    custom cms: how to upload video?

    I'm using a custom cms and I was wondering if the standards cms there is a way to upload videos in flv format to use for example with jw player.

    I know that putting the script in a texbox and editing it will work, but I'm looking for something more user friendly.

    How do you upload videos with jw player (or other) in a friendly way?

    Many thanks

    This type of issue is the reason I stopped developing our custom in-house CMS and switched to an Open Source CMS; the popular CMS' available have modules that allow for uploading and/or converting multimedia files for streaming.

    The other part of the equation is making sure that your wen hosting provider has set up the server to steam video.

    Well... What type of file did you upload to your website? Most hosting providers by default, don't allow streaming of MOV, AVI, MPEG, RM, etc.... so if you are using that type of file, you will have to see if your host does provide streaming of them.

    Usually (but not always) FLV and WMV files will stream from a website without any further help.

    That's hard to say... What does the page that the video is supposed to play on look like? Are there any error messages?

    Strange that the You Tube one is working now...

    For the flv files it could be that the player can't find the file it's supposed to play. To play FLV files you need the FLV movie file and some sort of player which is usually a SWF file with a player component on the stage that is provided a path to the movie. If the player can't find the movie, it won't do anything.

    Well, you'll have to look at the source code of the page you are looking at and determine if the Flash player is linked to the FLV file tht you uploaded.
