.MOV Files Not Showing Up/Playing on Intermediate Page
« on: December 01, 2010, 04:02:54 am »

Hello, I have a .mov file (you can see it here:  http://www.herbhost.com/miscimg/satisfaction.mov - slightly NSFW).  It plays fine in a browser window in either FF or IE8.  But it does not show up in CPG... indeed FF pops up a message that a plugin needs to be installed (see attachment).  However, there is no plugin to be installed, and the Quicktime plugin is installed.  For IE8, I get the message that an ActiveX control for QT needs to be installed but then the famous red 'X' shows up instead of the movie.
 
I've got the JW flash player installed but behavior was the same without it.

I'm stumped.  TIA.

Might I add that .flv movies play OK:  http://www.herbhost.com/pix/displayimage.php?pid=2574 - slightly NSFW
and mp4: http://www.herbhost.com/pix/displayimage.php?album=2&pid=2572#top_display_media - also slightly NSFW
 
mpg, wmv, and avi also play without issue.

TIA

And now I discover my .mov are shown with Internet Explorer, not with Firefox nor with Google Chrome. The one shown with Coppermine of course, because they are visible with all the browsers. And I notice also some pbs on other formats, with the different explorers, and worse, with Windows 7 64 and one of my computer, and Windows XP on the other one ...  ??? Sad because Coppermine is a nice product to defend  :'(

That's rather a client side issue (codecs, browser plugins, ...) than a Coppermine issue.

Yes I think you are right André, but what to do, uninstall IE, Firefox, Chrome, and reinstall them and the codecs ? and anyway mine are clean I suppose, but then what about the "normal" people coming ?

To avoid that codec trouble you can use Flash Media Player plugin. Your visitors will only need flash to watch your videos. Of course you have to convert them to flv or mp4, so the plugin can play that files.
