Videos not showing up but are there?
« on: May 29, 2012, 06:17:17 pm »

I'm a bit cautious in posting this...

I have looked everywhere but can't seem to find any good information on why this is failing for me.

URL
http://tinyurl.com/74juxl5

for me (running MAC firefox, safari, chrome) I see nothing.  But then if I look at the source and put the actual link to the video into my URL bar it loads fine.  I'm not sure why it wouldn't load via Coppermine.

I am running version 1.5.20  I'm not sure what other information could be needed.  I host my own website so I can make any changes to the server needed.

Link to video in your gallery: http://madhatt.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=4473

Do you have QuickTime and its browser plugin installed correctly? I have not, so I cannot test it. Do the following examples work for you? http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_object.asp

Yes, It is up and running as if I put the direct link to the file in my URL it loads the movie fine.  I also tried this with a FLV file and it is also not showing up on the site.

Do I have quicktime = yes
Do I have it's browser plugin = yes
Do the following examples work? = no, not on Safari, Chrome, nor Firefox (on mac)
BUT, I'm able to watch all sorts of videos with my browsers, from MOV to FLV to AVI.

Please post some example links of videos that work in your browser (especially MOV videos).

http://www.madhatt.com/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/DSCN7129.MOV  (I can watch any .mov from my website so long as I post the deep link in the URL, the video plays right in my browser with no issues.)

I hope these are enough.

If you enter the deep link to the video it's technically something very different than playing it within a website. That second site uses the deprecated embed tag to display the video. It's sad that it seems to be necessary for QuickTime video files to use that tag. However, it has been removed during the development of cpg1.5.x. There are already several threads dealing with that issue, I'm sure one of them contains a solution how to re-add that embed tag to Coppermine. Please search the boards to find that solution.

Thank you, I will search that.

Side question (but related)

What is the best video format to use?  I don't have to use MOV, I can encode it to anything needed.

Just wanted to say thanks again.

I ended up using the plugin referenced below.
http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,62704.0.html

It works great and it actually better than what I was looking for (I think, more testing needed)

p.s. Love the software... been using it for years now...  if you guys accept donations let me know, I'd love to kick a few bones your way.

I just wanted to share with the community a little script that you can run on a linux host (with ffmpeg installed)  This script will go through all subdirectories and convert all of your .mov videos into .flv

Code: [Select]
#process all mov files to flv
for f in $(find /YOURWEBSITE/gallery/albums/ -name '*.mov')
do
ffmpeg -i "$f" -s 640x360 -ar 11025 -ab 45 -f flv "${f%.mov}.flv"
done

Then you can go into PHPmyadmin and find/replace all instances of .mov in the pictures table.

Thanks again for all the help!!
