Streaming Media & MP4 Support
« on: September 10, 2004, 12:16:09 pm »

Would it be possible to add support for video and audio streaming in Coppermine?

photoKorn Media Gallery supports audio & video streaming, which is a really nice feature:

Also coud Coppermine add support for the MP4, M4A, M4V formats?

can you give an example of actual streaming? I can only see the same thing coppermine is capable of: displaying multimedia in the browser (that actually get downloaded). I don't think actual streaming can be built in without proper server support.

Adding other filetypes is easy - this has been asked before, please search the board. In fact, coppermine can display any multimedia file your browser is capable of displaying (i.e. you have a plugin for).

Streaming video requires special server configurations - just like Joachim stated.

RealMedia files will stream just fine from Coppermine without special server licenses or configuration. Having a streaming server helps smooth things out, but most modem connections are fast enough these days that if the compressed video file is optimized for 56K modems, they will stream just fine using HTTP.

Instead of uploading the video .rm file through Coppermine, put the .rm file online somewhere on your server. Then create a text file that contains nothing but the full (absolute) URL of the .rm file, and name it with a .ram file extension. Upload the .ram file via Coppermine. That's all you need to do. The only problem is that an unnecessary new window will open. I haven't taken the time yet, but I'm sure there's a place to put an if statement that will suppress opening a new window when the filetype is .ram.

Does anyone know where that would be offhand?

I suspect you could also stream other media by creating an HTML file with the requisite embed tags, and uploading the HTML file instead of the video file through Coppermine. The video file itself can be uploaded using FTP software.

Hope this helps!
