iZAP-Videos, Full featured videos plugin v3.9b

Release Notes

izap_videos 3.9b revision 134:

  • Fixes in API. Now you can register API at pluginlotto.com for localhost / user.
  • Hidden edit form fixed.
  • Enhanced API with dedicated support of Youtube, Vimeo, Veoh, Metacafe, Blip, CollegeHumor, 5min.
  • Improved sqlite drivers for video queue management.
  • Lighter code.
  • Nice rating video widget.


  • izap-elgg-bridge, Get your copy from http://www.pluginlotto.com.
  • Install latest izap-elgg-bridge and place it on the top of all plugins provided by iZAP. This has some common libraries we need in our different plugins. It's let us maintain DRY programming practices.

Supporting elgg platforms:

  • elgg 1.6
  • elgg 1.7
  • Tried installing the latest to see if it cures my problem but it killed the plugin manager and I got the WSOD. Went back to 3.81b and still the plugin manager is at WSOD state - not very amused...

  • Moved the plugin above the theme before enabling it cured this...

  • Hi

    I use izap_video 3.81b and izap_bridge 1.2.

    Sometimes i get Fatal error: Exception thrown without a stack frame inUnknown on line 0

    in my customized index and a white dashboard.  And sometimes it works fine. What can i do to solve this? 


  • Ok, I've installed the latest and greatest. I've embeded a youtube video for testing and it doesn't work. It won't play or even open the link to youtube.

  • When I post a video to a Group, it says that the Group Name has posted it. Should it not say that I (the user) posted it? Thus we would never know who posted any video to a group. Is this a bug? Do I have something set up improperly? Or is this the way a post is intended to display?

  • Hi, I User i_zap_video_3.9b_r134 and the latest izap_bridge. "Server analysis" says everything ist fine. I can load up an url and video files. I get the thumbnails of the video but the conversion fails. I get the error  Unsupported video formate

  • Re the http://youtu.be link not working the cure for this is to change it in the url to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

  • Nice Module.

    But the dependency with your servers (API ) is a "no go".

  • I'm using 1.7.1 elgg with 3.7b izap without api with no problems,don't think I will plan on upgrading...

  • when will izap videos for elgg 1.8?

  • This plugin screwed up my whole database! (elgg 1.78)

    After uploading izap_vdeos and izap_bridge i enabled both plugins. Then i got a blank screen.

    Disabling was not possible due the blank screen that and so i removed the two izap plugin folders from the /mod/ directory. But there was no change: still a blank screen.

    Then hours of testing:
    - disabled the both cache settings (simplecache + views cache) directly in the database
    - searching for some invalid entities
    - searching for last db changes in hope to fix them
    - finally removing ALL plugins from the /mod/ folder => first success: main system is running.
    - and then it becomes mystic: copied ONE plugin (no matter wich plugin) => blank screen again

    I don't know why there was always a blank screen, when any plugin was copied to the /mod/ folder. But at this point i decided, that my database was screwed up by izap and it is not a problem of the other plugins.

    Finally i had to set up a new database :( with the old scripts and so my site was running again :) but completely empty :((

    Sorry, but after this experience i think i'll never test izap again...

  • Please everyone check this thread before using this plugin on production site:-


    I lost a lots of trafic after saying good bye to this plugin, I was using this from last year. For those who are on VPS and on shared hosting never use this plugin it will slow down your site. I am on dedicated server and still faced same problem when I remove thi server the I got a boost in performance.

    I don't know where is this team busy I already post on plugin lotto and nobody trying to help me. Now I am using embedly plugin whcih is very fast try that.

  • mysite.com/pg/videos/all only work if login off but if I login with any account this is why I get:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@mysite.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


    I try to find more info about and look like some user try to upload a video and cause this error.

    How can I fix this now?


    Thanks for you help
