[resolved] JW6 Shortcodes (24 posts)

    Hi,

    The new jwplayer 6 works great but have some issues.

    1.) I want to clarify something. The old code will no longer work. Example:
    [jwplayer config="audio" file="http://mylink.com/myfile.mp3"]

    Question 1: We need to use the "add external" media first then insert it to post? Coz the old "file" would not work?

    2.) Its related to 1 above. The file="link" seems to work but does not work together with the skins. Whether I use config="audio" or playerid="3" . It only uses the default one. But when I remove the file="link" and use mediaid="1" the skins show. Btw, we upgrade to premium, so we can change skins via settings.

    3.) Some config="" settings gives an error "skin missing". I know its incompatibility from JW5, but we already have a lot of shortcode embeds on our site and this is kinda annoying to change all of them.

    4.) The video works great on IOS but the audio only does not. the width & height is like a video. Even if I add height="24" it does not take effect in IOS, is there a solution to this?

    Thanks in advance

    What was the solution to getting an audio-only file to display properly in iOS? I am having the same problem, where an mp3 file with a height of 24 displays properly on a desktop, but on an iPhone it is too large, like a video - just as you said.

    This is an issue that we are going to fix with an upcoming player release. We set a min height on devices so right now a controlbar only implementation is not possible.

    I tried that shortcode, the video player comes up with the image displayed, but the when I click on the play button, it shows the spinning wheel like it is loading, but nothing else happens.

    Funny, I just used that and it worked this time. I noticed the 0 and 1 with the HD options. Can you let me know what each one is?

    If you are just using two files, then I would recommend updating the player to 6.8, there won't be a menu, just hd on or off.

    Edit this file - jwplayermodule.php

    And change:

    define("JWP6_PLAYER_LOCATION", null);

    To:

    define("JWP6_PLAYER_LOCATION", "http://p.jwpcdn.com/6/8/jwplayer.js");

    One more question. Enounce was working with JW5, but now our customers are having problems getting it to function with JW6. Any ideas / help would be appreciated.

    THis is a program that allows you to change the playback speed of videos.

    This can be done by using our JS API - http://www.jwplayer.com/blog/slow-motion-with-jw-player/

    What about speeding it up without losing the audio quality (where it sounds like chipmunks)? That is the main benefit of enounce.

    Every browser handles speed changes in html5 video differently. I would recommend muting the volume when the speed is changed.

    You are missing the point of enounce. it speeds up the video while retaining the audio integrity. I doubt you have a plugin that can do that. So back to the original question...it works with JW5, but not with JW6...ideas?

    This is using a custom JW5 plugin called speedslider. enounce would have to update their plugin to JW6. We have a SDK for JW6 plugins here - http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/browser/sdks/jw6-plugin-sdk
