Problems with video files in gallery!
« on: March 02, 2007, 03:18:18 pm »

I have uploaded a video file onto my gallery. But i wanted to know if its possible to change the thumbnail view of it? Because its just a big WMV sign at the moment.

And also is it possible to add a link saying "click here to download it" ?? I tried html butti just showed the code.

Help!!

And also is it possible to change the thumbnail of the video to a JPG file instead of having the "WMV" picture??

Ok so ive figured out how to add a link. But i have a question i cant figure out.

If i wanted to add a "normal" and a "thumbnail" for the videos and video itself.

Would i make a normal sized image and name it say "normal_underoath-in_regards_to_myself.jpg" if the wmv file is named "underoath-in_regards_to_myself.wmv"?????

Ok so i read it and i think i followed the instructions carefully?

i tried uploading a "normal" thumbnail.

the wmv file name is underoath-in_regards_to_myself.wmv

so i tried both of these sepereately as the normal_ picture:

normal_movie_underoath-in_regards_to_myself

normal_wmv_underoath-in_regards_to_myself

but none of them worked!?!?

could it be because i uploaded the video sepereatly thena ttempted to upload the "normal_"???

You can only have custom thumb_ images, not custom normal_ images for videos. Custom normal_ images doesn't make much sense.

Why are you naming them like that? If the video is

underoath-in_regards_to_myself.wmv

then the thumbnail is

thumb_underoath-in_regards_to_myself.jpg

...and don't batch-add the thumbnail - just upload it using your FTP app, that's all.
