Title: Flash Media Player plugin with visual integration (play flv/mp4/mp3/aac files)
Post by: Αndré on December 01, 2009, 04:09:38 pm
This plugin uses JW Media Player (http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flv-player/) to play mp4, flv, webm, aac, mp3 and ogg files in your gallery (please consider the noncommercial license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/) of the player).


Installation is as simple as it can be: just install the plugin with the plugin manager. That's all.


If you want to use a skin, just copy the skin file to the corresponding directory (plugins/flash_media_player/skins/). The plugin automatically uses the skin file if there's one (and only if there's exactly one skin file).


You can also store your media files on another server and embed them with this plugin. Just add the target URL to a blank text file and then rename it exactly as the target file (including its extension!).

To use JW Player's YouTube support, just add one of the supported URL formats (see box below) to a blank text file and change its extension to either mp4, flv or webm. You need at least the plugin version 2.0 to use this feature (version 2.1 if you want to use webm file extension).

It's a good idea to upload thumbnails for your audio/video files with the Custom Thumbnail plugin (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,60272.0.html).

I installed the media player plug in as well as JW player and created a thumbnail pic. When I click to view the vide, all I get is an overlay that says "Video not found or access denied". Any ideas on how to fix that?

I have performed some actions on this plugin in the subversion repository. First of all, I renamed it to give it a more descriptive name to "flash_media_player".  Secondly, I have added a changelog and license file and have removed the reference to the GNU GPL: if this plugin is based on a piece of software that is being released under the creative commens license you can't release a piece of software that uses the library under another license - that's what the creative commons license clearly says. The rest of my changes are purely cosmetical.

Good job though on the plugin: it works flawlessly for me out of the box on all of my testbeds as far as I can see.

Post by: Joachim Müller on January 09, 2010, 12:31:56 am
The underlying player is not being developed by us. So the answer probably is no.

This thread is going into a direction that it should not go: there is currently no support for cpg1.5.x yet and therefore no support for this plugin neither. Use this plugin at your own risk.

As long as the player doesn't avi, this plugin doesn't support avi, too.

Just change the Coppermine setting accordingly.

You have two possibilities:
1.) Change the dimensions in the 'edit file' form (edit_one_pic.php)
2.) Set the default aspect ratio in codebase.php. Add something like
Code: [Select]
if ($CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']==0 || $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']==0) {
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth'] = 640;
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight'] = 360;
}

Thanks for that, i have now checked the autoplay off in settings :) and i found that specifying the dimensions 640 x 360 in the file info works, as they were 0 x 0

Post by: Joachim Müller on March 22, 2010, 07:46:21 am
The message means exactly what it says: that the version can't be determined, that's all. It doesn't say "don't use the plugin". It just says "hey, I'm not sure if the plugin you're about to install matches the version of coppermine". The message just means that you (as a human) have to check because the machine can't. So you check: what version of the plugin are you trying to install? If it's this version (the one that comes with this thread) and you're actually using cpg1.5.x, you're fine to go ahead and use the plugin. We can't tell you more, as you failed to respect board rules (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,55415.msg270616.html#msg270616).

Hi Andrè, thanks for this, i'm using this for a video gallery and it works pretty well =)

2 questions. I often need subtitles for my videos, and JWPlayer has a plugin for this. I edited codebase.php and concatenated some more stuff to the $player string, specifically:

Code: [Select]
$subtitle = substr_replace($file, "srt", -3);
$player .= "&plugins=captions-1&captions.file={$subtitle}";

I'm aware this is as rough as it can possibly get, but it works nice if you assume video and subtitles filename are the same. I was wondering if you could help me refining this, in particular i'd like to check if <filename>.srt exists before adding the necessary arguments.

The second question is: views counter does not increase when playing a video with your plugin. Is it possible to make it do so?

