[BETA] Flash Video (FLV) integration (v0.2.4)

Post by SaWey »

MOD Title: FLV integration
MOD Description: Attach and link flv files in your messages
MOD Version: 0.2.4
MOD Download: here
Installation Level: Easy
Installation Time: ~9 Minutes


This mod allows you to attach flv videos to your messages or link them via BBcode.
It uses the FLASH VIDEO PLAYER from jeroen wijering
and this is downloadable from:
jeroenwijering.com
(the player is also included in the package)

This player has a Creative Commons License
More info about the licencing can be found on his website:
jeroenwijering.com

[edit] Previous versions were not working as I oversaw some problems. Now everything should work fine. (don't forget to clear your board-cache when installing new versions)
[edit 2] Changed the title to be a bit more obvious.

This looks very nice! But there might be some licensing problems. I'm not sure if that license is GPL compatible... perhaps the MOD team can have a look at this? :?

I did not check the code, yet. Though, the article itself speaks books to everyone.

I was following the installation instuctions for includes/functions_posting.php where it ask you to:

Code: Select all

Find:
} 
$cat_lang = array( 
ATTACHMENT_CATEGORY_NONE => $user->lang['NO_FILE_CAT'], 
ATTACHMENT_CATEGORY_IMAGE => $user->lang['CAT_IMAGES'], 
ATTACHMENT_CATEGORY_WM => $user->lang['CAT_WM_FILES'], 
ATTACHMENT_CATEGORY_RM => $user->lang['CAT_RM_FILES'], 
ATTACHMENT_CATEGORY_FLASH => $user->lang['CAT_FLASH_FILES'], 

Code: Select all

Add After:
ATTACHMENT_CATEGORY_FLASH_VIDEO => $user->lang['CAT_FLASH_VIDEO_FILES'], 
None of this code was found within the fuctions_posting.php

I'm sorry, you should look for that code in 'includes/acp/acp_attachments.php'

I updated the package.

You have another error in your installation instructions. Where it says styles/prosilver/template/attachments.php, it should say styles/prosilver/template/attachments.html

Ah, yes, I think I copy/pasted a bit to much :)
Thanks again

for the life of me, I can't get this to work.
It looks like it's loading the file, but then all I get is a black box with a play button in the middle and it will never play the dang flv file.
Any idea?

Is it an attached flv or a linked one?
If it is linked, could you post the url?

It is an attached file uploaded in the post.
I can see it transfer the data for the flv file in a net stat monitor I have, but it just doesn't get to playing it.

I'll look into it this evening, as I have an oral examination in a few hours.
could you post a link to your post with the attachment, or pm it to me?

I had the same problem with flv integration also.
