Issues with CVG Ver 1.8 (95 posts)

    As stated in the previous post in this thread, could you check if your database tables for CVG are updated properly?

    As far as I can tell, the database records look fine. Since I didn't have much invested in this (yet ;), I completely removed the plugin and drop the tables from the database. Then I installed a fresh copy of the plugin. I uploaded a single video to a gallery and the Scan Gallery Folder functioned properly. I uploaded a second video, hit the button and then nothing happened. I think this was the issue I was running into the first time, since I was trying to add additional videos to an existing gallery.

    Also, I happened to notice under the overview the following:

    Operating System : Linux (32 Bit)
    Server : LiteSpeed
    MySQL Version : 5.0.96-community-log
    PHP Version : 5.2.17
    PHP Max Upload Size : 100MB
    FFMPEG : Not Installed
    [Note: Preview images for uploaded videos will not be created automatically using FFMPEG. Manually upload preview images for videos.]
    PHP extension SimpleXML : Enabled
    PHP setting allow_url_fopen : Enabled

    Notice the warning about FFMPEG, yet:

    server [~]# which ffmpeg
    /usr/bin/ffmpeg

    Let me know how else I can help. Thanks!

    Just to be sure this wasn't an issue with the particular video I was trying to add, I went through the complete reinstall again and then added second video first this time. The Scan Video Gallery recognized it just fine. I then added another video (that loaded just fine in my previous test) and the Scan Video Gallery button again did nothing.

    Can you confirm if this is the issue you faced? Assuming there is no issue in db schema.

    1. Created a gallery through admin panel.
    2. FTPed first video into gallery folder. Did scan gallery from Admin panel for that gallery. Video added successfully.
    3. FTPed second video into gallery folder. Did scan gallery from admin panel for that gallery. Video not added successfully.

    Correct, that is precisely what I experienced. First video added successfully, regardless of which of the two videos I tried first. The second one would not.

    Hello!

    My player is showing fine in almost all browsers, except Firefox mac showing nothing at all. Any hints?

    I am seeing the same issues. Another developer set this up originally. Once it was updated I got a message that it failed to find galleries. I went in checked the galleries and OKed it. Now all of the thumbnail links are missing. How do I reconnect this? When I go to attach media it does nothing - the choose media pulldown has no options.

    I have the galleries now "found" and showing up but the thumbnails (manually generated as we're on a shared server so ffmpeg is not allowed) which were manual are no longer found.

    Wish I hadn't updated. Reading through here it seems unstable.

    How do I fix this without recreating all of the galleries?

    I deleted my test gallery through the management interface, created a new gallery, and then uploaded two videos into the new gallery. Clicking on the Scan button successfully loaded both of them into the gallery.

    On the ffmpeg front, I located the section of the interface where I could specify a path. When I found it, I was amazed to discover it appears to have had a default Macintosh path or somehow picked up the path to the binary on my client??? Regardless, ffmpeg is now detected and working fine, once I fixed the path.

    The FFMPEG path is set to default in settings page as an example. Each server will have a different path which need to be provided. W.r.t scan functionality, I was able to scan both the videos correctly. I hope your issues are resolved now.

    There is no issue related with existing thumbnails with 1.8ver. The media upload tab is for adding medias you added into WP media section. If you have updated 1.7 to 1.8 and having any issues seeing the gallery, run the 2 database queries mentioned in this thread.

    Installed version 1.8 and when I'm logged in as admin and select one of my setting such as manage, overview, etc it doesn't display any setting except for the add gallery/ videos settings?? Any suggestions??

    The FFMPEG issue is resolved (it was a non-issue), but I still can't get the scan to work properly. The initial scan works fine, regardless of how many videos are in the gallery, but after the initial scan, it can no longer find any new videos. I'd love to figure out what's going on, please let me know how I can help debug. Thanks!

    Praveen,

    I've found a workaround for the scan issue and perhaps it will give you a clue. If I've previously loaded videos into my gallery and then hit the scan button, nothing happens. However, if I then tell my browser to reload the page, it pops up a window asking me whether I want to resend the data (warning me that it will repeat the action, etc.) I do this and the scan happens the second time around!

    Actually, this trick works in two of the three browsers I tried (Firefox & Chrome), but didn't appear to work in Safari.

    Hi Praveen,

    Since I did the update to 1.8 I have this error and none of my video gallery are showing.

    Warning: opendir(/home/xxxxxxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/uploads/video-gallery/Comp├ętitions) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/xxxxxxxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/cool-video-gallery/lib/core.php on line 1357
    (xxxxxxxxxxxx is not the real folder name... obviously!)

    Update: I have checked the DB and the wp_cvg_videos was missing the 'exclude' and the 'video_title' columns so I created them with the info you supplied on previous post. Now my video are showing and are working fine but I'm still getting the same error message. (http://www.karatesthubert.com/videos/).

    I did reinstall the plugin but still get the same problem, at least now my videos are showing :-)

    Here is the content of each table, maybe there is still something missing??

