    Thanks :)

    You can use the below code in your application to change upload size limit.

    ini_set("post_max_size", "30M");
    ini_set("upload_max_filesize", "30M");

    Please give your ratings for my plugin.

    Thanks,
    Praveen

    Hi,

    You will have to add the above code to your application code. One choice is to add this to your wp-config.php file of WordPress installation.

    You can also use .htaccess file to initialize this setting.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I'm trying to use this plug-in on my site but I'm still having issues with the file size. I've edited my php.ini and added upload_max_filesize = 20M.

    On the plug-in overview page this does change to the 20m, but on the actual upload video section it says Maximum file upload size: 8MB.

    I've tried the method described in one of the above posts by putting the code below into my wp-config file but to no avail.

    ini_set("post_max_size", "30M");
    ini_set("upload_max_filesize", "30M");

    Thanks in advance
    Henry

    Hi Praveen -

    Can you give some more information please? I need to increase the file size allowed. Adding the two ini_set lines to the wp-config file didn't do it for me. On the server data shown on the plugin's overview page, it still shows 10M, and I can't upload a file larger.

    It should be so simple, but I apologize for inability to make the change.

    If your site is in some shared hosting then your host must have disabled such features. Instead of changing the configuration you could upload videos through FTP and then scan those videos through the option available.

    Thanks

    Hi Praveen -

    No, my host doesn't impose a file upload size limit. I'm referring to the Video Gallery Overview page,

    But - I think I just figured out where to find the Gallery folder, so I can do as you suggest with the scan command.

    Many, many thanks!

    The details shown in the overview page is your Server Configuration. Your host supports only upto 10MB of maximum upload size. Please contact your host to increase it.

    Thanks

    Please create a gallery using the plugin. Move your video files into this gallery through FTP access. Go to manage gallery page and select the gallery created now. Use the scan gallery folder button in that page to add videos to gallery.

    The file upload limit depends on your hosting site. You will have to contact your host provider for the same.

    Thanks
    Praveen

    wp-config-sample.php is the file that is renamed to wp-config.php during the time of WordPress installation. You could try renaming the same and put the configuration in it.

    Hi Praveen,

    I'm evaluating/testing your Cool Video Plugin and I find it great! Thank you for contributing and sharing the Plugin.

    Now, i have a site with two Cool View Gallery, the first gallery has 10 videos listed and the second gallery has 10 videos also. I need to upload 20 videos in one page if possible but video 11-20 does not appear. So I split the videos into two galleries. Still the second gallery does not appear in the page along with the 10 videos.

    Please help me on this.

    The site is http://www.richmondinnsilay.com

    Check the About Us - Gallery page.

    I hope to hear your advice asap.

    More power!

    hiii Bhavika,

    create php.ini file in wp-admin folder and paste these lines

    post_max_size = 75M
    upload_max_filesize = 75M
    max_execution_time 300
    max_input_time 300

    thats all you have to do.