Thanks for the hint.I see the difference  :)
but the second link doesn't work as I don't have any 15x folder. The story is that I reused the 14x folder when upgrading to 15x as I had many links out pointing on the albums. So all the pictures are in 14x/albums and that is working even that the link actually says 15x/albums there as well. Apparently the plugin for mp4 (in my case) looks at the full URL and the pictures only at a relative URL.
I've just tested to add the file into a new 15x/albums folder and now I got sound, but no picture...

It is absolutely mandatory that you enter the gallery URL setting properly - if you don't, you will almost certainly experience "funny" behaviours of your gallery.

Please try another mp4 file and make sure if it's really encoded in mp4. Maybe the current video codec is not supported by the player, as the file is no mp4 video but has that file extension.

You're right, Αndré, it's the video itself. Darn! That's the video format my Palm Pre smartphone creates its videos in, but apparently it's not doing H.264 encoding so it won't play back in Flash, period. So, there's nothing you or anyone else can do. Thanks so much for your help!

Post by: ShiversOfHorror on August 29, 2010, 01:27:23 am
I'm trying to figure out where to change the default size of my FLV videos. I came across this post, and attempted #2. I added that code to the bottom, switching out the size I needed, but it did not work.

Just change the Coppermine setting accordingly.

You have two possibilities:
1.) Change the dimensions in the 'edit file' form (edit_one_pic.php)
2.) Set the default aspect ratio in codebase.php. Add something like
Code: [Select]
if ($CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']==0 || $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']==0) {
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth'] = 640;
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight'] = 360;
}

I don't know if I understand the first option well. So from looking at the following line of code:

Code: [Select]
            <object type="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['mime']}" width="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']}" height="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']}" data="$player">
I tried to find where $CURRENT_PIC_DATA was in the edit_one_pic.php, but I couldn't find the different types of them - like displayed above in my code box.

I thought with the original edits for 1.4.x it was in theme.php. But after looking at everything I think I'm just confusing myself more. I need my videos to default to 512x384.

It's a good idea to upload thumbnails for your audio/video files with the Custom Thumbnail plugin (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,60272.0.html).

Does that mean we cannot do the "thumb_videonamehere.jpg" method anymore?

I am switching from 1.4.x to 1.5.8 and I have tons of videos that are uploaded by this method, is that going to be a problem after the upgrade?

Of course you can use that method. That plugin just helps you to upload custom thumbnails, especially when you or your users upload files via http.

I know I can fill in the specific size for each video, but there must be some way to code it into it so I don't have to edit each one right?

Also, I uploaded both video and thumbnail like on 1.4.x and it didn't work for me, and I realized its probably because somehow one extra character got into the thumbnail name lol.

Open codebase.php, find
Code: [Select]
$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight'] += 24;and replace with
Code: [Select]
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth'] = 512;
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight'] = 384;
    $CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight'] += 24;

Hi all,

I have updated CPG to 1.5.8 and added this flash media player plugin.
I had written a script to make thumbnails from .FLV and upload them to CPG so I don't use the Thumbnail plugin.
All works OK except the bottom of the page where previous and next video thumbnails appear.
101011_coppermine_flv_1 shows the video album with the video thumbnails that are OK
101011_coppermine_flv_2 shows the video playing ans the strange looking thumbnails for previous/next videos

Thanks in advance for any track where I should look to.

PS : I would prefer not to post link to the gallery as it is a personal/family one, thanks for your comprehension.

OK, please excuse-me to have posted prior to investigate further ...

It turns out that the script I wrote to make thumbnails from FLV was creating a file named thumb_my-flv-filename.jpg in original .flv format (640*480 in my case).
Looking at the others files thumb_*.jpg in CPG (from pictures), I see they are in 100*75 format.
That's why the 'film strip' had a so big height and was displaying strange thumbnails.

I have just updated my script to make :
normal_my-flv-filename.jpg in original .flv format
and a :
thumb_my-flv-filename.jpg in 100*75 format

Film Strip is now OK.

(This is probably what the Custom Thumbnail script do)

Hope this might help others.

Check you have your gallery url set correctly in config. It seems to be pointing to a different domain.

