we are currently using Simple Audio Video Embedded 5.1.2 , but for some strange reason it just don`t cut it anymore as to playing .mov file`s,
We get allot of our member`s uploading .mov files now that they want to see displayed on the forum instead of a downloaded file to watch on windows player,

any idea`s anyone as to whats the best player to use now to do this.

sorry for the edit but i forgot to add we are using 2.0.19

 :)

Hmm, will take a look with Simple Audio Video Embedder
I think I can change it to video tag https://stackoverflow.com/questions/31380695/how-to-open-mov-format-video-in-html-video-tag Which should be a better experience.

That would be great vbgamer45 , Oh by the way your thumbs up mod that we bought is fantastic & the support you give to different versions when we was testing to upgrade to 2.1 was fantastic.

 ;)

Give this a try. May not work with all .mov files uninstall old version install new version

Seems to work but for some reason i cannot adjust the size of the movie player to make it smaller it just goes full size, But the utube video has adjusted to the correct size.

vbgamer45

It should go based on the height/width settings that you have under the media settings in the mod.

I`m wondering if it`s conflicting with tinyportal we have installed, the movie player is much bigger than the utube player,...infact its way to big.


vbgamer45

I would view the html on the page and see what the height/width of the video html tag are set to

Or if there is a css conflict that is overriding the height/width settings.

Give us a clue as to where and what i am looking for so i can check please :)


vbgamer45

View the html source of the the page where the video is played.  Or if you know use the developer tools on your browser to inspect the video element.
Or you can just link the page here.

Just noticed it the uploaded movie files that go way to large and not the linked movie files, So its like its not resizing the attached movie files everything else is to size and works fine.

vbgamer45

Attached as an attachment?

yes as an attachment file to upload a full movie file, it don`t seem to resize the file to size for easier viewing on the screen.


vbgamer45

There should be settings for that located in a different area.

Admin -> Attachments and Avatars -> Attachment Settings

Width of Audio Player element
NOTE: Set to 0 for browser default
Width of Video Player element
NOTE: Set to 0 for browser default
