Just came across your player today. Thanks very much for making it available. Any chance of making it pick up an entire directory as well as a single file or perhaps a wild card. This would eliminate the need for a playlist in some cases.thanks again for your effort
Chris, I like that idea. I'll try to incorporate it in future versions.
Thanks for great module :)I have one question. I use this moduele at my home page with youtube video, but I have litle problem. So how to set up this module, that backgorund is not black, or how to set up that backgorund is youtube front imagine. When some1 go to front page, can not see what youtube is this day at my site,if you want to know that, you must click to play and than youtube is start...Please help
Marko,The module settings in the backend allows you set the background colour and whether you want the player to autostart and shuffle on load.
This is what I see (black background) http://www.fotorola.com/uploads/4a96a1435a.png...but I want to see this http://www.fotorola.com/uploads/1130e7f2cc.jpg You cen see at secnd picture, that tehere are imagine, imagine is part of video, but in my case I yust have black background...hot to setup this player to be like secnd picture?sorry for my english
Marko, you can get your player to look like image #2 by loading the video from an xml playlist (which has the option to specify the thumbnnail image).In the module backend you will see a link on how to create a playlist: http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/wiki/FlashFormats
But I do not need play list :)I need yust one youtube video for my site :) so no help for my case? :(
Marko hit me up via e-mail - pxjunkie[at]gmail.com - I have a solution for you.
I am in need of some serious help. I have uploaded JW Media Player v1.4 for Joomla 1.5 but I can't figure out how to load the one single piece of music I would like to play on my website. I am new to Joomla and I really dont have a clue. Please Help!
@jcl1998 Please install the latest version of the module and refer to the example found ing module back-end (the tooltips also explain).
hi,Does this module support rstp (rm format) for audio stream?
HI, nice module ! But the None feature for showing the controlbar doesn't work. It will always go back to bottom. And I do not want to see any controlbar. The site just need to start the movie and no other stuff like the controlbar.Regards, Aad
@saifulsamad: It does support streaming media. Download version @avboven: I've never experienced that with version 1.5 but will look into that.
I wish someone could implement a technology where jw player would only play once; if an option is selected, for a session.I am using jw player for audio files that play upon arrival to my site, and also copies of the player in particular menu areas/sections.It would be great to have such an option so that when a user/visitor arrives at the site, and navigates away from the homepage, and then comes back to it, the audio would not autoplay. I'd even pay for such an email@example.com
@Walter: so you are saying that you want the player save the session and contiue playing the song they were last playing?
Actually I installed version 1.5.2 and uninstalled version 1.2 which worked. The install went fine but I get this error message: look at the bottom for the fatal error:CAN'T FIND CLASS JWPLAYER. I created a new module based on JWPLAYER and made a new position to place it in an article. When I click on the article this is what I get.Fatal error: Class 'jwplayer' not found in C:\wamp\www\modules\mod_jwmedia\mod_jwmedia.php on line 46
I've never tested it like that before (ie: in an article). I'm not sure why that would be because the class exists on line 46. I will try and look into this.
Hi Wrerm, if ModuleClassSufffix contains +,- or similar operators, console throws an error "missing ; before statement". This is unfortunately a problem, as many templates requires to define the module style in class suffix, using e.g. the style-rounded syntax. It will be really great if you have any solution or fix for this great module. Thanks, Paulo
Use underscore "_"
Hi Wrerm, thanks for the Underscore tip, but it will mean to break the template CSS. (i.e. the style will be either ignored with the Underscore or modification of the template will be required with all future updates problems) You can see this kind of styles in all YooTheme templates. Thanks again for your help, Paulo
I have worked with YooTheme's templates before. They are not so hard to customize. They normally have a 'custom.css' where you can add custom styles.I you don't want to use underscore just ad a # for the module suffix. This will cause the module name to be 'moduletable1' and the player 's1'.This should work perfectly ;)
Hi Gabre, as soon as the # appears anywhere in the ModuleClassSuffix string, it throws an error. I'll look into the issue futher, thanks, Paulo
Hi Gabre, the only real way to have the so variable properly defined is to consequently remove all dashes from the style names. Otherwise either style or script will not working. Thanks for great component, have a nice day, Paulo
You can use "_" or a number.