Are the links at the bottom of your page intentional or were you hacked while running 1.5.6 ?

Hello wondering if anyone could help me with this plugin for 1.5 for flash media. I installed the plugin but when I try to view media all I see is well nothing, not even a placeholder and don't hear anything either. I tried this is main gallery and even tried a fresh test gallery install and neither work.

Main gallery

Got a browser operability question. Hollowmoon.com.au (http://Hollowmoon.com.au) is a site I have just thrown together for a friend. Using the twenty ten template I am getting good results all round, bar Safari. It is displaying the white box but no player and the following when Safari - Windows/Activity log is checked:

You don't have permission to access /plugins/flash_media_player/player.swf on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Firefox and IE8 are testing fine. Have disabled player and all plugins, and have just had player installed alone (also remembering to clear out the cache each time changes are made) without any luck still for Safari.

My question I guess is that even though all the chmod changes needed have been made as per Coppermine's install guide, do I need to go one step further when it comes to Safari operability. Is this observed behaviour for anyone else. More than happy to get test account details up as well.

Hope I have followed rules, quite new to the whole thing.

Is there anyway to use a custom skin for the player from JW's site? If I just use the default skin everything works fine but try to use a custom skin it doesn't.

@purplefreak3: You cannot just replace the player file with the skin, but have to add the skin as parameter as described in the docs (http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/addons/10630/enable-skins-in-the-jw-player).

I've tested your preferred skin and it works for me. Just copy the skin file to the flash media player directory. Then open codebase.php, find
Code: [Select]
        $player = "plugins/flash_media_player/player.swf";
        $player .= "?file=$file";
        $player .= "&image=$thumb";
        $player .= "&autostart=$autostart";
        $player .= "&backcolor={$style['background']}";
        $player .= "&frontcolor={$style['color']}";
        $player .= "&lightcolor={$style['color']}";
and replace with
Code: [Select]
        $player = "plugins/flash_media_player/player.swf";
        $player .= "?file=$file";
        $player .= "&image=$thumb";
        $player .= "&autostart=$autostart";
        $player .= "&backcolor={$style['background']}";
        $player .= "&frontcolor={$style['color']}";
        $player .= "&lightcolor={$style['color']}";
        $player .= "&skin=plugins/flash_media_player/controlpanel.swf";

I'll try to add an auto detection that checks if a skin is in the plugin directory and uses it automatically.

Hello,

First of all, thanks for this plugin!

I am in the process of migrating my 1.4.26 Coppermine installation to 1.5.8.  I have just about everything running like I want except for this Flash Media Player plugin which is generating javascript errors in Internet Explorer every time that it runs a flash video. Also, The "Display/Hide File Information" button on the nav bar does not work for flash videos with Internet Explorer 7/8 either and also presents the javascript errors. I have tested using IE7 and IE8 and neither runs without generating javascript errors and the "Display/Hide File Information" button does not work with either version of IE either.  The good news is that everything appears to work properly with Firefox and Chromium.  However, I have put this migration project on hold until I can solve these IE problems since so many people use the IE browsers.

Here is a link to a flash video in my 1.5.8 installation:

http://dickens.com/gallery_1.5.8/displayimage.php?album=41&pid=1109#top_display_media

Upon playing a flash video, the javascript error icon appears on the bottom left of IE's status bar. Click on the error icon on the bottom left of the status bar and IE will present a window with the following errors:

Quote
Line: 1
Char: 156
Error: 'null' is null or not an object
Code: 0
URL: http://www.dickens.com/gallery_1.5.8/displayimage.php?album=41&pid=110

Here is a link to the same video on my 1.4.26 installation where everything works properly without javascript errors and with the "Display/Hide File Information" button working properly as well:

http://www.dickens.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=41&pos=0

Please note that I have autostart enabled on the 1.5.8 version but it is disabled on the 1.4.26. For my 1.4.26 installation, I am using the modifications described here to accomplish the flash integration:

http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,34182.msg221287.html#msg221287

Please let me know if anyone else has seen these problems.  If so, then I would appreciate any advice that you could offer on how to fix these issues. Also, if there is something obvious that I am doing wrong then please let me know. FWIW, I have been able to reproduce this problem both with my own custom theme as well as with the default Coppermine "Curve" theme.

