Need Gigya Help for Video

  1. I am having trouble trying to convert this video embed code to a gigya code for WP.com. Here's the embed code given:

    <iframe src='http://www.nowness.com/media/embedvideo?itemid=1640&issueid=1691' width='500px' height='315px' frameborder='0'></iframe><p>Spike Jonze: Mourir Auprès de Toi on Nowness.com.</p>

    From this site (Nowness):

    Thanks very much for any help!

    The gigya shortcode is for flash embeds only, not iframes.

  3. Hi panaghiotisadam,

    True, but you've noted elsewhere that there might be exceptions:

    "we can’t turn iframes into working shortcodes! I simply discovered that in this particular case the URL included in the iframe code can reveal a flash code. Doesn’t apply to any iframe."

    Found at bottom of:

    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/04/29/inserting-kickstarter-videos/

    And I've been able to make this same video embeddable from another site (not Nowness) using this code:

    [gigya embed src='http://www.suchablog.com/wp-content/uploads/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/player/player.swf' height='405' width='720' bgcolor='0x000000' allowscriptaccess='always' allowfullscreen='true' flashvars="&backcolor=0x000000&controlbar=over&file=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.suchablog.com%2Fvideos%2Fmourir-aupres-de-toi.mp4&frontcolor=0xffffff&image=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.suchablog.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2011%2F10%2Fmourir-aupres-de-toi-vid.jpg&lightcolor=0x000000&mediaid=24063&plugins=sharing-1%2Cviral-2&screencolor=0x000000&sharing.height=405&sharing.visible=true&sharing.width=720&sharing.x=0&sharing.y=0&skin=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.suchablog.com%2Fwp-content%2Fplugins%2Fjw-player-plugin-for-wordpress%2Fskins%2Fsucha-player.zip&viral.allowdock=true&viral.allowmenu=false&viral.bgcolor=0x000000&viral.fgcolor=0xffffff&viral.functions=embed&viral.matchplayercolors=false&viral.multidock=true&viral.oncomplete=true&viral.onpause=false"]

    But I'd really somehow rather be able to embed from Nowness.com, because the quaity is so much better.

    Thanks for any help.

  4. Still hoping someone can help me with this gigya problem!

    Thanks much.

    Sorry disembedded, there can be no help with "this gigya problem", because it's not a gigya problem!

  6. Okay, well thanks for taking a look at it.

    Best wishes to you.

    You're welcome and sorry I can't help. Before I posted my initial reply I did try what I had done with the K videos, just in case, but no luck: sourcecode is javascript.

  8. Yeah, I had tried it also, with no luck. But I really do appreciate your trying. Thanks again!

  9. how do you convert the embed code into gigya code?

    Depends on the code. General (difficult) instructions in this post:

    Some videos are converted as shown in this post:

    Better paste here (between backticks) the code you're interested in so we can show you.
