Coppermine should also allow Video
« on: October 22, 2003, 10:43:04 am »

Well there have been several requests in the past about CPG supporting video. Frankly I don't have a Video Cam nor the bandwidth to post such things on my website - consequently I am reluctant to code anything with doesn't have any tangible benifits - yeah selfish BUT thats the way it is.

However nothing prevents anyone who is interested to code such a feature and it will be included in a future release if the code is at par with the other in CPG.

So here it goes....

[edit GauGau 2005-02-18]
Although video support has been integrated into coppermine since cpg1.2.1, there are still people who request it as a feature or even reply to this thread, asking how to apply it. Let me clarify: this hack only applies for coppermine version cpg1.2.0! All previous versions (cpg1.0, cpg1.1.0, cpg1.1.1) can not be modified to have video support, all newer versions (cpg1.2.1 or better) already come with video support, so there's no need to apply this hack. This hack is only valid for users of cpg1.2.x who wish to have video support, but can not (for some obscure reason) upgrade to the most recent stable versions.
As support for cpg1.2.x is running out, I locked this thread - you should definitely upgrade, especially if you need video support.

Coppermine should also allow sounds ;). Not big MP3's, not the illegal way, but some sounds that I have recorded. So my visitors can listen to the (short) songs, and that they can comment it...

I also like video in coppermine in the future ;) Good suggestion suggestie

I think supporting sound and video is silly.  This is a Photo album app!!!  If you want a video...why not just use BBCODE to place a link to a vid file in the descritiption or something?

Actually, I'm for this in general.  Making this the Coppermine Multimedia Gallery.  Not howling for it or anything, but if someone wanted to do the work, I wouldn't be opposed.

In this case ... it would be interesting to "redo" the structure

Example ...

http://www.sortons.net/photos/thumbnails.php?album=209

Gallery is in a DIV ...

on the right we could have
"See the Video"
"See The Interview"
"See the Article"
 ...

But ... Coppermine would become a Multimedia Nuke ... and I'm not sure it's a good idea (FOR THE MOMENT) : Coppermine is great, a lot of things should have to be modified, exploited ... before to do that, even if it would be a dream to have a great tool like this.

Don't forget all is free, so ... don't abuse :)

I must admit that I have been contemplating a way to include flash movies and sound files in the gallery.  As others have discussed, a linking system with place holder thumbnails seems to be the most natural way of accomplishing this.

So you have to create for each video/sound file a new picture?

lasa, this is "general discussion" - there won't be any code on this thread (at least not that soon) that you could copy and paste into your gallery.

No, I only want to know what they do with their sounds/video's to intergrate into coppermine....

lasa,

The integration we are discussing is theoretical. To my knowledge, no one has any code to do this as of yet. We are discussing the usefulness and possible methods of integration, so all plans are just now being put on the drawing board.

The method I mentioned would allow a person to have a default image or a custom image for a file type, and when the link is followed they would go to a page where the content is delivered.

It'll be nice to have video support, specifically quicktime and Flash. I have a HTML "gallery", manually done for quicktime panoramas and some flash map. I tried to modify CPG to "support" it but didn't get far  
 :?

I don't think the inclusion of any video format would worry about GD or IM libs - perhaps as early idea you just add a link to the video, a custom image to click on before it plays..

Let's say an extra button at the Display image page beside the e-card icon or something.
A movie icon (which is ofcourse turned on/off in picture pref screen) which links to a popupwindow with the movie in it.

Then we only have to add 1 extra field in cpg_pictures which includes the path to the movie. (or add upload field)

If path/movie exists ShowButton() :D

And create a file that generates the page with movie.

This is one of the best options that I have heard on this one - but what about the UI for uploading/editing etc - that is a whole can of worms

Well the uploading is the same as jpeg/png but instead of reading and writing  it like a picture. We only "move" the uploaded file to a movies directory (or in same dir as picture)

Or just let people upload the movies themselves and just a extra field at the Picture edit: moviepath=
editOnePic.php?id=15&what=picture

DON'T grab a picture from movie, people always want to place their own picture about the movie.

and in cpg_pictures we add the xtra field (say movie_path) the path to the movie. Or a seperate table and cpg_pictures only stores the MovieID.

If someone finds a PHP source that can read the movieclip info and save the width, height and length in DB. That would be perfect.

Tarique,

I was thinking we could make use of the image_processor module.  It could easily check the file extension, and if swf, mp3, etc. files were detected it could generate a new form to ask for the thumbnail placeholder. That form could accept a custom or default picture. Then it could deliver the info to db_input, which would get the image path and the movie/music path, and store them in the appropriate folders.  The link would go in the database associated with the picture, so a button or clicking on the picture could generate a new page with the embedded content (or activate an external player) and the comments available as usual. As DJMaze said, we could check and see if the movie/music path was set and toggle the link in the HTML depending on the outcome.

It certainly won't be minor, but it would be well worth it.  Coppermine would become the most versatile free multimedia gallery available.

How far have you guys gotten with this? If it's still in the "theoretical" stage, let me know. I've peeked at the code, and I'm sure I can do it without modifying the database.
