IP.Gallery 4.0 - Media Uploading

I've seen a few topics in our feedback forum asking how media uploads are handled in IP.Gallery 4.

The current version allows you to upload certain video files via a separate upload interface and displays them using basic embed tags which may ask the viewing user to download special plug-ins such as Quicktime to view them.

Video encoding is beyond the scope of IP.Gallery 4.0 as such functionality would need server level software to be installed. Similarly, to fetch a keyframe or thumbnail from a video file needs the same server level functionality.

However, media uploading and viewing has been much improved in Gallery 4.0. You can upload videos alongside normal photos and quickly add a thumbnail to the video. If you upload a m4v, certain mov files and flv files, these are played in a Flash video player much like YouTube.

I've recorded a quick screencast of the process used to upload a video taken from my iPhone to IP.Gallery 4.0.


As always, full screen HD is recommended.

Looking great :) Would be nice to be able to link to and play videos within Gallery from say YouTube as well - would save having a second app for this. Perhaps then including a screenshot from say YouTube or Vimeo.

(appreciate suggestions should be in forum - so will probably post there as well)

Not yet, although I am looking into some HTML 5 options.



Yes, please invest into the future. I know that flash currently is a necessary evil, but the support for unix-based systems is bad, really bad. So I would love every step towards HTML5 (in any case)

Great work Matt as usual :) If you can't put another player in, so be it. That's called life and I can easily work around it with 0 problems. Keep up the superb effort and I can't wait until the final version!

Awesome Matt,
Could you include it as an alternative the JW player, it has html5 capabilities already. Also, can you include a way we can add either or for players and if we can add the licensed versions of these players that remove their logos. I own my own license of JW player for example and when you buy the license it removes the logo. Same with Flowplayer.

Kind Regards

It would be nice if you add support for wmv files too via JW WMV player plugin from longtail video. Its very simple to integrate. I think flash and wmv are most common files. Real video is another one which can be easily implemented by adding simple html code. Please consider wmv and realvideo support.

People still use realvideo? :blink: I honestly haven't run into a realvideo in a page in years.

Yes realvideo is no longer used. But just a html code is all it needs for support. Most of the general galleries have it.
