iZAP-Videos, Full featured videos plugin v3.55b

Release Notes

How do we planned stability in this version

In this version we have removed complex video conversion preset command and use simple ffmpeg command "ffmpeg -y -i [inputfile] [outfile]". I setup a testing lenny instance of a server. than simply install ffmpeg using lenny package manager. And setup elgg with izap_videos. And it was working perfectly there was not any issue. Please post your feedback. And if it works for you. than post your server environment and give us one recommendation. As we will reach to the recommendation of 20. We will change this beta release to stable one.
