YouTube Video heigth was created by Derek Davis
Hi,
I am trying to embed a YouTube video in the IntroText of an item but when I view the item I Have 2 problems:

1. If FullText is set to show I cannt see IntroText (If I hide FullText then IntroText display)
2. I am embeding a Youtube video in the IntroText but the height of the video changes when I open the item. I am able to manipulate the width but not the height for some reason. Where in the code must I make a chage to fix this? Here is my embed code :

<object width="480" height="295"><param name="movie" value="www.youtube.com/v/J6SESEXGCkE&hl=en_US&fs=1" />
<p><embed src="www.youtube.com/v/J6SESEXGCkE&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="295" />



Here is the item: belize.newstotality.com/index.php/component/k2/item/664-trio-murder


I have also tried in the FullText area with the same result


Thank You,
Derek

Hello derek,

1. Have you specified an Introtext using your editor's read more button, or by using two different editors?

2. Please use AllVideos fro youtube videos.
It is already styled and it comes bundled with the quickstart package.

I believe im using 2 different editors in the joomla backend.

I would use All video if I were creating the articles manually but I'm actually scraping them from RSS feeds using a joomla component. That component creates tha embed code.

I also realize that this may be a K2 problem and not a template problem but do you know of any mods I could do to view the video properly?

Thanks,
Derek

The fulltext still does not show if I enable both. Thanks alot for your help. I use the joomla extension: 3dwebdesign.org/joomla-scraper

It basically does the same thing as this one: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/social-web/social-edition/automatic-articles/13573 which is free but it was not working for me on joomla 3.2 and even when I tried 2.5 it threw many php errors.

I found this other one after which seems to be better but it doesnt support youtube feeds and is more expensive: foobla.com/joomla/obgrabber

Thanks again,
Derek

Interesting. I will look into that extension, thank you for sharing.
I had issues with Feedgator myself too.

In item.php a check is present and checks whether the fulltext is empty. It could be related on how the extension strores the articles.

In this version I am omitting this check (you don't probably need in your implementation).
