hi we can download easy dont need price with downloader you most use power code for download have you plan for this main
If you don’t need the selling feature of Video Merchant you can easily disable it by NOT providing it with your paypal email address and then it can be used for just playing and/or just distributing downloads for your videos. I hope that answers your question.
no i need only sell video i want know can you use powerfull code on futuer
Yes, you can.
How much would it cost to integrate this plugin into prestashop?
Secondly, if i own the website and would like to let artists to sell their videos on my site, is there away to create membership plans based on number of videos they can post/display and they subscript to sell their videos on my site?
Can you increase on the video types that can be played using your plugin? because i have tried to play the sample videos and every time i tried, i was getting video format not supported.
I will be happy to hear from you soon
As early as this-before making serious sales, the developer does not have time to respond to questions/comment in time
Hello ronelgon, I apologize for the delay in response. The answer to your question if it supports prestashop, no at this time it only supports WordPress. The answer to your other question on whether you can create membership plans, yes, that is absolutely doable, that would be a customization you would have to make to it though, because by default it is setup to work per website and not per user, so the code would need to be tweaked to allow user based videos so that they are separated. We can make that customization for you for $300. Also the admin interface which allows the uploading of files is currently only available to admins in the admin area of your WordPress website, so we would also need to create a frontend for them to manage their videos from the frontend so there is a bit of tweaking needed to be done for getting it to work that way, but it can definitely be done. Regarding your other question about increasing video types, sure you can manually tweak the code to allow other video types but the reason it supports the video types it does now, is because that is what HTML5 video tag supports, and support for each video type varies by web browser, so if you got a message saying the video type was not supported than chances are you were using a web browser that doesn’t support that video type, but usually .mp4 is a good compatible video type thats supported by all browsers. Some web browsers have issues playing ogg and ogv files, so I would recommend staying away from those file types if you can. Anyways, I hope that answers your questions Please feel free to let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Thanks for your reply.However, the charge i do not know why the charge for some basic customization tends to be so high and yet those needed extra features also happen to add value to your software
By the way, how is the video upload process when i want to go direct to my amazon s3 account, do i upload it direct to amazon s3 bucket and link it here or i upload direct through my site and it goes direct to my amazon s3 account bucket?
Also, is there an option site visitors to add reviews or comments on a video after watching it?
Lastly, can the video be linked to an account through the admin panel, such that when am adding the video, am able to link it to user on my website and that user can be able to respond to comments from those who would have commented on it?
By default Video Merchant is setup to work per site, not per user, so for us to modify the code to be user based will take us at least several days to implement, otherwise you are welcome to wait for a future release where we will build in the feature for the videos to be user based. But when that future version will be released, I cannot give you a date, because it is not on our priority list right now. Also keep in mind it is not just a matter of making the videos user based, but also adding some modifications to the player frontend so that users can manage their videos from the frontend, because currently only the admin can manage videos thru the /wp-admin/, so all though it sounds like something easily implemented, it is not and takes some time and coding modifications. The video upload process for linking to videos stored on Amazon S3 or Cloudfront is very easy, you basically just upload your videos to amazon s3 bucket manually yourself and then supply Video Merchant with the link to the video, which is great for people limited in hosting environment, if they cannot upload large files, you can simply supply a link to a file as well. All file fields in the admin can be a actual file upload or they can be a simple link, in which case the file resides on the remote server and is displayed from the remote server on the player. It is never downloaded to your actual web server. No, currently there is no comment feature or a feature for videos to be linked to users. That would be modifications we or any other PHP coder can make for you. Hope that answers your questions. Thx!
Regarding the video comments, you can always place a HTML5 videoplayer on a page and use a wordpress comments plugin in conjunction with Video Merchant as well.
Thanks for your quick reply. Please respond to these questions too.
1.Do videos only display only within that iframe or each video can be displayed on a separate or new page?
2.How is the buy video option work, does some one has to be logged in, in order to download the video or just clicks download and is taken to paypal pay to pay?
