iZAP-Videos, Full featured videos plugin v2.0

Release Notes

  • @rogal:

    please share what you did. i would appreciate it

  • Is there a way to get it to convert over video formats like wmv and mpeg?

  • Great feature additions. However, when I edit a video in "Groups" I can no longer assign the group permissions. The only options I have are: private, friends, logged in, public. Is this a known bug?

  • @Mike:
    Supporting video conversion formats is actually depends on the codecs you have compiled with ffmpeg. And as this time we give option to admin to change ffmpeg command. So you can make changes in the command according to your need from the settings of the plugin in admin panel.
    Thanks to point it put. I will varify this and fix it. 

  • On the page displaying the video,  I get the following for embedd code:

    str_replace('"', '\'', $player), 'js' => 'onClick = this.select() READONLY'))?>

    and i have embedd code turned off.




  • you have to change line 48

                $this->syntaxString .= ' -vhook "/usr/lib/vhook/watermark.so -f /home/aleya/homes/logo.png -m 1 -t 222222" ' . escapeshellarg($this->outvideo);


    logo.png is my watermark transparent png file

  • I get " video is queue for convertion up for convertion " So the day after I checked and still get the same thing. How long it need to convert a video file ? I just uploaded a video file smaller then 1mb for testing.

  • i install this mod but i after upload see this pm


    Video is queued up for conversion.


    but check it admin in

    Queue management


    can not see video

    please help

  • @rogal

    Yes, I'm aware of the problem. The site isn't -on- www.justadults.net - we just moved servers and I haven't set a redirect to justadults.net from www.justadults.net yet. :)

    Thanks for reminding me. >.>

  • @Fusion , @Dagorath and all other guys.
    please download patch from here. Download patch.
    This is a fix related to flash player issue while embedding video.

    @Fusion, @rogal:
    Rogal, we have changed the way of parsing of ffmpeg command. That is not in the control of admin. So you will not find this code at the location you are saying. @Fusion, you can simply put this parameter in settings of izap_video plugin from your admin panel.


  • @Ken:
    There seems to me some issue with ffmpeg compilation with the required set of codecs. Are you sure, FFMPEG is working fine.
    You need to recompile atleast same set of libraries and codecs what i mentioned in the installation instructions.

  • @izap:

    1.the patch works perfectly. thankyou...

    2. would that be added to the ffmpeg convert commands to get the watermark?  could you show an example of how that should look?



  • Izap?



    Thanks for a great plug-in! This is just perfekt and I will donate when I get this working all the way. I’ve managed to install and configure this very easy…Good work from you.

    Now one thing does not work and that’s uploading videos. Actually it’s partly ok since there are thumbnails created and the embedding is working also! But the video upload halts with “Video is queued up for conversion”.

    Now I’m on a Windows XP machine running XAMPP 1.7.1 # Apache HTTPD 2.2.11 + Openssl 0.9.8i# MySQL 5.1.33# PHP 5.2.9# phpMyAdmin

    I do not get what’s wrong but this might have to do with the conversion and maybe also there is no implementation of the"suPHP" apache modul?

    I’m not shore about this but would like this to work on a Windows - XAMPP server (many people do use this combination I think).



  • @antracit:
    Sorry, You previous post was skipped from my eyes. Well, we really did not test this on XAMPP. We just setup a windows machine having XAMPP. We will do some experiements. and get back to you with some help to make it work on XAMPP.

    "suPHP" apache module. This module is won't work on windows. Actually, this needs to install on linux, unix like operating systems.

    Thanks for your support.

  • Why I get " Video is queued up for convertion" after the video file has successfully uploaded and save to the directory. I can't play the video on my site.But I can download the uploaded file again and play the video. Please Help !

  • @ izap can you explain why i have no tap vor videos in embed??

  • I am having the same "Video is queued up for conversion" issue.

    I can go into the command line and convert the video fine using the FFMPEG Convert command in the Settings panel, so I know FFMPEG is working fine.

    What else could be the issue?

  • @Dagorath how do i enable those, i couldnt find that in the documentation

  • @ draelius &  @ izap 

    This is my server ffmpeg compiled that they can installed for me.So what should I make changes on the "FFMPEG Convert command" and "FFMPEG snapshot command" to make it works ? As I mentioned before I get "Video is queued up for conversion" after uploaded.

  • @ izap @ draelius

    The server has FFMPEG installed here: /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg . Should I make any changes for PHP interpreter path e.g ?

  • @ken:
    Go to "Tools administration". click on "settings" beside"izap_video" plugin. There you will find "FFMPEG Convert command" some thing like "/usr/bin/ffmpeg -y -i [inputVideoPath] -vcodec libx264 -vpre hq  -b 300k  -bt 300k  -acodec libfaac  -ar 22050  -ab 48k  [outputVideoPath]".
    There change "/usr/bin/ffmpeg" to "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg". And do same for the "FFMPEG snapshot command". You will also find "php interpreater path". If you need, you can change that too according to your server environment.

  • @izap

    Used the patch. Still doesn't embed. It does in the edit box, then doesn't when it actually posts.

  • patch download links are not working??


We are leading elgg providers. We have implemented complex combination of applications like "elgg + elasticsearch + cloud infrastructure + comet server for active pages"
