Simple simple simple

Googtube allows users to embed Youtube, Vimeo and Google Videos in a simple way without tags. When users post a url to videos the link is automatically converted to a video witch is actually embed code.


-Version 7.x-2 is online (new features and dev here)
-Version 6 is online (no more in development)
-Versions before that are unsupported

There are now four methods to show video (since version 7.x-2.0 or 6.x-2.0):
-Colorbox (needs Colorbox module to be installed)
-Floatbox (needs Floatbox module to be installed)


  1. Copy the googtube folder to the Drupal sites/all/modules/ directory.
  2. Go to 'administer > modules', and enable the googtube.module
  3. Go to 'administer > configuration > input formats' and enable the filter in the desired input formats. (At least "Filtered HTML")
  4. Rearrange the filters on the input format's 'rearrange' tab to
    resolve conflicts with other filters. After the HTML filter and before the URL Filter is probably best.
  5. (Optional) Change the options in the filter tab if needed (version X.x-2.0 and more)

For example, my "Filtered HTML" is rearrange like this

HTML filter
googtube filter
Line break converter
URL filter
HTML corrector

If you don't do this, you'll end up with double videos.

Coders or new features

I don't code much these days (I used to, I was in the IT for 15 years!)
If you want a new feature:

  1. Talk to me first to see if this feature is in the scope of googtube (or create a feature request with the subject)
  2. Code it against the latest DEV release and create a patch.
  3. I'll test it and if it's working great, it will be commited.

This does take some time before I check it out, so be patient. Thanks.
