this is an Excellent plugin can you add Please facebook video link checking also?

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?

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.

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

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).

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.

why does not it detect links from openload?

Hello, I’ve already replied to your PM.

Have you selected OpenLoad in the Scan Options?

If yes, are you using a theme that uses custom fields for the OpenLoad links?

Why does not the plugin display a report showing information about such errors? ‘Unable to open tmp file

Scan report tmp files were empty. Contact Support. ‘

This can happen when the server’s tmp location is full. Please send me a PM for a workaround.

I sent you PM :)

hi , does this work with themes who use openload with custom fields ? and does your plugins can also check google video ?

Yes. Numerous options to support custom post types, post statuses, embedded urls, video links, custom meta fields, email reports, and more. No. Which API do you mean by google video? Send a PM with examples and I’ll take a look.
