    [Video Listing View] [with Addison Berry]
  • 0:07
    So we've sorted out how to get our YouTube videos onto the website
  • 0:10
    with very little work on our part.
  • 0:13
    And again, what we really need to do though here is pull these together
  • 0:17
    so that people can find the listing of videos pretty easily
  • 0:21
    and know that there are videos on the site.
  • 0:23
    So in this lesson we're gonna use the Views module
  • 0:26
    and we're gonna create a video listing page that has all of our video nodes on it.
  • 0:32
    And then we're gonna create a home page block
  • 0:35
    so that we have that block that points people to where's the video page.

Video Listing View


We have our video content type created, and we can get our videos on the site. The final step to completing this website is to create our video listing page and front page block. Like we did with the music views, we will clone an existing view to speed our work. To get our videos to display properly though we're going to have to dive deeper into our file type display settings, and in particular we will look at both a file type field setting, and the actual file display to get a custom-sized embedded video player on our listing page.
