How to upload videos? (Video upload failed)

Daniel Cilley Posted in General Discussion 4 months ago

I just tried to post a video on my timeline, but when it posted, there was no video. Is it possible to upload videos? Do I have to adjust settings somewhere in order to enable videos to be uploaded? What is wrong?

for those looking for a "free alternative" - I would suggest just uploading your video to youtube (or one of the other sites that OSSN supports embedding for) and then paste the url in the post box. It should automatically create an embedded player for the content. I recognize that isn't quite the same as you need to upload your video to a 3rd party site, but I think that's the closest thing possible.

Ffmpeg is always free utlility you can install on your OS, its just your hosting provider that didn't have this option!

This might be a weird question, but is there a free ffmpeg solution that we can use with ossn? like a ffmpeg service?

you won't be able to use the Video component without having ffmpeg installed and working.

I have my OSSN Network on a shared hosting plan that does not include ffmpeg features, i also have the v5.0 of the OSSN Network, if i pay for and download this video-upload component will it still work? Or do i need to upgrade my hosting service to a private one with ffmpeg features?

It make sense because the wall photos icon didn't allow to upload videos its only to upload photo.