3. What other payment options available or can you integrate other payment gateways.
4.Can you add the feature to show the number of times a video is viewed and downloaded?
5.Can i create video categories and also link them on the menu for site visitors to choose whichever video category my wish to watch videos from (e.g. gospel videos, movies,etc)
Can the video player be branded? Can the video player only allow subscribers to play video not download videos. Thanks!
Hello, yes absolutely. It is fully customizable. Yes, it can also only play videos and not allow downloads or sales. To disable sales, simply do not supply it with a paypal email address and it will disable the selling functionality, and in order to not allow free download, simply set the price of the video to anything above $0.01 and it won’t be available for free download or sales. Hope that answers your question.
Thank you for your response. I purchased the video player, but I am getting an error message:
Fatal error: Class ‘NumberFormatter’ not found in /home/main4041/public_html/brez.tv/wp-content/plugins/video-merchant/video-merchant.php on line 1961
Can you tell me what I need to do?
Hello, This error is usually caused if you do not have php 5.3 or greator installed or you do not have php-intl and/or php-pecl installed on your webserver. Most webservers come with these, but if you are getting this error than your website doesn’t have the php-intl extension installed. We have updated the codebase to downgrade gracefully for these scenerios however that new package hasn’t been posted to code canyon.net yet, so we will email you the new package that downgrades gracefully when php-intl is not present. Thank you!
Does it work with mobile phone video and with dailymotion ect…
Yes, it does work with mobile phones. You are welcome to try it by clicking the live preview button.
i dont inderstand! Doés it work directly with Anny mobile phone?
All thé best
Yes, ti works with any mobile phone that supports HTML5 video which is most modern phones.
It’s not obvious how one BUYS a video?
The demo is all free?
Do they see part movie, a different movie, or nothing at all unless they buy?
Is it skinable? It’s a little clunky right now.
Hello! Please see the demo player on our website here, it demonstrates the buy option and free download option together http://www.myvideomerchant.com/ Regarding your other question…. Video Merchant has a place where you can provide a “Preview File”, this is where you would define which video should play in the player and it also has a separate “Full Quality” field which allows you to upload the file the customer would be provided upon purchasing that video. The preview file acts as a sort of mask, or demo for the full version of your file so your video file is never exposed to the viewer until they complete a purchase, then they are provided the full quality file that you provided in that section which could also be a zip file if you are providing multiple files with your video purchases. The player is completely customizable as well, it is all open source HTML/PHP and can be customized via the admin with simple css. Hope that answers your questions! Thank you.
Hi there. Quick presales question. Can you add videos from YouTube and Vimeo for use as the preview videos, instead of having to stream them off your web server? Thanks!
You can’t stream them directly thru youtube, however you can upload them to Amazon S3 or Cloudfront, or any other 3rd party CDN service and then stream it directly from there so you don’t have to upload any videos to your own web server. It supports third party url’s but they have to be directly to the video, in youtube’s case their share link links to their website, that is why you can’t stream directly off youtube.
Thank you. What about Vimeo? It would be very useful to be able to use a service for previews (like Vimeo) that doesn’t require a more expensive CDN.
Yes, I understand. I am not very familiar with vimeo and their API, but if they are anything like youtube where they don’t give you a direct access link to the video, then it won’t work direct;ly with their service either. It has to be a direct link like http://mythirdpartywebsite.com/myvideo.mp4 something of that sort
Just grabbed VideoMerchant and I love it.
after buying and paying for a file, the payment goes through fine but user gets an error message. ” Thank you for your order!
Order ID: F1E5C1A6C6A06997504490D2E6DB48DF
There seems to be a delay with your payment. Please check back later or contact customer service for more information.”
screenshot is here
buyer gets no file and no record of payment is registered in orders management. Please help. I have also sent you , via PM access to wordpress admin and ftp so you can take a look.
FYI i’m running the latest version of video merchant.
Hello, we have checked out your website and everything seems fine from the front end, so we are looking into this issue further now and will get back to you shortly with a solution.
