Yview is now part of yTools, an integrated toolsuite for content display and performance that includes SEF, extended TOCs, enhanced pagination, metadata, video, and administration enhancements. See http://www.yofiel.com/software/web/ytools for details.
yView itself is a thumbnail generator, responsive lightbox, responsive Youtube player, and metadata generator. Please see the Website for complete user documentation.
- Creates optimal, progressive JPEG thumbnails that pass Google PageSpeed and Yslow compression tests (if Imagick is available on the server, or uses GD2 if not).
- To further improve page load time, the Youtube player displays a locally-cached thumbnail image of the Youtube video on load, then creates a Flash/HTML5 video player dynamically on play. The video player uses Youtube's newest APIs, released in 2015, for optimal performance and functionality.
- Adds image microdata, page thumbnail, and OpenGraph metadata that is accepted by Google search, Bing search, Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter (separately for image and blog pages, so it can be configured to work with any other metagenerators you have).
- Optionally removes the P tags put around IMG tags by Joomla's WYSIWIG editors.
- Creates tags and attributes that pass all W3C tests.
v1.8 (11/21//2015) includes Youtube thumbnails in blog metadata, and adds support for Google's requirement that image metadata be specified for each blog article in featured pages and blog listings.
