You know a free converter tool is also need to download before you can used it, at the same time free tool always isn't work well. cheap assignments use MC power point to help you make a wonderful slideshow. Just add some interested photos and nice video or audio file to your presentation to create a memorable slideshow, then convert it to a video file to sharing with your friends and some else.

Free Slideshow Maker ?

Rather downloadable or online. write my assignment I am making a slideshow for my friend because shes moving and were all buying a huge box and putting some memoirs and gifts and stuff in there. So i am in charge of the power point. I tried windows media player and i didn't really like it. Something that gives the power point a unique look and easy to use

Excellent post share on how

Excellent post share on how to make advanced slideshow with embedded video from 3rd party sites. The video production melbourne company shared it as well. The entire tutorial shared over here is impressive keep sharing more with us.

RE:

We can be shown that thing more without trouble and there are some different things which we will discuss in it and through those, we can adjust the genuine measure of structure and there are some primary components do my assignment for me which will be mystery in it and they have demonstrated a ton of new aptitudes and strategies which are leaving to help us in the prospect and I may recommend them to make various more recordings like this which can be more useful for us.

Instructions omission

I ran into trouble following the instructions:


Create a view

Import ddblock_embedded_video views block

Download ddblock_embedded_video views export file from the package ddblock_embedded_video_export.zip at the Download page :

It would have been helpful to have had something more like this:

Create a View

From the Download(link) page, Download ddblock_embedded_video_export.zip, and extract the contents. Open dblock_embedded_video.txt and copy the contents. Now go to Administer > Site Building > Views, and click the Import tab. Leave the View Name blank, and paste the copied file content into the "Past View Code here" field. Click Import, and this will create the ddblock_embedded_video view.

Alternatively, you can use the manual view creation instructions that follow.

Also, a bit of attention to formatting this instruction page so that the manual instructions are clearly a subset of the main instruction flow would be helpful.

I appreciate all the work that's gone into this and if there's any way I could make these changes myself I'd be pleased to do so.

Re: Instructions omission

Thanks for the suggestions for the documentation!!!

I made the improvements in the documentation.
Also for the content type import.

Didn't display vimeo video in the block

I added youtube videos and the vimeo videos to my block youtube thumbnail work fine but vimeo video thumbnail is not showing in the page and the contain. please help I'm using following code in template.php

if (isset($data['thumbnail']['url'])) {
            $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = '<img src="' .$data['thumbnail']['url'] . 
                '" alt="' . $result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_custom_pager_text_va . 
                '"/>';
          }

Thanks in advance

Re: Didn't display vimeo video in the block

To add vimeo thumbnail to the slideshow I use the following code:

            // add vimeo video thumbnail
            if ($result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_embedded_video_url_provider == 'vimeo') {
              if (isset($result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_embedded_video_url_data)) {
                $data=unserialize($result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_embedded_video_url_data);
                if (isset($data['emthumb']['filepath'])) {
                  $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = '<img src="' .$data['emthumb']['filepath'] .
                      '" alt="' . check_plain($result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_custom_pager_text_value) .
                      '"/>';
                }
              }
            }

You would need to change the actual fields to the fieldnames used in your content type.

Hope this helps you further, please let me know

Embedded Video Playback

Thanks for the great module!

I have followed the tutorials and got the module working!, I just have a couple of questions. I have the embedded video content displaying in the ddblock. I would like it to be able start to playing the video when clicked as in your example. Instead the play video link takes you to the node page.

The advanced slideshow example shows a video with dolphins content. The slide has a play button that when played it starts to play the video without jumping to the node. How can I configure my setup to do the same?

My next question is regarding multiple advanced slide shows for different nodes. Since the pre-process function is tied to the the view name, does this mean that I have to create new functions for each view I create for each ddblock?

I appreciate your feedback.

Thanks.

I cannot make this work with

I cannot make this work with video embedded

This is the code I'm using:

my video field is: field_slideshow_video

if (isset($result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_slideshow_video_embed)) {
  $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = $result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_slideshow_video_embed;
}

I also tried:

          if (isset($result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_slideshow_video_embed)) {
            $data=unserialize($result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_slideshow_video_embed);
            //print '<pre>';
            //print_r($data);
            //print '</pre>';
            $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = $result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_slideshow_video_embed;
          }

and this one too:

          if (isset($result->node_data_field_slideshow_imagen_field_slideshow_video_embed )) {
            $data=unserialize($result->node_data_field_slideshow_imagen_field_slideshow_video_embed );
            //print '<pre>';
            //print_r($data);
            //print '</pre>';
            $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = $result->node_data_field_slideshow_imagen_field_slideshow_video_embed ;
          }

with the first two I got nothing at all. Blank. with the last one I've got the link to youtube...

