videojs and vlc?

Hello All,
I am trying to get videos to show up on my piwigo page but am having trouble. The mp4 videos show up but videos that are .mov, .wmv, and .avi do not even appear. I have not been able to install/activate (not sure of the right term) ffmpeg or mediaInfo so that may be why I can't see thumbnails for these other videos.

I have run across an extension for chrome called VLC. Does anyone have any experience with it? Or has there been any recent developments on getting other movie formats to play?

Thanks for any help.

Re: videojs and vlc?

you use standard web format or you force your visitors to download extra stuff
the first one is the best but you can choose

Re: videojs and vlc?

Thanks for the response flop25.

I agree the first option is by far the best. Or it would be the best if I were looking for visitors. Really, I just want a place to archive my photos and videos so my requirements are more along the lines of preserving the original format of the files. Does converting the files degrade the quality at all? I would think any conversion would impact quality.

So it would be nice to have a way to view the original videos in a browser and I was hoping VLC could do that. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks again.
