FLV Player
« on: July 21, 2008, 02:11:48 pm »

I posted in this thread before: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,43180.60.html ... 

And this one: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,34182.0.html

Not receiving help and got bounced out to a new thread....

I followed instructions for this modification (the one referenced in the second URL) and it works just fine for the most part, however, the JW player is linked to here has a problem with an FLV that I posted... another player handles it just fine, but has no fullscreen option... Even the JW player doesn't have a button for fullscreen that I see, only click to fullscreen which is not best for me.

I would like to use another player instead, but having difficulty getting the ones I like, working.

Two of them I have tried are: http://flvhosting.com/clients/looplayer/ and http://www.osflv.com/ ... each of these, I can get the player to load, but not able to get the $flv string recognized.

Has anyone gotten either of these, or perhaps another feature rich player to work? At the very least, a button for fullscreen would be fine. Could be that the one FLV which wouldn't play through the JW player was just converted badly and the other player just doesn't complain... so, if this is the case and there is an option on JW player for a fullscreen button, rather than the click to full, that I am not aware of, I could even settle on that...

Any actual help would be appreciated...

Why don't you just re-encode the .flv that won't work? I've only ever had problems with faulty files. Some players ignore these problems (but on the whole will be visually impared) but most will refuse to play. It seems silly to write a whole new mod just for one faulty file. It is obviously your file that is the problem.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Probably so... this was actually of less importance. what is more important is having a fullscreen button....  is there a way with the JW player to have a fullscreen button rather than click screen to full? These other players do have many extra features, though... Like looplayer, which can display a site logo while playing and then the option to have similiar type videos linked to (as youtube does) is also very excellent. Again, I checked out many players and was very impressed with some of these. Just hoped that maybe someone here had tried one or more of them successfully through coppermine. BUT, once again, just a simple fullscreen button in the bottom right corner of the player would be satisfactory.

Ok, how about scratch all of that... unless someone has an answer for the other players... the JW FLV Player is at version 4, the params are a bit different... an easy code copy and paste for this one, perhaps? :)

I have this working fine with JW Media Player 3.16, still, though, getting version 4 would be good... more of a problem is testing on an older computer running Win2k, both through Firefox 3 and IE 6, this player does not work. The latest flash plugin is installed... so am a bit stumped on this. The very old basic player, does work on the win2k machine, however, so, to make certain that people with older machines can still access this media, how difficult would it be to have an option button to load an alternative player? Like, "If video does not play, click HERE to use another player"... something like that... I am still not skilled enough with PHP and such... could give it a go with some trial and error, but thought I'd post and see if someone else has an easy answer... being semi-lazy ;)
