I’m having a similar problem.
I have a showcase imported from vimeo that loads fine however it is not showing the synopsis next to the thumbnail like it shows in the demonstration:
Is there a setting that I have missed?
thank you for your question!
First go to Settings -> FV Player Pro -> Post Interface options and make sure you have “Synopsis” enabled. This makes the synopsis filed in the shortcode editor visible.
However, the synopsis is not parsed automatically from Vimeo. You will have to write/paste it in manually.
Making the web work for you,
That would be great.
Yes I keep all my video content details stored in Vimeo, ie. synopsis, categories, tags, etc and I’ve just been creating individual posts with a single fv player code for each video then manually copy/pasting all the required info into each post.
However if there is a way to retrieve the synopsis from vimeo in the ‘Vertical Season’ playlist this would save a significant amount of time for me. As well as help simplify my my site structure.
The issue we’d be facing here is whether to pull the data once and store it or to regularly update it. What we would not be doing is pulling the data, allow local editing on your website and then try to sync the data back to Vimeo (probably not possible) or to store the data locally, allow local editing and then attempt to update the data with what’s on the Vimeo server.
Would you prefer regular updates of the Vimeo description or to pull the data once and then allow local editing (no sync back to Vimeo).
Let us know more about your workflow when you get the chance.
I agree that syncing back to Vimeo could be problematic.
I think regular updates would be preferable however I’d be happy to just pull the data once if that were a simpler option for your coding.
Ideally, my workflow would be to have all the video info/data in one place (vimeo), using FV Player as the site container, simply displaying all the info from Vimeo. In this case I would only have to setup playlists based on a vimeo ‘showcase’ and all the info (thumbnail, video length, synopsis could be managed in one place.
once you upgrade to FV Player 188.8.131.527 (the free base plugin) you should start to see the Vimeo description (first 20 words) in your Vimeo albums, channels or portfolios once they update.
This applies if you set your player to use the “Vertical Season” playlist style. A demo can be seen here: https://foliovision.com/player/demos/vimeo-channel-support
I’m using the vertical season playlist style on a page, however I am unable to add or import descriptive text as shown in the demo. I am bringing the video in from Vimeo, where it also has a description. Is there a setting I’m missing?
