Whats the difference between global $user and user_load()?
This year I was extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity of attending the 2011 European Drupal Con in London. The five day conference was held in and around Fairfield Halls in East Croydon and involved talks and discussions amongst the Drupal community about the future of Drupal, best practices and showing new innovations which could contribute to delivering better solutions.
Following on from my previous post ‘Getting thumbnails using the Vimeo API in PHP’ I thought I’d take a look at what solutions are available for those people using a CMS to integrate with Vimeo, firstly Drupal.
In the past when adding video’s to a video gallery on my site I’ve taken a snapshot of an appropriate part of the video and used that as the thumbnail so the video is easily identifiable. This can be quite a long and tiresome process if you’ve got a video gallery of 20+ video’s and you have to take a snapshot, re-size and upload for each.
