Many thanks again Uncle Cheese.

That's just what I needed. Your advice is appreciated again.

A possible client has asked if they can set the size of the video window via the cms admin.
I'm not sure where the best place to start is. Is this something that can be done?

It's not that important if it's over complicated

Hi again.
Another question. The video page works great for me, however i'd like to add multiple video to a page in a similar fashion to the image gallery.
Is there any code/method to be able to acheive this without massive re-programming?

Hello UncleCheese! Thank you for your efforts and beautiful modules you've done!

I'd like to ask for a little help, and to offer my little help as well =)
/ I'm an absoulte beginner, so what extends and decorates what - is a nightmare for me so far /

Problem: I get a tab 'Videos' only in a page type 'Video page'. And your screencasts, along with the code samples I see, make me think, that that tab should be present in all page types.

Question: how do I make it present in all page types?
I'd like to offer you translation of your modules into russian/ukrainian. That's just to do something in turn=)

BTW: I have comments/suggestions on how to amend Docs for DataObjectManager Module. Because this thread helped me more, than the original Doc.

Just move the code to the Page class.

SilverStripe tips, tutorials, screencasts and more:

UncleCheese, I see that 'Page class' is in \mysite\code\Page.php. But what code to move, and where? From video.php/videopage.php/both? I was trying to move from videopage.php to Page.php, inside function 'class Page extends SiteTree {}'
I've made many attempts, but failed, it took me days now(((
Or just pls explain the logic, this could also help immensely =) Because I 'd like to add your ImageGallery to other page types, and the problem is the same there.

Can anyone let me know if ffmpeg is requried for VideoThumbnail() and VideoPopup() function? Search shows, that ffmpeg IS requried for VideoThumbnail(). And IMO, FFMPEG is also required for VideoPopup(), UncleCheese called this function a 'Magic feature' in his video, hinting that it does a couple of things at a time (including the first, 'VideoThumbnail()')

UncleCheese's Video on FFMPEG is here :
