Uploading other video file than flv fails

I am having a problem uploading any other video file than an flv. FFMPeg is installed, and FLV files upload and generate thumbnails fine.

I have tried the debug on handleswfupload() and it returns false even on the first test

if(isset($_FILES['swfupload_file']) && !empty($_FILES['swfupload_file']))

which suggests nothing is even getting set in the file field.

Is there something in the JavaScript test that is nullifying this field if it is not an FLV?

I have the line


in my getCMSFields, and have tried mpg and mp4 file types, all under the allowed PHP upload limit.

Any ideas?

Got a bit further on this. Increasing max_post_size in php.ini did the trick, but now I'm getting it hanging when it says 'processing...' at the end of the upload progress. If I abort, it still seems to have managed to get it into the system, but it doesnt trigger an upload success for some reason.

You've confirmed that FFMPEG is installed and working? Check your ffmpeg_log.txt file to see what commands are being run.

hi adesweb, did you solve your problem? Have you ever tried to use uploadify together with ffmpeg?
