    Hey Praveen-

    Just tried upgrading to v1.6, really appreciate you putting the descriptions back. Unfortunately, the video player is still giving me scroll bars and a new navigation table, even when set to "No Skin."

    I like the way it looks in v1.4 and just want to be able to keep it the same. Here are some screenshots to illustrate the issue clearly:

    On a side not, also updated to wp3.4 and everything works great.

    Cheers.

    Hi J. Brown,

    Are you facing this issue in all the Web Browsers or any specific browser?

    As you can see in the screenshot section(http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cool-video-gallery/screenshots/) this does not happen. May some CSS of your theme interfering with plugin CSS.

    Thanks,
    Praveen Rajan

    Hey-

    The "CVG Fancybox playback feature" in the screenshot section does not show the scroll bars but is still considerably different then what I get in v1.4. (white borders and big gray nav tab - see the screenshots again above.) I don't see how its the css from my theme. If I have v1.4 installed everything is great. As soon as I put in v1.6. the player is totally different looking. Same css, different output from the plugin. You must have changed something with the player. Also, I did not check it across different browsers but I was using Firefox 12 which is one of the most popular.

    Hi,

    The plugin playback popup was changed from Shadowbox to Fancybox. It is clearly stated in Changelog. So comparison cannot be made between v1.4 and 1.6. On changing the libraries, the CSS will also get changed. So I just want to make sure that it is not an issue with your theme's CSS.

    Update: Could you post the live URL for your work so that I can take a look at it.

    Thanks,
    Praveen Rajan

    Hey Praveen-

    My apologies. I did not notice/realize that Shadowbox replaced Fancybox altogether. I do question that decision. I do not agree that Fancybox improves the UI (there were plenty of good options for skins previously and customizing is not that important when its a pop up.) I will likely stay with v1.4 for this reason.

    Honestly, I think the pop up player was good the way you had it. There are many video gallery plugins available that offer extensive functionality for Youtube and beyond, what makes CVG great is its simplicity. Self hosted video with simple and streamlined player options. As the old saying goes: "If it aint broke, don't fix it."

    @J Brown

    It's not just the UI that was affected by Fancybox, HTML5 support was added together with Fancybox which was not possible with Shadowbox. You still have options for skins. May i know what is that you are missing from the previous version?

    Thanks,

    @ bnard2010

    From the error message, I think you have added Youtube Video URL instead of Video ID. Please see the example provided in Youtube Videos tab. Make sure you add Video ID instead of Video URL.

    Please clear your browser cache and then try once again. And let me know if it is still an issue.

    Nice plugin! Thanks.

    Autoplay seems to work rather erratically. I have a playlist and would like it to

    1) Start automatically
    2) Continue to next video after the current one is playing.

    Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    For the showcase type, autoplay never works. It would be cool if it could advance to the next video in the showcase automatically.

    I am having the same problem as people in another post. Trying to add a YouTube ID and it just results in a blank screen. I really only want to use the plug in for this feature rather than uploading my own because they're all over the 10MB limit. Any help?
    THANK YOU!

    Hello,

    I just updated my wordpress site to 3.4.1 version, and my cool video gallery plugin to 1.6 version. Now cvg is not working properly. Shadowbox and player to be specific. On IE and mozilla it gives me white background with old quicktime player. On safari it gives me a solid brown background, ant player is missing some features, like the option to x out.

    Can anyone help? Thanks

    On my v1.6, I cannot seem to upload to a new gallery.
    1. I create a gallery.
    2. I upload the video, and point to the appropriate (new) gallery.
    3. Upload proceeds as one would expect, no issues. I can see the percentage of upload in the progress box.
    4. At 100%, when I would expect to see the annunciator bar at the top say "(1) videos successfully uploaded, as I have see a hundred times, not it says - 0 videos.
    5. I look at my server /wp-content/uploads/video-gallery/NAME OF VIDEO. And it is there, right where it is supposed to be. Indeed, as I have tried this upload procedure several times before trying to contat you here, I see

      every instance
    of the upload attempts.

    Everything was working fine until this last Major Change. Do I need to reconfigure anything? What am I doing wrong here?
    BTW, I deleted, and reinstalled v1.6, to no avail.

    Thanks, Praveen. I really like this plug-in, I just wish I could get it to work.

    Hey Praveen

    Is there a way to split the option of displaying video description in "gallery view" and "video player"?

    Because when I activate the display of description, in "gallery view" horizontal alignment get messed up. I want description just to be shown as a tooltip or when video plays at the bottom of the player, not at the gallery view!

    Thanks again for your great plugin.

    @Praveen Rajan: Hey, I solved the scrollbar problem. been researching this all day all over the web, a lot of people have it, but many people don't have it so it's hard to come up with a solution when it's not a common problem. What I did was open the code with Opera's "inspect element" and tried to change the plugin's native CSS with this in my CSS:

    #fancybox-content {
        overflow: hidden !important;
        border: 10px solid #000 !important;
    }

    That didn't work at all, so I opened the code again looking for the problem and realized that the core of the problem is in the DIV of the Fancybox (the one that holds the video element);

    <div style="width:640px;height:486px;overflow: auto;position:relative;">

    Now, I am no CSS wizard, so I wasn't able to come up with a workaround for this via CSS, what I did instead was to change the jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.pack file, in the cool-video-gallery/third_party_lib/fancybox folder. I looked for the word "overflow" and changed "auto" for hidden. I am just a graphics designer, not a programmer but that seemed to do the trick. I don't know what the side effects of my hack were so I would like to ask if this fix will appear in the next update or I have to do this every time I update the plugin.

    I also can't delete videos. Also, when I'm in the add videos screen the tabs don't work properly.

    It's weird, this used to work before, I don't know what changed.

    Anyhow, I'm abandoning the plugin due to lack of support.

    Hello,

    I am using Cool Video Gallery to post videos on my blog and I must say that I just love it.

    All was fine till now a week ago when WordPress has been updated and now I CAN'T:

    -Upload video thumbnails
    -Delete videos
    -Delete gallery
    -CVG Showcase Widget shows the same videos at all times instead of showing the last video upload on the top of the old ones!

    Can anyone help in this matter.

    I know this is a FREE service and this takes time to be fixed and even so CVG is exactly what I NEED FOR MY BLOG.

    Maybe the developer of this plugin will have some spare time to have a look at the plugin.

    Thank you Rajan

    Best wishes

    JB

    Anyone having problems with youtube videos not being added to galleries? You might be lacking bcmath functions...

    If you are on a linux server chances that bcmath support is missing are very high ( windows has them built in ).

    To overcome the issue you can add this code to your functions.php file.

    @ Rajan
    : you might put this code in the core.php outside the class definition.

    Cheers
    Dario

    if( !function_exists('bcmod') ) {
    /**
     * my_bcmod - get modulus (substitute for bcmod)
     * string my_bcmod ( string left_operand, int modulus )
     * left_operand can be really big, but be carefull with modulus :(
     * by Andrius Baranauskas and Laurynas Butkus :) Vilnius, Lithuania
     **/
    function bcmod( $x, $y )
    {
        // how many numbers to take at once? carefull not to exceed (int)
        $take = 5;
        $mod = ''; 
    
        do
        {
            $a = (int)$mod.substr( $x, 0, $take );
            $x = substr( $x, $take );
            $mod = $a % $y;
        }
        while ( strlen($x) ); 
    
        return (int)$mod;
    }
    }
