WP YouTube Lyte

説明

WP YouTube Lyte は、レスポンシブな「Lyte YouTube 埋め込み」を挿入することで、動画を「遅延読み込み」します。一見普通の YouTube の埋め込みに見えますがクリックされた時だけ、「重い」YouTube プレーヤーを呼び出すことで、ダウンロードサイズと描画時間を大きく減少させます。複数の YouTube 動画が同じページにあればページの反応は飛躍的に向上します。またサムネイルを自分のサーバーにキャッシュすることで、パフォーマンスとプライバシーを共に向上させます。Lyte YouTube 埋め込みは、YouTube のサーバーへのリクエストを行わないため、おそらく (私は弁護士ではないですが) GDPR コンプライアンス (一般データ保護規則) の上でより良いでしょう。

本プラグインは、WordPress コアの oEmbed (埋め込み) を引き継いで通常の YouTube のリンクを拾います。動画や再生リストへの YouTube リンクを http(s) の代わりに httpv として追加したり、Lyte ウィジット をサイドバーに追加すると、WP YouTube Lyte はそのリンクをパフォーマンスに最適化したコードで置き換えます。例:

  • httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SQkWbRublY (通常の動画埋め込み)
  • httpv://youtu.be/_SQkWbRublY (YouTube の短縮 URL での動画埋め込み)
  • httpa://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SQkWbRublY (音声のみの埋め込み)
  • httpv://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA486E741B25F8E00 (再生リストの埋め込み)
  • httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SQkWbRublY#stepSize=-1 (動画プレーヤー、標準より一回り小さい)
  • httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SQkWbRublY?start=20&showinfo=0 (動画プレーヤー、20秒から開始し、タイトル非表示)

またはショートコードも使えます:
[lyte id=’_SQkWbRublY’ /]
[lyte id=’_SQkWbRublY’ audio=’true’ /]
[lyte id=’A486E741B25F8E00′ playlist=’true’ /]

WP YouTube Lyte は、パフォーマンスの改善を主な目標として開発されてきましたが、一方でアクセシビリティを保ちつつブラウザーの互換性 (iPad を含む) も最大限にテストされています。バージョン 1.2.0 以降、Lyte 埋め込み はフルレスポンシブで、videoObject のマイクロデータも自動で埋め込みます。本プラグインは完全に多言語化されています。

  3. 投稿内でこのように YouTube 動画をリンクしてください: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SQkWbRublY

FAQ

WP YouTube Lyte はなぜ YouTube の API にアクセスするのか ? API とは ?

API はソフトウェア同士で互いに情報を交換する方法です。WP YouTube Lyte が YouTube に通信して、サムネイル (画像)、タイトル、説明を要求します。サムネイルとタイトルはウェブサイト上に表示され、一方、説明は検索エンジンへの最適化のため HTML 内に記述されます(下記を参照)。

了解、では API キーを取得するには ?

  1. Google Developer Console にアクセスし、あなたの Google アカウントでログインでします。(この情報は古くなっており過去の手順です)

  2. 「プロジェクト作成」をクリック:

    • プロジェクト名を入力
    • プロジェクト ID を入力
    • 「作成」をクリック
  3. 次のページで (次のページがなければ作成したプロジェクト名をクリック):

    • YouTube Data API v3 までスクロールし、クリック
    • 上部の「有効にする」をクリックし API を有効化
    • 他の API の無効化はご自由に
  4. 左のサイドバー内で:

    • 「認証情報」をクリック
    • 上部の「認証情報を作成」をクリック
    • 「API キー」をクリック
    • できる限り制限は最小にしてください。制限の設定によって、よく問題が起こります。
    • 「作成」をクリック
  5. 作成された API キーを WP YouTube Lyte の設定ページにコピーします。

API キーなしでも WP YouTube Lyte は動作しますか ?

はい。一部例外があります: WP YouTube Lyte は、Lyte プレーヤーは動作を続行しますが、タイトルとマイクロデータ (説明や再生時間など) なし、再生リスト用のサムネイルなしで描画されます。

API は不要なので API キー用の通知を止めたい

API キー入力欄に none と入力します。これで Lyte は口うるさくしません。

WP YouTube Lyte はサイト訪問者のプライバシーを保護しますか ?

