Thanks EricProchnow, :)

Hey guys…glad to see that you are still making awesome things…one question, if a user uploads a video file to the WP Media Library, then this plugin will automatically convert the file via FFMpeg into Mp4?? Does it save the original or only save the new one? I guess that is two questions. LOL :)

Hey Robert, great to hear from you again, :). It’s been too long. Conversion only works via the plugin’s own upload feature, so converting through the standard Wordpress Media Library hasn’t been enabled yet. The original copy is deleted after conversion and compression to save space. Only the new one is saved.

Hi there, I am building a wordpress buddypress site and would like to add video uploads, I have installed FFMpeg on the server. I need something to upload the videos for the members of the site, queue up the files to avoid overloading the server, convert into html video compatible format, add a thumbnail and add it to the users timeline. This seems to go a long way to do this, are you planning to do anything like that?

Yes, BenFegore the Envato license allows you to adapt the code for you own projects.

Thanks for the quick replies. Very helpful, I’ll let you know how I get on :)

Thanks for your purchase BenFegore, :)...I’m here to support every step of the way.

Very Nice Work :)

Hi, Can this plugin automatically create a thumbnail of videos uploaded remotely to media library using WordPress android app?

What is the difference between this version and the one on Wordpress plugin directory?

Does the original file sit on the server after conversion???

Hey profango, the original file is deleted.

I need my web members can add customized text in my video and download it. do you have any option in this/other plugin

Hey jeelconsultancy, sorry for the late reply. At the present moment, the functionality you described is not available with this plugin.


is it possible to convert a large mp4 to a small mp4 h.264 with customized a size of 534×300 with 20fps?

Thanks in advance!

Hey. Unfortunately, we haven’t built frame rate and size adjustments into the functionality yet. Thank you for your interest. If you have any more questions, please ask.
