etc).
  • Allows you to insert video to pages using WYMeditor, by inserting an HTML code with video (or iframe) tag.
  • Automatically downloads the video.js library on your website frontend.
