I'm trying to give a client the ability to add Vimeo videos in their entries in conjunction with Content Elements. There seems to be only one video fieldtype compatable with CE - Embed video by krea but that only allows youtube uploads. Anyone else got this working or knows a workaround?

One alternative would be to create a text fieldtype in which the client could simply enter the video ID, which you would then parse into the Vimeo embed code within the template. It's not perfect, but it's a potential solution. You might simply have to do an element name lookup to distinguish it from any other textfield options you have provided as an element.

  • Thanks Jean. I've been down that route but it won't work for this client. I'll have to move the video code out of content elements for the moment. Commented May 8, 2014 at 7:57
  • It would be AWESOME if Channel Videos became a Content Elements compatible fieldtype. Commented May 8, 2014 at 11:42
  • Ive opted for this. It works great and users understand how to copy and paste the embed code (iframe). Very easy to implement.

Currently there is no compatible add-on. Developer tells me there is something in the pipeline.
