  • I've installed izap and activated the plugin but, I get the error message "invalid video format" when attempting to upload a video to my server. The video format is .m4v but, I was under the impression that it would be converted to flv. I am new at this so it is likely that I'm overlooking the obvious.

  • Seems to be proving difficult to obtain a youtube developer key, any chance of a little help with this plz? ie. a bit of a walkthrough?

  • Hey Vextah,

    This video walkthrough will help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vH2eZAM30s 

    Probably you have to have an app at google first. On behalf of that app you can create a developer key. It's basically the API key listed under 'API Access', the 'Simple API Access' box. https://console.developers.google.com/project

    Make sure you have activated Google+ Api 

    NOTE: In the video, if the Google API is updated you may find the Layout a little bit different. Probably the links may be displaced. 

  • Hii,I am getting problem while uploading a video from both on- server and off server.
    When I checked for server info it is showing path for php interpreter not found...exec() fail and ffmpg fail


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