I have a dedicated server for my tube site. I asked my host to make my server video streaming ready. They responded with this:
Sure we just installed this:
The page has a full list of everything it ads.
Thank you, Customer Support
However, the videos still do not seek properly when you try to click forward in the video outside of the buffer line the video starts over again.
Yes and that is the issue. Since my server does not have ngynx or an apache mod installed to seek/stream flash player the videos do not allow my vistors to seek forward properly. The videos simply start over if this is tried so I have no choice but to disable seeking/streaming. Is there any way to turn off the flash component and make it only function as html5 player?
According to server requirements:
– your PHP version does not match, but it’s OK, we can generate a build for PHP 5.2 (please notify that directly after purchase).
– Imagemagick is required, so it should be installed.
– MultiViews option is configured per domain in apache config, so your host support should be able to remove if present
– Nginx is required to have video skipping in Flash player. But in HTML5 player it is not needed. You can use any other pure HTML5 player with KVS, because our player does not support pure HTML5 mode yet.
If you want to use the new theme with basic KVS package, we can reduce theme price to 50$. But please note that many theme functionality (like favourites, playlists, signup / login) are not available in basic package.
If you want to use the new theme with advanced KVS package, we can reduce theme price to 100$. It will be mostly functional except albums and subscriptions.
Can you also share link to your old project, which you want to migrate to KVS?
>> Are you saying that the reason KVS player is not seeking/streaming properly on my site right now is because Nginx is not installed?
Yes, any Flash player will not seek on your site unless server has no support for it. This support can be enabled with nginx. Probably there are also mods for apache, that can enable MP4 streaming support, but normally people use nginx. HTML5 player has another way of seeking, and it does not have any specific server requirements. But HTML5 doesn’t work everywhere, e.g. in older browsers. So normally in the real world both HTML5 and Flash options should work together to support maximum of devices and browsers.
>> Is your default theme fully responsive?
Our default theme is kvs-demo.com, it is very obsolete and not supported anymore. It is not responsive in any way.
So just as i suspected according to the developers of the video player there is no pure html5 mode. It is impossible to use this player on pure Apache without a mod installed.
Well the people who made the player have told me the opposite. I have a top of the line dedicated server and the player does not seek properly. After finding no solution I have beta tested three other players which are html5 based with flash fallback instead of the other way around and these players ALL seek perfectly with no issues. I appreciate your replies but you have a habit of passing the buck and not providing support. You pass the buck to server admins and even pass it to the original player devs.
My server admins have been working on this for days. It just does not work. videojs works, jw player works……
Unfortunately the theme I bought has your player integrated so I am now trying to work with the author to change it to a different player. Unless you have any other ideas as to why it is not working.
Direct quote from Kernal Video Sharing team ” Nginx is required to have video skipping in Flash player. But in HTML5 player it is not needed. You can use any other pure HTML5 player with KVS, because our player does not support pure HTML5 mode yet.”
Again “because our player does not support pure HTML5 mode yet.”
Admin is right, this issue is not related with WP plugin, but this is an issue of our player.
Player has primary Flash mode, which requires server to implement pseudo-streaming technology, which is not supported by Apache by default. Other players, which work in HTML5 primary mode – do not require this.
So basically you have 3 options:
1) Use another player with pure HTML5.
2) Use KVS player and disable video skipping
3) Reconfigure server to enable pseudo-streaming support (e.g. install nginx, or find appropriate apache modules).
