  • Hi,

    Have set 200MB for all parameters for htaccess, I get problems with large files still.

    I suspect php is timing out.

    Can suggestions?



  • Hello, i love this Plugin, but there some problems with this version! If i have enabled your Plugin, nobody can´t set images or other formattings in blogs and co...

    Then, Links in Messages are not clickable. I tested this now a longe time, only if i activate izap_videos, there comes this Problems :(

    I use elgg v1.6.1...



  • This seems to create its own Tag Cloud. Where is it getting the data from and are you using another plugin to get this Tag Cloud to work ?

    Other than that, it works OK fo rme on elgg v1.6.1

  • @Sim2k: Automatic tag generation is only in case of YouTube, Vimeo, Veoh. It is also getting description from these sites.

  • i found some problem in default/input/text. some plugins use and id of each element for some operations but now izap_video strips id attribute out of each text field.this cause some problem occur.



    <input type="text" <?php if ($vars['disabled']) echo ' disabled="yes" '; ?> <?php echo $vars['js']; ?> name="<?php echo $vars['internalname']; ?>" value="<?php echo htmlentities($vars['value'], null, 'UTF-8'); ?>" class="<?php echo $class ?>" />


    I think it must be:

    <input type="text" <?php if ($vars['disabled']) echo ' disabled="yes" '; ?> <?php echo $vars['js']; ?> name="<?php echo $vars['internalname']; ?>" <?php if (isset($vars['internalid'])) echo "id=\"{$vars['internalid']}\""; ?> value="<?php echo htmlentities($vars['value'], null, 'UTF-8'); ?>" class="<?php echo $class ?>" />

  • Sorry all, am a newbie to elgg and all, I uploaded and installed the video plugin, youtube videos work fine but when I try to upload a video, it takes me back to the dashboard and reports that the form is missing_token or_ts field.
    how do i reslove this pls.

  • @ Agwalogu Akobundu BobNorman -  This might be because you are uploading a large video.

    You might be uploading a large video, to do so you have to increase the max_upload_size in the .htaccess

  • is there a way to search popular sites (YouTube...) directly from the plugin?  Much like the Videolist plugin?  Your plugin works great on my install and I'd like to add that functionality.

  • im getting this error when i click the "enter URL option" any solution will be much appreciated :D thanks



    2009-12-07 04:42:51 (UTC): "PHP was not built with --with-curl, rebuild PHP to use the curl class." in file C:\xampplite\htdocs\elgg\mod\izap_videos\classes\class.curl.php (line 119)

  • @kaninglamig:
    We have relased a new version of the plugin with so many improvements. and that will give you better info about your environment. Click here to download. BTW, this error is becuase your server is not supporting "CURL". You need to compile CURL with php. And than it would work. Even in the new version, you will get this problem. But will be informed in a better way from server analysis tool.


  • HI iZAP,


    thanks for the response i appreciate it, could you tell me how to compile the CURL? im a newbie when it comes to PHP so my apology.


    Thanks again...

  • Also where can i find/install or modify PHP interpreter? thanks again.... :D

  • @kaninglaming:
    Well your host could answer that better. On linux it expected to be in /usr/bin/php or /usr/local/php/bin/php.

    And on window like "XAMPP", "WAMP", that could be loated under the installation directory of these servers.
    I hope that could help you.


We are leading elgg providers. We have implemented complex combination of applications like "elgg + elasticsearch + cloud infrastructure + comet server for active pages"
