Okay so I have done all the hard work go ffmpeg working, sorted the videothumbnails out, and permissions etc phew....the last hurdle is this when changing the code to $VideoPopup(100x100,400x300) the thumbnail is there but when clicked the popup appears but says movie not loaded in flash. When I revert to code $Player (400,300) it plays so it is not the movie. Anyone had this issue before with videopopup??

I met this problem before. My reason of this problem was popup window could not load the 'player.swf'. And I found that Director::absoluteURL('dataobject_manager/code/flv/shadowbox/libraries/mediaplayer/player.swf'); is wrong in FLV.php. Just copy player.swf to 'dataobject_manager/code/flv/shadowbox/libraries/mediaplayer/" this folder. This problem was fixex.

Hope this can help.

Excellent kingo just the trick...why it has the wrong path I don't know anyway it worked.... Only one more issue which is why flv files crash with getimagesize error on gd.php. Ahhh why is it not easy?
