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
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?
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.
