    Did anyone manage to integrate xmoov.php (great simple streaming script that works) with wordTube?

    Great question! xmoov.php should be part of wordTube next release (suggestion). I am trying to solve this issue too, so far I managed to make it work in a very dirty way, by placing the media files and xmoov.php in the plugins/wordtube directory, where the player.swf is, then changing the embed code wordtube generates, manually, in each post.
    The problem is that wordtube generate full path to the media file where xmoov.php and expects something like: file=media.flv&streamer=xmoov.php
    there must be more elegant way to do this. JW player expects xmoov.php to be in the same directory.

    Based on Alex's post here: http://alexrabe.boelinger.com/wordpress-plugins/" he has stopped development of wordTube.

    I hope it's a mistake, a wonderful plug.

    Here's xmoov.php script that works for me - it needs to be in the /plugins/wordtube directory:

    <?php

          }
        break;
      }
    }
    
    ?>

    wordTube generates this flashvar:

    flashvars : {
    file : "http%3A%2F%2Fmydomain.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fvideos%2Ftest.flv",
    }

    How can we make wordTube trim the full path to URL in the file flashvar to look like this:

    flashvars : {
    file : "test.flv",
    }

    What should I

    ..do to make xmoov.php, wordtube and jw player.swf to work in harmony?
    jw player.swf expects xmoov.php to be in the same directory.
