Re: x_movie module installation help

Update, first a correction to my previous posts. I have changed the name of my website, so you will find the files at http://thehobbyguy.tv

http://eflyfun.com will be available, but the DNS records are slow to update.

http://thehobbyguy.tv

Also, I have coresponded with the author of X_Movie and he informs me that he is running 2.1 on his site. 2.1 will include the google option and the popup option. IN addition I have sent him the language pack to include in the release.

After looking at how the embeds are being handled, I would like to actually come up with a better resolution to this. WordPress has a nice way to handle Google and YouTube video. It is closer to how you embed a URL in this post. Using [] brackets with url= except they use googlevideo=

I would love to have a class that interprets googlevideo= or yourtube= or any embed=

I believe this could be more flexible.

Any thoughts?

Re: x_movie module installation help

Is there a way to allow this module to play divx files?

Mpg and avi files are too large, so can't place them on the server.

BTW, does anyone know a good video module for xoops, something like youtube style module?

Re: x_movie module installation help

Im using xfsection to handle it. I just changed the language section to say "video" rather than article. Works perfect and has comments, voting and views

XFSection as Video Module Here

Re: x_movie module installation help

Based on n01un0's comment above, I also decided to try xfsection for displaying my movies. I had been using smartmedia before, but found that it took alot of customisation to make things look like I wanted. Check out how I used xfsection here to display movies instead of articles, as n01un0 did. Most of the customisation involves changing the language file. If you just want to show embedded movie url on your site, this module does the trick.

Check it out here.

That warning is due to a failure in the uninstall process.

You can erase that table via your DB admin (eg. phpmyadmin)

See you
