Assign Manual Video Thumbnail for Hosts Without FFMPEG

Under Consideration

Dear Team NetObjects,


Please consider developing a method to manually assign a video thumbnail for hosting services without FFMPEG. I'm currently using InMotion Hosting (IMH), which appears on your recommended hosts and they do not offer FFMPEG on their shared hosting.


Thank you kindly,

This is a "must" since many hosts don't come with FFMPEG or has it installed in a "non standard path" making Koken not recognizing it (Tried to correct this my editing the /storage/configuration/user_setup.php to no avail.).

Hi

Yes, this feature is absolutely necessary as most users will be on some kind of shared platform or wont have the skills needed to implement it on their site.

thanks

If we have a good plugin for video we don't need to use our bandwidth.

Since installing FFMPEG is a pain i. t. a., I suggest you simply provide 2 extra fields in the app:

- one for thumbnail specification/upload

- one for an alternative .ogv version of the video

THIS IS SIMPLE, I already set it up this way with another CMS. Mediaelementplayer can be fully customized.

The possibility of adding your own thumbnail to your uploaded videos is still much needed. It would be appreciated very much if you could do it. :)

This is so very much needed! Cant show of my video work in album view because of this silly FFMPEG bullshit (vimeo not an option), and thats a real bummer since everything else about koken is awesome!
