Make sure you have FFMPEG installed.

FLV::echo_ffmpeg_test();

Negative. I'll figure out how to install that on a Unix box. Did you see my earlier post? I have the $Player working, but $VideoThumbnail returns empty, and $VideoPopup returns an error...

Yeah, cause VideoPopup requires a thumbnail, which requires FFMPEG. :(

Yes, but FLV::echo_ffmpeg_test(); returns True on this machine (my local). What about the $VideoThumbnail being blank? This is way more important for me right now.

FFMPEG is now installed on both boxes, and still no $VideoThumbnail and error from $VideoPopup. There's gotta be something else going on there...

Check dataobject_manager/flv/ffmpeg_log.txt for a list of all the FFMPEG commands that have been executed. The thumbnail commands begin with "ffmpeg -y -i."

Try running some of those at your command line and see if there are any errors being thrown.

Also, check the markup to see if any img tag is being drawn for the video thumbnail and track down that image. The images are stored in your File table with the Title flv_thumb_123 where 123 is the ID of the FLV file.

There is no image tag being written. Nothing is written. The thumbs exist in the File table, complete with Paths, but do not Physically exist. Nothing is ever created in the video_thumbnails folder. Ever seen this one?
