ActsAsVideoFu

A Rails plugin that easily allows you to show video streams on your site.
Currently, YouTube and Vimeo streams are supported.

Note that #video_url is expected to be in these formats:

YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEILFf2XSrM 
Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/726135

Installation

  1. Install the gem
    sudo gem install mdarby-acts_as_video_fu
  1. Require the gem in your config/environment.rb file
    config.gem ‘mdarby-acts_as_video_fu’, :lib => ‘acts_as_video_fu’

Example

  1. Generate a resource that includes the title:string and video_url:string attributes
    ./script/generate scaffold Video title:string video_url:string
  1. Add ‘acts_as_video_fu’ to your model

    class Video < ActiveRecord::Base
    acts_as_video_fu
    end
  1. Show the video’s thumbnail in any view you might like
    <%= image_tag thumbnail_url(video) %>
  1. Add the ‘display_video’ helper to show the full-sized video in any view you might like
    <%= display_video(@video) %>
