nuxeo 5.5 DAM : no preview for videos

Hi. I can't get previews for videos imported in DAM (nuxeo 5.5). I saw the supported files list in Nuxeo doc, so i tried with .avi, .mpg, .mkv… Are there players or plugins to install ?

Thanks for your help, Patrice

Which OS are you using? Which browser? Did you install FFmpeg? Are they any errors in your server log?

Have you installed ffmpeg, imagemagick, etc.?

What platform is nuxeo installed on? If it's Windows then these should be installed. If it's anything else then follow these instructions to install http://doc.nuxeo.com/display/ADMINDOC/Install+and+set+up+related+software

Any input file format supported by ffmpeg should be supported by DAM for building previews and storyboard navigation. ffmpeg should be installed in the PATH of the server. As other said check the logs for diagnostics on what's going wrong on your machine.

On the client side, no plugin is required as the video will be converted to a HTML5 video tag compliant format (e.g. webm, mp4 + h264 or ogg + theora). You can click the “convert” for to generate the other formats in case your browser does not support the default choice.
