View Full Version : Help with a photo gallery
9-22-04, 11:48 AM
I am installing Gallery 2 onto my website. It handles all of the images fine but in order for me to be able to post and use mpeg and quicktime pieces in the album it says to:
"FFMPEG is a graphics toolkit that can be used to process video files that you upload to Gallery. You must install the FFMPEG binary on your machine, then enter the path to it in the text box below. If you're on a Unix machine, don't forget to make the binary executable (chmod 755 ffmpeg in the right directory should do it) "
My questions are:
1) does powweb already have this installed on the server? if not can I install it myself?
2) If I can install it myself, where do I find it and where is the best place to put the binary?
I'm not well versed in *nix stuff so some of this is a little over my head.

no powweb does not have this installed. But I'm part of the gallery dev team and just so happen to have the compiled binaries that will work on powweb.
Then look at this file on gallery to integrate the mod.
This will automatically generate the first frame of the movie into a thumbnail for your gallery.
As default - gallery will support standard movie files. The thumbnail however, is a little generic.

I am trying to install gallery 1.5 on my website which is using PostNuke7.5. I am getting the following message when I run gallery/setup/index.php.

change the .htaccess and config files back to 644 and run the install.
777 no longer works at powweb for a permissions setting.
I *really* need to update that install tutorial.

I don't like resurrecting old threads, but does anyone have an FFMPEG binary that I can run on Powweb's servers? Or is it possible to have FFMPEG installed by a Powweb admin?

I'm looking for a pre-compiled binary as well.
If I could figure out how to compile, I would just do it myself.

I find that FreeBSD port of ffmpeg in /usr/ports/multimedia/ in its pacakge format. No comipled binary. Can Powweb just compile it? You have the ported package installed already. Or how do we compile and install it into our own cgi-bin directory?
Looking for ffmpeg binaries too!!!
EDIT: found it
look for ffmpeg
CHMOD file to 755 and dir to 777 after uplodaing to your FreeBSD server. Does not support wmv or mov thumbnail generation.
