Hi Tom and friends of Video5-Recipe!
It seems to me, that only first calls of
on a page work properly, while second and further calls don't show an poster/preview image. (Video is played, but no poster.)
Also the produced code is different:
First occurance on the page produces - quite correct:
<video width="640" height="480" preload="auto" controls="controls" > <source src="http://path/to/test.mp4" type="video/mp4" /> <p class="novideo">Sorry, your browser does not support HTML5 video.</p> </video>
Second occurance on the page produces - somelike unexpected:
<video width="640" height="480" preload="auto" controls="controls" poster="http://path/to/test.gif"> <source src="http://path/to/test.mp4" type="video/mp4" /> <source src="http://path/to/test.ogv" type="video/ogg" /> <source src="http://path/to/test.webm" type="video/webm" /> <img src="http://path/to/test.gif" width="640" height="480" alt="test" /> <track src="http://path/to/test.vtt" kind="subtitles" srclang="en" label="test" default /> <p class="novideo">Sorry, your browser does not support HTML5 video.</p> </video>
My question: Is that a known issue, or does it seem to be any misconfiguration of my page?
Thanks for your helpful answers!

The recipe doesn't seem to support subfolders.
Or, am I doing something wrong?
It will read the video in...
but it won't find the video in a subfolder.
Setting the recipe's "VideoUrl" option to...
makes no difference.
I 've tried...
(:video /some_subfolder/myvideo.webm :) (:video /some_subfolder/myvideo :) (:video ./some_subfolder/myvideo :) (:video some_subfolder/myvideo :)
but hey didn't work.

Thanks for the recipe. Does it support <track> tag to allow embedding of subtitles in SRT format? Would it be hard to implement in case it does not?
All the best. Jakub

In using this recipe, it appears that either support for uploaded files is limited or the function is a bit buggy. I have been unsuccessful in getting an existing mp4 video to display but instead continue to get the error message:
"No video file named Antenna_installation.13.mp4 or Antenna_installation.13.ogv or Antenna_installation.13.webm found"
Here is the wiki markup for three separate failed attempts:
(:video Antenna_installation.13.mp4 width=640 height=480:) (:video Antenna/Antenna_installation.13.mp4 width=640 height=480:) (:video Attach:/Antenna/Antenna_installation.13.mp4 width=640 height=480:)
I am guessing that if the video doesn't exist in the uploads folder directly attached to the wiki page, then the recipe fails. I have tried numerous workarounds (shown above) to specify a path but none have worked. Ideally, using the Attach: syntax would make usage consistent and flexible.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
PLEASE PUT YOUR ENTRY DIRECTLY *ABOVE* THE [#usersend] LINE. The format should be: asterisk, either + or - in parentheses, comment, your name or profile link For example (obviously without the at the beginning): * (+) comment-text name?
I have the problem that the Video is not shown on the Web-Page
I allways get the Errormessage like "No Video with the supportet format is found"
But the Video in Format mp4 is stored in the right Directory.
The Tag in my page is:
(:video myvideo.mp4 autoplay=0 controls=1 loop=0 muted=0 preload=none width=600 height=295:)
The include line is includet in my Config.php.
I hope someone can help me.
