The proc_open function is a safer and more secure way to run shell commands and it will help with future enhancements such as displaying video conversion progress. But if it's not working on your system maybe there should be a flag to set how the command is run.
Well it's working if using absolute path, but using relative path, it can't find the file, it said no directory/file found.. I will also try it on linux.. It's been great uncle cheese.. hey do you know how to remove that jwplayer logo at the swf player?
Ah i see.. Do you know if there is a free player without the logo on it? And is it possible we switch it using that player.. Sorry if i'm asking too much, just i thought it would be cool to have the player without the logo :)
Just to clarify here: The JW FLV Player is licensed under creative commons 3.0, noncommercial (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/). You would violate the license, when you use this player for commercial use.
As an alternative, you could try the FlowPlayer (http://flowplayer.org/index.html) which has also a free version, licensed under GPL (remains free for commercial use).
