Glad to see UNA unfold. I cannot stand Facebook.

Hi all.

I thought internet video was easy and everywhere. I use the WeChat app and video goes back and forth without delay.

However....My Host has informed me that 'video processing' is spiking their server and I have therefore been "throttled back" for a 24 hour period. Hours later, the videos are still not posting. I'm talking about a tiny video of 6 mb.

But.... after a few seconds, the video will play from the 'Edit Video' page IF you follow the link listed there. This means that the video file was successfully uploaded. 

This leaves me to wonder what kind of video processing is endlessly going on. And why so many resources are being used.

I have had a Dolphin installation with this same Host and the video worked fine with no long delays. Is there any way to process videos in such a way that it would have less server impact?

The cron job seems to be set up correctly and executes every 5 minutes.

Much thanks!

Hi all, 

The other file formats seem to work fine. 

I can go into the video edit mode and play the videos by using the link which was generated there. But on the main video page for each video, they do not work.

However, on the 'edit video' page is this working link: 

xxx xxxxxxx / bx_videos_videos  / druhjb6fnt7vc3b2ne8naugl9tv4qbtd dot mp 4

(Edited because: Your current membership (Standard) doesn't allow you to 'Post links'.)

I thought it strange that the word videos would appear 2 times in the url. Is this normal?

Any other ideas why videos are not working? I'll copy my re-write rules here below, too.

Thank you.

Help! I would like to make the 48 px thumbnail square instead of round. Actually I would like to give it soft radius corners. 2 or 3 pixels.

I cannot find the css file which governs this. I tried a search on the usual '-moz-border-radius:50%' but came up empty.

Please help me if you can. Thank you!
