Social network buttons

Social network buttons

Increase your marketing impact and viewing audience via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and VK.com. Now, your viewers can share your videos directly through the video player to their social network accounts! This is a particularly important marketing tool if your videos are often embedded in third-party websites.

Instructions:

During player creation choose which social networks to display and add the link to the page to be shared when a viewer uses the ‘share’ button in the player. This general default player link will be overridden by any other links that were set for the album or for the specific video.

During album creation enter the link to the page to be used when users ‘share’ your video to a social network when watching any video from this album. This link for the album will be overridden by any other links set for specific videos in this album, and will override the general default link set for the player itself.

During video upload enter the link to the page to be used when users ‘share’ your video to a social network when watching this video. This link will override the link set for the album and the default link set for the player.

Manual customization:

Customize the plug-in:

"plugins":[{ "url":"//s3.spruto.org/embed/socialplugin.swf","settings":{ "bgColor": "#666666", "iconColor": "#FFFFFF", "iconHoverColor": "#97A841", "shareUrl": "http://spruto.com", "shareText": "spruto player", "buttons": ["TW", "VK", "FB", "G+"]} }]
  • bgColor – button background color (default - #666666)
  • iconColor – button icon color (default - #FFFFFF)
  • iconHoverColor – button mouse-over color (default - #97A841)
  • shareUrl – link to the destination page (default – uses the link parameter for the video)
  • shareText – link text (for twitter; default - uses the title parameter for the video)
  • buttons – the list of actual buttons in order of their display: TW,VK,FB,G+ (default display order - ["TW", "VK", "FB", "G+"]). If this is left blank and no buttons are chosen for display, the plug-in will be deactivated

Additional video customization parameters:

"extensions":{ "SocialSprutoPlayerPlugin":{ "shareUrl": "{shareUrl}", "shareText": "{shareText}" } } where
  • {shareUrl} – link to the destination page (has priority before the general priorities)
  • {shareText} – link text (has priority before the general priorities)
