Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

As far as you issue goes a quick check for compatibility in browsers for h.265 and there is only partial support in IE and Edge if there is hardware support, in other words you need onboard hardware decoder. Only Safari 11 and above has full support. No other browser supports it. This explains ever...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

That said, your utility proves useful. Here's the analysis of the file uploaded from my iPhone, and downloaded to Windows: uploaded from iphone.JPG HEVC is apparently an H.265 compression standard, a successor to AVC, on which H.264 is based. Which, is the attribute of the file copied to Windows, up...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

But for .mov's uploaded from iPhones, it only plays on the iPhone! Here's the story... You can use this to analyze both videos: https://www.videohelp.com/software/MediaInfo The context of my quote above, is with regard to my customized code, which tells the browser that it is an .mp4, whether the u...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

For the record, in Firefox on linux the are all working. Interesting! Firefox on my Windows desktop exhibits the same behavior as Chrome; (2) will not play. I suspect it has less to do with the browser, than it does with the default player for the OS. And in my case, Firefox gave me the option to d...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

It's got the same dimensions when comparing the physical copy from my iPhone to my Windows computer, as to the downloaded version from vanilla phpBB that was uploaded directly from my iPhone: Capture.JPG It's 8.5MB though! This is the size Windows File Explorer reports directly on the iPhone, and on...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

Well, here's an obvious reason why it's 8 times bigger when uploaded from my iPhone: Capture.JPG So when I email it from my iPhone to an account I read on my Windows computer, the .mov has been scaled. This must have happened at the iPhone, when it was mailed. And who knows what else it did with it....

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

For video to play in WMP you need the codec installed on the system. VLC uses it's own library of codecs independent of the system codecs. Based on what you have posted thus far the smaller video is being converted to Windows friendly codec, this would also explain the smaller file size. The one be...

Re: Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

Can you play the one uploaded by iPhone with an iPhone or other Mac device? Try using VLC to open the file on windows machine. I can play the .mov that originated on my iPhone, on my iPhone. However, it attempts to play it when I click on the download link in my uncustomized phpBB test site; it doe...

Curious .MOV upload behavior from an iOS device

I've often taken movies with my iPhone, plugged my iPhone into my Windows computer, transferred the videos (.mov format) to my computer, and uploaded to my phpBB board from there. It's only been recently, that I've actually tried to upload to board directly from my iPhone. When I do, the results are...

"Page Break" for Administrators

Something I would find useful as an administrator is the ability to "insert a page break" for certain topics, that would override the "posts per page" (PPP) count. Some of my topics can have a lot of attachments, many of which are videos that can take a long time to load. I suppose I could split pos...

Re: PHP Versions: Of horses, and carts before them

Stick with 7.0.x at the moment. I can't stick with 7.0.x at the moment, if I'm currently running PHP 5.6.39 with phpBB 3.2.1. Read my initial post. I want to know how to get there, from here. That is: If I upgrade PHP 5.6.39 to PHP 7.x, and do nothing else - does my phpBB 3.2.1 board break? Or, mus...

If I first upgrade PHP on my server to 7.2.10 - will my 3.2.1 board continue to work, until I get around to upgrading my board?
Not really fine.
Not really fine? OK. What's the recommended approach?

Re: PHP Versions: Of horses, and carts before them

Yes, i'm running phpBB on PHP 7.2.16 Do you mean to say, you are running phpBB 3.2.1 on PHP 7.2.x? It's clear to me, that later versions of phpBB are supported by PHP 7.2.x. My question, specifically, is if my current version of phpBB - 3.2.1 - will continue to work if I upgrade PHP to 7.2.x, befor...

PHP Versions: Of horses, and carts before them

I'm currently running a 3.2.1 phpBB board, PHP version 5.6.39. I plan to upgrade phpBB to 3.2.5.

If I first upgrade PHP on my server to 7.2.10 - will my 3.2.1 board continue to work, until I get around to upgrading my board?
