Description

I tried for a long time to get this plugin to work. It works perfectly for audio. But for video, I always get an error message - [ERROR: No URL was passed to the generic video BBCode]. I am using a simple short code as described in the documentation. I uploaded a test video and keyed in the following:
[video src="http://testprivategroup.commons.gc.cuny.edu/files/2010/12/Wildlife.wmv" width="640" height="360"]

As I said, a similarly formatted shortcode for audio works fine.

Scott - As in the case of #447, do you have a local WP install to see whether the plugin works at all?

#5 Updated by scott voth about 11 years ago

Hi Boone - Just tried this one on my other blog and it worked too. Hope this helps.

Yes, it helps. I hope you don't mind testing - the Commons is a complicated beast and I sometimes don't have the time to do the testing to ensure that the plugin is good on its own.

Two apparent problems:

1) (small) Are you sure that this plugin can handle wmv?
2) (big) The plugin uses the 'video' shortcode, which is already in use by Viper Video Quicktags. VVQ was parsing your use of [video...] before ME was, and your syntax was not consistent with what VVQ needs.

VVQ is activated networkwide and cannot easily be deactivated or modified (see #490). So I have opted to change the ME video shortcode to 'mevideo' https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/e281320283f685b60c9c0a098f896e4d47b81cc9 Try the following:
[mevideo src="http://testprivategroup.commons.gc.cuny.edu/files/2010/12/Wildlife.wmv" width="640" height="360"]

The latest changes have been pulled to cdev. Please give it a try there and let me know.

Hi Boone - Happy to retest - but can you provide the user id and password for this branch? Thanks.

#10 Updated by Boone Gorges about 11 years ago

To access cdev.gc.cuny.edu, use
cdev:community

Your WP password on cdev should be the same as on the production site, at least if you haven't changed it in the last few months. Otherwise just initiate a pw recovery.
