[Plugin: PodPress] Doesn't show preview video image (2 posts)

    Hi!

    I got a problem using Podpress for embbed a .FLV video. When I choose to change the Preview Image, the image does change in the file settings...

    But when I preview the post, it doesn't show any image at all, just the "press play to view" in the center of the screen.

    What I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    You do nothing wrong.
    Your observation is right. If you insert a FLV file then there will be no preview of a player instead you will get the "real" player and this does not show preview images - or at least I don't if or how it is possible to bring him to do that.

    But if you want to have such a player preview of podPress like for all other video file types then you might be able to help yourself very quick:
    Open the podpress.js file in an text editor and change the line 99 (podPress v8.8.6.3) like this

    old:

    if(strExt != 'mp3' && strExt != 'flv' && strExt != 'youtube' && strAutoStart == 'false') {

    new:

    if(strExt != 'mp3'  && strExt != 'youtube' && strAutoStart == 'false') {

    The next podPress version will maybe contain this or a different solution.

    Regards,
    Tim
