Is there a way to view ogg audio files from a remote repo, eg. commons? I use MW 1.26.2, Extension:TimedMediaHandler 0.5.0 and $wgUseInstantCommons=true;. I can see Ogg video from commons but not ogg audio from commons repo. Extension:MultimediaViewer is disabled. Any hints to resolve this?

Is running maintenance/runJobs.php --type webVideoTranscode the only way to run a video transcode job? Can it be called from somewhere else; if so, how can it be prevented?

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

Thats normally the only way

TimedMediaHandler directly links to file even on HTML5 browsers after upgrading

4 (talkcontribs)

I tried Firefox and Chrome with a webm file and it would just direct link to the file and give the prompt.

TimedMediaHandler used to work before I upgraded from MW 1.23 to 1.25

Can anyone help?

Additionally, I am using the REL1_25 versions of TimedMediaHandler and MwEmbedSupport

This is the log I got while trying to find the problem

Never mind I found the cause of the problem at T91431 (talkcontribs)

Hi has your problem be fixed yet. The patch was backported to the REL1_25 branch. Please could you try the latest from the REL1_25 branch.

I wrote an MP3 handler to work with TimedMediaHandler (as a MediaWiki extension), based on WAV handler and extending ID3Handler. Unfortunately, under Internet Explorer 10, the player is removed on page load by some JavaScript. How can I prevent this?

$wgEnabledAudioTranscodeSet [] = WebVideoTranscode::ENC_MP3; is not enough to make an MP3 player appear. It needs a handler and I didn't find it in handlers directory, so I wrote one. (talkcontribs)

Ok maybe you could upload the patch to gerrit where users can look at it and find errors. and tell you if you need to edit other files to get it working.

You could try this

$wgMediaHandlers['audio/mpeg'] = 'Mp4Handler';
$wgFileExtensions[] = 'mp3';
Alex Mashin (talkcontribs)

Thank you, Mp4Handler really can handle MP3, and even under IE 10.

Is line 139 of WebVideoTranscode/WebVideoTranscodeJob.php the only place that can set staus "Source not found" on transcode job? (talkcontribs)

Hi please could you explain your problem including which MediaWiki version your using and which branch for timedmediahandler your using.

Alex Mashin (talkcontribs)

MW 1.25.2, TMH REL1_25.

My problem is that some of the transcode jobs fail with "Source not found" but may succeed next time. I inserted some code to give me debug information in the place I mentioned, but it is never called. I therefore suspect there may be another place setting the status "Source not found".

transcode_id INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY AUTO_INCREMENT in the file TimedMediaHandler.sql is not standard SQL. I use postgres and had to change it to transcode_id SERIAL PRIMARY KEY.

Further, transcode_error longtext NOT NULL must be changed to transcode_error TEXT NOT NULL for postgres.

It would be nice if this extension could be made to also support postgres, as this only needs the above changes. Thanks. (talkcontribs)

Hi yes the sql is for MySQL. Postgres is currently not supported but may be in the future.

$wgEnableNiceBackgroundTranscodeJobs and cron

Alex Mashin (talkcontribs)

If I set $wgEnableNiceBackgroundTranscodeJobs = true; , should I still create a cron job to run video transcodes?

Does anyone have a simplified walkthrough on how to properly install Pear and get it configured? The instructions on the TimedMediaHandler page are confusing at best, and no one seems to have any helpful info. I cannot get TimedMediaHandler working until Pear is installed and running. I am at a total loss. Can anyone please help?

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

You shouldn't need PEAR. file_OGG is included directly with the extension

Where this extension stores thumbnail images?

I've get stumbled with error when extension cannot save thumbnails in their storeplace. As I understand, there is incorrect rights on folder, but I can't find where this folder is.

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

It should be the same as normal thumbnails (although the transcodes are saved in a different directory named transcodes)

Most commonly this is the directory images/thumb/<number 0-f>/<number 00-ff>/<name of file>/

What's the source for MP3 patents expiring in 2012? A Big List of MP3 Patents (and supposed expiration dates) has some lasting to 2017. It is possible A Big List is wrong. Nevertheless, a source for 2012 would be useful.
