Testing new preview player

Posted by on November 17, 2020

As some of you have noticed the support for Flash video player will end next month.

As a result of this the old preview screen player on TFDimension will be upgraded to a new (open source) HTML5 player which only supports MP4 video files.

This means AVI and WMV clips won’t play in it and need to be replaced with MP4 ones. Seen the huge amount of clips on the site this takes a long time you can run into some clips that aren’t converted yet. In these cases you have to download the clip and play it on your computer or smart phone / tablet to preview it.

Also the new video player is still in a testing stage to troubleshoot issues that can’t be simulated in a different way. This may cause some annoyance but it will be resolved in the near future.

Thank you for your understanding

Edit: the sound issue with the new web player has to do with the fact AC3 (and the new E-AC3) audio codec is not open source and thus not supported. To solve this all the clips have to be converted to MP4 with an open source audio codec.
