any idea why some videoso nly play in chrome and dont in firefox or opera? using the videos that come with the download they work, but for other videos, i cant seem to find out why, is it because they are missing meta data? i am using some videos i downloaded from youtube, also using videos i converted myself. it would be a hassle to re encode 100’s of videos, but they dont seem to work, only in chrome

Hi Piglabs,

Try adjusting the “data-firefox-uses-flash” setting.

its not just firefox, its opera, safari, anything but chrome, they all work with your videos supplied with the download but not any others

Hi CodingJack,

Is the player swf file able to work as a standalone player? I’m looking to embed video files for sharing – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18903547/how-to-share-a-video-from-my-website-on-facebook-like-youtube

A flash player with direct video source would work.

Thanks.

Hi yisheng,

Chameleon isn’t a good option for a Flash-only player. Check out ActiveDen.net for Flash-only players.

Thanks! I’ll check it out there.

Hello friend,

first off I want to let people know overall this is a great plugin that increases the value of a website.

Although I am having an issue I hope can be solved – The videos seem to be taking way too long to initially load. Videos that are only 5-10MBs for example seem to be taking several mins. I am wondering if this is a common issue and what to do to fix it. thank you

Hi NowMoe,

Usually this is an issue when the Flash version is used and the video is missing important meta-data such as a “total time” value. In these cases, the Flash will load the entire video before playing it. The easiest way to get around it is to set the “data-firefox-uses-flash” to “false”. But the issue will still be present in IE8 (where Flash is required), so the best solution is to re-encode the video. Here’s some information about that:

If for some reason you’re still having trouble, send me an email from the form on my profile page along with a link to your site where you’re using Chameleon and I’ll try and help you further.

Hi Jack,

I got your plugin and its great experience implementing this to my site. There is one issue for which I need your urgent help. The issue is, while buffering the video, when I click on unloaded part of the progress bar, I want the video to start buffering from that point now, but it don't do that, rather it keeps buffering from the end where it was going by default.

Kindly help me out as soon as possible, I do not have much time to solve this issue.

Best, Ahmed Murtaza

Hi Ahmed,

The video player only allows for “scrubbing” what’s already loaded. It doesn’t allow for skipping ahead to a point that hasn’t loaded yet.

Hello. I bought your player, I like him. But how to make that data-video = ”../../ zone / video / ru.mp4” I could place a link on the page to play another video?

CodingJack

Hi Palmary,

I’m not sure I understand your question. But send me an email from my profile page and we can discuss in more detail and I’ll do my best to help.
