iZAP-Videos, Full featured videos plugin v2.0

Release Notes

  • Well it seems ok, maybe that file that stayed slept at queue was wrong.

  • When using the 'custom index' plugin, I can locate the "latest files', 'latest bookmarks' in any order by editing the custom index layout.

    If I enable the izap video plugin, it setups as the first displayed Index_Box under the
                echo elgg_view("index/righthandside"); So, my question is how can I move this under echo elgg_view("index/lefthandside") ?  I think it may be in the customindexVideos.php that I would make an edit, but I'm not sure what edit that would be?

    Your help is appreciated.

  • just noticed that in internet explorer my onserver videos dont show up or play in the profile widget..

    any suggestions?

  • @Fusion - have noticed the same in IE 6.0. Researching a fix.

  • Hi,

    i can't see the "settings" for the plugin - where is it ???

  • If you are logged in as 'admin' and you are watching someone's else '_his' video, in the left menu you have links '_his videos', '_videos of _his friends, 'all videos', but also a link 'add a new video'. If you click it and you add a video, it will be under '_his' videos and not under 'admin's videos', although this apears in the river and anywhere else like 'video added by admin'; if you go in your (admin's) videos, you don't see it, but '_he' sees it under '_his' videos. Anyone else experienced this, that seems to be a bug ?

  • Hi Guys,

    Any idea why I would be receiving this error when I am trying to upload an avi?

    "There was an error while one of the user was trying to upload the
    video.Error: Preset file not found"

    Would it be because I have yet to install ffmpeg in php?

    Thanks

  • Hi Guys,

    I've just installed this and most of this works great but for thumbnails.

    Am I right to assume, thumbnails are created for uploads too?

    Thanks in advance

     

  • Hello, I am not able to insert "youtube/vimeo" videos into blog posts, groups, etc. When I click on the iZap tab and chose the video I see the embed code when I click on the HTML button on the tinymce. The code looks just like any youtube embed code... so I dont see how that may work as elgg strips all of the HTML.

    Do I have to change that setting? Is that how it works?

    Thanks in advance!

  • @Yakito:
    This is due to the default plugin "htmlawed" available in elgg 1.6. Disable this and try this again. Right now izap_videos plugin is competible with elgg 1.5. We are working to make it work for 1.6. We planned to release new updates late in this month.
    Thanks

  • IZAP is great! both plugin and developer;) I am wondering if there is a way to resize the playerwindow in the profile widget?

  • I have a problem,

    i extracted a example list of youtube videos:
    http://de.pastebin.ca/1561293

    can i bulk insert them into izap_video? The real file includes about 25.000 videos.

    it would be very very good to use file upload to import this lists and / or to autoimport rss feeds :D

  •

  • hi,

    btw: where are the links stored? (which table?). it would be possible to delte them with sql querries if i would know where :D

  • ok so somehow when i enabled this it took off the username box out of the login page! now no one can input thier usernames, WTF :@

     

    anyone got any idea on how to fix this!?

  • @iZAP - Great plugin guys! Thank you all!

    (Now for the problems!!)

    Embedding YouTube etc... works fine (thanks again!) however it's the onserver uploading option currently giving me a headache!

    We are running Elgg 1.5 on a Windows 2008 VPS with PHP 5.2.6 running under Apache using WAMP, I already have ffmpeg compiled and installed, which was working fine on our Elgg 0.9 setup. Our Elgg 1.5 setup IS in a subdirectiory currently until we're ready to upgrade...

    ffmpeg was compiled with the following extra libraries:

    Extra libraries included:
    x264 SVN r1026
        http://developers.videolan.org/x264.html
    libfaac 1.26
        http://www.audiocoding.com/
    libfaad2 2.6.1
        http://www.audiocoding.com/
    libmp3lame 3.98-2
        http://www.mp3dev.org/
    libvorbis 1.2
        http://www.xiph.org/
    libtheora 1.0
        http://www.xiph.org/
    xvidcore cvs 13/11
        http://www.xvid.org/
    libgsm 1.0.12

    pthreads-win32 2.8.0
        ftp://sources.redhat.com/pub/pthreads-win32

    Now, I was hoping to be able to use this version of ffmpeg, but when an Mp4 file is uploaded it just sits in the queue and doesn't get converted.

    I have correctly set all paths to PHP and ffmpeg in config and still this doesn't seem to want to play!!

    I have found this error in the Apache error log:

    I can see the uploaded file on our server, and the png thumbnail is being generated fine, so I'm thinking we are about 95% of the way there (Thanks to your hard work!) but I noted that there is a Windows specific patch waiting to be released?

    And all links to this patch seem to be broken?

    Please help!

    (We are another Elgg user who would like to donate as well, if we can get this working!)

  • UPDATE:

    (I had a couple of dumbass bugs in my path info, oops!)

    Now Apache throws this:

    @izap, loving your work - thanks.

    I have two issues, thought I'd let you know before you finish the update.

    1) As an earlier person posted but I did not notice a response; I am using Elgg 1.6 and whenever I use the embed function I get an error message saying "Please provide the embed code"

    2) The tinymce boxes are super small and I cannot resize them. When I first installed they were fine but now one by one and user by user they are all becoming so small I can only see the top of what I am typing. When I roll over the lower right hand corner to resize them they will not move.

  • I had an error posting and then all that garbage showed up at the top - no way to edit?

    Third problem I forget to mention - I cannot install the tinymce or tinymce_3_2_6; when I do I get an error message saying tinymceis a misconfigured plugin.

  • thanks izap for a great plugin / tool.

    how about a bookmarket which site members can use to make video sharing even easier?

     

  • I'm running elgg 1.6.0 with no issues except the crome browser keeps trying to load more thumbnails.Do you have a 1.6 coming out anytime soon?

    Jeff

  • best video plugin!

    enhancement requests: :-)

    - any plans to integrade ads instream capabilities into the on server videos?

    - when uploading a video to a group, the uploader does not have the video within his portfolio under my videos.

    awaiting your next version! thanks very much for your efforts!
