MP4 Video, Iphone Playback, Writing + Music out front

"The chaos of the art of the furry fandom is one of its strengths.
      Unlike other fandoms, the gods of this cult were made by its members."

Here's the fun updates to report this week! We're always getting better!

MP4 Video and HTML5 video tags now supported

Videos can now be uploaded in MP4 format. This is in addition to the existing FLV format support. Our Flash-based player will handle them, or for devices without Flash support, they will be played using the HTML5 video tag method. HTML5 support and the video types you can play depend on your browser and installed modules. Find out more about HTML5 video; http://www.html5video.org/

MP3 Audio and MP4 Video playback now on Iphone

Iphone users can now play MP3 Audio and MP4 Video directly in Inkbunny, without having to download the file first. Note that this will only work for users with Iphone versions 3GS and above.

Writing and Music now on the Front Page

Writing and Music now have their very own sections on the front page. You can use the links in those sections to quickly browse the latest Stories and Tunes. Remember you can also find uploads by type if you click one of the Quick Search links at the top of the Search page. https://inkbunny.net/search.php

HiRes/Sales MD5s now Private

Some artists expressed concerns about making the HiRes/Sales MD5s public. So we have changed the display so the HiRes/Sales MD5s are now only visible to the submission owner.

The submission owner will still see them listed on the Submission page in the same way as before, but that section will be hidden for everyone else.

The HiRes/Sales MD5s can still be used by anyone to find the original post on IB via Search, but they have to know the MD5 hash first.

More details here! http://wiki.inkbunny.net/MD5

Other Updates and Fixes

* Fixed: Some users reported problems Faving submissions. This was caused by the new Share buttons on Journals and Submissions. They were causing Javascript errors due to a conflict with the Prototype JS library we use. We added a hack to fix this until Addthis.com (who make the button widgets) solve the problem.

* Fixed: Custom thumbnails in the Music Player used to get scaled up to 200px wide and high, no matter what original size they were. Now they display at the correct original size.

* Fixed: Some interface tomfoolery and chicanery made Trouble Ticket view break for Admins in IE. Most of the admins don't use IE, but I fixed the problems anyway like a good boy.

* Fixed: There was a problem with uploading custom thumbnails for about 24 hrs after the last update. That issue was resolved!

And that is all. Now I have to have a cold shower because my hot water system is broken. ;.;

Thanks for your support!

I dunno if this is the place to post feature requests, but... would it be feasible to provide a 'loop' button in the video player? Some vids were really meant to loop. ;)

(Even nicer would be an 'auto loop' option in the submission details, but I'll take what I can get. ;) )

I also don't know if this is the place for bug reports, but when I replaced my video file (but didn't provide a new thumbnail), my old thumbnail vanished and was replaced with the standard "play triangle" icon.

Yeah you need to upload the custom thumbnail again if you're replacing the whole file. It creates a whole new record for that upload.

Howeverm if you just replace the thumbnail later, you can do that without uploading the whole video again! :3

Also, what do I need to do to get MP4 videos to play back on iPhone, exactly? Exporting from Quicktime, I've tried "MPEG-4 Basic", "MPEG-4 Improved", and "H.264".... only H.264 works in Flash, and none of them work on my iPhone at all (they all give the 'no sign' on a 'play triangle' icon.) Can you recommend an exporter (and export settings) to get the desktop-and-iPhone playback you described?

Thanks. :)

Ooh what version of Iphone do you have? We tried it on 3GS and 4 and it played in the browser. :O

Iphone 3G showed the X symbol and you have to download the file and play it in another player.

iPhone 3GS, OS 4.1

Seems like you've found the submission in question -- does it work for you on the phones you tested on? And what encoder did you use for the tests it *did* work on?

I <3 the Android more than the iPhone for sure. Didn't have to do anything special to get videos and music playing on it. xD
