Quick start

  1. Install django-embed-video:

    pip install django-embed-video
    

    or from sources

    pip install git+https://github.com/jazzband/django-embed-video
    
  2. Add embed_video to INSTALLED_APPS in your Django settings.

  3. If you want to detect HTTP/S in template tags, you have to set request context processor in settings.TEMPLATES:

TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        # ...
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [
                # ...
                'django.template.context_processors.request',
            ],
        },
    },
]
  1. Usage of template tags:
{% load embed_video_tags %}

The video tag:
{% video item.video as my_video %}
  URL: {{ my_video.url }}
  Thumbnail: {{ my_video.thumbnail }}
  Backend: {{ my_video.backend }}

  {% video my_video "large" %}
{% endvideo %}

Or embed shortcut:
{% video my_video '800x600' %}
  1. Usage of model fields
from django.db import models
from embed_video.fields import EmbedVideoField

class Item(models.Model):
    video = EmbedVideoField()  # same like models.URLField()
