Kudos, Applause, and Frustration

Greetings Piwigo Masters

I just spent several hours scouring the internet for photo galleries using php. I must have tested 80 of them using their demo link and I could not find one that has the features, look and feel, and the community support like Piwigo has.

I was hoping to find an alternative option to Piwigo, but unfortunately, there really is nothing that compares.

Congratulations Piwigo. You Rock.

However; this creates a dilemma for me as I am also frustrated with Piwigo as I am unable to get the videos to work after many months of trying. I just cannot find the right formula, recipe, and configuration. Though it is posted that it will work.

Been using Piwigo for over a year and everything about Piwigo is absolutely awesome... Well, still figuring out the theme thing for the admin and then the users and a few other things, but they are not major issues.

And I do not really need to have videos, would be nice since it is available, right?

Anyway, I know this is a weird way to give kudos, applause, and vent my frustration.

Thank you Piwigo!!!

Personally, I find it better to upload my videos to youtube, and then embed them in my Piwigo gallery. They stream much faster, they don't take up any hosting disk space, and the viewer can select any resolution they want

Hello
thank you

I've just added VideoJS and set:

$conf['upload_form_all_types'] = true;
// file_ext : file extensions (case sensitive) authorized
$conf['file_ext'] = array_merge(
  $conf['picture_ext'],
  array('tiff', 'tif','mpg','mp4','MP4','zip','avi','mp3','ogg','pdf','mkv','MKV','AVI')
  );

of course you need teh requirements from https://github.com/xbgmsharp/piwigo-videojs

Interesting. Did not know you could do that on here.
So then I guess we can also add them from vimeo as well?

Re: Kudos, Applause, and Frustration

Thank you, I will give it a try when I get time to concentrate on it.

Piwigo is awesome, but I have realized that it does take some knowledge and know-how to maintain and operate it. Course you could go on the basics, but my father in law wants this and that and... then he screws his up and i have to fix it. :D

peace all.
