  • Hi,

    Thanks for the plugin, However I can't get a copy of izap-elgg-bridge because pluginlotto isn't sending out confirmation emails. I've tried f ew times now with different email/username combos but no dice. Checked junk folders too but they're not there..........

    Could someone activate me manually?




  • Hi, Installed this plugin...

    But after a video upload the video is not going through the qeue...

    Any ideas?

    @Jon (jckm2000) You can login with your google account!

  • Okay maybe I just need to find video settings but where is that? I have Vazco topbar and I see it nowhere so far to add the bridge.

  • Okay, so I've tried everything and nothing seems to work. Here's my problem: after installing this plugin the first time several days ago, I tried to test the ONSERVER video feature. After I tried that the first time, every time I try to visit the video settings admin page, I get this error:

    izap vids error

    I've tried clearing the cache multiple times, as well as removing and reinstalling both the bridge and videos plugin. I've deleted both the bridge and the vids plugin from my server and uploaded fresh copies of each, too, but even that doesn't work. I tried working on my site with the simplcache off thinking it might be that, but still to no avail.

    So ... what to do now?


  • I have completely lost the plot on this. I have the Izap plugin loaded and it shows no version, no info in plugin manager, as if it was loaded with a sub directory. I then go and try to get the API, I thought I get a set of files and an API? To be honest, I haven't a clue what I supposed to be getting, though it does generate an API key for me. Wasn't there a file set also? When I go back to my site I get a white screen and a "save" button. I never see a place to enter any API.

    Maybe you guys could make this a little more confusing that it is!

  • How can I get this izap installed. I copied to the mod folder ,and the tool page on my administors page goes white and does nt load

  •  How can I get a copy of izap-elgg-bridge? Right now it is not possible to register to pluginlotto, website is not sending out confirmation emails,therefore it is not possible to download the file.

  • I am having the same challenge as Igor Nuk.

  • This plugin is what in San Jose California they call "vaporware"!

  • for me it doesn't work with jquery 1.4+, only with jquery 1.3.2

  • izap bridge calls another jQuery Form Plugin, there is one in elgg by default.

    is it possible to disable rating system in settings? a lot of javascript, someone use like/dislike

  • @TahoeBilly, WOW !

  • We are aware of registration emailing issue on pluginlotto.com. http://www.pluginlotto.com is hosted on shared hosting. And we alreaddy crossed our emailing limit.

    I just setup instances on amazon cloud for http://www.pluginlotto.com. http://www.pluginlotto.com is scheduled to be down at IST 15-Feb, between 10:00 PM to 12:00 PM .

    Note: http://api.pluginlotto.com is hosted on separate server. So it will be continue to server.


  • Anyone has problem on Elgg 1.7.6 ?

    I get a blank screen when adding youtube url (tried izap 3.7b, 3.81 and latest)

    url it gets stuck on with blank screen is  /action/izapAddEdit  ???


  • Pluginlotto.com has been moved to amazon cloud. And is sending mails. Let me know if  you face any difficulty.


  • Hi All,

    How much memory is consumed by this application?

    I have installed elgg 1.74 and izap 1.7 to a shared server and my account was suspended due to high CPU usage.

    Top Process     %CPU 24.0       /usr/bin/php /path/mod/izap_videos/izap_convert_video.php izap web
    Top Process     %CPU 23.0       /usr/bin/php /path/mod/izap_videos/izap_convert_video.php izap web
    Top Process     %CPU 22.0       /usr/bin/php /path/mod/izap_videos/izap_convert_video.php izap web

    Basically, JustHost is only allowing 10% CPU usage for each account.

    Also, for thos who have used this, which web host you are using?



  • @izap team: the video upload function has not worked on my site since the recent changes and i have not found a version of the izap plugin that does allow uploads.

    do you have a fix for the video uploads on this latest version?


  • I was excited about using this plugin but being forced to register before being able to download the bridge plugin has put me right off.  I already have more accounts floating around cyber-space than I can keep track of so see no point in creating another for something that really should be included in this directory (it's an elgg plugin and is required to allow this one to function)... :-/

    Is this going to be permanent or will it be added here at some point in the near future?



  • Hi,

    I installed izap_videos. Under "Add new video" it has two tabs 1- "Add url 2- Add embed code.

    The firs option (Add url) is not working properly. I receive the following message when I use this option:

    Your API is invalid or banned. Register new API at http://www.puginlotto.com.

    I already registered and got my key. The second option (Add embed code) works good.

    Also in the list of vidoes (My Videos) the icon for each vidoes is set to default izap icon.

    Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    It's me again. Ironically, now "Add by url" is working without any problem but the other option "Add embed Code" is not working. When I am trying to add a video (like a youtube video) by embed code, it gives me "Please enter the embed code" each time.

    Can someone let me know what's going on!!!

  • When I upload and video, in the riverdashboard play auto when I refresh the riverdashboard!!!

    Any idea?

  • We have Elgg 1.7.7. installed on Centos 5.5

    I have installed izap-bridge ja izap_videos plugins. Everything should be ok. Curl, ffmpeg and so on. Problems started when i tried to enable video uploading. Now when i try to go to izap_video settings error message below comes, so i can not disable video uploading any more. Before that external video linking was ok. Also when i try to select tools and videos same error message comes

    PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function prepare() on a non-object in /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/elgg/mod/izap-elgg-bridge/lib/classes/IzapSqlite.php on line 45

    We have PHP 5.3.5, Apache 2.2.17 and MySQL 5.5.9
    Bridge and izap_videos are last versions. 3.9b_r134 and r115

    pdo-sqlite drivers should be ok. php -m looks like this:

    Core, ctype, curl, date, dom, ereg, exif, ffmpeg, fileinfo, filter, gd, hash, iconv, imagick, json, ldap, libxml, bstring, mysql, pcre, PDO, pdo_sqlite, Phar, posix, Reflection, session, SimpleXML, SPL, SQLite, sqlite3, standard, tokenizer, xml, xmlreader, xmlwriter

    and phpinfo:

    PDO support enabled
    PDO drivers sqlite, sqlite2

    PDO Driver for SQLite 3.x enabled
    SQLite Library 3.7.3

    izap-elgg-bridge is also on the top of all izap plugins

    sqlite version is 3.3.6-5

    Any suggestions what to do?

  • I'm having exactly the same problem as Jukka. When adding manually path to 'new PDO()' it doesn't give me the error, but still uploading doesn't work because it says i'm missing tokens. Help would be great!

  • @izap: i, for one, would appreciate greatly if you would change the main version number of each release of the plugins.. having two 3.9b plugins is a bit confusing!

  • i just installed the latest version of izap_videos and izap_bridge.. i am still seeing: 
    'error fetching data from remote url. either wrong url or video not found'.


    exec and php interpretter entries on the server analysis page are 'fail'... these worked in previous versions.. i am not sure what the cause of the 'fail' message is... 

    (also the izap bridge settings panel in the admin is empty.)



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