is there any way to attach a video an exhibit slideshow without using youtube or vimeo?

by ftp'ing the video and linking it?

i would like to upload a video bigger than 2mb's (which is very small, frankly)

anyone have a solution?

So you tried uploading it as you would with any other file and it doesn't work?

Yes. I have.
i've tried a number of ways.

I've tried uploading as an flv, but it won't even start.
indexhibit's upload manager gives me a message that says "error filetype not allowed".

i've tried uploading as an mp4 and mov.
these will go through the upload process, but at the very end, will give me a message "error empty file upload result".

the video is compressed with variable bit rate (for streaming) and 44mb in size.
is this too large for the file manager or is it a limitation by the php server config?

i tweaked the file manager a couple of weeks ago, to accept larger files, following advise in this thread, because i was having difficulties with the limitations on image sizes (max 200kb).
i did this because some of my image files were slightly bigger than 200kb, they were around 240-260kb. this worked out great for image uploads and even for very small videos (2.4mb = 30 seconds)

this is the thread.
indexhibit.org/forum/thread/15780/

I'm on dreamhost which is a rather decent hosting service.

on that thread someone suggested something about editing htaccess, but i don't understand that part.

is there something else i should be considering?

Ok.
So I'm asking again...

What video file types are allowed?
what is the maximum file size allowed when using the upload tool?
I would like to add videos to an overlay slideshow.
currently it will not allow me to add any video over 3mb's.

I recently decided to investigate the "export to web" feature in quicktime 10.2

it will output an .mov file and 2 high and lo .m4v files with javascripts and stylesheets.

quicktime outputs an html file with instructions on where to put the javascript and css
here is the code that it tells you to put in the "head" of the page

  1. <script src="scripts/prototype.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
  2. <script src="scripts/qtp_poster.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
  3. <link href="stylesheets/qtp_poster.css" rel="StyleSheet" type="text/css" />

and here is the code that it tells you to embed into the body of the page

  1. <a href="LKSC_FINAL_high.mov" rel="qtposter">
  2.     <img src="LKSC_FINAL_high.jpg" width="853" height="496" alt="LKSC_FINAL_high"/>
  3. </a>

I was looking into copying the javascript into the "visual index" format following advice here, but i read somewhere that prototype.js conflicts with jquery.

indexhibit.org/forum/thread/15300/

Will this be a problem?
can i use these scripts or is this a dead end?

or.....if i can't use these scripts, can someone please explain what file types and sizes are allowed using the upload tool?

Thanks,
Ian

forgot to mention this.
I thought that if this is possible, I would copy what is supposed to be pasted into the body instead i would paste it into the caption.

Then you wouldn't be using the uploder tool but you would be embedding the movie.
Did you tell dreamhost about this? Maybe there's a limit from their end...

Hi Pindaros,
So you're saying that the uploader tool should be able to upload 40mb video (.mov) files?

That Dreamhost might be the one limiting the file size?

ok.
Just contacted dreamhost.
It appears the default limit on file sizes are 7mb's.
They've just given me instructions on how to increase it.

Thanks Pindaros!
