Got some issues with ocPortal setup

Hi guys,
Thanks for letting me use this great piece of software, i got some problems tho, i tried uploading some flv files, which wont play it just show me a white screen, also when i upload mp3 files it does not show play time, and if i open slideshow it will switch every 5 seconds to a new mp3 or movie.
another problem is with the download module, when i try and download something by clicking on 'download now' button it gives me the anti-leech error, but when i click on the 'more info' button and then on download it lets me download perfectly fine, could you also please give me some explenation on how to work with the ffmpeg and ocportal, i bought ffmpeg + php extensions for ocportal for about 40 euro's for on my VPS server.
any help would be appreciated thanks
kind regards
The Ganjah

flv blank screen - screenshot please, there are different kinds of 'blank' so we need more info

slideshow 5 seconds - yes this is what the slideshow feature is for

download problem - this is a bug someone found recently, View topic: Leeching of attachments - ocPortal

ffmpeg - answered this one to you by email but if it doesn't work I'd be happy to debug on your server, you'll need to send me FTP access though.

p.s. Splitting up your questions into different topics would be better in the future as this topic is likely going to get quite convoluted as different people reply to different points. But that's just a note for future questions.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