Hi, I am trying your JW Media Palyer. But I have some problems.I need playing this:http://radioagira.serverroom.us/radioagiraI have set this values in the backend:File Type: streaming mediaStream URL: http://radioagira.serverroom.us/radioagirabut it dosn't work. Could you help me please?Thanks a lot, Filippo
Fil the only thing I'm not seeing is the file type.Did you use the example in the back-end as reference?Check the line below to ensure you are using the right file formats:RTMP Streaming with the JW Player
Thanks for your answer. But I don't know the file type because the server is not mine. I would like to grub this page: cassatella dot com/radio-agira-diretta.html Could you please have a look? If you want you can remove the url after that you'll see it. I don't want to make spam on your site. Please help me
Fil you would have to contact the web admin for that site and see if you can get a playlist or filetype that is compatible with LongTails Media player.Form what I see it's a .asf file and I'm not sure LongTail supports that.
wrem, I thing that it's a x ms asf..so it's could be one of this:.asf video/x-ms-asf.asx video/x-ms-asf.nsc video/x-ms-asf.wax audio/x-ms-wax.wm video/x-ms-wm.wma audio/x-ms-wma.wmd application/x-ms-wmd.wmv video/x-ms-wmv.wmx video/x-ms-wmx.wmz application/x-ms-wmz.wvx video/x-ms-wvxDo you know if JW Media Player v.1.5.2 suports them?Please grub the html code from the page Itold beforeAny ideas?Thanks again, Fil
Fil you would have to follow the link I gave you earlier or e-mail LongTail for an extensive link.
Hello!Can I add multiple files(i'd like to include more than 1 youtube playlist)? How to separate them?
longtail's orginal media player - which drive this module - doesn't support that. You would have to use two separate player or create a playlist manually with all the video you want.
i really need help with uploading the songs. i don't know what i'm doing wrong. i installed the player and it appears just fine on the main page. i created a folder for the songs at joomla/images/mymusic/playlist1, where i uploaded all of my songs into the folder. as suggested by another joomla user, i typed in the 'file' field the following: ../images/mymusic/playlist1/playlist1.xml or /images/mymusic/playlist1/playlist1.xml orimages/mymusic/playlist1/playlist1.xmlusing local file and xml playlist. none of the combination seems to work. what am i doing wrong? and what else am i supposed to do? thanks.
Susan...I've started to address you issue here
HiI cannot put this extension to work. I get the error:Class 'jwplayer' not found in C:\xampp\xampp\htdocs\modules\mod_jwmedia\mod_jwmedia.php on line 46Any help, please?
hi! i would LIKE to download your code for joomla, BUT is there somewhere where I can see what it looks like first?
Sorry I don't have a demo up and running for the player...
Hi,Thanks for this great extension. I do seem to be having a couple of problems, though. I'm trying to use a YouTube playlist, and it seems to load the list just fine, all the titles show up. When you try to play an individual video, though, the preview image loads, and then the "loading" icon just goes and goes and the video never actually loads.The other problem I'm having is that I'm using the silvery white skin, and would like the playlist to display on the right side, but it is getting cut off. I don't see a way to change the css to adjust the display.Can you help with either of these problems??thank you so much,M. Snyder
What version are you using?
Hi,I'm using 1.5.3.Turned out the not playing was just a caching problem and fixed itself.I would like to have the playlist show up on the right hand site without getting cut off, though.We went live today so I can give you the url now:mountaingoatvt.com/aboutus/goattvThanks!
It's good to hear...you can get the playlist on the right by making the player wide enough(ex.player width: 600px, display: 400px, playlist: 200px)
Hi again,Yeah, I tried to just make th payer wider at first, (600) but all it did was stretch the whole player that wide - still not playlist. When I tried to add your code to the module configuration under "width", it wouldln't display anything at all. Is there some other configuration setting that I'm just not seeing?Thanks for you help!M Snyder

fab mod - keep up the good work. Scalable/re-sizeable thumbnails would be a great help in future version?
