Hello!

We have been struggling to make your component work for our client but there are big problems in the functioning of the component that make it very hard to make a decent work out of it.

Ill try to explain the problems to see if you have a solution for it...

We have this page with several images explaining the categories of videos we have in our website

http://alicante.frostacrew.com/tv-a-la-carta

When clicking in any of the images the client must then be directed to the default video of this category which we set manually on the images as a link.

We have tried using the "seo-friendly" urls first so one of the images was linking to this url

http://alicante.frostacrew.com/component/contushdvideoshare/player/naturaleza/el-palmeral-patrimonio-de-la-humanidad1645047020

and working properly, but the day after we click on the link and the video is not found under this url because the url has changed (and we did change nothing!) to:

http://alicante.frostacrew.com/component/contushdvideoshare/player/naturaleza/el-palmeral-patrimonio-de-la-humanidad735078536

When does your component change the url suffix? Is this really needed? I mean it makes it very difficult to use your user friendly URLs from fixed links.

We have found that this kind of links can be used from fixed links:

http://alicante.frostacrew.com/index.php?option=com_contushdvideoshare&view=player&id=50&adminview=true

But the point is this videos will hardly be indexed by google as the urls are not descriptive and also there's this thing about having duplicated content in the website which will keep us from positoning our videos.

Please can you provide us with and understandable solution?

Thanks.

ppd: Also when one of this "seo-friendly" links doesn't work there is no message alerting the visitor that the video doesnt exist, nor 404 error, or redirectng with url change. Instead of this the visitor sees the first video ever loaded in the component... with the same url from the video that hasnt been found(???)

I agree, I have the same issue with SEO friendly URLs.

Right now my urls looks like this from the component with SEO friendly URL enabled:

mywebsite.com/videos/player/documentaires/senegal-beyond-tradition

Why add "player' in the URL? it is not necessary.

Also from the Recent Videos module, the URLs look like this:
component/contushdvideoshare/player/actualités/obamas-moment-in-senegal

which makes my left blocks disappear.

it should be: videos/player/actualités/obamas-moment-in-senegal

just like in the component

Please provide a fix.

Thank you!

Hi Nicolas Benitez,

We had analyzed your issue regarding SEO friendly URL with our technical team. Kindly note that when you are adding a video for first time it will save the title in the data base as per you give. Later when you try to edit the video, the title will be saved again with random number at the end in order to avoid duplication for the title. Our technical team is analyzing to remove the random number from the URL. Once they check we will provide you the solution.

Thanks,
Sharomi. M. D

Hi,

Kindly note that "player" is the layout view of our component and so it could not be removed from the URL. If you want to remove component/contushdvideoshare in the URL you can very well use SH404SEF component.

Thanks,
Sharomi. M. D

Hello Sharomi,

I find spending 40$ in SH404SEF a very poor solution for such a simple problem.

There must be cleaner(and cheaper) ways of doing this.

Hi Nicolas Benitez,

Kindly note that SH404SEF component is to remove the component/contushdvideoshare in the URL. We had checked with our technical team and in order to remove the random number in the URL, please make use of the below steps.

Here is the steps:
1. Go to FTP file path -->administrator\components\com_contushdvideoshare\models\showvideos.php
2. Find
if(!empty($total_title) || $total_title>0){
$seoTitle = $seoTitle.rand();
}

3. Now hide or remove the code.

Thanks
Sharomi M.D
