Received the video back from the vid guy, trying to post it for the client. Used ScriptyLightBox2 inside an HTML box with a background graphic & 2 little graphics on top with actions affixed to make them ScriptyLightBox triggers for the video in 2 formats - MP4 & SWF. The site uploaded fine, & the vids went up too, but they won’t load when clicked.
When I look at Walter’s page ScriptyLightbox2
Clicking his thumbnail opens the video player window & shows the controller. When I click my thumbnail a window opens, but no controller. The MP4 link opens a black box of the prescribed size, with the dreaded Question Mark Q for missing QuickTime codec. However, behind the ?Q is a spinning wheel, which makes you think it’s loading, it never does, it just spins forever. Yet the vid plays in those same browsers in preview mode from Freeway. Clicking the Flash thumbnail also opens a black box, but no progress bars, spinning loaders or controls, nor any video.
Both the thumbnails show links in the browser’s status bar, that are correct, corresponding with the correct videos in the site’s Resource folder. So why won’t anything work?
I’ve read a bunch of ScriptyLightBox threads, but to no avail. I’ve read the ActionForge page, no help there either. There was a section for suggestions, but I don’t think this membership works there… or does it? I would have suggested they add WMV so our poor friends on peecee can watch videos too.
I really don’t want to have to use YouTube embedded video & subject the client’s site to adverts & the crap that invariably follows your video when they have it. But if I can’t get Freeway to host the video… I’ll have no other choice than to go with YouTube… hope not.
Here’s my page http://2studiob.ca/video.html
