Display link content type as embedded video, provide a video gallery view

Project Description


This package adds a new view to Plone’s Link content type. If the remote url of the link is a video supported by p4a.videoembed it will embed video.

For more information read the wiki at:


The code is a fork of another project nmd.ploneaslinkvideoembed


  • Plone
  • p4a.videoembed

Why this package ?

I needed a way to display video links in a thumbnail gallery style view This provides a simple view for collections of video links. Currently thumbnails from Vimeo are the only ones supported (more to come).



  • replaced collective.colorbox with collective.prettyphoto [pigeonflight]
  • do not purge viewmethods [cleder]
  • use metal:content-core fill-slot=”content-core” to simplify pagetemplate [cleder]
  • added embeddedvideos view to Collections and Folders [pigeonflight]
  • known to work with Plone 4.2 and 4.3


  • collective.colorbox with collective.prettyphoto
  • this version requires Plone 4 as it uses the json module which ships with Python 2.6 [pigeonflight]
  • now properly supports and youtube videos [pigeonflight]


  • version that is now compatible with Plone 4 [pigeonflight]


  • updated viddler code to compensate when url is missing a trailing slash [pigeonflight]


  • prevent uneccessary repetition of queries to oembed providers [pigeonflight]


  • fixed bug where normal links would become broken when product is installed [pigeonflight]

  • thumbnails will be forced to 200px width in the @@embeddedvideos collection view [pigeonflight]


  • added youtube support (retrieves metadata via a primitive oembed query - relies on json format) [pigeonflight]