In the meantime, you can set the order status for your customer to completed in the admin so they don’t have to wait to receive their video download.
Unfortunately, no orders show up in the admin, so i can not set the order status for the customer. I get the error with logged in or logged out buyers.
Hello, yes, I understand. The ipn feature is a very important feature. Luckily there is a way we can recreate the IPN message by going to the following page on your paypal account https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_display-ipns-history then that will show you the IPN history and if you can send us the IPN message information that paypal has listed in that page we can recreate and find the problem and fix that order. Please send the paypal IPN message information for that transaction to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond when we receive it and investigate the issue.
i have sent you the paypal IPN message from one of the transactions to the email provided. Please, note that the issue is not with one order, it is with ALL orders. Feel free to change the paypal email in my admin as the orders are only tests and the site is not actually live yet but still under development so you can test faster.
Hello, we have received the information and are looking into the issue now. We will get back to you shortly with our findings. Thank you!
Hey guys, Any update yet?
Hello uche40, our developer is looking into the issue now, however we cannot login to your wp-admin using the credentials you sent to us in the email. Can you please verify the wp-admin login credentials is correct?
We believe the issue might be occurring because yiour paypal email address you entered in your Video Merchant settings page is not marked as your Primary” email in your paypal account. The email you enter in the Video Merchant settings page must be the paypal PRIMARY email address registered on your paypal account. If it is a secondary email, then the IPN will not be able to verify. Can you please confirm this is the issue that is occurring with your system?
I have tried another order and have confirmed that the issue still remains. I have even tested 2 different separate Paypal email primary accounts in the Video Merchant settings page, still no luck. You can try logging in again with the same wordpress credentials to investigate. Thanks
Hey guys, Any update. I’ve been holding off my site launch because of this error. Where you able to figure out what is going on?
Any Update Yet?
Hey guys, Still waiting to hear back.
Hello, we tried troubleshooting your installation a few days ago, however our developer was not able to login using the credentials you supplied, however I have let him know that the credentials are working now so we will be looking into it again shortly.
Ok thanks i will be waiting for his resolution.
Any news on the issue?
Hey guys still waiting on an update. Any news?
Hello, we have not forgot about you. Please bare with us, our developer will contact you soon and setup a time with you to diagnose your system thoroughly. We understand this could be frustrating, and we thank you for your patience!
I have video files on my server – can I stream them from the server (so not youtube, Vimeo etc) – Thanks
Hi Tony, yes, you can. You can stream from your web server or any other 3rd party server as long as you have the direct link to the video on the third party website. If it’s on your own webserver then it will stream locally.
Sweet – thank you.
You’re very welcome.
I was wondering it your developer took a look at the issue yet?
There seems to be no resolution yet to my issue i am still unable to use the plugin. I still get the error for ALL orders. “There seems to be a delay with your payment. Please check back later or contact customer service for more information.”
It’s been well over a week and i’m still waiting on a resolution to the issue i reported. Can i get a fix?
I have the EXACT same issue as previous commenter: uche40. I don’t see any order records in the plugin orders section or WooCommerce. Makes it unusable. Hopefully an update will be made soon.
with the play button on the video can you able to not allow the video to play if the person has not purchased the video
It does not function like that by default. You would need to modify the html or place the player on a page that displays after the user’s purchase.
I bough it because you said it support 3rd party video stream, I do not see any where to access the player code
Hello, I install the plugin and I got a error. And if I was to us 3rd party video stream where do I put the video source iframe?
Does this have add to cart capability?
No, it only allows direct purchasing of each song
Greetings, I am Interested in the plug -in , but first I need to know , you may see the video after paying , like paying to see the video , not allowing download
Hello – I would like to use this great plugin and add a time limit for viewing videos after the purchase. Is this possible?
Hi – Do you have an ‘admin’ demo so we can see how videos and playlists are created?
Hey i’m interesting, i want to know can this be encode for live recurring video for www.craveo.tv
