We are unable to get videos on our server to play correctly in the Gallery Slide Sets with lightbox. We have tried using .mp4 and .m4v videos with the H.264 video codec. In fact, the mp4 demo video that comes with the jwplayer download will not play correctly in its native state (not flash). Can we play mp4 videos natively without using the /player.swf?flashvars= fallback?
Video is not working for me either. I think you need a more detailed video tutorial to show how it works for you.
For example, I noticed that your source file contains the following statement:
Yet, you don't explicitly mention that in your video tutorial. I assume this needs to go in the header file, but since you appear to use a customized set of instructions, I notice, for example, that your theme is not versioned, I'm still figuring out where to put it.
You'll need to install jwplayer – unfortunately because of licensing I can't pre-install jwplayer.
See this page of the documentation for installing and using jw player – http://northvantage.co.uk/helpdocs/dyn/documentation.html#two
It's this part you need to look at
To play JW Player within lightboxes specify the path of your JW Player flash file. e.g.
/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/player.swf then add the video path using the flashvars variable. e.g.
So the full path looks similar to the following. (note! this is just an example – you'll need to modify to represent the paths to your own files).
Check the autoplay check option in either Gallery Slide Set or Posts → Embed Video / Timeout Options to automatically start the video.
Ok so ive uploaded the 2 files to my media section and copied the url into my image under the video url….does this look right to you
[imageeffect type="framelightbox" align="aligncenter" width="284" height="190" alt="" url="http://www.glowvideo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/front.png" videourl="/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/player.swf?flashvars=file=/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Final-Glow-Opening-Video.mov?width=600&height=400" autoplay="yes" ]
Still nothing comes up….it must be something im doing wrong.
