Does this module support mp4?
Media Projects module can upload mp4 files, however this file type was disabled by default. This module uses *ffmpeg to convert video files on server. There are numerous mp4 codecs and our testing showed ffpmeg does not support all of them. For example, mp4 video with sound 5.1 in 48bit won’t be processed correctly by it. That's why some kinds of mp4 videos uploaded by users won’t be processed. If you need to support mp4 videos in your community let us know. We will be able to help you by using ffmpeg alternative or online video conversion service (ex. zencoder.com). *ffmpeg is a free default server tool used for video processing.
I got an error during video processing. How can I find out what's wrong?
We have added error log to the plugin. If you will have any error during video processing, you can find it by the following path: temporary/log/whmedia.log. There you will find full information about the issue. Notice, this error log shows only results of video files convertation.
I have seen some of plugin packages like this on warez forums. Why do I need to pay for them?
1. Secure code. It’s possible to add only a few extra lines of code to any mod/plug-in and it will steal your users’ personal information or change the administrator’s password. Do you really trust people who steal from others? 2. Support. If you have a problem with installation or conflict with other plugin - this will be resolved asap. 3. Free updates. You support new development by purchasing licenses. And get new features in updates for free.
What additional server setup may be required for iPad/iPhone support?
Ipad and other iOS devices don’t support Flash, that’s why videos are played with the help of browser facilities (html5). iPad/iPhone require videos to be encoded with H.264 codec. Media Projects plugin uses ffmpeg program for video conversion. Note, this codec isn’t included in standard package.
