Need help with thumbnail / preview image was created by ninja900rider
Hi,

First off great player. I'm new to it from today and things seem to be running good except that I can't get the preview image to work. I've searched the forum and did try different crossdomain.xml files but no joy. The file name is named the same as the first video of the playlist with .jpg. It's in the same folder. Same resolution 640 x 480. The link in the settings has the full http://www... address. Any ideas? Here is the link:

www.worldtrip.ca/videos.html

I've taken out the crossdomain.xml for now. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

PS.. While I got your attention.. I take it the height of the player in pixels in settings includes the height of the playlist.. leaving the player to load higher at first and then quickly readjusts. Is this right? Thanks again.

hi,

This parameters is for single file used, for an xml file it's better to use the thumbnail inside the xml file, using the meta tag associate.

about the height yes it's right

Height of the Player (when playlist body is load) = Height of the "bodyplayer" + Height of the bodyplaylist ("Size of the Playlist")

hi,

also i notice that you set the file as single file or it's an RSS Link

"Select origin of the playlist/Single File" ---> "RSS Link"

Thanks a lot for the help! I'm unfamiliar with XML coding. I take it you mean the playlist xml. You suggest putting the thumbnail inside the xml. What is the coding to add and where? I'll change the module settings to RSS. As all of this is located on my site I take it I don't need a crossdomain.xml. If I do need one I got a copy from this forum. Great product, great forum. Thanks! :)

Your coding is quite good you just have to add a tumbnail for each item
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<playlist version="1" xmlns="http://xspf.org/ns/0/">
  <trackList>

change as you want the tumbnail file for each one

about the crossdomain.xml, iit's always better to have one, it resolve a lot of stream issue who came from adress, like :
http://www.worldtrip.ca, http://worldtrip.ca, https://www.worldtrip.ca, https://worldtrip.ca
