Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

Is it possible to view videos on smartphones such as Android for instance, using the smart mobile theme?  I have Flash installed on the phone and other flash based videos play just fine.

When I browse to my video album, I can navigate to individual videos but all I see is an icon which does not activate when I select it on the phone.

I am using jplayer 0.4 and attempting to serve flv based files. Using a standard desktop browser the videos work flawlessly!

I am running Piwigo version 2.4.5.

Thanks.

I would also like to know if this is possible.  Video works in desktop mode but of course,  that defeats the purpose.

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

I just discovered that the Mobile theme is not compatible with plugins at this time. I neglected to bookmark or capture where I read this information. I believe that it was on a Piwigo blog or somewhere on the Piwigo website.

In any event hope this clears up the situation a bit more. If I can remember where I read the information, I will update this thread.

regards....

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

As it is not possible to have video's played from the Smart Mobile theme, is there any way, maybe with a bit of hacking, that I can hide specific albums that contain my videos when viewed from the mobile?

Cheers,

James

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

I found the forum thread I referenced regarding the inability to use plugins with the mobile theme. The post from a member of the Piwigo team is the second from the last post.

http://piwigo.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=20146


As far as preventing galleries that contain videos from showing up when accessed via the mobile theme...I have no idea. Hopefully, someone with more technical expertise than I can come up with a solution.

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

Hello,
I created a bug to follow up progress on that; I also attached a patch that can be helpful for other users like me who can't see their videos using piwigo mobile theme :

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

Flash  is not supported on any mobile device. Adobe stop it 2 years ago, http://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/20 … focus.html
The only way to get video on mobile and desktop is by using HTML5 video.
A plugin exist http://piwigo.org/ext/extension_view.php?eid=610
This allow you to play video on mobile device and desktop and much more.

However in Piwigo 2.5, the mobile template does not support plugin, so there is patch to allow that.
It should be include in the next release I hope.

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

Hi xbgmsharp,

I am interested in implementing your patch. I'm just not sure about the process of implementing it. Do I FTP the patch into the smart mobile theme's folder and replace the "thumbnails.tpl" file with your renamed patch?


I know this is a noob type question and I checked around the site to no avail. If there is a process documented on the site, can you or someone please point me to it?

Thanks.

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

no, you need to apply the patch with a dedicated program (I only know TortoiseDiff provided with TortoiseSVN)

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

The editing sounds like a quicker solution.  I'll try it first.

Thanks.

Re: Watching video from Smart Mobile theme

I was able to modify the thumbnail.tpl file manually via the text editor process successfully. Thanks to all who assisted.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. But the patch just works around the issue by redirecting to a direct URL of the file if it's a .m4v or .webm file. It does not make plugins work in the smartpocket theme, or should it?

Here the effect of the patch is, that the video's direct file URL opens in a new browser window, and the Android system's video player jumps in. It's not like the file gets played in videojs inside the browser.

Still very helpful, though.
