My videos app is working great and I'm really happy with everything apart from the size of the thumbnail created in the discussion topic?

I assume you have ftp access to your files? I can probably give you a patch to modify this until a future update adds this.

We use this mainly for uploaded video and it is unfortunate that it doesn't automatically create a thumbnail for the video using a screenncap.  That said is there a way to disable the option to upload a media poster?  Most of our users think that is a thumbnail and are constantly uploading thumbnails to media posters which makes the admins have to go back and create them.

You can disable this in the group permissions.

Couple of things having installed, used, and really liking this plug in

1) All my posts made in forums automatically are made by random members and not the member I designated in the admin CP? That causes great confusion as members post 'I didn't post that!' etc

2) It would be great for an embed in forums instead of a thumbnail

1) For the rss import?

2) There is an %EMBED% quick tag you can use in the video topic instead of the thumbnail.

@Michael.J: Can you please add a way for imports to bypass the topic creation, meaning that we can disable them from being created.

If a topic hasn't been generated, via the video page - could it be generated by someone with moderation powers?

I plan to import videos from the community and, it would mean loads of discussions are automatically generated. Some will be pointless, so disabling it would be wise but at least I can click to generate a discussion from the front if I so wish.

Until I add a setting for this, I could probably provide a file edit that skips topic creation for rss imports if you want?

When i contact IPS, they say "contact plugin support" 😅

Were you able to resolve this?

I've been a longtime user of Videos. And the renewal price is $20 per year. But when I go to renew it, I only get the option to buy it again at $45 per year.

I don't really have that kind of control over the marketplace. So you will need to contact them to see why you can't renew. If they can't help, I'll process this manually via Paypal if you would like.

Confirmed issue, new patch coming shortly to address any IPB 4.1 issues.

Mike, just a quick thank you for all your continued hard work, dedication and great customer service. You seemed to get 4.2 compatibility updates out for Videos System really quickly, meaning we could

Noted for next version. Noted. If I'm understanding this right. Then no I don't believe it would work as there is no current Pages integration like you need. I'll save it for a fu

Yes, please.

Apologise for being a pain whilst you're busy, but I would appreciate this edit as I can manually add videos I want to discuss. 🙂

I find error on the code.

My website is on https by default.

When I upload a video file (local file), the wide value can't work.

I check the error browser console and I see the problem. 

http://vjs.zencdn.net/6.6.3/video-js.css is not on https.

I change it on the file applications/videos/modules/front/videos/view.php

Now it's working!

Okay, I got the RSS feed working like this:

	echo('<media:group><media:content url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=');
	echo('" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="390"/>');
	echo('<media:thumbnail url="https://i4.ytimg.com/vi/'.$vid.'/hqdefault.jpg" width="480" height="360"/>');

I just updated to the latest 4.5 Update and I can't install, I get the "Something went wrong. Please try again."

Last time I had upgraded an old community and I'd like also to update your video app, but when I try to update over the marketplace I run into this error:

If updating through the ips marketplace, you'll need to contact IPS regarding this error. I don't have much control over the marketplace updates.

Bug report noted, thank you.

It seems that's a private video? If so, then it can't really be added as there is no oEmbed data to generate the video.

I am seeing a number of bugs but the application is nice to have.

Can you please report them here - https://www.devfuse.com/forums/bugs/videos/

Or list them here so I can fix them in a future update. With IPB 4.5 updates nearly done, I will be able to start on bug fixes again.

What dropdown field are you trying to change?

Since I paid for the custom development/creation of "Topic Attach Thumbnails" by any chance could you send me an updated version that works with 4.5? I see it on the marketplace but I haven't been able to get in touch via PMs. Thanks.
