Cfvideo

Hello,

I have a use for cfvideo, however my host is unable to install the
extension on Lucee 4.5.

Here’s the feedback:

It looks like there is currently not an extension that will work with Lucee

for cfvideo. I tried manually installing it on the server and using the
helper extensions to make it work, but it wouldn’t register. If you try to
install the extension from the zip, it will error out saying “destFile”
isn’t in the scope.

The docs don’t say what version of Lucee this applies to unless I’m missing
something. Is this a new feature in 5.0?

http://docs.lucee.org/reference/tags/video.html

Can anyone point me/us in the right direction to get this working?

Thanks,
Scott

Does anyone know if cfvideo actually works in Lucee?

Documentation is frustrating, no reference to minimum version it is
intended to work with. No reference to get the extension that does not
appear to be included from initial install.

When I try to use the cfvideo tag, I get the following error:

The video components are not installed, please go to the Lucee Server
Administrator in order to install the video extension

Then I go to the administrator and all that is there is CFBeer, CFCSV,
EHCache Remote, Infinispan (Remote) Free, Memcahed driver (BETA) and
MongoDB Datasource and Cache.

I’m running Lucee 4.5.3.006 on Tomcat.

Thanks.On Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 4:21:15 PM UTC-5, Scott Widmer wrote:

CF Video gave a lot of issues (in converting video). It was good at the time and was used in a few projects but the underlying library (ffmpeg) changed a few things and I don’t think it has been updated.

Since then there are a number of SaaS providers that can help that I would recommend using instead of your own video processing:

https://aws.amazon.com/elastictranscoder/ https://aws.amazon.com/elastictranscoder/

http://www.encoding.com/ http://www.encoding.com/

https://zencoder.com/en/ https://zencoder.com/en/

And there are some others that I saw recently that I saw and will post here if I can remember them! (sorry!)

I hope that helps!

Otherwise it would be a matter of getting the video extension working, depending what you want to do with it.

Regards

Ha, I get, no big deal. I was pretty pumped yesterday when I searched for
“cfvideo” as a hail mary and found there was such a thing in Lucee. Then
the letdown.

Can you just confirm that I would need to install ffmpeg on the server and
then connect to it with cfexecute (like you suggested earlier).

Thanks,

Yeah, making the difficult simple is sometimes rather difficult. when I
was at Railo I was trying to update the video extension and lost a lot of
hair :slight_smile:

So I get it, but personally, I don’t think I am going to go down that
avenue, there was a lot of issues about how the extension worked (both
technical and non technical) hence I am pointing you in the more painless
direction of asking someone else’s service to do it for you :slight_smile:

Mark,

Thanks, I really appreciate pointing me in the right direction. It’ll take
me some time to get a grip on what needs to happen and get things setup I
guess.

The following is what I consider simple. :slight_smile:

<cfvideo
source1="/comp/source/Video_1.mp4"
action=“concat”
source2="/comp/source/Video_2.mp4"
destination="/comp/destination/Video_combined.mp4"

I’m actually trying to use the concat action. I need a simple solution to
combine two source files together.
