Download of Video File

I've started to add some videos to my galleries. The online player for videos works great! I've found, however, that the DOWNLOAD function doesn't work for movies. Instead, the ZIP that's created includes an HTML file rather than the actual video. Any way to update the download function so it contains the real video file?

As always, thanks for your help.

Looks like a bug - the option to offer a zip of the scaled images should include the processed video.

If you tell the skin to offer the originals for download, you do get the video, but in its original form, i.e., before jAlbum has processed it. So you might get an MOV, an M2TS, etc.

Jeff - Thanks for testing this. I think normally you'd want to offer the processed video rather than the 4K original in order to achieve a reasonable file size for the end user to download. I'm not sure if this is a PhotoBlogger issue or a JAlbum issue so feel free to move this post if appropriate.

Purely a skin thing.

Laza - Is this bug fix on your radar for a future update for Photoblogger? I'd like to allow people to download zips of scaled down videos just like they can download scaled down JPGs now.

As always, thanks!

The core of the ZIP routine has been written before jAlbum offered video reprocessing, so it didn't include those. I will fix this for the next release.
