Re: Displaying videos from Youtube in Coppermine.

Does this actually upload the youtube file to my server?  Or is it linking to youtube?  I'm looking around the coppermine forums and it is a question I am curious of.  I read there is no remote storage option for coppermine, does this hack null that.  This might be another subject all together, but would it be possible to feed video through coppermine from other sites.  Take a url from somesite.com/videos/video_x.wmv and play that video on the coppermine page without storing the file locally.

I am looking at this for my site and giving away the original URL is no problem, in fact I want it displayed for credit purposes and I've added a field for the video creator to put their website address on every video.

Thanks the excellent support and excellent script,

A already answered this question - it is just a link. The thumbnail is copied to the server but that is all.

You can add code to stream videos from anywhere you like.

Awesome, I will take a much closer look at your code today (I have the YOUTUBE working) and see if I can massage it into what I need. 

Any quick tips on doing this?

This really helps my effort.  I was getting frustrated with godaddy's file size limits.

I will post what I can figure out on changing the godady limit to 8MB, as well as the streaming other formats.

I have put in all the code, can upload a youtube video fine, but when it comes to display on the theme, there is only a small thumbnail. Clicking on the thumbnail does nothing. Can someone tell me where I may have messed up? I've tried using a upload.php from a working source which tells me it might be a server thing. Thanks for any help.

Yes, I had the same when I switched themes.  You have to make the changes in every theme.php file or you will just get the thumbnail.

I uploaded the script to my production server to work out all the bugs there and not have to do it twice. All works well until I go to view the newly uploaded video. I get a white box. www.frankandmarywatson.com/vids

I have entered the code to work with PHP4 and made all the needed chmod adjustments.

Thank you.

You have some issue with duplicate files. Add a video you have never added before.

Ok, I uploaded a new video and it worked. Awesome! How do I clear all the history of all vids to start over? Is there a way to dissallow or change dup uploads?

Duplicates are normally handled fine by Coppermine, but since this is just a hack it is not so clean. You need to delete the thumbnails of the youtube videos from your FTP (thumb_youtube_xxx.jpg)

and those are in albums/userpics/xxx   ?

I've delete those, didn't fix the white vids. Did I miss something?

It won't fix existing problems. It will stop it happening for future videos.

Ok, that works for me. Seems to have done the trick. I have one more question. Is it my understanding that if you have private vids only, this is not for you? There is no way to add the site as a user somehow and allow viewing of private vids?

Ok, so it works great! Thank you for this!

If anyone has info on how to display private vids on your website without the user being logged into youtube as well, that would be great information. Maybe the site can have an open session with youtube and be listed as a friend somehow...? What are the thoughts on this? Can it be done?

Thanks Nibbler... Thanks to anyone else who posts!

Nibbler has explained this, you are probably uploaing duplicate files.  Try uploading something you have never uploaded before and see if it comes out successfully.  If it works, then you should just have to change the file names for uploading the duplicate files.
