MP4 and Video function in version 11

I installed version 11 and tried the video option. JALBUM does convert the video and I do get a thumbnail. When I click on the thumbnail, I get a messagebox that wants me to download the video. If I press ok, the video is downloaded and shown in a new window and not in my FOTOPLAYER skin.

The skin developer says that video should work with his template. So what am I doing wrong?

Is this the web page http://www.sonnabend-edv.de/-BILDER-DOODLE/? I can't see it as I'm using an iPad. However, if you could provide more information someone may be able to help. For example, details on the movie file, original format, size, the specific web page if not above.

Do you want this moving to the Fotoplayer forum?

I suspect that FotoPlayer doesn't supply an embedded video player like the Turtle and Base skins do today. I move this to the FotoPlayer forum so the author can comment.

This is the link: http://www.sonnabend-edv.de/-BILDER-DOODLE/
and I uploaded the "problem". I tried it in the preview before, behaves the same way.

The template supports FLV and that is what I dragged into JALBUM. Looks like JALBUM converts anything I throw at it to a MP4. That seems to be the problem, as the template does not seem to support that.

Any ideas??

Wow, that sure helped a lot!!! I just renamed my MP4 to FLV and of I went.

Had to create a thumb manually (By default, FotoPlayer will use standard SWF, FLV thumbnails. If you want to use custom thumbnails, create a snapshot of the video and save it in .thm format ( you can first create in jpg and then rename the file extension to .thm). Now copy the .thm file to the JAlbum image directory along with your video. Example : for video.flv, create video.thm in the same folder.), but look at me now.

So now I have to pester the developer to add MP4 functionality to the FOTOPLAYER template, right?

Thanks a lot for your tip, I would NEVER have thought to handle it like that!!!!!!

How is that for good support? I asked the developer of FOTOPLAYER about the problem yesterday and today I got a fix. I obviously picked the right template and developer. ;-)

FOTOPLAYER can be added to the list that support video in JALBUM 11!

Thank you Dhina for your fast response!

Please, could you tell us, what the fast response of Dhina was? I am very interested, because in the meanwhile I have reinstralled JA V.10, although I had bought the V.11.
