this is an Excellent plugin
can you add Please facebook video link checking also?
I’ll take a look and shoot you an email.
hi john Still not getting back to me.
Sent email again.
Hi john Thank you for all what you doing for the plugin I will wait
I’m uploading many Youtube videos, each video will have its own post. I ask you, if a video has a broken link, the post stops appearing on the front-end automatically?
In the case of a broken video link, there’s an option for what to do. You can set the post status to draft, pending, trash, etc. automatically or just report it.
Hi, how do I get this to work with VideoTube theme? It says it has scanned my posts but shows no broken videos, but I know that some of my videos are broken?
Its OK got it working thanks, typo in the meta field
Hi, whats the score with vimeo at the moment? I appear to have a broken vimeo video which the plugin hasn’t picked up.
Has there been any changes with their API / a problem with yours? See: http://bit.ly/2ra9Sh2
Thanks for the note. Yes looks like Vimeo may have changed the response. I have a fix for the next update but send me a PM if you would like a beta version now.
Hi, I didn’t reply because I just thought I’d wait for the official update (I only have a few vimeo embeds, so not hugely important), but is there any sort of estimated timescale on when that will be? Thanks.
Actually a release is schedule for later today.
Dose this Plugin can Find Broken video of (Openload.co Video also
No, but I can look into at customer request.
dear sir if you can add a feature that can find the broken vidoe of openload i will buy it please consider it :: because it has alot of demand
I have a beta for OpenLoad you can test. PM me after purchase.
After php update to latest version, automatic scan not working for me:
Error: could not find ‘video_link_checker_event’ hook, likely another plugin misuse of cron_schedules.
I turned off PHP-FPM and don’t see error, I hope it will work now
Sounds like another plugin stomped the WordPress cron_schedules and removed the ‘video_link_checker_event’ hook.
Disabling then Enabling the VLC should reset the event hook.
I did that and have another error : Could not set wp_schedule_event!
Hmm well the only way I see that WordPress fails wp_schedule_event is if a plugin stomps the events using the ‘cron_schedules’ or ‘schedule_event’ hook to nullify other events. I would disable your plugins to find the culprit, starting with any recently added. If you find it let us know.
No, it’s been working nicely, stopped after php upgrade, VLC and social poster plugin
My advice is the same.
Theme problem. Both plugins are working with default wp theme. Thanks
Okay thanks for the update. Let me know if you need help.
Can this be used as API call? I don’t want it to integrate with word press?
Currently no, but I can look into it. What platform are you using?
I am not using any platform, but I think how you can design this, we just pass the video URL to your API and you send us a JSON response back “VALID” or “NOT VALID” with reason.
I just buy this Product for Openload but there wasn’t a single option for it
OpenLoad was recently added. Just update the plugin to the latest version v2.1
I didn’t get that Update please guide me how to Update it
Sent you an email with details.
Thanks just Update but after pressing scan now page shows a blank page
The script it timing out, meaning your server must be running a hard-set max-execution timeout, which happens interactively when you hit the Scan Now button. Usually VLC can extend the timeout on typical mod_php servers. (If you Enable Automatic Scans, your server should bypass the timeout limit.)
This means your server is terminating VLC before it completes scanning.
To verify, you can check your server logs and see if the server is terminating the script before it completes, or see if your server is running mod_fcgid or mod_fastcgi or a fastcgi process manager like php-fpm. (By default, apache typically uses mod_php which does not have the hard timeout.)
Please check FAQ section in the docs for more, or send a PM with further questions.
I’m not Server Expert if you would help me that would be great!
Hello, I don’t have access to your server, but your host should be able to tell you if you’re running mod_fcgid or similar. I’m guessing yes. The FAQ in the docs details some workarounds if you don’t want to or can’t change your server setup. Send a PM with any further questions.
Now, Because of your plugin my embed src= start hiding after posting content i’m sure there is some bug!
Are you using a premium theme with custom fields? Please send a PM with example details so I can help you.
Yes, I do use Newspaper Premium Theme by TagDiv
I don’t know why but this plugin doesn’t work as it supposed to be so, I would like to get a Refund.
Newpaper uses custom fields for the video instead of standard WordPress content so you have to enter the custom name chosen by the theme author in order for VLC to check them. This is described in the docs. If you had sent a PM like I asked I could have helped you.
No, I’m using normal post editor & embed openload.co videos there
Again, a PM with these details would have been great.
Hi, it appears that the plugin is no longer picking up dead DailyMotion links?
Pretty sure it stopped working with DM prior to the update, still not working with the update.
Also, wondering whether TubiTV is on your radar? Growing really fast (legal site, basically an ad supported version of hulu).
My DM test cases still work. If you think something is not picking up just send me a PM with details so I can test.
TubiTV – I don’t see an API that can be used to check videos.
Hi, tabs 8, 9 and 10 on this link: http://bit.ly/2ymZbLN
A reader comment told me that wasn’t working, respective DM page shows “video removed”. The plugin has had no problem checking videos on tabs like that, not sure why it hasn’t picked those up.
Thanks for the reply RE: tubitv, I may feed back to them regarding the benefits of having some sort of notification system for broken videos, as people embedding is part of their business model. I’ll name check you and perhaps if they decide they would like to offer a plugin for wordpress publishers they can commission you or make it possible for you to include their site on your tool.
I tested those links and they are reported as broken. https://imgur.com/a/Us6SM
I feel certain your theme uses custom data fields for this video data instead of WordPress post content, so you just have to tell VLC what custom names the theme author used to store them so it can check (there’s no way to know in advance what the theme author used). Follow FAQ 7 in the docs or PM me with the theme zip for help.
Yes it uses a custom data field, but youtube and vimeo working and dailymotion no longer.
I have published a video post (Videotube) with the three broken links as tabs 1, 2 and 3, and it did find that the video was broken.
But when I published with a working Dailymotion video as tab 1, and the three broken ones as tabs 2, 3, and 4…. it did not come up as broken after a scan.
So for some reason the scanner is no longer checking all videos on a post such as this: http://bit.ly/2xSPmkB (where 1 is working, and 2, 3 and 4 is broken).
When tab number 1 is broken it is reporting. That is when all links are Dailymotion.
To complicate matters, it IS finding a broken YouTube video which is on tab 7 of another published video.
So this does seem to be a DailyMotion specific problem, which does not affect Vimeo or YouTube.
I don’t know how your site stores/displays these tabs but they don’t appear to be WordPress post content. Can you elaborate? Or PM me login details.
Also, what VideoTube custom fields are you having VLC search?
It searches post type video, custom meta field video_url
Will sort out login details tomorrow, midnight here now.
VLC does appear to still be checking the links on these tabs, because it has found a broken link on tab 7 (a youtube one). Will sort access tomorrow.
Well, VideoTube uses different custom meta fields depending on how you enter the videos. I would try both video_url,video_file
Hey I found the issue with VideoTube. If you can download the latest beta it should take care of it. PM me for details.
I can confirm that the beta has solved the problem on my installation, thanks for the swift resolution.
