View embedded videos from youtube, vimeo and google drive

I had to make a small adjustment that was necessary that whenever the user entered a new url, I would adjust it to the valid format of youtube and vimeo, and in that I thought it takes a little work, so to make the next one easier, I'll leave the code ready here.

CODE

FrontEnd

For the interface you can just use the html iframe

<iframe width="100%" height="460" 
src="{{url}}"
title="Video player" frameborder="0"
allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"
allowfullscreen></iframe>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

πŸ’‘ NOTE: In the src property is where we apply our formatted URL

BackEnd

For the back end you just need a simple method.

public function formatUrl($url)
{
        $urlParse = parse_url($url);
        // Extract id from youtube url
        if (strpos($urlParse["host"], 'youtube') !== false) {
            if (isset($urlParse["query"])) {
                parse_str($urlParse["query"], $query);
                return "https://www.youtube.com/embed/" . $query["v"];
            }
            $id = explode("/", $urlParse["path"]);
            return "https://www.youtube.com/embed/" . end($id);
        }
        // Extract id from vimeo url
        if (strpos($urlParse["host"], 'vimeo') !== false) {
            $urlParse = explode("/", $urlParse["path"]);
            return "https://player.vimeo.com/video/" . $urlParse[1];
        }
        // Extract id from google drive url
        if (strpos($urlParse["host"], 'drive.google') !== false) {
            $urlParse = explode("/", $urlParse["path"]);
            $urlParse = array_values(array_filter($urlParse));
            return "https://drive.google.com/file/d/" . $urlParse[2] . "/preview";
        }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's it
