Video Files in Rails App


#1

Hi,

Can anyome point me in the right direction for displaying Video files in
a rails app. I know there is a utube plugin for rails to display utube
video files but what i want is for a user to upload a video file and
have the start, pause, rewind, fastforward controls etc.

What is the best way for this. Flash plugin, Ajax library etc???

thanks

JB

If you are wiling to display flash video take a look at flowplayer…
it’s
pretty slick… controls, playlists, skinnable, streaming, and free :slight_smile:

The best bet looks like Flash Video included in the page with a little
javascript (UFO or SWFObject). Flash Video can has a integrated look and
feel - and you can do some neat sudo-streaming.

Think i will give http://flowplayer.sourceforge.net a try looks
promising.
