I successfully modify the album to upload FLV video, but since the album is using GD to make a thumbnail, I can only got a blank-white, all-the-same thumbnail for all different video (ONLY in FLV formats). However, my server (paid commercial server) has installed all video tools. Is there a way to make these video tools (especially the "flvtool2") to work with myAlbum-P to create the correct thumbnails? I do not need to use these tools to convert AVI to FLV, since I only upload FLV format. They are pre-made in my PC.


The server was previously installed the osTube 2.5; (http://www.ostube.de/) but since they have very restricted rules for free version, I want to use Xoops, it's still my favorite!!

Tools installed (by the provider, paid):

/usr/local/bin/mencoder
/usr/local/bin/mplayer
/usr/bin/flvtool2

and what I want to do is change myAlbum-P to use flvtool2 to make the thumbnail. Anyone help shade me a light?

Thanks in advanced.

I know in the include/functions.php contains the scripts/command to covert the thumbnail, and if I assigned the flvtools2 path to ImaigMagick, I guess there might be a way to execute it... I am digging to it.

After 10+ hours of study, I got the answer - for those who wants to use this decent module to hold your video (for me, FLV) and make thumbnail, first thing, put the FFMPEG path to ImageMagick field, (so I am telling myAlbum-p to use the path of ImageMagick but actually it is looking to run my FFMPEG, change to your own path!!)

then go to functions.php, mod the followings:

STEP #1

UNDER:
========================
function myalbum_create_thumb( $src_path , $node , $ext )
{
========================

FIND:

========================
return myalbum_copy_thumb_from_icons( $src_path , $node , $ext ) ;
========================

CHANGE TO:
========================
return myalbum_create_thumb_by_imagick( $src_path , $node , $ext ) ;
========================

STEP #2

UNDER:
========================

function myalbum_create_thumb_by_imagick( $src_path , $node , $ext )

========================
find:

========================
if( $width <= $new_w && $height <= $new_h ) {
========================

then use the followings to do the job:
(you have to change the path accordingly)
========================

exec( "{$myalbum_imagickpath}ffmpeg -i $src_path -vcodec png -vframes 1 -an -f rawvideo -ss 00:00:03 -y -s 200x150 $thumbs_dir/$node.png" ) ;

exec( "/usr/bin/mogrify -format gif $thumbs_dir/$node.png");
@unlink( "$thumbs_dir/$node.png" ) ;
exec( "rm -i $thumbs_dir/$node.png");


========================

It works perfect to me, and even works for rebuilding the thumbnails under admin.

Thanks to GI Joe for this wonderful module and now it 100% server my needs!!!!

hi luckylin.

Though I won't modifiy myAlbum-P itself, your post looks great.
It must be useful for people want to use FLV on myAlbum-P.

You will be interested with a module "cinemaru" made by tokita.
