Rich media such as Youtube, Facebook, SoundCloud, or the hundreds of other rich media sites is great but what happens when you need more? We’ve go that covered too. The Auto Content Scraper will attempt to grab content from any submitted url. The Auto Content Scraper also now also lets your users add their own media.
How it works.
With Pligg a user submits a url. The Auto Content Scraper will check the url and scrape any content it can find from the submission and add it to the submission preview window. If you have activated the optional custom upload module the user will then have a choice of adding their own embeddable content instead of using what was found on the submitted url. A use might choose to upload a flash video of themselves, or an MP3 file of a song they had written. In this case it will accept their content and override the suggested content.
Supported File Types
You have the option to allow any or all of these file types for your users to submit content. Each file will be automatically embedded into their submission. For example if little Johnny wants to submit the MP3 of the song he just wrote, it will be automatically embedded into a player directly on your site. Visitors can play the song directly from your page. The same goes with video and we’ve got you covered by supporting almost every possible major media format.
Another great feature is that you can also allow people to link to embeddable content instead of uploading it. Got a podcast you want to share? You can link to the MP3 and it will embed it just like it would be had it been uploaded.
The Auto Content Scraper is now over 3 years old and has been constantly updated and upgraded over the years. This module uses the Pligg update notification system and will alert you in your admin panel when a new version is available.
