[Experimental] Module for uploading unsupported videos
|Posted: Fri, 2010-09-24 01:42|
This module, "videos" will allow users to store unsupported video formats (avi, mpg, etc) in Gallery 3.
As these types of files are unsupported by the core gallery code, I can't guarantee that a change in Gallery won't completely break it, so use at your own risk.
This installs just like any other module -- upload the "videos" folder to you modules directory, then activate the module from the web interface.
This module contains a modified version of Gallery's "Server add" module, that allows for adding video files to an album (so you basically ftp the file to the server, then log in as an admin to add it to an album via the Add -> Add videos menu). If you've never used the server add module, you can read about it here. Users will then see a "Click here to download video" link instead of the normal flash player when viewing these videos (as Gallery's flash video player can't handle these formats).
This has been tested against Gallery 3 RC2 Git as of commit 1a0d76c43e3545771ae3, and may/may not work with anything earlier then that. Also, this has only been tested in conjunction with the NoFFMPEG module (which is probably required if your web server doesn't have FFMPEG installed). I have no idea how it'll work on web servers that actually have FFMPEG, as I can't test this.
