Hi

I'm using the resource page as a video gallery, but have a problem with calling the thumbnail view and popup in my templates. when I call the flash player it works fine, but the thumbnail just gives me a white screen, I checked my php error log and this is the error.

PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function CroppedImage() on a non-object in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/site1/dataobject_manager/code/flv/FLV.php on line 272

Which is this thumbnail line

'Thumbnail' => $this->VideoThumbnail()->CroppedImage($thumb_width, $thumb_height),

Any ideas what would cause this?

Thanks in advance

You've confirmed that FFMPEG is installed and working correctly?

Nope, I have not got FFMPEG installed. I don't think the server the site will be on, Will have it. Will this be a problem? Ive converted all the videos so that they are FLV so they would not need the FFMPEG to convert them, So does this mean they still need it?

Yeah, you can't generate a thumbnail without FFMPEG. I would stick to the $Player UI rather than using the popup, because the popup requires a thumbnail.

I have found out if I manually put a jpg image thumbnail in the folder, It uses that. Is there a way so when uploading a video, It has 2 steps select video(FLV) and select Thumbnail(JPG), So that the jpeg gets saved as the same name as the video in the thumbnail folder. If its possible this would be a good alternative for people that do not have server access, like shared hosting accounts.

Thanks in advance
