[Plugin: PodPress] Doesn't show preview video image

  • joseviruete



    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


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


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

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