Yes, I'm flushing the cache and all of this goes in:

function thinkclear_preprocess_ddblock_cycle_block_content {
 
}

thinkclear is my theme name.

Thanks in advance

Play embedded video in ddblock slideshow

The code

if (isset($result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_youtube_video_embed)) {
              $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = $result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_youtube_video_embed;
            }
assumes your ddblock_embedded_video content type definition has a field "youtube_video_embed" which mine does not even though I imported it from the download file provided. I had to modify the preprocess function to get it to work.

To embed the video and have it play in the ddblock slideshow:
1. Create/edit the ddblock embedded video content and for the "Embedded video url" specify the embedded object code instead of a link.
2. In your template.php file THEMENAME__preprocess_ddblock_cycle_block_content() function.. I added

$slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = ....
// check to see if the embedded video url contains embedded object code instead of a hyperlink
if (strtolower(substr($result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_embedded_video_url_embed,0,8))=='<object ') {
  $obj_code = $result->node_data_field_custom_pager_text_field_embedded_video_url_embed;
  $obj_code = preg_replace('/ width\="\d+"/i', ' width="'.$vars['settings']['image_width'].'"', $obj_code);
  $obj_code = preg_replace('/ height\="\d+"/i', ' height="'.$vars['settings']['image_height'].'"', $obj_code);
  $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = $obj_code;
}

Re: Play embedded video in ddblock slideshow

The reply order in this thread gets a little mixed up but in my answer I do assume you use the field: youtube_video_embed, which we use in our Embedded content example where the code is copied from.

The code we use is the same as you use, except that you add a check if the object code is used to give to the $slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] variable.
Additionaly you change the width and height of the object code with the width and height setting in the configuration page of the ddblock module.

Both very useful additions to the code.

Thanks for posting

Do you have a link to the result?

I found “Drupal” a good

I found “Drupal” a good operating system because it provides complete features to its users. Even I like that this amazing module is added to the “Drupal” for better exchange showing of data but we have best essay service for all of you. So thanks a lot for presenting this great informative article.

Re: I cannot make this work

Please make an issue in the issue queue on drupal.org and attach the template.php file and the result of the drupal_set_message debug lines if you uncomment them in both preprocess functions, so I can help you better.

Thanks, I'll do that.

Thanks, I'll do that.

Re: Embedded Video Playback

Thank you for your interest in the dynamic display block module.

We did not make a tutorial howto do embed the video directly in the slideshow. Will make this tutorial in the future. The difference is in the preprocess functions.

Instead of showing the thumbnail of the youtube video like explained in the existing embedded video tutorial you would use the actual video embedded field itself like:

// add youtube video
if (isset($result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_youtube_video_embed)) {
$slider_items[$key1]['slide_image'] = $result->node_data_field_pager_item_text_field_youtube_video_embed;
}

You can add this after the:
// add slide_image variable
if statement

This way if a video is supplied that will be shown otherwise the image supplied. So you can also combine images and videos like we did in the example, combining embedded flickr images and embedded youtube videos.

Your other question:

There are several options to create multiple slideshows for different content.

1)

  • Create a content type for each type of content.
  • Create a view for each content type.
  • Create a ddblock instance for each view.
  • Create an if statement for each view.

Easy solution for a limited amount of content types (max 3, I would say)

Other solutions depends on what you want to accomplish.
Do your content types have different fields?
Do your content types share fields?
How flexible you need to be?

You can choose to use one view and create more block displays with this view to create the separate blocks to use with the dynamic display block module. e.g one for each content type (overriding filters).

Also a solution can be to use taxonomy terms and views arguments to select different content in the same dynamic display block. (needs a patch to the ddblock module to add views arguments functionality to the dynamic display block module).

I can not give a good answer without knowing the requirements. But there are several options besides option 1. It would be a customized solution for your site.

Hope this answers your questions even if I can not give a direct solution.

Great feedback

Thank you for the prompt feedback. Your comments were right on target and very helpful.

In regards to multiple ddblocks, option one would suffice as long as there are only a couple of blocks. It is a good starting point at this time. For the future, a patch to pass the view arguments would be nice. I will take a look at our application to see if we need to go in that direction.

Great module. I will let you know when we go live in about a month from now.

Thanks,
Sandro.
