guideMedia embed

The MediaEmbed feature brings support for inserting embeddable media such as YouTube or Vimeo videos and tweets into your rich-text content.

# Demo

You can use the “Insert media” button in the toolbar to embed media like the following examples. You can also paste the media URL directly into the editor content and it will be automatically embedded.

YouTube

Vimeo

Twitter

Google Maps

# Installation

This feature is enabled by default in all builds. The installation instructions are for developers interested in building their own, custom editor.

To add this feature to your editor, install the @ckeditor/ckeditor5-media-embed package:

npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-media-embed

Then add MediaEmbed to your plugin list and configure the feature (if needed):

import MediaEmbed from '@ckeditor/ckeditor5-media-embed/src/mediaembed';

ClassicEditor
    .create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ), {
        plugins: [ MediaEmbed, ... ],
        toolbar: [ 'mediaEmbed', ... ]
        mediaEmbed: {
            // configuration...
        }
    } )
    .then( ... )
    .catch( ... );

Depending on how you will configure this feature, you may need to use services like Iframely or Embedly to display content of embedded media on your target website. Read more about displaying embedded media.

# Previewable and non-previewable media

When the media embed feature is asked to embed a specific media via its URL it needs to make a decision how this media will be displayed in the editor.

# Previewable media

If, for instance, the URL to embed is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H08tGjXNHO4 this feature is able to predict that it needs to produce the following HTML to show this YouTube video:

<div style="position: relative; padding-bottom: 100%; height: 0; padding-bottom: 56.2493%;">
    <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/${ videoId }"
        style="position: absolute; width: 100%; height: 100%; top: 0; left: 0;"
        frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen>
    </iframe>
</div>

Yes, it is quite complex, but that is the cost of making responsive content for today’s web. The crucial part, though, is the iframe’s src which the media embed feature can predict based on the given video URL and the aspect ratio (which affects padding-bottom).

Thanks to the ability to hardcode this URL to HTML transformation, the media embed feature is able to show previews of YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo videos and Spotify widgets without requesting any external service.

# Non-previewable media

Unfortunately, to show previews of media such as tweets, Instagram photos or Facebook posts, the editor would need to retrieve the content of those from an external services. Some of these media providers expose oEmbed endpoints but not all and those endpoints responses often require further processing to be embeddable. Most importantly, though, the media embed feature is often not able to request those services due to same-origin policy.

The above limitations can be overcome with a help of proxy services like Iframely or Embedly. However, the media embed feature does not support asynchronous preview providers yet. Therefore, to still allow embedding tweets or Instagram photos, we chose to:

  1. Show a placeholder of the embedded media in the editor (see e.g. how a tweet is presented in the demo above).
  2. Produce a semantic <oembed url="..."> tag in the data output from the editor. This output makes it possible to later use services like Iframely or Embedly to display the content of these media on your website.

# Configuration

# Data output format

The data output format of the feature can be configured using the config.mediaEmbed.previewsInData option.

This option does not change how the media are displayed inside the editor — the previewable ones will still be displayed with previews. It only affects the output data (see below).

# Semantic data output (default)

By default, the media embed feature outputs semantic <oembed url="..."> tags for previewable and non-previewable media. That being so, it works best when the application processes (expands) the media on the server side or directly in the front–end, preserving the versatile database representation:

<figure class="media">
    <oembed url="https://media-url"></oembed>
</figure>

# Including previews in data

Optionally, by setting mediaEmbed.previewsInData to true you can configure the media embed feature to output media in the same way they look in the editor. So if the media element is “previewable”, the media preview (HTML) is saved to the database:

<figure class="media">
    <div data-oembed-url="https://media-url">
        <iframe src="https://media-preview-url"></iframe>
    </div>
</figure>

Currently, the preview is only available for content providers for which CKEditor 5 can predict the <iframe> code: YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Spotify, etc. For other providers like Twitter or Instagram the editor cannot produce an <iframe> code and it does not, so far, allow retrieving this code from an external oEmbed service. Therefore, for non-previewable media it produces the default semantic output:

<figure class="media">
    <oembed url="https://media-url"></oembed>
</figure>

This means that, unless you limited the list of providers to only those which are previewable, you need to make sure that the media are displayed on your website.

# Media providers

CKEditor 5 comes with several supported media providers that can be extended or altered.

Names of providers with previews:

  • 'dailymotion',
  • 'spotify',
  • 'youtube',
  • 'vimeo'.