最も重大な プラグインとは違い、WP YouTube Lyte の中には第三者が作成した追跡用コードはありませんが、あなたのサーバーにサムネイルをキャッシュするという設定を有効にしなければ、まだ YouTube へは訪問者による YouTube へのリクエストがあります。サーバーにキャッシュしていれば、動画が再生されるまで、訪問者からの YouTube へのリクエストは送信されません。

ページビルダーを使っているけど、追加したYouTube 動画の Lyte は有効ではないようだ

標準では Lyte は WordPress のコンテンツフィルターを使用します。ページビルダーは、コンテンツにこのフィルターを適用しないので Lyte は呼ばれません。対応させるには、Lyte ウィジットの追加か、ページビルダー Text-block (未訳) 内にショートコードで Lyte 動画を追加します。

Can I use WP YouTube Lyte for a custom field?

Just pass the httpv url of such a field to lyte_preparse like this:
if(function_exists(‘lyte_preparse’)) { echo lyte_preparse($video); }
and you’re good to go!

Infinite Scroll と併用できますか ?

バージョン1.1.0以降で行えます。Infinite Scroll の設定で、「Javascript to be called after the next posts are fetched」の入力欄に ly.te() を追加するだけです。

WP YouTube Lyte は マイクロデータをどうやってサポートしているの ?

  • WP YouTube Lyte がページに追加可能な、videoObject 用の具体的なマクロデータの仕様があり、Google は、検索結果の隣に動画のサムネイルを表示するのに使用します。
  • これは設定から無効化することもできます
  • 音声のみの埋め込み、再生リスト、ウィジットにはマイクロデータは追加されません
  • Google は、いつもサムネイルを表示するのではありません。おそらく、これはそのページの残り部分の動画の関連性によります。

How does captions-support get added to the microdata?

In January 2014 Benetech, a U.S. nonprofit that develops and uses technology to create positive social change, offered a patch that adds the accessibilityFeature property to the microdata for videos that have captions. If you have microdata enabled, WP YouTube Lyte will automatically try to check (in a seperate, asynchronous call via a proxy-webservice, as YouTube only offers captions in their API v3 which requires authentication) if captions are available and if so, adds the accessibilityFeature property with value captions to the microdata. This can be disabled by either disabling microdata or, if you want microdata but not the accessibilityFeature-property by using the “lyte_docaptions”-filter to set captions to false (example-code is in lyte_helper.php_example).

レスポンシブな LYTE の埋め込み

  • 投稿やページ中の動画の横幅は、あなたのブログ記事/ページが表示されているコンテナー (div) の横幅に適応します。つまり、お使いのテーマがレスポンシブであれば、WP YouTube Lyte もそうなります。
  • ウィジットはレスポンシブではありません。
  • コンテンツの div の横幅が200ピクセルあたりで、LYTE の UI (表示) は文字化けします(また YouTube では埋め込み用の最小幅を 200px にする必要があります)。

WP YouTube Lyte は通常の YouTube リンクや iframe でも使えますか ?

はい。バージョン1.5.0以降、通常の YouTube のリンク Lyte の埋め込みに自動で転送されます。また、お使いのビジュアル投稿編集画面内に、動画のプレビューも自動で取得できます。バージョン1.7.5以降、YouTube の iframe も自動で変換可能です。

API は何をするの ?

色々です。the_content の事前解析、設定の変更、CSS の変更、 LYTE の div を HTML に変換など… lyte_helper.php_example 内にすべてのフィルター (あるいは1操作) の例があります。

All In One Seo Pack での問題

All in One SEO Pack をデフォルトにすると、httpv のリンクがまだ含まれている説明を生成します。これを削除するには、(サンプルコードが入った) lyte_helper.php (上述) を使う必要があり、aioseop フィルターに lyte_filter_aioseop_description を追加してください。

LYTE の動画をクリックすると YouTube が開くのだけど何が起きてる ?

