Since PP has built in video upload functions, will the software ever be modified to auto create thumbnails, and perhaps enhance this function a bit using ffmpeg??

I would beleive in the future this could very well be an option. The issue has always been being able to find a stable download to try and actually in the past it was extremely hard to get a working server install to be able to write this up. Also in that mix is hardly no servers run the software capable for this technology. Michael has had a few posts over the years on this.

I tried at one time to find a download to try since I have a server totally in my control but was never able to find a valid download. I know Michael I think tried getting it working on his server and had trouble. So I guess if I can find a valid download and able to actually get it installed maybe I can try seeing what can be done.

SourceForge.net: FFmpeg (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffmpeg/)

I see no downloads available.

Just curious, since most sharing sites are going to video uploading also.

I am not sure how it works, but my hosting tells me I do not have ffmpeg support, however the case. I have beta install of dolphin community software and it works fine for video playing, and it itself requires ffmpeg to run.. So I am not sure what the deal is.. on the fact why it works without the server support? I do know certain requirements are hard to get, as I had to switch servers twice already to get it all to work..

I know this is just the tip of the iceberg for an option, one that would be a nice addition in the future. Like I stated before, Photopost Pro standalone is a wonderful product, one that should be considered getting away from the Vbulletin version and marketed as an outstanding standalone product also. ;-) But that is my opinion..

On the download, is this the same stuff? ffmpeg.exe??

ffmpeg.exe for Windows (http://www.boonex.com/ffmpeg_win.zip)
ffmpeg for FreeBSD 6.2 (3 Mb) (http://www.boonex.com/ffmpeg_freebsd62.tgz)

Ffmpeg for Linux (http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/download.html)

Integrations aside Photopost Pro is the best gallery out there for the money.

As far as ffmpeg I will check to see if those links result in a successful compile of the software.