Thanks,

Gordon

I didn't see any problems with the video player and didn't see any error messages, but I am also using IE9 as oppose to the older versions you are talking about so just might be a bug.

Hi  purplefreak3,

Thanks for the reply!

I have modified the plugin so that it does not any longer generate the javascript errors on my site.  However, the javascript errors are still produced by the stock unmodified flash_media_player plugin running with the stock unmodified Coppermine gallery.  Also, I visited some other peoples links from this thread where you can see the javascript errors in the lower left hand portion of IE's status bar such as here:

http://www.beautifuljodelle.com/gallery/displayimage-10315-_Case_39_TV_Spot_Face_It_.html

So, I'm not the only one who has seen this. BTW, the "show/hide file info" button works on the above gallery, however, I have tested  an older version of the jwplayer with the stock plugin where the javascript errors occur but the "show/hide file info" button still works just like here.

I am still working the kinks out on my site but when I am done then I will post the changes that I have made to the plugin to make it work properly without any javascript errors and with a functioning "show/hide file info" button.  I am not very experienced with php and so this is taking me alot longer than it should.

FYI,

Gordon

Post by: gldickens3 on November 13, 2010, 05:20:30 pm
I never did figure out why the Flash Media Player plugin was generating javascript errors in Internet Explorer 7/8 every time that it ran a flash video.  The problem is in the codebase.php script but it must be subtle because I couldn't figure out why.  So, I just rewrote the pertinent lines of codebase.php based on what I had successfully implemented in my 1.4.26 installation.  Attached is the modified codebase.php file.

Please note the following:

1) I also modified the code to use the normal_ file for the video's background wallpaper.  If a normal_ file does not exist, then the script defaults back to the thumb_ file as in the original plugin.
2) I don't use flashplayer skins and I cannot therefore test them so I disabled that functionality.  However, it should be easy for somebody that uses skins to add that back in and test it.

Disclaimer: I am not very experienced with php and I am sure that there is a better way to do this.  However, the script now works great in my gallery without the javascript errors so I am happy.  Anyone is welcome to use these modifications, however,  test it thoroughly.  User beware!

I have written a few bash scripts that make it very easy to quickly convert videos in any format to flash format (flv) and for creating thumbnails (thumb_ files) and intermediate photos (normal_ files) from video files.  Attached is a file named video2ools.tar.gz file which includes the following four scripts:

video2pics - Create thumb_ and normal_ pics from a video in the current directory.
video2pics4all - Create thumb_ and normal_ pics from all videos in the current directory (batch mode).
video2flv - Create a flash video (<videoname>.flv) from a video of a certain type in the current directory.
video2flv4all - Create flash videos (<videoname>.flv) from all videos of a certain type in the current directory (batch mode).

These scripts require that ffmpeg and imagemagick are installed.

Hi,

I briefly see a javascript error for only a small fraction of a second as the page begins to load with:
Quote
http://dickens.com/gallery_1.5.8/displayimage.php?pid=1109
However, there are otherwise not any javascript errors displayed thereafter as the page is completely loaded.  That isn't perfect, but I think that its much better than before.

I realize that the embed tag is deprecated for the object tag but, as described above, for some reason the object tag approach is generating tons more javascript errors and I have so far been unable to devise a way to fix it.

I have revised the bash scripts that I posted earlier which make it very easy to quickly convert videos in any format to flash format (flv) and for creating thumbnails (thumb_ files) and intermediate photos (normal_ files).  Attached is an updated file named video2ools.tar.gz file which includes the following four scripts:

video2pics - Create thumb_ and normal_ pics from a video in the current directory.
video2pics4all - Create thumb_ and normal_ pics from all videos in the current directory (batch mode).
video2flv - Create a flash video (<videoname>.flv) from a video of a certain type in the current directory.
video2flv4all - Create flash videos (<videoname>.flv) from all videos of a certain type in the current directory (batch mode).