おそらく httpv URL をリンクしたのではないでしょうか。リンクではなく単に httpv URL にします。

モバイル端末での動画の読み込みが遅いようだ

標準では (「サーバーにサムネイルをキャッシュ」が有効でなけれは)、WP YouTube Lyte は Lyte によるものの代わりに遅い通常の YouTube 動画を読み込みます。モバイル端末は自動再生に対応していないため、 Lyte の動画は、ユーザーが動画を再生するのに2回のクリックが必要です (1度目に YouTube の動画を読み込み、2度目でそれを開始)。ご希望であれば、このコードを使えば、WP YouTube Lyte は強制的にモバイル用の Lyte 動画にします(複製したテーマの functions.php に追加するか、in a seperate helper plugin (未訳)、code snippets プラグインを使います):

add_filter('lyte_do_mobile','lyte_on_mobile',10,0);
function lyte_on_mobile(){
    return true;
}

他に知るべき問題があれば教えてください ?

  • あるページ内に同じ YouTube 動画があれば WP YouTube Lyte が誤作動する場合があります (YouTube ID は固有で、この ID を DIV の IDとして使用しているためです)。

My website was shutdown due to CPU seconds, which was caused by the WP Youtue Lyte plugin. I was actually happy with this plugin until now because it's great. But now with this CPU problem - I am so unhappy!
2020年9月7日
I have a lot of videos on my website and this plugin definitely helps speed things up. Support is also fantastic, super quick responses and extremely helpful 🙂 Thanks for such a great plugin!
2020年8月21日
It do the job, what's good is this plugin replace the iframe by microdata so Google detect the video in the page even without the iframe.
2020年8月17日
Does just what I need and stops large youtube files downloading, unless the user clicks the video! Thanks!
2020年8月16日
My website has hundreds of jewelry products that have short 10-15 second Youtube videos. Before using this plugin my WooCommerce catalog pages took 11 seconds to load and had 25MB each. After using this plugin, the catalog pages load in 2.5 seconds and have about 2MB of data. This is an absolute life saver. I did find a few tutorial online of how to add custom JS to the website in order to do what this plugin does - but I'm not a coder and I just couldn't get it to work. I also have a Youtube channel where all the videos are unlisted - and my theme (virtue theme) has a custom block that prevents suggested videos from showing up. Now I can host my videos on Youtube without other videos popping up and the videos load extremely quickly. My website is WeSellVintageJewelry.Com. You can run a speed test on our pages and see for yourself how fast they load after using this plugin. We are also running the Virtue theme and WooCommerce. Thank you so much.

Sehr hilfreich in Zeiten der DSGVO (und dem Kippen von PrivacyShield), wenn man nicht auf alle Website-Funktionen verzichten möchte, sondern Dinge dezent und Datenschutzkonform einbinden kann.

  • admin-page now contains links to most recent info (blogposts) on WP YouTube Lyte (and optionally WordPress and Web Technology in general) using the excellent jQuery-plugin zrssfeed
  • bugfix: removed CDATA-wrapper from javascript as WordPress turned ]]> into ]]&gt; which broke the html (which in turn broke syndication in e.g. planets)

0.6.0

  • There now is a WP-YouTube-Lyte widget which you can add to your sidebar (see under “Appearance”->”Widgets”), as requested by the fabulous fruityoaty
  • The thumbnail is now stretched to use as much of the player as possible (thanks to css3’s background-size:contain directive, which works in all bleeding edge browsers)
  • Updated the “play”-button to fit the new YouTube style

0.5.3

  • we now wait for the DOM to be fully loaded (except for MS IE, where we have to wait for window.load) before kicking in, which means wp-youtube-lyte now functions correctly in Opera
  • fixed a bug where lyte’s javascript would overwrite the main div’s class-name (causing css-issues in some themes)
  • there’s new test-data on my blog that shows how fast wp-youtube-lyte really is.

0.5.2

  • fixed a bug where WordPress’ the_excerpt function showed wp-youtube-lyte javascript as text in excerpts
  • fixed problem where google tried to index e.g. options.php (which produced ugly php errors)
  • fixed some css-related bugs, do contact me (see FAQ) if LYTE-player isn’t rendered correctly in your wordpress-theme!
  • moved more css out of javascript to the static css-file

0.5.1

  • added new versions of images, fitting the player width (no more ugly rescaling)
  • moved a lot of css from javascript to a css-file which gets loaded on-the-fly

0.4.0

  • noscript optimizations: show image (typically useful in rss-feeds), no text if config is to show links beneath lyte-player
