The vid should make things clearer

BAH, HUMBUG!

I 'created' a WMV vid to explain the problem, but it appears that media files cannot be uploaded as attachments any longer on this forum. All you get is a little 'Media' text entry, like so … !!

edit: For IE users …

Media


The problem I wished to report is that the block holding the 'Website Activity' module in the Admin Zone refuses to update or show any pages other than the last one. Clearing caches, doesn't help!




2nd attempt: (after Chris suggested mp4 format)

edit: For ALL others …

Thanks, will be fixed, as will the attachments on certain browsers.

Thanks, Chris.

I see your 'edit' to the post, and Brian's comment intrigued me, because I still couldn't view the vid.

So I fired up IE9, and voilá, there it was!

I guess WMV is a proprietary M$ extension so IE doesn't have a problem. The others that I test against, FF, Chrome & Opera won't display, which is what I believe you are looking into just now?

Who would consciously WANT to be a developer … ??

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

lol. Well what I have done is I have fed through the video's mime type to the <object> tag, so the browser has a better chance of choosing a correct plugin when it falls back to not having IE's WMP ActiveX plugin. But yeah, doesn't guarantee it'll play. On my Mac I have "Flip2Mac" installed which allows Quicktime to play them, so your video works here now for me. x264 videos (mp4 files) are the best as in v6 it can play via both Flash and via browser plugins (if the browse supports them, Safari and IE9 will, Chrome and Firefox probably only will if a specific MS plugin is installed because those guys don't wanna pay license fees to the MPEG consortium).
It is indeed a huge mess.

Nothing like flogging a deceased equine, BUT …..
  • irritated by this 'plugin' mismatch I did a bit more research
  • all the information available on the web indicates that the 'Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin' is the answer to this problem
  • 'installed' it MANY times without it making a blind bit of difference to my viewing pleasure … !!!
THEN THE PENNY DROPPED …

I am using FF 4.0beta10, and each installation 'updated' the plugin in my FF 3.6.15 which I haven't as yet uninstalled. Bummer! Further investigation showed ANOTHER problem with using the beta - there is no 'plugins' folder.

So, created a 'plugins' folder in the beta installation, copied the 'np-mswmp.dll' file to the new folder and, voilá, (my version of) FF 4.0beta10 now has the WMP plugin working fine and displaying all M$ proprietary extensions without a whinge!

Better than that - all the other browsers are doing the same; presumably sipping from the same font of all things 'Mozilla'?

Success!

I was a bit quick to close this thread as 'RESOLVED'. I am still trying to figure out why the 'Website Activity' block is reluctant to respond.

Any ideas?

It's an ocPortal bug with the block's cacheing, will be fixed in next release. You can use the action log under 'Audit' instead though.
