Hi,
First of all thanks for this great site. It has allowed my wife and I to share our adventures with our loved ones. Our son who is the real traveler also uses your site and thats how we keep in touch. It's a great service.

I hope you can help me with a problem I'm experiencing. I'm having a problem getting the videos I up load to work properly. I'm not having any problems with images just videos. I get a successful upload message and I use the entry editor to paste them in, but they do not run in my blog and when I click on them in the manager they do not run there either. :( I have deleted and reloaded them. Renamed and reloaded them. Those things don't seem to make any difference. I'm not at all familiar with uploading videos or making them work on the internet. I'm using the Fliqz Service. Please take a look and let me know the error of my ways. My Blog is "The Adventures of Two Boomer Workaholics" and the segment with the video is the "Awash in History and Heineken"
Here is my video info, in case it's helpful.
M - Liverpool Day Before Game - 1
[video provider=fliqz videoid=18807]
M - Liverpool Day Before Game - 2
[video provider=fliqz videoid=18808]
M - Liverpool Monisterika
[video provider=fliqz videoid=18473]

Look forward to your help.

Apologies for the delay in replying Pete!

Could it have been that the problem was related to the fact that videos are not immediately available after upload? I can see from this clip and this one that the videos are now working. It could also have been a problem on the side of the video host that they have since corrected, but in any case the videos seem to be working fine now :)

Cheers,

Sam
ps. nice blog - got caught up in it!

Hi Sam,
As you pointed out the videos are working, and perfectly well I might add. I'm a bit embarrased by the the whole thing , but I'm also not above laughing at myself so I'll share it. First let me say that I intended to write you back after I realized the problem, but I guess I experienced a senior moment and forgot. Anyway I originally wrote saying I could not get the video I uploaded to play. I mentioned I could see the spot where it was supposed to be, but it was just blank. Weeell, that seemed true but it wernt. The truth is I use a browser called Avante and I like it a lot. Avante has many nice features. One of them is under tools and it allows you to shut off things like pictures, java script,...I'm sure you see where this is going... and video. Long story short, while I was in Greece I was experiencing bandwidth problems and shut down some funtions so I could connect faster. I thought I had turned them back on, but I had failed to turn the video back on. So I came to find out that the Video had been working for everyone but me. At that point I turned the video funtion on, uploaded some additional video. :) and life was good.

Thanks again for providing such a great site. I recommend it to everyone.

Pete

Hehe, that is a good story! I'll add to the list of things to ask members who have trouble with videos "do you have flash/videos enabled in your browser?"

Thanks for the kind words - we do our best!

Hi,
I'm using fliqz service to upload and view videos. We are using long days this fliqz service. Long days back, video ID looks like "14067" but now a days looks
like "551312849524645BCB7AA9EACE303F9F" the videoID(551312849524645BCB7AA9EACE303F9F) i can pass to service and get the video whereas the videoID "14067" i couldnt.
If i hardcode this videoid "14067" in player and test, its working.. Why its not working when i try to get through fliqz service ???

Throwing error as

The formatter threw an exception while trying to deserialize the message: There was an error while trying to deserialize parameter http://fliqz.com/services/080107:VideoID. The InnerException message was 'There was an error deserializing the object of type System.Guid. The value '14067' cannot be parsed as the type 'Guid'.'. Please see InnerException for more details.

Any help is appreciated :)

Thanks,

srivin2k4, I received a copy of your inquiry because I was still subcribed to this thread I began last back in June. I'm afraid that I can be of no help to you. My only suggestion id that you start a new thread where more people and probably the web masters will see it. They were responsive when I had my problem, even though I figured it on my own. Good Luck with you problem.

Our provider seems to have changed something without letting us know. Got to love a provider like that!

Being worked on with a fix in the not too far future I expect

The errors in the video area should all be fixed now (already earlier I'm pretty sure, but today for sure). Amongst other was pushed live today the option to upload videos in all of the following formats:

.mov, .avi, .flv, .mpeg, .wmv, .mpg, .mp4, .3gp, .dv, .qt, .asf, .mp3, .wav, .wma, .qcelp, .amr-nb, .movieclip, .mod, .3g2

I have run into an issue with sound on .3gp files (common on mobile phones), which looks like it's an error on fliqz side that I'll pass on. If you notice anything else weird with any of these formats, let us know!
