    Congratulations on a beauty of a plug-in.

    Question #1:
    Is there a way to prevent a Quicktime linked to my own server from pre-loading each time my page it hit?

    Logic #1:
    If I have a large Quicktime on my front page, every visitor gets delivery whether or not a.) They've seen it before or b.)They don't care to watch it.

    Question #2:
    Can it be made to hold a .WMV?

    Logic #2:
    I have several pre-existing WMV videos before deciding those were unpopular things. I can convert them to MOVs, but if all Quicktimes are pre-loading, I don't think I want to do that the way my blog is presently set-up.

    TIA!

    Could someone help a rookie out here and explain exactly what I am supposed to do to line 101 in detail? Thanks.

    Version 2.1 is out. Sorry everyone for so many downloads. 2.1 fixes Apsey's issues. MOV and FLV files are now covered with a proxy image.

    By including a MOV you are actually going to see a quick time logo with text stating click here to view. Once the user clicks the video is actually brought up. This is a very important fix, and I am very glad someone brought it to my attention.

    There is also a new flvPlayer to mimic the same thing. It makes sure the movie isnt download everytime anyone hits your site :).

    Version 2.1 is located in the same place
    download here: Extreme Video 2.1

    There were also some problems actually viewing MOVs and FLVS in IE that have been resolved.

    trevor737
    Sorry to be so confusing I wish i could have made it more straight forward. Also after you download version 2.1 you now need to edit line 104 not line 101 :)

    The first step is to download the flvplayer.swf from my server you can get it from the link above. Once you have downloaded the SWF copy it over to your website anywhere.

    Lets say your website is http://www.trevor737.com and you copy the player into the root of your website. You should now be able to access the flvPlayer by browseing to http://www.trevor737.com/flbPlayer.swf.

    You can put this file in any folder if you rather so it is something like
    http://www.trevor737.com/flvPlayer/flvPlayer.swf
    Once you have the URL to the SWF file that is what you need to update line 104 with for example the line should look like:

    DEFINE('PP_PLAYERPATH', "http://www.trevor737.com/flvPlayer.swf");

    You are just telling the plug-in where it can find a local FLV player. I hope this helped. Also these steps are only if you wish to use FLV files directly with this plugin.

    I apologize again for the updates, hopefully there wont be any issues with this one! Please keep me updated and I will do my best to correct any problems.

    As for WMV files I will look into including them but it wont take very high priority as I dont really see them being used very much anymore, they did kinda die out.

    Thanks to everyone for using this plug-in!

    My friend Max just put it to good use on his site. It looks sick!

    Max: http://max.slipabuck.com

    One note: The fullscreen link should be under the video. Looks classier that way.

    Thanks much!

    will the plugin remain in Beta or will it become stable anytime soon?

    I just looked into those services. They should be easy to include. I also have requests to include WMF, AVI, and MPEG files. I am going to try my best to get them all included

    amit

    I would love to make it stable, but it will stay beta as I add more file formats and services. Once I feel I have made everyone happy with formats I will just worry about stability. Though the current release is very stable for the services and formats it supports, if you are looking to use it.

    Any other additions please lemme know I would love to get this stable.

    Thanks for the support everyone.....

    I just use the YouTube & Google Video, now I might start using FLV as well. So if the plugin doesn't break, then I'll upgrade else I'll wait for it to become stable. :)

    Some slight modifications:

    If you are posting HD (16x9) movies and want to get rid of the whitespace in the plugin, make these changes about a third of the way down:
    //Function to return a Quick Time embeded Video Object
    function gv_returnQTObject(
    $url,
    $wid,
    $hei,
    $linkText=QT_DEFAULTLINKTEXT,
    $linkClass=QT_DEFAULTLINKCLASS,
    $qtHolder=QT_DEFAULTQTHOLDERCLASS,
    $qt=QT_DEFAULTQTCLASS,
    $useLogo=QT_USEQTLOGO)
    {
    global $gv_currentVideo;
    $gv_currentVideo++;

    $wid == null ? $wid = "500" : null;
    $hei == null ? $hei =
    "297" : null;

    If you want a reference image instead of the QT logo, about halfway down the plugin (in the same function as above), remove the highlighted code:
    <td align='center' valign='middle'>
    <img src='".QT_IMAGELOGO."' border='0' alt='Quick Time Logo'/>
    <br>
    <b>".QT_PROXYTEXT."</b>

    </td>
    </tr>

    Finally, about a fifth of the way from the top of the plugin, add a link to a 500x281 image, like so:
    //LOGO TO USE INSIDE THE PROXY FOR QUICKTIME
    DEFINE('QT_IMAGELOGO',
    'http://www.theillustratedlife.com/brentmax.jpg');

    Those are just some quick enhancements I have made. At some point I'll probably add a way to change reference images on the fly (so you can use different posters for different movies), but I have a paper to write, so that will have to wait. . . Enjoy!

    I followed the directions, but I cannot get a google video to play. It shows up as text in the post.

    The example shows a path to google video, but I cannot find this without the embed tags at the google video site.

    I removed the embed and any other extraneous information and it still would not work.

    I am going to try it with a .mov file , but would like to use the google video.

    Any ideas

    @chaoswarp:

    Did you take a look at instructions for inclusion of WMV files at ?
    Is this included in 2.3, or in a next version or are they simply wrong? It is not the desired solution but...

    Best

    3.0 is in the works. It will be class based, much easier to work with. Much cleaner. I already have it going to fLV, google and you tube. I am working on other formats now like mov and avi and windows formats.

    Check back for updates. Will be soon
