[Plugin] linking SketchUp to YouTube

[Plugin] linking SketchUp to YouTube

Postby morisdov » Thu Jun 05, 2008 1:33 pm

I have written a nice plugin that can be beneficial for education,
presentations and customer demonstrations.

It integrates YouTube videos into SketchUp in a simple clean way than can be used by anyone.
You can associate a YouTube video with each SketchUp entity
by copying the " Embed:" text provided from YouTube.
you can have many videos associated with a single sketchup model
so each entity in your model is linked to its own video.

You can download it here:
instructions in readme.txt file in the zip.

Let me know if you find it useful.

Interesting idea, but when you re-use some code (mine in this case) take at least a look at what you're writing: the dictionnary name "link_data" hasn't been changed in your code and will cause problems to users using the two plugins :thumbd:

Thanks Didier for quick reply,

I use a unique key named "YouTube" (not very original right ?)
so there should be no problem at all for others that might
already have an existing dictionary named "link_data".
I did not know you used "link_data" since i have seen it in other
ruby examples from others not mentioning you - so i dont know who was first,
and it was indeed the first most logical name for my purpose.
You agree it is much faster to program searching google for syntax examples.
Anyway to satisfy any doubt of conflict i changed the dictionary name
to "linkdata" (without the underscore).
Others may use MY dictinary name "linkdata" with other key names
as long as they dont use MY key name "YouTube".
If there is a copyright on using "YouTube" as dictionary key names i guess i will need to change that too.

How can I export the video link with the 3D model to a kmz file?

We just can see the youtube video on sketchup?
