Videos in Gallery


Last night, I uploaded some videos to our Gallery2 installation.  Gallery2 supports videos by default, but there are some plugins that you will want to install:


  • ffmpeg - This plugin generates thumbnails for movies.

  • thumbpage - This plugin lets you select a time offset for the frame to be used for the thumbnail.


Even without those plugins, adding movies works fine.  The only things that don't work is the thumbnails don't appear, and playback doesn't happen in the embedded player.


Now that this is working so well, I think that I will be moving the movies that I have hosted on .Mac homepage to Gallery2.
