Playing Videos In Activity Feed Tip

I was asked if I could post this tip again so here is the code needed. The tip allows your videos to be played in the activity feed, so when a user clicks on the video it is replaced by the video itself. When a user clicks on the link of the video etc they will still go to the main video page.

You can see an example here : https://jr-images.ning.com/

First we need to add some custom code which goes in your Social Site Manager > Custom Code > End Of Page

 

<script>
//If videos are iframed then css makes them responsive
x$(document).ready(function() {
if (x$('.videoDetailPage-video iframe').length > 0) {
x$('.videoDetailPage-video').addClass('iframed');
}
});
</script>

<script>
x$(document).ready(function(){
var activityVideoMedia = '.feedEvent-createVideoRollup .activityFeed-content a.media-img,.feedEvent-createVideoLike .activityFeed-content a.activityFeed-image,.feedEvent-createVideoComment .activityFeed-content a.media-img, .feedEvent-createVideoRollup .activityFeed-content a.activityFeed-image,.feedEvent-featureVideo .activityFeed-content a.media-img';
var activityVideoMedia = '.feedEvent-createVideoRollup .activityFeed-content a.media-img,.feedEvent-createVideoLike .activityFeed-content a.activityFeed-image,.feedEvent-createVideoComment .activityFeed-content a.media-img, .feedEvent-createVideoRollup .activityFeed-content a.activityFeed-image,.feedEvent-featureVideo .activityFeed-content a.media-img';
x$('body').on('click', activityVideoMedia, function(e){
e.preventDefault();
var titleURL = x$(this).attr('href');
x$('.activityShowMe-container').remove();
x$('.feedEvent-createVideoLike .activityFeed-content a.activityFeed-image').addClass("media-img");
x$('.activityFeed-content').removeClass('videoActiveContent');
x$('.activityFeed-videos, .eventPage-image-wrapper').removeClass("ActivityvideoActive");
x$(document.body).css({ 'cursor': 'wait'});
x$(activityVideoMedia).slideDown(500);
x$(this).parent().addClass("ActivityvideoActive");
x$('.ActivityvideoActive').closest('.activityFeed-content').addClass('videoActiveContent');
x$(this).parent().append('<div class="activityShowMe-container"><div class="activityShowMe-header"><a class="activityShowMe-closer" title="Close the Video">X</a></div><div class="activityShowMe">Video Loading...</div><div class="activityShowMe-page"><a class="activityShowMe-comment">Comments</a><a class="myTitleLink" title="View In Main Video Page">View In Main Video Page..</a></div></div>');
x$('a.myTitleLink, a.activityShowMe-comment').attr("href", titleURL).appendTo('.activityShowMe-page');
x$('a.myTitleLink, a.activityShowMe-closer, a.activityShowMe-comment').hide();
x$(".activityShowMe").load(x$(this).attr("href") + " .videoDetailPage-video", function() {
if (x$('.videoDetailPage-video iframe').length > 0) {
x$('.videoDetailPage-video').addClass('iframed');
}
x$(".activityShowMe").hide().fadeIn();
x$(document.body).css({ 'cursor': 'default'});
x$('a.myTitleLink, a.activityShowMe-closer, a.activityShowMe-comment').fadeIn();
});
x$('.videoDetailPage-viewVideo').remove();
x$(this).slideUp();

x$('a.activityShowMe-closer').click(function(){
x$('.activityShowMe-container').slideUp("slow", function(){
x$('.activityShowMe-container').remove();
x$(activityVideoMedia).slideDown(500);
x$('.activityFeed-videos, .eventPage-image-wrapper').removeClass("ActivityvideoActive");
x$('.activityFeed-content').removeClass('videoActiveContent');

});
});
});
});
</script>

 

NEXT we add some css and this goes in your Design Studio Custom CSS

 

/* Make video Responsive */
.videoDetailPage-video.iframed{
margin-bottom: 5px;
width: 100%;
height: 0;
padding-bottom: 56.25%;
position: relative;
}
.videoDetailPage-video.iframed iframe{
max-width: 100%;
height: 100%;
width:100%;
position: absolute;
}

.activityShowMe-container{clear:both; max-width:1280px; margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:20px;width:100% }
.activityShowMe-header{ width:100%;clear:both;height:40px }
a.activityShowMe-closer{
padding: 4px 8px;
border-radius: 70px;
background-color:white;
color: #cc7474;
cursor: pointer;
font-weight:bold;
float:left;
clear:both;
border: solid 1px darkgray;
}
a.activityShowMe-closer:hover{ background-color:royalblue;text-decoration: none;color:white;font-weight:bold }
.activityShowMe-page a{ display:inline-block; cursor:pointer }
.activityShowMe-page{ margin-top:8px; text-align:right; width:100%;clear:both }
.activityShowMe-page a{ font-size:0.9em }
.activityShowMe .sheet{ padding:10px 0px 0px 0px!important }
a.activityShowMe-comment{ float:left }
.activityShowMe .site-body{ background-color:transparent }

@media only screen and (min-width:300px){
.activityShowMe { font-size:1.5em; }
}
.videos-only .activityFeed-videos { margin-bottom:20px; }
@media only screen and (min-width:771px){
.videos-only .activityFeed-videos:not(:only-child) { margin-bottom:20px;margin-right:5px; max-width:24%; display:inline-block }
}
.ActivityvideoActive{ width:100%!important; max-width:100%!important;clear:both }
.activityFeed-content.videoActiveContent{ max-width:100%!important}

.feedEvent-createVideoRollup .activityFeed-content {
max-width: 100%;
/*Was 548px */
}
.feedEvent-createVideoComment .activityFeed-detailContent{
margin-top:10px;
}

 

Enjoy, Bizz :-)
