I found out today that WP 3.4.2 break the compatibility with Hana-FLV-Player version 2.9.3.
I ran the following tests on different browsers/OSs (Win 7 = Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with Chrome, Linux = Ubuntu with Firefox 14.0.1, Mac = Mac OS 10.6.4 with Safari AND Firefox):
Player Win 7 Linux Mac(Safari/FFox)
1 OK OK OK/OK
2 OK OK OK/OK
3 OK OK Error.3/Error.3
4 OK Error.1 OK/Error.3
5 Error.2 Error.2 Error.2/Error.2
ANY* Error.3* Error.3*
Error.1 = Player shows up in post as a grey rectangle, no controls are seen
Error.2 = Player shows up in post correctly, controls are seen, video is loaded with the proper length – but when it is played, the audio is heard but the screen remains black.
Error.3 = the above setup functions properly ONLY IF an absolute URL is passed as a parameter to the video’ tag. If a relative address is given (i.e. “video=’videos/KB_2011-08-07.flv’ “), the player shows up in the post, but the screen is black (as opposed to a frame from the video displayed when everything is fine) and the video clip length is listed as 0:00. This was observed with all 5 players and 3 OSs/4 browsers.
The tag I used was
[hana-flv-player video="http://pouchenia.org/wp/videos/KB_2012-02-13.flv" width="400" description="" player="1|2|3|4|5" autoload="true" autoplay="false" loop="false" autorewind="true" clicktarget="_self" /]
I proved the error is due to WP 3.4.2 because I installed WP 3.4.1 in a different directory, used the same tag and the video played with no problems with “player=’5′ ” – which is the case I am interested in the most. It was even OK with relative URLs!
Long description, but I know this is better for debugging. Please let me know if I can assist you with that…
