Posted by: Ivan Stamenov Feb 29 2012, 01:10 PM

New content plugin for joomla for video background in content items is released - It will allow YouTube videos to be set as page background on selected content items pages in Joomla!

This plugin is perfect way to Increase YouTube Video Views and Increase Ranking of your video in Youtube. Tip: buy our plugin for joomla and place video as background on some well ranked page with more visits. Every time when user open page, video will be loaded and this will be counted in YouTube.

Your page will look great and this will Increase your YouTube Views. This way is good for branding and promotions also.

Content plugin for joomla parameters:
- Auto mode: if enabled, the default video settings will be used for every content article which does not contain custom plgtubular tag, thus every article will be displayed with video background; if disabled, only articles which contain custom plgtubular tag will be displayed with video background;
- Default video ID: the YouTube video ID of the default video (11 chars);
- Default video width: the default video's width in pixels;
- Default ratio: the default video's ratio, either 3/4 or 16/9;
- Default wrapper ID: the default HTML ID of the wrapper element, its contents will remain visible;
- Default z-index: the default z-index of the video container;
- Video controls: whether to enable the video controls: start/pause/stop/mute;
- Controls' default position: if no {vc} tag is found within the article, the video controls will be displayed on this position, if enabled.

The plgtubular tag has the following format (including the curly brackets):

{plgtubular [1],[2],[3],[4],[5]}

[1]: YouTube video ID, 11 chars
[2]: The video's width, in pixels
[3]: The video's ratio, either 4/3 or 16/9
[4]: The ID of the HTML element, holding the content area
[5]: The z-index of the video container

For example:

{plgtubular JSWL_7u_G7c,1080,4/3,all,1}

You can play with options and css and you can configure on other pages to look different. Just see our examples.


Example One: (fullscreen, without video controls)

Code for this content item is:
{plgtubular UfhZtIsHvFo,1080,16/9,all,9999999}

Example two: (only body and right column, with video controls)

I bought the extension, I have installed on Jooma joomla 1.5.25 and 2.5.4

But in both, when going out the contents. Reports the following error:

Joomla 1.5.25: "Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_stripos () in / home/moises/public_html/probandoJoomla15/plugins/content/tubular.php on line 48"

Joomla 2.5.5: "Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_stripos () in / home/moises/public_html/probandojoomla25/plugins/content/tubular/tubular.php on line 48"

The same mistake. ¿Aque properly? how I can solve this problem.
Thank you.

Sorry for my English, but is poor.

php function not work, is not installed on your server. You can try to edit plugin, change mb_stripos to stripos or better edit your server configuration.
