Re: WWB on a Linux Desktop PC

Post by alex4orly » Sun Jul 26, 2020 2:41 am

Hi pajadt

Yes, I downloaded the example project, works OK, but:
1) It is using a video clip on YouTube - I prefer to use a clip on my own site
2) In the project I am working now, there is no need for sound

Rogerl - Can you point me to a complete html page with your example of using HTML-5, I will prefer that

Thank you both
Alex

Hi Alex,
On Pajadt's project, double click on the 3 column grid and where it gives the video address under tab "style", change that to your video details. Must be full site address to your video.
i.e.
https://www.yourwebsite.com/video.mp4

This way seems much easier than mine. I have uploaded an example to my test site addressing a video of mine. Note it is not a 16:9 video so not full width. see:

Regards
Roger

Hi Rogerl

That works - https://squadron-125.org.il/BGvideo.html as per your suggestion.

But, the video is in 16:9 therefore, not filling the screen

In contrast, the RZ video background here : https://squadron-125.org.il/RZvideo.html

Shows it in full screen background, is there a way for me to fix it?

Cheers
Alex

Hello Brian,

I installed Ubuntu 20.04 on my Windows Surface Pro 3 on a seprate partition, added support for Windows
But, I tried adding language " Hebrew" - but no way for me to switch to that language
Also, it seems that the email client - Evolution doesn't manage to login to my GMAIL account...

Any suggestions?

Is it possible that the Windows theme is blocking me from switching language, the Hebrew in the Language list is grayed out

Cheers
Alex

Hi Alex
as our friend Roger added the mp4 video, that's right now it remains the width that is necessary but it can't be given as an image to be a cover, for example if the video is shot upright, then it can't be horizontal unless it's arranged in to one of the video editors. So you take the arranged video to be the background.

Solution:
I would have to look at that video that is wide so we can arrange it to be suitable for the background, put that video somewhere to see what can be done

I tried Linux a few times but the big stumbling block for me was emails. Linux (Unix) has no email clients that I found which worked well with Office 365 - and as you have found, Gmail can be problematic too.

Hi Alex when you first installed Ubuntu 20.04 what was the primary language you set? English is generally the primary but at installation you can set others such as Hebrew. As it is greyed out it may explain why you cannot select. See the following that should help you.

Hi Pajadt,
I ran my vid through a converter and set to 1980 x 1080 but still don't get the full width.

Hi Roger

obviously you mean when you resize the browser it shrinks and then you see black above and below.
See the allowfullscreen option, is basically when you switch to css it's auto width

so in that case must add short css code

Code: Select all

<style>
#LayoutGrid1-video video {
    width: auto;
}
</style>
but you have to keep in mind how you reduce the size of the browser then it will not see the whole video in width as well as on youtube.

Maybe that posible in some script to do or maybe have RZ where calculate size by browser
I talk about how to get like when use Youtube

no, video is on server and it is 1980 x 1080. When I add your code video shifts to left and leaves one black space on right.

Well,
I copied the idea and uploaded my video clip to YouTube

https://squadron-125.org.il/BGvideo.html

It kind of works... BUT:

1) I don't like the idea of having it on YouTube, AND
2) Loop= 1, it does the loop, but between ending one round and starting the 2nd, there is an ugly black screen stop...

I hope there is a better option

Cheers

Hello my teacher

1) MY primary language is English, so I left it at installation time.
2) When it finished, I tried to add Hebrew by going through the process as described in the link - it remains Grayed out
3) In the installed languages, I have English, English(Australia), Canada, US ... at the end I have Hebrew
4) No joy here

Email, I tried Evolution, no go - so I decided to try Thunderbird, no go either

So, I installed Thunderbird on my Windows 10 Desktop machine - not a problem, works as expected
Same setup : https://squadron-125.org.il/thunderbird.jpg works on my desktop, but fails on Ubuntu.

So, what do you think?

Cheers
Alex

We get "Video is Private" when we click on link.
If you have purchased the extension from RZ then why not use that? I have something similar for full size background images that I purchased when re-developing my site which worked well and eliminated the white spaces on mobiles. Don't mean to take over your thread just wanting to see an idea actually work without having to purchase an extension.

Hi Roger,
I am conceptually agains extensions, I tried avoiding them if I can.
Each new version of WWB brings with it something new and from my own software development background, I know that I would "Fix" something and in the process screw up several other things....

I prefer, if I can to use whatever standard feautres I can find. In this case, this RZ extension works fine in WWB under Windows, but:
1) It takes it a long time to load (and I created a small resulution version to try and speed it up... but
2) This extension is not one of those listed as convertible option if I want to move to Linux, so then, what do I use?

I hope that maybe Pablo will consider in the next version update, to build this into the WWB HTML5 player

Cheers
Alex

I agree its nice to have things standard. I can't see extensions causing you too much grief as they are using standard html and CSS with jquery and Java scripts
Have you tried just using the html5 video? I tried a test page using that as full screen, loop and mute without controls than placing other text objects on the page and it all seemed to work well.
