How to Embed Off site Video Files to your Gallery
« on: December 15, 2008, 04:06:02 am »

I'm not sure if I'm posting this to the right forum, would moderators kindly move this if it is incorrectly posted. Or perhaps there already is a similar topic I don't know of~

I run a video gallery utilising Coppermine, and through some old threads and research, I found a very simple way to embed offsite windows media and real media video files I thought I'd share. (Assuming you own the offsite hosting account or have permission from the owner, as this would otherwise be major leeching)

I'm not a coder or programer, so I'll explain this method very plainly, if my use of terms is not fully correct, please forgive me.

How to Embed Windows Media Player files such as wmv, asf, mpg, .avi, etc
1. Upload your video file to your offsite hosting account. Eg. testvideoclip.wmv

2. Create a text file called testvideoclip.asx (can be named anything for you to correspond to the offsite clip)
In this text file you will have the following code
Code: [Select]
<ASX version="3">
<Title>testvideoclip</Title>
<Author>Me</Author>
<MoreInfo href = "http://www.myalternatesite.com"/>
<ENTRY> 
<title>testvideoclip</title>
<ref href="http://myalternatesite/testvideoclip.wmv"/>

</ENTRY>
</ASX>

simply have the <ref href="http://myalternatesite/testvideoclip.wmv"/> point to your offsite clip

3. upload this .asx text file to you coppermine gallery, and your clip will be streamed to your coppermine gallery


How to Embed Real Media Player files such as rm, rmvb etc
1. Upload your video file to your offsite hosting account. Eg. testvideoclip.rm
2. Create a text file called testvideoclip.ram (can be named anything for you to correspond to the offsite clip)
In this text file simply needs to contain the url of your rm file
E.G.
Code: [Select]
http://myalternatesite.com/testvideoclip.ram
Again, upload this clip as you normally would to your coppermine gallery, and your clip will be streamed to your coppermine gallery

If you want to create a unique thumbnail for your clip, simply upload a pic called thumb_testvideoclip.jpg to the folder holding your asx or ram file

It's that simple!!

Oh, and makesure your coppermine gallery accepts .asx and ram filetypes, otherwise just add them with your filetypes editor
asx video/x-ms-asx movie Windows media player
ram video/x-pn-realaudio movie RealMedia player

Now if someone could teach or tell me whether something similar can be done with .flv files that would be most appreciated.

Cheers!

Sorry, I just made a mistake in the above post, and realised I can't edit.

Here is the corrected instructions for streaming real media files

How to Embed Real Media Player files such as rm, rmvb etc
1. Upload your video file to your offsite hosting account. Eg. testvideoclip.rm
2. Create a text file called testvideoclip.ram (can be named anything for you to correspond to the offsite clip)
In this text file simply needs to contain the url of your rm file
E.G.
Code: [Select]
http://myalternatesite.com/testvideoclip.rm

If you want to create a unique thumbnail for your clip, simply upload a pic called thumb_testvideoclip.jpg to the folder holding your asx or ram file


-------------------
CORRECTED SECTION
ram text file should contain
Code: [Select]
http://myalternatesite.com/testvideoclip.rmNOT
Code: [Select]
http://myalternatesite.com/testvideoclip.ram

1.5 goes unsupported, you didn't post a link, you hijacked a thread and you posted in the wrong board... just to name a few. Quite a bit of rules to break on your first post. Read the Board Rules.
