[Resolved] Conflict with FV Flowplayer?

  • Hi!

    I upgraded to the latest WP and then my plugins including BPS.

    After, running WordPress Flowplayer Version 2.1.20 | By Foliovision, my videos started not working and I got this error on the page where the video should load:

    “Admin: Video Issues
    Analysis of http://www.youremploymentbarrister.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Intro-Video.mp4 (local):
    Error: Access to video forbidden (HTTP 403)!
    Format: mp4
    Meta Data (moov) position: 28
    Seek points: 3465 (stts sample count)

    XCache: XCache Extension is Loaded but Not Enabled

    I am guessing BPS has caused an issue that is preventing the plugin from reading the media files?

    Many thanks

    I checked the link you posted to your video and it is playing correctly. Did you put BPS in Default Mode or was this some other issue or problem?

    If this issue/problem is related to BPS you will see an error logged in your BPS Security Log file. Please post that error here.

    Is the issue/problem still occurring?

    Yes. The video should appear on the home page. SO the page appears normal but the video does not appear or the player. The above “Admin: Video issues” is the error message I get as an Admin.

    Thanks for your help!

    Check your BPS Security Log and post the Flowplayer error here. The BPS Security Log entry logs exactly what is being blocked so that a skip/bypass/whitelist rule can be created based on that error log entry.

    The error I see is this:
    >>>>>>>>>>> 403 GET or Other Request Error Logged – July 12, 2013 – 12:46 pm <<<<<<<<<<<
    Host Name: uk11.myserverhosts.com
    REQUEST_URI: /wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Intro-Video.mp4
    HTTP_USER_AGENT: WordPress/3.5.2; http://www.youremploymentbarrister.com

    but I see no Flow player error specifically – just this file.

    Oddly, I can see the video load fine if I oogin from my iphone just not through my laptop.

    Perhaps this is not a BPS issue after all? Odd. . .

    Ok well you have your answer then since the video plays fine for me and plays fine for you on your iphone, but not on your laptop. There is a codec or other video problem with your laptop. Try installing DivX on your laptop. DivX comes bundled with the latest codecs.

    Additional info related to Server Protocol HTTP/1.0
    There was a similar issue/problem posted here.

    The error shows that Server Protocol HTTP/1.0 is being used. Server Protocol HTTP/1.0 is used by hackers and spammers or outdated proxy software or other outdated software, etc. and has been replaced by Server Protocol HTTP/1.1 as of 1997-1999. All legitimate requests should be using HTTP/1.1 and NOT HTTP/1.0.

    I tested the FV WordPress Flowplayer with BPS and the 403 error is just a nuisance error that can be resolved by following the instructions in the link below.
