Tested on my laptop - seems to work well.

Things that I can see to do are just about implementation into our 3-step publish form. To make the Upload button available there rather than on a tab.

Plus to it working with ATEngageVideo rather than uploading as a file.

  • Milestone changed from 0.2 to 0.3

Moved to 0.3 as proposed a few weeks ago. no more features are being added into 0.2 before a 'final' is released, only bug fixes.

  • Milestone changed from 0.3 - Plone 3 to 0.2.2 - small user side enhancements

Will attempt to look at integrating PloneFlashUpload? product with our customised video upload templates. This product was tested by Andycat previously, but it uses a tab to upload (along with Edit, Properties etc. when viewing an object) so may or may not be easy enough to do for this release.

If it looks too hard, we will instead look at using Ajax to swap out part of the page to include a simple animation that goes around and/or simply some text that says "please wait while your video uploads, it may take some time depending on how big your video file is and how fast your upload speed is".

i tested this with a 2.8 MB Ogg video. i did not see a progress bar at anytime while it was uploading - though i could have missed it?? i did it twice but never saw it.

also i saw that this part of the flash player was displayed on successful save of the video:

Copy the following to embed the movie into another web page:

Download Hi-Res / Screening Version (2.8 MB)

Videos best viewed on VLC player

which may be confusing to the user, given that the flash video itself is not displayed (i presume as it has not transcoded yet).

You need to use the 'upload' tab, inside a video folder, eg

click on 'Upload Files' then you will be using PloneFlashUpload?. It is not integrated with the stepped upload form we have developed.

You also need to use a file with extension ".avi" or ".mov" . You should end up with a ATEngageVideo object, which can then be used in the normal fashion. ie click on the edit tab, and go through the normal steps. upon step 3, the uploaded file will already be attached.

Thanks for heads up about that embed code message being included. Ive fixed it.

We have ditched PloneFlashUpload? as too complex to push into 0.2.2

We have a compromise , "fake" progress bar , which really is just an animation, and text , to warn people that the upload may take ages.

Tested on FF/Linux, and MacOS/FF

tested and confirmed as working on IE 7.0.5730.11 on XP Pro.

comment:13 Changed 5 years ago by and

doesn't work on safari 3.1.2, but that's not really a show stopper.

Need to make sure the installer moves this new script 'upload_form_spinner.js' below jquery.js, else its an JS error. :(