These scripts require that ffmpeg and imagemagick are installed.

Download the tarball and extract its contents using "tar xvzpf video2ools.tar.gz".

When using video2flv and video2flv4all you can examine the source videos to determine their video bitrate, video frame rate and audio bitrate using ffmpeg -i <videoname.wmv>.

A play button is applied to the thumb_ images by the video2pics and video2pics4all scripts.  You need to specify the location of the playbutton on the source image and the size of the thumb_ and normal_ images in the scripts.  The playbutton included in the tarball is named playbutton.gif but you can use your own playbutton image if you prefer.  By default, the playbutton.gif image is placed in the top left hand corner of the thumbnail using "northwest" in the composite command in the scripts. The default thumb_ size is width = 109 and normal_ size = 640.  However, you can change the location of the play button, thumb_ size and normal_ size to wherever you would prefer by modifying the convert and composite commands in the script.

First of all, great plugin!
One issue that some of my users have is that when they use my site from an iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, they cannot view the video because they are in flash.  The solution to this is to show the video using HTML5 video tags.  However, flash is still the better solution for most computers.  So, what I'm working on is a way to show the JW flash player on systems that have flash, and show the HTML5 player on systems that do not have flash.

Code: [Select]
<object id="FlashID3" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']}" height="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']}" data="$player">
          <param name="movie" value="$player" />
          <param name="quality" value="high" />
          <param name="scale" value="exactfit" />
          <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
          <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
          <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
          <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don't want users to see the prompt. -->
          <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->
          <!--[if !IE]>-->
          <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="$player" width="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']}" height="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']}">
            <!--<![endif]-->
            <param name="quality" value="high" />
            <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
            <param name="scale" value="exactfit" />
            <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
            <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->
            <div>

<video
    src="$file"
    height="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']}"
    poster=$thumb
controls="controls"
    width="{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']}">
</video>


            </div>
            <!--[if !IE]>-->
          </object>
          <!--<![endif]-->
                    <!--<![endif]-->
     
     
        </object>
EOT;

It almost works (the HTML5 player shows the thumbnail image, but no video).  Right now I'm trying to solve the issue of no video (as in determining which variable to use for the "src").  If anyone has any idea, let me know.

Wonderfull plugin :) It worked directly.

But I saw something strange in the filmstrip below the movies, which wasn't there before.
At the thumbs overview I get all thumbs, but in the filmstrip some of them are larger images (see attached screenshots).

Can it be something influenced by this plugin?
Without the plugin, I only get trashcans as thumbs and images.

They're very old, I don't remember.

But I'm sorry, it isn't anything your plugin did wrong, it was me.

I went to check the thumbs with "identify -format '%w %h\n' " and found out the thumbs were of the wrong size.
I guess the filmstrip of 1.5 is different to the from 1.4 which shows the thumbs small.

Sorry to bother you.

Good plugin.  If anyone is interested, I'll attach the codebase file.

I'm looking forward to your contribution. It cannot hurt to have that file available here :)

Hello,
Is it possible that the video is displayed in real size to the player  (not full screen, there is a button for that) when reading the file.
It seems to me that the video appears like in the configuration of Coppermine to the adjustment of the intermediate image. (But maybe it's not like that).

Thank's

That's intended, as PHP cannot fetch the video dimensions afaik. If you set the dimensions in the edit files form, they will be used.

Fabulous, I do not know this possibility.
The world (with Coppermine) is wonderful.

I use Custom Thumbnail plugin as recommended, but but when I view the video page /coppermine/displayimage.php, after the video (when an automatic start) is the thumbnail that appears in large format.
So the quality is really bad. Can not we create an intermediate image of better quality?

Thank's

Not related to this plugin. Please post your question in the custom thumbnail plugin announcement thread.