Names of providers without previews:

  • 'instagram',
  • 'twitter',
  • 'googleMaps',
  • 'flickr',
  • 'facebook'.

The default media provider configuration does not support all possible media URLs, only the most common are included. Services like Iframely or Embedly support thousands of media providers and it is up to you to define which you want to allow.

# Extending media providers

To extend the default list of providers, use config.mediaEmbed.extraProviders.

# Removing media providers

To remove certain providers, use config.mediaEmbed.removeProviders.

For instance, to leave only the previewable providers, configure this feature as follows:

ClassicEditor
    .create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ), {
        plugins: [ MediaEmbed, ... ],
        toolbar: [ 'mediaEmbed', ... ]
        mediaEmbed: {
            removeProviders: [ 'instagram', 'twitter', 'googleMaps', 'flickr', 'facebook' ]
        }
    } )
    .then( ... )
    .catch( ... );

# Overriding media providers

To override the default providers, use config.mediaEmbed.providers and define your set according to the provider syntax:

ClassicEditor
    .create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ), {
        plugins: [ MediaEmbed, ... ],,
        toolbar: [ 'mediaEmbed', ... ]
        mediaEmbed: {
            providers: [
                {
                    // A URL regexp or an array of URL regexps:
                    url: /^example\.com\/media\/(\w+)/,

                    // To be defined only if the media are previewable:
                    html: match => '...'
                },
                ...
            ]
        }
    } )
    .then( ... )
    .catch( ... );

You can take inspiration from the default configuration of this feature which you can find in: https://github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor5-media-embed/blob/master/src/mediaembedediting.js

# Displaying embedded media on your website

By default, the media embed feature produces output that does not contain previews of embedded media, called the semantic output. This means that you need to transform the output <oembed> elements into real media on your target website.

There are many ways to do that. The simplest, plug-and-play solutions are described here. You can also implement this transformation as part of your back-end service or you can use different services than described in this section.

While the easiest solution (which is described below) is to replace embedded media on the client-side, it is not necessarily the most optimal way. A more powerful and flexible solution is to request those services on your back-end. Refer to the documentation of the service of your choice for more information.

# Iframely

Iframely offers the embed.js library which converts various media URLs into rich previews. It works in the front–end and remains fully compatible with the output produced by CKEditor 5.

First, having secured the API key, load the embed.js library from the CDN into your website:

<head>
    ...
    <script charset="utf-8" src="//cdn.iframe.ly/embed.js?api_key={API KEY}"></script>
    ...
</head>

# Semantic data

You can convert all <oembed> elements like the following Twitter post produced by CKEditor 5:

<figure class="media">
    <oembed url="https://twitter.com/ckeditor/status/1021777799844126720"></oembed>
</figure>

using this short code snippet:

<script>
    document.querySelectorAll( 'oembed[url]' ).forEach( element => {
        iframely.load( element, element.attributes.url.value );
    } );
</script>

# Non-semantic data

When the feature is configured to include media previews in the output, you can still use Iframely for media embeds like the following one:

<figure class="media">
    <div data-oembed-url="https://twitter.com/ckeditor/status/1021777799844126720">
        [Media preview]
    </div>
</figure>

The above data can still be converted by Iframely with just a few extra lines of code. To do that, in addition to the code snippet from the previous section, use a slightly longer code snippet which discards the media preview saved in the database before using iframely.load():

<script>
    document.querySelectorAll( 'div[data-oembed-url]' ).forEach( element => {
        // Discard the static media preview from the database (empty the <div data-oembed-url="...">).
        while ( element.firstChild ) {
            element.removeChild( element.firstChild );
        }

        // Generate the media preview using Iframely.
        iframely.load( element, element.dataset.oembedUrl ) ;
    } );
</script>

# Embedly

Just like Iframely, Embedly offers the client–side API which converts media URLs into rich previews.

To start using it, load the library from the CDN into your website:

<head>
    ...
    <script async charset="utf-8" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js"></script>
    ...
</head>

# Semantic data

You can convert <oembed> elements like the following Twitter post produced by CKEditor 5:

<figure class="media">
    <oembed url="https://twitter.com/ckeditor/status/1021777799844126720"></oembed>
</figure>

using this code snippet:

<script>
    document.querySelectorAll( 'oembed[url]' ).forEach( element => {
        // Create the <a href="..." class="embedly-card"></a> element that Embedly uses
        // to discover the media.
        const anchor = document.createElement( 'a' );

        anchor.setAttribute( 'href', element.getAttribute( 'url ') );
        anchor.className = 'embedly-card';

        element.appendChild( anchor );
    } );
</script>

Embedly automatically discovers links like <a href="..." class="embedly-card"></a> and replaces them with rich media previews.

