Support » Plugin: WP Video Posts » Bad file passed to ffmpeg in Multisite

  • We are testing “WP Video Posts” in clean installed multisite.

    The root site is called “videoblogs”, and we have created another called “testsite1”.

    When we upload videos to “videoblogs” everything seems ok. But when we upload to “testsite1” videos don’t work.

    Hi Murmansk,

    Thank you for your post but unfortunately we have never performed any testing on a multisite so our plugin most likely won’t work on a multisite as you have experienced. We would need to update the plugin to detect if multisite is enabled and determine the site id so that the uploaded video can be uploaded, encoded and stored to the correct directory. Sorry for the inconvenience.
