    @forestwander,

    This error is only thrown if the WordPress uploads directory doesn’t exist or isn’t writable.

    Just to confirm you set permissions on /wp-content/uploads?

    Thanks.

    Yes, absolutely.

    wp-content/uploads and all the folders below.

    Thank you

    Alright, if they’re created it’s unusual the plugin wouldn’t detect them.

    Which directories did you create manually? Did you create the following?

    • wp-content/uploads/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/
    • wp-content/uploads/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/player/
    • wp-content/uploads/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/configs/

    Also, looking at the code I’m using a built in WordPress function to get the path of the uploads directory. Have you made any customizations to your WordPress install?

    Thanks.

    I found the problem. Someone else posted about this issue with another plug in. the specification for the uploads directory in WP 3.1 has a leading slash for whatever reason. Once I removed that it worked.

    /wp-content/uploads

    vs

    wp-content/uploads

    Thanks for your help.

    I have the same activation issue but not sure where this slash needs to remove. Please guide me. I made a custom wordpress installation. this is the page which has jw player video. But the video cant activate in wordpress admin.

    sorry forgot to keep the video page link (http://www.marilyncalvo.com/?page_id=2)

    @umeed,

    This may not necessarily apply to you. Are you using version 3.1 of WordPress?

    Thanks.

    3.0

    @umeed,

    Since you’re using 3.0 the slash shouldn’t be a problem for you.

    I get a 404 when trying to access the URL you provided. Can you double check that it exists?

    Thanks.
