YouTube, Vimeo & Co.

From MSX - Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

It is possible to play YouTube, Vimeo, and similar content with the video/audio plugin actions. Currently, a plugin for YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Twitch, Facebook, Wistia, and SoundCloud is available. In the future, more video/audio hosting platforms could be added. There is also a JavaScript plugin API that lets you create your own video/audio plugin. If you are a developer and you would like to create your own plugin, please see Video/Audio Plugin.

Note: There is no guarantee that all content can be played on each platform.

Syntax[edit]

Action syntax of plugin actions
Syntax Example Since Version Description
video:plugin:{URL}

video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/youtube.html?id={ID}
video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/vimeo.html?id={ID}
video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/dailymotion.html?id={ID}
video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/twitch.html?id={ID}
video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/facebook.html?id={ID}
video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/wistia.html?id={ID}
video:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/soundcloud.html?id={ID}

0.1.40

Plays a plugin video. The {ID} part must be replaced with the corresponding platform content ID (e.g. the YouTube video ID).

Note: Also for audio hosting platforms (e.g. SoundCloud) it makes sense to use the video plugin action, because they also provide a visual output.

audio:plugin:{URL}

audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/youtube.html?id={ID}
audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/vimeo.html?id={ID}
audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/dailymotion.html?id={ID}
audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/twitch.html?id={ID}
audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/facebook.html?id={ID}
audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/wistia.html?id={ID}
audio:plugin:http://msx.benzac.de/plugins/soundcloud.html?id={ID}

0.1.40

Plays a plugin audio file. The {ID} part must be replaced with the corresponding platform content ID (e.g. the YouTube video ID). This action works in the same way as video:plugin:{URL}, except that the video screen is not displayed. Instead, the background screen is displayed. If the corresponding content item provides a background property, it is used, otherwise the next available background property (at higher level) is used.
