suico,

I have uploaded a newer version of x_movie to my site a few minutes ago. This modules has a main index menu that will give you information from your php.ini file. Check to make sure your file isn't larger then the max post and max upload size limit.

Thanks optikool , I am at my job now and can t test it right away , but when i arrive home I'll do. Though i can avance i have changed the settings in php.ini to 100MB so I don't think it is this. And the upload works as the file goes to the directory in my comp. Something else maybe?

suico,

When you get home, download the modules again and run update. If you still get an error, then add this code to line 143 on x_movie/index.php... echo "url: $url<br>\n"; and past the result in this forum. Also are you running this website on a Windows Server or Unix/Linux server?

suico,

I haven't tested this module on a Windows server but you will definitely need the helper files for the getid3 function to work. I will need to set up at test machine so I can add the code needed for this module to work on a Windows server. I should have a fix sometime next week.

Re: x_movie module installation help

optikool, thanks for what you have so far completed. It works great for FLV files located on my own server. So far, no luck with SWF, and MOV files apparently don't stream, they transfer totally before playing. If you're aware of the "8-second rule," you know why this is not a good thing. I am uploading an AVI and an MPEG right now to see how those go.

The site ishttp://castle-anthrax.us/ and no registration is required at the moment. I'm running LAMP.

MorelyDotes,

I had some issues with swf and mov files and I think I accidentally skipped over them as a result. I will look at that section of code again and make sure they are added. I believe they should be streamable, I will let you know in a couple of days.

MorelyDotes,

I looked into the mov problem you were having and tried to simulate it. The problem is the movies is being cached before it is played even though it's on the same server. You need to check the file you uploaded and find out where the movie header is stored.. You are looking for moov string. A properly formatted moov string is at the beginning of the movie so that it starts right away.. but the movie could also be formatted in a way that the moov string is at the end, so the movie must be downloaded first. I did a test with a mov file from apples web sitehttp://images.apple.com/movies/weinstein/the_last_legion/the_last_legion-h.ref.mov and it streamed just fine, not surprised. You can read more information about mov files here...http://developer.apple.com/documentation/QuickTime/Conceptual/QTScripting_HTML/QTScripting_HTML_Document/chapter_1000_section_6.html

I'm still looking into the swf problem. Unfortunately I don't have any swf files so I will need to find one first or figure out how to create one.

MorelyDotes,

I did some more testing with the mov files I was creating using Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 with no luck. Finally I got a hold of Apple Quicktime Pro 2.7 and resaved my mov as a self contained movie and uploaded that. It streams just fine. Here is the movie I created...http://www.optikool.com/modules/x_movie/x_movie_view.php?cid=3&lid=19

I also looked into the swf issue. I have one I created working here...http://www.optikool.com/modules/x_movie/x_movie_view.php?cid=3&lid=20

Did you also upload the flv file that goes with the swf? It must be located in the same path you specified in contentPath Variable parameter of you fla before you exported the movie.
