inTHEtube - a YouTube video search Module


inTHEtube is a tiny (zipped in less then 34kb zip file) - but very colorful module to your xoops site, letting you add YouTube search and/or custum-keywords videos to your site.
Search results from youTube are presented as thumbnails in your site and also the real-size videos are presented in your site (future version will let you choose if to embed the movies in your site or lead to the video @ YouTube.

inTHEtube is great for spicing up your sites
Adding colors and movements ...

  • you can choose as much keywords as you want, each keyword with the number of videos you want it to show is defined in the admin side and presented at the user side (scroll-down menu with the the keywords).

  • You can choose it to show search box or not (at the admin)

 Re: inTHEtube - a YouTube video search Module

i already installed inthetube. Thanks for the great modules. But i have a few question.

1- How to make the video result to be appeared in "align --> center"? Especially in the default keywords result.

2- I think it is good if movie that open in overlay will move together when we scroll down instead of fixed at the top of the page.