    I have added a list videos, but after completing the first video, the next video does not play. Help please

    I solved the problem myself! Just to share the code

    I added

    jwplayer("<?php echo 'mediaplayer_gallery_'.$gallery_id; ?>").onComplete(function()
    				{
    					jwplayer("<?php echo 'mediaplayer_gallery_'.$gallery_id; ?>").playlistNext();
    				});

    into the playlist script area, making it look like this

    jQuery(document).ready(function(){
    				jwplayer("<?php echo 'mediaplayer_gallery_'.$gallery_id; ?>").setup({
    					'name': "<?php echo 'playerID_Gallery'.$gallery_id;?>",
    					'flashplayer': "<?php echo $this->plugin_url . "cvg-player/" . $player_swf; ?>",
        					'id': "<?php echo 'playerID_Gallery'.$gallery_id; ?>",
        					'playlistfile': "<?php echo $playlist_xml; ?>",
        					'height': "<?php echo $full_player_height; ?>",
    					'width': parseInt(<?php echo $full_player_width; ?>),
    					'playlist.position': "<?php echo $options_player['cvgplayer_playlist']; ?>",
    					'playlist.size': parseInt(<?php echo $panel_width; ?>),
    					'autostart': "<?php echo $autoplay; ?>",
    					'controlbar': "<?php echo $options_player['cvgplayer_controlbar']; ?>",
    					'volume': "<?php echo $options_player['cvgplayer_volume']; ?>",
    					'mute': "<?php echo $mute; ?>",
    					'stretching': "<?php echo $options_player['cvgplayer_stretching']; ?>",
    					'skin': "<?php echo $this->video_player_url . 'skins/' . $options_player['cvgplayer_skin'] . '-skin/' . $options_player['cvgplayer_skin']  . '.xml' ?>"
    				});
    
    				jwplayer("<?php echo 'mediaplayer_gallery_'.$gallery_id; ?>").onComplete(function()
    				{
    					jwplayer("<?php echo 'mediaplayer_gallery_'.$gallery_id; ?>").playlistNext();
    				});
    			});

    Also want to say thanks for the great plugin, hope you can include this piece of code in your next version

    Hi there

    The plugin interface seems a very nice one but I still haven't successfully upload anything yet.

    I downloaded the latest version today. I typed in the Youtube IDs and selected the gallery where the videos need to go but when I hit add videos nothing happened?? Seems like I can create gallery but cant upload videos. Does this make any sense to you?

    Do I need to do anything to configure the plugin first? Or something has blocked my video upload?

    Many thanks
    Yayu

    I installed this plugin and it worked great on individual pages of my website but when i entered the shortcode in the header section, it just displays the code as it is. What can be the issue?

    I was using Google Chrome browser I think that has cause the issue. Now I'm using the Firefox then it works fine. Firefox shows the different video types as tabs across the top of the add gallery / video page, Chrome lists them down the page and refuses to act when the add video button is pressed.

    Maybe the plugin author needs to have a look at this problem.

    @toonatwordpress and others who get warning: "exec() has been disabled for security reasons in wp-content/plugins/cool-video-gallery/lib/core.php on line 1406"

    Sometimes you cannot get exec enabled and if you only use Youtube videos it's not even necessary.

    Temporary workaround is to edit the function ffmpegcommandExists() to return always false. The correct solution, however, is to check whether exec is disabled or not. This might not be so easy in PHP at all but Mr. Rajan could consider it.

    It is working fine in Chrome browser of Mac OS. May be some other plugin scripts is causing the issue. Try disabling all other plugins.

    I have just installed the plugin, and created a gallery and uploaded a video.

    Audio plays, but the video does not.

    The uploaded file is a .MOV file of about 25Mb and it can be seen here:

    Can you tell me why the video does not play?

    Videos should be in proper encoded format for JW Player. Refer JW Player documentation for more details on video formats.

    I am having a conflict with the fancybox from my theme, and the fancybox from cool video gallery.

    Please advise how I can disable the fancybox in cool video gallery. I have version 1.8

    I looked in cool-video-gallery.php and line 829-831 are:

    'id' => $screen_id,

    'title' => __( 'Overview', 'plugin_domain' ),

    This is obviously the wrong lines to hack. Please help!!

    Check for function addPlayerHeader in cool-video-gallery.php and try commenting out below 2 lines.

    wp_enqueue_script('jquery.fancybox', $this->plugin_url . 'third_party_lib/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.pack.js', 'jquery');
    			wp_enqueue_style('jquery.fancybox', $this->plugin_url . 'third_party_lib/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.css', 'jquery');

    Hi Praveen
    I have a problem with CVG Gallery.
    I embeded youtube videos to gallery and connect gallery to one of my pages. But on my page I can see preview videos but can not play it. When I push on video - I can see just grey screen. Did I do something wrong? I used [cvg-gallery galleryId='1' mode='showcase' limit='50' /] to add gallery to the page.
    Can you help me with it?
    Thank you
