  1. When is Invision Community expected to get out of beta and becoming released? This month still?

    Storage is now more optimised for a specific application. If you need high IO for running applications use SSD. If you need bulk cheap storage for saving/serving photo/video files use HDD. You can install a webserver running php files from a 25GB droplet for 5$ and storag 250GB of files on a Space for 5$. https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/
  3. Is there an API Schema already? Would be nice to use API Client Library: http://www.django-rest-framework.org/topics/api-clients/#getting-started_1

    I assume screenshots still have to be manually uploaded separately? Very annoying manual step, and almost nobody does that. So the gallery overview just looks very ugly with a bunch of default thumbnails. External thumbnail generation would be nice, and perhaps transcoding of video files to MP4 for compatibility. http://coconut.co seems to have great API for these features. As transcoding and screenshots capture is barely offered by any web hosting company. Great feature btw. I dont agree... For my community I prefer to be independent of external video hosting companies like youtube for privacy- and other reasons. Some people here seem to be penny counting on 'expensive' storage and bandwidth. Bandwidth and storage have never been cheaper than now. This was perhaps an issue 5 or 10 years ago IMO. HTML5 video is well supported now on any platform so no need for youtube for compatibility reasons too....
  5. Is there a schema for the REST API? I cant imaging would it would not be available... Name Media type Notes CoreJSON application/coreapi+json Supports both Schemas & Hypermedia. OpenAPI ("Swagger") application/openapi+json Schema support. JSON Hyper-Schema application/schema+json Schema support. HAL application/hal+json Hypermedia support. https://github.com/core-api/python-client https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/extending-the-rest-api/schema/ Getting the Schema is pretty much step 1 in any REST Client: http://www.django-rest-framework.org/topics/api-clients/#getting-started_1
  6. Yes, I'm looking for this feature too. I'd like to increase perPage int The number of results that will be on each page
  7. The list in the first picture doesnt correspond to the second picture, for example GIF is present in the second picture, but not in the first. Attachment filetypes is not the same as filetypes in Gallery. The second picture are the standard accepted filetypes for images in Gallery. If you select enable upload of video you'll get a list of video formats too. How to change accepted filetypes in Gallery...??? Shouldnt be that hard, is just a list, where can i find that list?
  8. It doesnt work. That is only for attachments. Posting: Gallery:
  9. Nobody seems to be able to answer this questions here.... I have been asking this while ago as well:
  10. Hello, IP.Board & IP.Gallery has been traditionally not very eager to support videos because of compatibility issues with webhosters (almost none support FFMPEG). But since Invision seems to become in favor of supporting Third-party Enhancements . I would like to suggest to consider to support the HeyWatch API. HeyWatch downloads the orginal uploaded video file, converts the file to a HTML5 standardized video format, creates thumbnails and uploads everything to a specified FTP (or any of the multiple methods) target and then pings using a POST HTTP when everything is ready in 60 seconds or less. IP.Board must be able to handle this kind of process IMO. They provide a free tier of 1 GB a month. There billing afterwards is very reasonable..
  11. How to edit these file types? I dont want my user to upload any non standard files which cannot be played by all modern browser. Apparently some people are still using divx etc.
