JWPlayer not Quicktime

Fan in action


Am I being prompted to use Quicktime to play videos in my gallery instead of just using the in-built JWPlayer (which I want to do) because of the kind of codecs I'm using? If so, what codecs should I use so that JWPlayer kicks in?

Thanks :-)

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.

Just responding as a guest, having trouble logging in to the forum right now.

I've now tried producing videos as mp4's and uploading them.

success in terms of jwplayer being prompted to play the file but no video (audio is there though)

I'm using AVS video editor 6.3 and there's quite a bit of scope for file extensions, a little bewildering for a relative novice in video production

Ive tried using a couple of the mp4 settings to produce, a load of them open up for i-phone etc

I can't see anywhere that the mp4s are aac though (as stated is preferable in the ocportal gallery tutorial), instead it says H.264 avc (Advanced Video Coding)

Is any one familiar with producing video from AVS Video Editor and optimising for ocportal galleries?

one video i uploaded without putting through avs first, as in not edited, and it was taken on an iphone or an android phone, not sure... does play fine. Actually i put that video inline in a page as an attachment and not in a gallery so i havent tried that mp4 straight from the mobile device in a gallery yet.
