Closed Bug 439358 Opened 14 years ago Closed 14 years ago
Video code on Firefox page can't accept other videos than the english one
The js code to call a video on the firefox code lacks documentation on how to call the video: http://viewvc.svn.mozilla.org/vc/projects/mozilla.com/trunk/js/firefox-video-launch.js?revision=15399&view=markup We have 19 subtitled videos in both flv and ogg versions that will be hosted on videos.mozilla.org, I need to know how to have our pages on mozilla-europe call the subtitled videos. Currently, the only thing that it can display is the youtube video with Asa and crop circle.
Flags: blocking-firefox3? → blocking-firefox3+
I've got a request into the flash develop to help us get it set up such that we can pass in the URL of the video into the SWF file.
any news on this? This is blocking the release of the new site for Europe.
I notified the people at the Royal Order (agency that we worked with to create the new site and the video) and they have a Flash guy working on it right now. I conveyed the urgency of the issue, so I'm expecting this to be resolved today. Will keep you posted.
We've got an updated version of the player that lets us pass in another video. Pascal, you can update the video in en-US/firefox.html on this line: var player = new FirefoxVideoLaunch('launch-video', 'video/playerWithControls.swf?flv=videos/FF3_Screencast_Draft4.flv'); replacing "videos/FF3_Screencast_Draft4.flv" with the URL of your video. You can also add the following lines to the html file right before the "var player" line to localize the text: var PLAYER_CLOSE_TEXT = ''; var PLAYER_NOFLASH_TEXT = ''; var PLAYER_ALT_TEXT = ''; See the defaults for each at the top of js/firefox-video-launch.js The problem we have now is that the sub-titled videos are a different height/width, and it appears that the player expects a single standard size. I'll ask them about this.
ok, I am going to try in an hour or so. Note that I have only added subtitles to the video, they have the same height and width as the original one I was given for subtitling.
now with r15798, you can re-set the height/width of the flash player per-page.
Filed bug 439560 for security hole with new video player
I have integrated all the latest changes and it works, it now picks up the subtitled videos, but the width/height does not really work, if I increase height to the size we use, I loose the download link to the ogg version and the change in size does not change the real width/height ratio of the video so the text and image are a bit distorted.
Pascal, you should be using playerWithControlsCaps.swf, not playerWithControls.swf. That version is setup for the video sizes with captions. It's in includes/flash/
[12:19] <beltzner> ok, now that the files are copied, anything else to do on 439358? [12:19] <pascalchevrel> no Marking FIXED.
