but it is broken. it got hacked and I swapped drives over as a reinstall costs US$50. It has been broken from neglect for a number of years. I should win something for apathy. Seriously.
So, broken and necessary!
The Sheds were using http://galleryprojec... and not the latest version. All the software had official "End of Life" on them, for years.

This is much better than being offline, 9 out of ten dentists say so.
A replica of the old site is possible but maintaining two is not on the program. :) Rusty

As a fibre timing gear!!!. As worn as the column shift on a 3 speed HQ taxi. Or as clapped out as a VK "Singapore" 5 speed!!. Now it's been re-built with ge-u-ine Nasco and AC Delco parts. Right down to a lovely new coat of "Rocket Red" paint.

I Love the new Site Rusty, its got got the same theme as the old one but so much more modern. I work in a Bank and Support >500 Desktop Applications of which some are >20 years old. Im sure there's a bit of relief to be free of some technical debt.

Thanks Ashley, I need to do colours again so we should get in contact. If your into a bit of code have a look at the drupal modules, I think the video module is going on today. The media module sounds ok but I think it is a hard way of doing the features eg:avoid...

I linked the list of modules to T once I upgraded Holdenpaedia, they are the ones for mediawiki 1.27.0 if you want to go an peek... I broke a couple of things on the upgrade that need attention and i was going to add modules when I get toit so open to anything and will do a bit of research then.

I had a quick look for that module and it has been binned so no go with that code... Have you seen it in action(link me) so I can see what it does. https://www.mediawik...

Post your favourite Holdenpaedia link.

If I can pay for all this then I would spider out once done. I tried to before but it kept hitting the wall with lack of dollars. I already have an MS IP sending long odd sus requests on the Holdenpaedia widget, this would take hours to check out.

Hi Rusty, I haven't replied to your email yet, I'll get there, stuff to do over the last couple of nights. Have a look at mediafront module to get small vids like that to embed and play.

Thatnks, That module just does, HTML5, YouTube, Vimeo, and Flash. I like the option of people just using their browser as a player or VLC as this will have an upgrade path, is compatible with everything unlike most else(everything?) and because they should be doing this anyway..

I need to make the filesize bigger, I was thinking 8Mb -> 40Mb should break things only occasionally but keep it more useable.

Im not sure what you mean by compatible. The videos will either be embedded from youtube etc or one of a range of formats that you specify (mp4, wmv mov etc). If in the future there is a need to move to a different version of software you will have the files still as they were uploaded.

What it is doing is just associating the video upload field with the media player. You can set different player size presets for the context that the post is appearing, that way it can come up in the post at a small size in the summary on the front (and can play from there at the small size). Or the player can appear larger on the full node view and people can either play within the browser or right click to download if they want to use VLC locally.

Do you want the vids to appear and play within the browser?

The compatibility issue will just be in setting the restriction on what formats can be uploaded, a lot of peeps will have phones that capture video at HD which is much more res than you need for a little clip in a website but wont necessarily have a way to resize it and change the format.
