Re: x_movie module installation help

Runeher,

Make sure the "Thumbnails" option is set to yes. I updated this module today to fix how the size restriction is calculated and other minor bug fixes. In the next update I will redo how the images are sized and displayed.

Re: x_movie module installation help

Some websites format the image link in a way that it is impossible to figure out. If the module can't download the image, it will replace it with a dafault image. When you go to approve the video you can revisit the site, right click on the image and choose copy link location, then replace the image link the module is currently using. The module currently doesn't copy this image over but in the next update I will have it copy the image to the server. Also I will have it keep the original size and resize the image on the fly to meet the size allowed in preferences.

Re: x_movie module installation help

kevcar,

You only need this portion of the code you provided...

<embed type="video/divx" src="http://video.stage6.com/2110177/.divx" pluginspage="http://go.divx.com/plugin/download/" showpostplaybackad="false" custommode="Stage6" autoplay="false" height="480" width="640" />

Re: x_movie module installation help

hello Optikool & friends xooperos from Mexico..

I have installed version 2.5 and when I put youtube url, message, title. etc. There is a Error, The error says: URL ERROR, Its the only Error, because I already tried to upload a video from my PC and there is not problem at all, I tried to put the youtube Ej. http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=g0gjlrzPkMQ

... And also I try to put: http://www.youtube.com/v/g0gjlrzPkMQ& ... t;</param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/g0gjlrzPkMQ&rel=1 and here the problem was different, the problem result in a blank page, but not URL Error.

Also I want to tell that when I tried this second option from my administration there was not problem, the problem was only trying from my homepage like a user or like a webmaster.

As I said im Spanish, so If you have the latest version of this module please send it to me at fetresa@hotmail.com or post it here, I will translate the module into spanish and I will post the spanish language option.

Thanks in advance.
Fernando Trejo

Re: x_movie module installation help

Hi Optikool,

I entered the code as you stated, it came back no file found, but when I entered this:

http://video.stage6.com/2110177/.divx

it worked.

It seems that the movie url field won't allow the whole code in this field.

As I stated before Great Module, thanks

Re: x_movie module installation help

fernan2,

The 2.5 version is another version of this module that I don't maintain. If you would like to use my version you can get it from my website here.... http://www.optikool.com/modules/mydow ... inglefile.php?cid=2&lid=4

The current version is 2.65 however I don't believe there is a Spanish language pack. If you want to create one from the English version, I can add it to the module.

Thanks
Optikool

Re: x_movie module installation help

kevcar,

Yes if you put just the url of this movie in the url field, that would also be parsed and formatted correctly. Inserting the embed code that looks like this...

<embed type="video/divx" src="http://video.stage6.com/2110177/.divx" pluginspage="http://go.divx.com/plugin/download/" showpostplaybackad="false" custommode="Stage6" autoplay="false" height="480" width="640" />

Will allow the module to get the correct height and width of the movie so when it's resized the size ratio is maintained. But the url works too and you can set the original size manually when you go to approve the video.

Re: x_movie module installation help

Hi again Optikool...

The version that I have installed was 2.65 not 2.5 as i stated, sorry for that.

Well I have that problem that I mentioned here, There is 2 Errors that I got, URL Error and a Blank page..

1. The error says: URL ERROR, Its the only Error, because I already tried to upload a video from my PC and there is not problem at all, I tried to put the youtube Ej. http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=g0gjlrzPkMQ here is where I got the URL ERROR.

... And also I try to put: http://www.youtube.com/v/g0gjlrzPkMQ& ... t;</param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/g0gjlrzPkMQ&rel=1 and here the problem was different, the problem result in a blank page, but not URL Error, here I put this embed into the embed selection.

Also I want to tell that when I tried this second option from my administration there was not problem, the problem was only trying from my homepage like a user or like a webmaster.

Well thats the Error that I get from version 2.65, sorry for my error on the first post... Do you have some info in fixing that problem?

As I said I will translate the module into spanish so im just waiting to fix that problem but I have not idea how..

Thanks for your helping..

Regards
Fernando Trejo.

Re: x_movie module installation help

fernan2,

For your first error, remove the mx from mx.youtube.com and replace it with www (www.youtube.com). Currently the module doesn't understand mx. For your second error, you only need to put everything in the embed tag. You don't need to put the contents of the Object tag or the param tags. The module doesn't look at this information and it's being concatenated because the string you are entering is to long. It will work if you only put the embed tag.