# Non-semantic data

In this case, the code is almost the same as with the semantic data but you should discard the media preview saved in the database before using Embedly to avoid code duplication:

<script>
    document.querySelectorAll( 'div[data-oembed-url]' ).forEach( element => {
        // Discard the static media preview from the database (empty the <div data-oembed-url="...">).
        while ( element.firstChild ) {
            element.removeChild( element.firstChild );
        }

        // Create the <a href="..." class="embedly-card"></a> element that Embedly uses
        // to discover the media.
        const anchor = document.createElement( 'a' );

        anchor.setAttribute( 'href', element.dataset.oembedUrl );
        anchor.className = 'embedly-card';

        element.appendChild( anchor );
    } );
</script>

# Automatic media embed on paste

By default, the MediaEmbed plugin loads the AutoMediaEmbed as a dependency.

The AutoMediaEmbed plugin recognizes media links in the pasted content and embeds them shortly after they are injected into the document to speed up the editing. Just like the “traditional” embedding (i.e. by using the toolbar button), automatic embedding works for all media providers specified in the configuration.

The media URL must be the only content pasted to be properly embedded. Multiple links ("http://media.url http://another.media.url") as well as bigger chunks of content ("This link http://media.url will not be auto–embedded when pasted.") are ignored.

If the automatic embedding was unexpected, for instance when the link was meant to remain in the content as text, simply undo the action (by clicking the “Undo” button in the toolbar or using the Ctrl/⌘+Z keystrokes).

# Styling media in the editor content

While the editor comes with default styles for popular media providers like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you can create additional styles for non-previewable media in your editor content to help users identify them.

# Styling non-previewable media

The HTML structure of every non-previewable media in the editor is as follows:

<figure class="media ck-widget" contenteditable="false">
    <div class="ck-media__wrapper" data-oembed-url="[ URL of the media ]">
        <div class="ck ck-reset_all ck-media__placeholder">
            <div class="ck-media__placeholder__icon">
                <svg class="ck ck-icon" ...>...</svg>
            </div>
            <a class="ck-media__placeholder__url" target="new" href="[ URL of the media]">
                <span class="ck-media__placeholder__url__text">[ URL of the media]</span>
                <span class="ck ck-tooltip ck-tooltip_s">...</span>
            </a>
        </div>
    </div>
</figure>

For example, you can create a dedicated style for media coming from the ckeditor.com domain. To do that, you will need some additional styles included in your website.

First, you must hide the generic media icon displayed for non-previewable media:

.ck-media__wrapper[data-oembed-url*="ckeditor.com"] .ck-media__placeholder__icon * {
    display: none;
}

Then, give the media a distinctive background color:

.ck-media__wrapper[data-oembed-url*="ckeditor.com"] .ck-media__placeholder {
    background: hsl(282, 44%, 47%);
}

and introduce the custom icon identifying the media:

.ck-media__wrapper[data-oembed-url*="ckeditor.com"] .ck-media__placeholder__icon {

Finally, make sure the URL in the placeholder has the right contrast:

.ck-media__wrapper[data-oembed-url*="ckeditor.com"] .ck-media__placeholder__url .ck-media__placeholder__url__text {
    color: hsl(282, 100%, 93%);
}

.ck-media__wrapper[data-oembed-url*="ckeditor.com"] .ck-media__placeholder__url .ck-media__placeholder__url__text:hover {
    color: hsl(0, 100%, 100%);
}

Before you load the data, make sure the ckeditor.com provider is enabled in your configuration. In its most basic form it could look like this:

mediaEmbed: {
    extraProviders: [
        {
            name: 'ckeditor',
            url: /^ckeditor\.com/
        }
    ]
}

Having your styles defined and the media provider configured, insert the new media into your editor, e.g. the following URL https://ckeditor.com/path/to/media. You should see something like this:

The example media style of the media

# Common API

The MediaEmbed plugin registers:

  • the 'mediaEmbed' UI button component,

  • the 'mediaEmbed' command implemented by MediaEmbedCommand.

    You can insert a new media element or update the selected media URL by executing the following code:

    editor.execute( 'mediaEmbed', { url: 'http://url.to.the/media' } );
