MOV files are not auto-embedded
I have an issue... when i try to upload an mov file from an iphone or computer ( i didnt check with ipad, but with 2 different iphones) everything is ok but the embedding part. I get a link with the long name of the recording instead of a video player. All the other files mp4 one;s are getting embedded well.
Thank you for youre future answers
Please note, that wpDiscuz Media Uploader addon uses HTML5 Audio and Video players. It's already mentioned in the product short and full description. The HTML5 player doesn't support MOV video format, it only supports MP4, WebM and Ogg. Thus the MOV file will be displayed as a simple link. Here is all information about HTML5 player:
Thank you for your answer Tom. I saw it a little bit later, after I wrote the above comment.
I found a solution, but i dont know how to implement it. So, if I rename the mov file to avi or mp4, without convert it, and upload it to the server as comment every thing is ok. it will be treat as mp4 and it's get embeded as mp4.
Do you know how rename only the mov files on the fly?
Try to find some APP for that. Read this blog post:
A method for putting iPhone .mov files into a WordPress Post, that has WpDiscuz with the Uploader plugin activated.
First, activate a free or paid account on Vimeo. Second, on the iPhone, under settings, activate Vimeo, and provide the Vimeo account password. Next, pick a ".mov" video on your iPhone. Use the "upload" icon, choose to upload to Vimeo. The .mov file will be automatically converted to Vimeo format.
Open the Vimeo account in a browser, and copy the embed code. On the WordPress post, with the wpDiscuz Uploader "player" activated, paste the copied embed code into the comment, on its own line. Be sure to adjust the width and height in the pasted embed code to suit your own comment format.
