I think the Video thumbnails arent displaying because you haven't got FFMEPG-PHP installed on your server. FFMEPG goes through the video you upload and it then grabs a shot from one of the frames that you specify and that is what is then available to you as a thumbnail.

He's using coda ( http://www.panic.com/coda/ ). A web development IDE for the Mac OS X. From what i have seen, it not really not that great especially from the intellisense side of things but hey that 's just my opinion.... lots of people like it.

One of the best and really powerful, cross-platform, free and open source web dev IDE i would recommend is called Aptana ( http://aptana.com ).. It's got great intellesene and many other awesome features and code development for many other languages (PHP, Ruby on Rails, Python etc) and platforms (Nokia and IPhone) are available as free plugins.

The only downside is that it tends to be heavy on memory so make sure that you have an extra 350MB of RAM. :)

Is FFMPEG installed? You can check by adding FLV::echo_ffmpeg_test() in your _config.php.

Ahh.. L Boy beat me to it. :)

Yeah, I use Coda.. Used to be kind of luke warm on it, but ever since they've integrated SVN I've been really happy.

I love Aptana, but if I'm not mistaken, it's Windows only, correct?

Coda is OSX only, BTW.

This looks amazing! I'm a front end guy and I'm just sort of stumbling my way into coding so I'm having trouble getting started on making the files to make video work. I'll post lots of questions I'm sure :p

On an unrelated note, can you export your coda text themes and post a link? I've been trying to find something easy to read, and yours looks terrific!

Haha.. Funny, I actually can't take credit for those colors. A co-worker had them set up, and when I saw them, I had the same reaction and asked for an export, which I have now ported over to three different Coda installations. Background color is #222, text color #ddd. Remember to add .ss as a valid extension for PHP-HTML. Can't attach files to a reply, so I'll post in a new thread.

Remember to test your FFMPEG compliance with FLV::echo_ffmpeg_test();

Looks like this forum doesn't allow file attachments. Try this:

Sweet, thanks for the theme :)

As for that, I'm not even close to figuring out how I do that. Like I said, I'm a front end guy. I know photoshop like the back of my hand, I know CSS & HTML really well, but php, and silverstripe coding is pretty new and scary to me. :p

When I test for ffmpeg in the _config.php file I see the report that says that it is not installed. However when I type ffmpeg from the command line I get a list of all the commands available to the program. I am using Leopard Server on an Intel Xserve so maybe I don't have it installed correctly.

Does anyone know how to properly install ffmpeg on OSX Server?
