"Gallery" of Videos, Showing same image for all thumbs.

Hey there.

Not sure how or why this is happening, but for a gallery-style page of videos using the VideoPopup method (tested with others, $Player, etc), the thumbnails are the same. Viewing the source of output page shows that they reference the same .jpg for the thumb.

Here's what information I 'think' you need:

Running latest DataObjectManager (Build Date: 2011-04-01)


class VideoPage extends Page
static $has_many = array (
'Videos' => 'Video'

public function getCMSFields()
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Videos", new FileDataObjectManager(
array('Title' => 'Title', 'Description' => 'Description'),
new FieldSet(
new TextField('Title'),
new TextareaField('Description')
return $fields;

class VideoPage_Controller extends Page_Controller



class Video extends DataObject
static $db = array (
'Title' => 'Varchar(100)',
'Description' => 'Text'

static $has_one = array (
// Make sure this comes first
'VideoPage' => 'VideoPage',
'Video' => 'FLV'



<% control Videos %>

<div class="resource" style="padding: 0 6px 0 25px; width:200px;">
<% control Video %>
<% end_control %>
<div class="description">

<% end_control %>

In this case the Titles are different, the Descriptions are different and once clicked, the video that plays is different (all good and expected) -- just the thumbnail is the same across the board.

The kicker: In assets/video_thumbnails/ all the files are created properly, however the images on the parsed page are pointing to the _resampled directory, and pulling the same-named file, in this case 'croppedimage260152-.jpg' ...

It appears that the re-sampling process is truncating the file-names to the same name, so the last video file I upload gets turned into the thumbnail that they all end up using.

Bug? File-naming issues?

Any thoughts on the matter would be great.

Gallery doesn't even work for me. Just causes an Error 500 on the server.
