The agileVideos module includes a new feature that allows you to automatically protect files within a shared folder from external access. If the option is enabled, only registered users (with an account) can see / access the files.
Note: The agileVideos module does not support advanced permission settings at the file level. It currently distinguishes only registered users and guests. So it can only be used for "simple" file protection.
Note: This protection function uses the standard htaccess protection with the help of a backend script and can therefore only be used on Apache web servers. Microsoft server installations are currently not supported.
You can feed an instance of the "agileVideos Module" with an unlimited number of sources and define for each of these sources whether it should be publicly accessible or not.
But remember: the protection used via htaccess is also applied to subfolders!
The improved version of the Prettyfier included for free.
The Prettyfier is a code component that allows to modify labels / texts by own rules. The handling is very simple - via the backend module rules can be defined which are applied one after the other. With our Prettyfier you can define rules so that the web safe filename is not listed in the module. So from "my_ugly_but_safe_Filename.jpg" can be displayed as label: my ugly but safe Filename. And Prettyfier can do even more. By freely defining rules, even the complete name can be customized and parts of it can be deleted. The options are incomparable.
All videos will play in a lightbox, whether they are stored locally or from an external source. Note on external sources: No content is loaded from Youtube or other servers until the user actively clicks on the video thumbnail to play the video.

The module has an integrated privacy layer with visitor information and a confirmation button that can be displayed optionally. In addition, videos (also from external sources) are only loaded when they are clicked. Furthermore, external videos are marked with a TAG, so your visitors know BEFORE clicking on a video that it is an externally hosted video.
Custom Video Posters
Use your own video posters in the overview - just load a jpg or png file with the same filename into the same folder as the video. For external sources you can choose a poster in the module settings.
Local & Remote Sources Support
The local videos are read automatically based on the settings you made. Remote videos from Youtube / Vimeo or via direct link can be added separately. However, they will be displayed intermixed with the local videos (if desired).
Below you will find the view as a grid, the columns count for Phones, Tablets, and Desktops can be defined in the module settings.
In addition, you can use your own CSS classes to further style the grid and the elements in addition to the already diverse configuration options. In the example above, the UIkit CSS classes
uk-flex-center were added to center the grid.
The example below shows the module with active Privacy Notice (the text can be freely selected) and the display variant in the grid grouped by source.