Hello,

sorry, i've the same problem like the User in Post 3 - but i find no Solution in the Thread. Of Course my english is not so good, to understand 100% of the written below.

For my better understanding, i dont have to install the JW-Player 5.4 from the longtailvideo-side (i dont have), i have only to install the plugin via the coppermine admin-plugin-page (i have - its on the side from installed plugins).

My Gallery and the related videos are at www.kajotes.de

Whats wrong with me or my coppermine?

Claus

@André
Thanks a lot - it works - a little - now the .flv-file is playing perfectly, but the same original handy-file as mp4 is playing without pictures, only with sound. Its a problem with the decoding/recording from my handy or a known plugin-problem?

Seems that your handy uses a codec that isn't supported by the player. I cannot fix that, as I'm not the author of the flash player (http://www.longtailvideo.com).

Version 1.8 (attached to initial post) now uses the intermediate-sized picture as preview, if available. Additionally the player.swf file has been updated to version 5.4.1492.

This year, Christmas has come earlier.

Thank you for this update of the plugin that works perfectly.
With its intermediate image is much more beautiful, for sure.

I wish you a very good Christmas.

Sure. Just have a look at the HTML code when you view the video and copy that code to your blog.

I installed the media player plug in as well as JW player and created a thumbnail pic. When I click to view the vide, all I get is an overlay that says "Video not found or access denied". Any ideas on how to fix that?
I could not find where you answered the part about "Video not found or access denied". I am getting the same message. Pleas help.

Thanks

Seems that the player doesn't support your video. Please try a different file. The file size doesn't matter, as the video immediately starts to play, even if it hasn't been downloaded completely.

Thanks for all your help. I have got it working I changed some settings in CS5 that I used to render the video from stills.

OK So I spoke too soon. I've installed the plugin on a new site, but I can't get it to work even with the same video file. The link on my new site is http://3d4u.pixnpix.com/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=10001&pid=1#top_display_media

There are some files that doesn't belong to the plugin in the plugin directory: http://3d4u.pixnpix.com/plugins/flash_media_player/

Please uninstall the plugin, delete the whole folder, re-upload it and install again.

The only thing I can see is that I am using a subdomain 3d4u.pixnpix.com instead of a domain such as balloondecor.co.za I don't know if that helps.
That doesn't matter.

I'm currently not able to access your gallery as you restricted the access for guests, but when I was able to look at the source, I couldn't see the anything of the plugin output (it usually creates an object tag to embed the player). Have you modified some core files or have a lot of code in your theme's theme.php file?

hm, this is weird, when I try uploading a video (in this case flv but it also did it with a wmv) on either of my galleries it just fails and I get this error:

Attach images instead of hotlinking them. Try to upload the files with the simple upload form or ftp + batch-add.

Is there any way to add Video Files (MP4) when they are already on the Webspace or some other Webspace than where the Gallery is hosted. Which means when I have a direct link to a Video file. Is there a way to add that ? Otherwise I would need to reupload Videos I already did upload onto my FTP and that would first of take forever and wouldnt make sense to do again.

Any info on that ?

Thanks in advance.

Post by: Αndré on June 16, 2011, 03:59:32 pm
I see the following possibilities:
1. Move the files on your webspace
2. Upload 'fake' video files and then use some server-side redirect rules to point to the 'real' video files
3. We have to modify this plugin (or maybe better: the Remote Videos plugin) so you can upload text files containing the url to the video file. I thought this has been already done, but I haven't found it in this board.


For option 3) I have 2 ideas:
1. Invent a new file extension (e.g. flvx/mp4x) that just contains the url to the video file
2. Modify this plugin so it expects the same as 1) when the file is smaller than e.g. 1 KB. In that case it would check for a valid video url and uses that url instead of embedding the current file as video file
Title: Re: Flash Media Player plugin with visual integration (play flv/mp4/mp3/aac files)
Post by: Wolfseye on June 16, 2011, 04:05:26 pm
Thank you very much. Again, because I am really not the plugin kinda guy (too stupid I guess) i hoped a solution to that would exist already. As for the Remote Video plugin, I have that installed and it works fine for Videosites like Youtube etc. but this is something else. Not sure if that works. And, as for the plugin suggested, I always create the files (Youtube URL) by hand and then upload it to one of my Batch folder and that is how I import them into my gallery.

