    Activity plus reloaded version 1.0.6

    If a user pastes more than one video URL into the comments
    text box , All of the videos will embed and post.

    If 20 video URL’s are pasted , 20 embeded videos will appear
    on on post ! !

    activity plus will do this with the video upload option
    disabled in settings.

    Is activity plus suppost to work like that ?

    I need a small tweek on the code to restrict video to
    one embed per post, and to be able to turn off video
    embeds

    Thanks for your help !

    Hi,
    Thank you for using the plugin.

    The embedding of video from urls(such as youtube etc) are handled by BuddyPress. Even if you disable activity plus, users will still be able to add video embeds in BuddyPress activity post/comment.

    This is not handled by activity plus(we do add a UI for backward compatibility but that is not needed).

    Regards

    Hi Brajesh

    Wow ! thanks for the quick response, I should have checked
    back sooner.

    I found this on buddydev.com — BuddyPress Tutorials

    —-Link
    https://buddydev.com/disabling-oembed-support-buddypress-activity/

    —-Code for wp ( theme functions )

    add_filter( ‘bp_use_oembed_in_activity’, ‘__return_false’ );

    This stopped buddypress from embedding video with URL in activity post
    / comment., — now video embed functions only when activity plus is used .
    Great ! !

    Could you help with one more thing ? video coming from one
    website is causing problems.
    How can I tweek activity plus so that it will deny / stop a video embed
    coming from a specific domain.com .
    In other words — youtube.com , yes / vimeo.com , yes /
    dailymotion.com , yes / ——- crazy.com , NO !

    Thanks for your help !

    Hi,
    Thank you for the reply.
    I am glad the original issue is resolved.

    WordPress does not support crazy.com out of the box.

    You can remove a service by using the function ‘wp_oembed_remove_provider’ but you will need to know the format used inoembed for the same.

    Hi,
    Thank you for the reply.

    I investigated ,went into wp includes folder

    looked at file– class-oembed.php

    there is a block of code with all providers , each one can
    be marked, true or false

    the domain giving me problems isn’t in there, some how its working.

    do you know of a buddypress or wp plug that will —
    add or remove providers

    is there theme functions or bp-custom.php snip of code that will
    add provider or remove provider?

    Thanks

    Hi webfriend,
    Is there any chance that the site being embed is also a WordPress site?

    Hi
    Brajesh

    Unknown, used my browsers web developer, all content
    paths have been changed by a plug. It is likely wp . they look
    like mine

    yesterday I discoverd that this code in theme functions
    add_filter( ‘bp_use_oembed_in_activity’, ‘__return_false’ );

    doesn’t stop embeds in activity commenting, 20 videos or
    more will embed on one comment

    it doesn’t work at all in bp-custom.php

    What this situation needs for all people using
    buddypress, is some code to restrict buddypress
    to -one- embed per post or comment

    and a way to block a domain from embeding.

    That would be awesome

    Thanks webfriend

    Thank you for sharing the details.
    The replies use different filter than activity post. I will look into it in the day and share.
    I may not be able to assist you with domain black listing as there is not a simple filter for that. It is doable but is beyond the time we provide assistance here.

    Hi,
    You may use the following code to disable the oembed in activity post and comments.

    
    add_filter( 'bp_use_oembed_in_activity', '__return_false' );
    add_filter( 'bp_use_embed_in_activity_replies', '__return_false' );

    Hi
    Brajesh

    Thanks, both of these are working in — bp-custom.php

    add_filter( ‘bp_use_oembed_in_activity’, ‘__return_false’ );

    add_filter( ‘bp_use_embed_in_activity_replies’, ‘__return_false’ );

    Embeds are now cut off of buddypress except when using
    —- activity plus reloaded—- to post . which limits embeds to
    one per post.

    Mabey somebody at stackoverflow.com will have some code
    to filter or blacklist domains / providers from buddypress embeds.

    if it works I will come back to post it here.

    Thanks
    webfriend
