Hi,


I  created a standalone presentation in html but the videos are not played. The display shows the message "click here to download  plugin.

I  have unsuccessfully tried  MPEG1, MP4 and  h264 ts MPG2. With all of them I get the same message.


Can anyone help me with this?


Thanks!

Sebastian,


Please upload the source HTML so i can look at the code.  Is the video located

locally on the DMP or on a Web page?  Have you tried using Flash as the video

contact?


Thanks

The video is located in a content server, not on the DMP.

I play this presentation through the DMP using the (go to) URL option.


I am trying this option because I get a better performance in flash animation and ticker speed.


Attached is the html file.


Thanks

Sebastian,


I see..




the videos need to mpeg2 Transport Stream (mpeg2 or mpeg4 part10) or Windows Media (5.2 and stored locally).


Does the video work on the DMP if you use the complete VIDEO URL in the Media

URL field on the DMP-DM?

Yes,


This video works when I put it in a playlist and in Media Designer.

I have tried mpeg2 ts as well with same result.

The problem may be the videos are not being played in the "Video" Plane when you

use your URL in the prezo that is not DMD.


Try the URL (for VIDEO only)  from the DMP-DM using the 2 different fields:



- Media URL (Video plane)


- URL to be displayed (Browser Plane)


I think this may be the problem.


Another thing to try is to create a Test Prezo using DMD which includes

all of the different media objects and then export it to your external server

or to the DMP itself.  Then, select the appropriate URL for the location

on this test prezo and add it to the DMP-DM to see if it works.


This narrow down the issues...


Thanks

Media URL option works fine

URL to be displayed option shows the following options:


"What Bon Echo do with this file?

*Open with

*Save to disk

*Do this automatically for files like this from now on"


The presentation with DMD works fine on video but has low performance on image transitions and tickers.


Is it possible to download a plugin for the DMP`s browser?


Thanks

No, unfortunately, there are no ways to update the Browser on the DMP

or add plugins.


Sorry.

Hello.


Have you tried to make a  standalone presentation? Does  it really work?


On the one  hand, creating the presentation from the DMD, I have limitations on the  reproduction of images, flash and tickers (slow transitions).
On the other hand, creating a standalone  presentation it improved those aspects but I can not play video.


Do you have something that is currently is  running? How did you do it?
We have a 4400 dmp with v5.2  and do not have any decent presentation that actually works.


Thanks