I don't know any more. :(

Anyways, I thank you very much for your help. Seems some things still can't be done if the knowledge how to make them, is not available.
But thats life, ain't it ? ;)

Modify this plugin so it expects the same as 1) when the file is smaller than e.g. 1 KB. In that case it would check for a valid video url and uses that url instead of embedding the current file as video file

Open codebase.php, find
Code: [Select]
$file = $CONFIG['ecards_more_pic_target'].get_pic_url($CURRENT_PIC_DATA, 'fullsize');and below, add
Code: [Select]
        if ($CURRENT_PIC_DATA['filesize'] < 1024) {
            $file_content = file_get_contents($CONFIG['fullpath'].$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['filepath'].$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['filename']);
            preg_match('/^(http|ftp)s?:\/\/.*\.'.$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['extension'].'$/i', $file_content, $matches);
            if (count($matches)) {
                $file = $matches[0];
            }
        }


Now create a new text file with the url of your mp4 video, change the file extension to 'mp4' and upload it to your gallery. Please report if it works as expected.

Note: this is just a draft, as the regex should be optimized. It may be possible that potential attackers inject HTML code to your gallery. If you're the only person who can upload files to your gallery you're fine.

Automatic skin detection has been developed here (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,62704.msg336523.html#msg336523). It currently just supports SWF skins. If you want to use XML skins you have to edit codebase.php.

Having trouble uploading video content to Coppermine. Not sure if it's a Coppermine issue or a FMP issue. My site is a WP 3.5.1 site with phpBB 3.0.11 and Coppermine 1.5.22 integrated. I have your FMP, Open Search, Online Stats, and Social Sharing (in that order) plugins activated. File upload limit is set at 600MB in both Coppermine config and php.ini.

Site is westerntrailrider.com/coppermine

Critical Error message is from coppermine/db_input.php, line 71, indicating  missing parameter:

What file size has the file you try to upload? Does it work with smaller files? Did you used the flash uploader or the simple upload form? Using FTP + Coppermine's batch-add feature is recommended for large files.

Plugin version 2.2 attached here (Αndré, please feel free to move to your initial post and edit this, as appropriate). I've upgraded the JW Player from version 6.1.2972 (in plugin version 2.1) to 6.7.4071 (released 2013-11-07). Full changelog for JW Player 6 is here (http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/28835/release-notes).

If you've had issues with MP4 files not playing, this update likely will not help (I finally threw in the towel and converted my MP4's to FLV). However, there have been some major enhancements since 6.1, including full screen playing when iframes are supported, and skinning for mobile devices.

Enjoy.

Hi, Mario...

Is this problem on just a single video or all? What format(s) are you using, and what other details (size, geometry, etc.)? I've found the player to be particular about some things, and even formats which are supposed to be supported often (for seemingly no reason) do not play.

Cheers

(You didn't have a link posted for me to try it... I'm not sure whre in your gallery an example of this one is...)

Both of these plugins (Flash Media Player and Remote Videos) involve imbedding an object in the webpage with the flash player. It wouldn't surprise me if the same issue in the theme is causing both problems...

As always, the theme is designed for use in my own gallery. In hope it will be usefull to others, I am sharing it here. Use at your own risk.
The author hasn't been active here in almost 3 years.
There is also a link to a curve-floog theme that addresses some other issues. You might want to try that as an alternative.

It is possible one of the other devs may recognize the issue, and be able to help... But no guarantees.

The plugin uses the width/height settings of your Coppermine gallery by default. If you set any width/height values in a video's file information (edit_one_pic.php), those values will used instead. So either you need to adjust the default values of your Coppermine gallery (of course this will also apply to pictures!), or you need to set it manually for each video.
