Streaming Videos
« on: July 28, 2010, 04:57:33 pm »

Hello *,

I want to show some videos in the coppermine gallery. But this video is 150MB. If I download it in from another local pc it takes even 2 Minutes or more until it starts.

My coppermine is installed on a debian server.
There are some streaming server like vlc-nox, helix, ffmepg or others.
How can I put such a stream in coppermine?
Is it possible?

This is not a coppermine related thing as coppermine really is just a file store. Your answer is to pick a suitable file format to convert you video to. If you convert it to an flv file it will reduce its size and allow it to be streamed. Coppermine does not support flv out of the box but there are a number of plugins available that support it. There are also free flv convertors available as well as the Adobe one.

Please, always post a link to your gallery when requesting support as per the board rules. It really does help us.

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

I've setup some of my videos to stream by encoding them with h.264 and saving them as *.m4v. I had to add a line to .htaccess "AddType video/x-m4v m4v". Quicktime will stream this without any other software. Of course your viewers need to have the quicktime plugin.

Thanks for your posts.

Actually I try to set up a Streaming Server and put a Link (perhaps in a comment) to the stream.

Therefore I try to use lighttpd which has a plugin for Streaming mp4 files.

It would be easier to just use e.g. that plugin for Coppermine as Phill already suggested. But that's of course your decision 8)
