MOV File Upload?

Hello,

I'm looking to switch to a self-hosted install of Piwigo from Google Photos. I have an iPhone, so I'd like to include my video files in Piwigo which are .mov files. I noticed the inability to upload MOVs and possible incompatibility; is there any way to enable support for MOV video files? Is this something that may be supported in the future?

Thank you for any guidance!
- Jon

Just rename them to .mp4

Re: MOV File Upload?

This worked, thank you! I found a handy Command Prompt command to do this in bulk...
(ren *.mov *.mp4)
Glad to be on board using Piwigo in place of Google Photos.

Re: MOV File Upload?

Attention with extension changes…

The video container remains a .MOV one and the pseudo .MP4 files won't be opened by video players not supporting .MOV files. This is why the Piwigo iOS app converts .MOV files before uploading them to a Piwigo server.

Would it be possible to include that directly into Piwigo?
It’s really annoying that iPhone users can’t upload their videos plug-and-play to Piwigo because, like you said, renaming isn’t a clean solution.
It looks like FFMPEG supports that.
