I upgraded to 1.4.9 from 1.4.5 and my WMV videos do not play (flash ones do play) they appear as a black screen with the play button greyed out.
I have tried to apply the patches to the theme.php, i had to copy the one in from the samples dir previous to that.


$players['WMP'] = array('id' => 'MediaPlayer',
                                'clsid' => 'classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" ',
                                'codebase' => 'codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112" ',
                                'mime' => 'type="application/x-mplayer2" ',

Also i tried Firefox and the videos do play but at the resolution i uploaded them at and not the larger screen size i configured coppermine to play them. The video is played against a black background which appears to be at the enlarged resolution size i configured coppermine to play the video at.
Videos used to play fine with 1.4.5 and i am using the same computer.  ???

Regarding the issue with the video in Firefox, I can't attribute that to coppermine at all since i only tried FF after reading previous posts related to videos not playing. I simply downloaded FF just to help diagnose this problem.

Just wanted to point that out before the forum police nab me for posting 2 problems in the same post  ;)

First of all, I would recommend that you not use plain mpeg files - they're not meant for Internet deployment.  Try using wmv streams or Quicktime files.

Second, you haven't applied the changes that Nibbler's link points to.  Trust us that the changes put forth in that link  fixes this issue.  It has made many users happy over past few weeks.  Follow the instructions carefully and you'll be back in business.

I copied the theme.php from samples to the classic theme and made the modifications as that posts suggests.
What I have since found out is that if i use the classic theme the videos work and if i use any other theme then they dont.


i dont use mpeg file normally it just happens to bt the only vid file i could find to put together a test vid. All my videos are flash and wmv

Try reading this thread.  If you apply the fix to include/themes.inc.php then all of your themes will work.

yes once i included the changes at the /inlcude dir things worked out fine. i should have read the whole thread(s)  word for word as you and others have suggested, it just took a while, be great to have an FAQ with direct instructions for recent common problems  ;) for whoever has the time  ;D
