Can't upload a movie

Post by simibill »

I keep getting "file extension wmv not allowed" but it is in the list of acceptable extensions. What's the problem?

Go into manage extension groups and edit the windows media and select what forums you want and and change the settings to what you want.

Thanks, I can now upload movie files, but I do not get the video displayed in the post. The audio in the video plays, but no video. What am I doing wrong?

If you post the EXACT url to your movie you will get a click-able link.

Code: Select all

[url=http://your_url/your_movie.wmv]movie_title[/url]
If you want to embed it you would need a custom BBCode.

Edit: I just found this custom BBCode:

BBCode usage

Code: Select all

[wmv]{URL}[/wmv]
HTML replacement

Code: Select all

<div align="center"><embed src="{URL}" width="320" height="240" autostart="0" showcontrols="1" type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/"> </embed></div>
Help line

Code: Select all

[wmv]link[/wmv]

I can't view that clip, guests aren't authorised to view or play it. The BBCode works, I've tried it, there must be something at your end that's stopping it, you might try asking your host? In the meantime can you post the EXACT url of the movie clip you want to play please?

Edit: Upload the wmv as an attachment in a post and check that the CHMOD value for your /files folder is set to 755, attached files go in the /files folder. If everything is ok the movie should run.
