Flash Video Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello all, right, I've pulled over some .swf video/flash files from my clients old site to put on the new site (dms), and they're fine in Chrome! However in Firefox they simply don't show, and in Internet Explorer they overlap the header image when you scroll down the page. 

This is my first endevour with flash on DMS so i'm obviously missing something here. Should i just convert .swf to .avi? Recommend a flash player plugin? 

 

Here's the link http://1069464306.n588565.test.prositehosting.co.uk/dental-implants/
and i've added them by FTPing them in and then html links.

Try adding your code to a MediaBox instead, also I would probably convert the videos to HTML5.

Okay, I've converted the SWF's to HTML5 format and added them into Mediabox instead of Textbox - so far it's looking a great deal better, thanks Danny. But IE and Firefox are now displaying 'invalid source' & 'no video with supported format and MIME type found'. but it's MP4? and i'm pretty sure i've included the MIME file too, here's the code im now using:

 

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source src="/images/implant/video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="/images/implant/video.webm" type="video/webm">
</video>

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      Hi,
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:

      Hi,
      So I used to use the Video Background extension that was offered here on pagelines, but until recently it continued to function.  Yesterday however it ceased to work and since it has been removed and no longer supported I've been forced to find a new way to show the youtube video that used to be on my background.
      I know that there is the option to upload videos for background, needing both an mp4 and ogv version.  However, since this is a youtube video I don't have any source files to upload.
      I have since turned to using the mb.YTPlayer wordpress plugin.  It seems to be working just fine on its part, as you can see a sliver of it playing just below my footer.  My issue though it that it doesn't show up behind my main body content.  Now it was my understanding that the backgrounds were defaulted to transparent in DMS2 and that this shouldn't be happening.  I've tried several CSS transparency codes to no avail, so my question is how am I able to get the video that is showing up right beneath the footer in other areas?  Either on a section by section basis or for the entire body?
