Video Embed Code Cleaner

Project description

Cleans and updates your video’s embed code.

Over time, the embed codes used for videos from various providers have changed and evolved, to make them more and more compatible with a broader set of devices.

This is where vecc is useful: it detects the video provider and id from a given embed code, and provides various utilities to clean this code and validate that the video is still available.

Install

Either use pip, which is the easiest way:

$ pip install vecc

Either download the tarball from http://pypi.python/org/pypi/vecc, untar it, and install it manually:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

$ vecc -h
usage: vecc [-h] [--version] {clean,validate} ...

Video Embed Code Cleaner.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help        show this help message and exit
  --version         show program's version number and exit

sub-commands:
  {clean,validate}
    clean           clean the embed code
    validate        validate that the video is still available

Sub-commands

  • clean: takes a video embed code, and returns the video id, provider, and new embed code. Takes an optional -v|--validate parameter, to check if the video is still available.
  • validate: takes a video id and provider, and check if it’s still available.

$ vecc clean '<object width="480" height="381"><param name="movie" value="http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/k6Lg9UXest3kho5p9X&related=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/k6Lg9UXest3kho5p9X&related=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="381" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always"></embed></object>' -v
