The process of installation
Firstly, you need to have the domain name and hosting with the FFmpeg support. You have to determine who will host the website because sometimes you might receive free domain name. Some of the hosting companies will host your website free of cost or for a nominal fee so that they will take advantage from your website by putting up the advertisements. Consider a good package for your website sp that it handles all type of queries.

You must download the program from the internet.

Open the FTP program and long into the FTP account. The entire content of the PHPmotion into your or public HTML folder. Allow the PHPmotion to overwrite anything that is available there and depending upon the connection speed, it takes some time and after uploading, proceed next.

If the hosting works with the cPanel, login to the cPanel account. Most of them have CPanel, some do not have this facility, and you can go with MySQL database. If you have a MySQL account already, proceed further with the next step.

Now you must change the mode using the CHMOD command. It is a shell command in UNIX and in unix-like environments. When it is executed, it changes the file and mode of them.
Another best way to do is by using the cPanel (it provides the graphical interface).

FFmpeg – an integral part of VLC Media Player

June 7th, 2009 | Posted under FFmpeg Hosting, Web Hosting, Web Hosting Tips | No Comments »

In the world of multimedia, video has evolved a long way in the last few years. There have been different formats coming up each day, with each bettering the other. However, the problem has been to use different formats in one media player itself. Mostly, it has been a frustrating experience for users, having to download separate codecs for different formats.

However, VLC Media Player has been able to solve the problem with the help of FFmpeg, a set of software library that enables recording, uploading, streaming of video files, apart from its main feature: converting one video format to another. FFmpeg is free and open source software, much like VLC, which has implemented parts of the project and is now reaping the benefits of it.

VLC is a media player that supports a lot of different audio and video formats, along with file formats like CD and DVD, and protocols like HTTP, UDP and RSP. Its main feature is to stream over the network and provides the user with the ability to transcode and save them in various formats. It is a cross-platform player, which makes it possible to be used in most operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, GNU/Linux to name a few. It is also licensed to GNU General Public License (GPL) which gives developers the freedom to view the source code, edit and then distribute the modified version without any copyright issues.

The feature to support so many video formats is due to the fact that it includes a lot of codecs from the libavcodec library of the FFmpeg project. However, it has its own muxers and demuxers and therefore doesn’t include the libavformat library of the FFmpeg project. However, VLC also supports a few codecs that are not included in the FFmpeg’s libavcodec. However, the inclusion of libavcodec allows the player to support DVD Video and MPEG-4 playback, along with MKV and OGG file formats without needing external codecs.

VLC also has certain features that set it apart from others in the market. It can play videos that are incomplete or damaged in nature. Thus, if an user is downloading video files using a torrent client, he or she would still be able to view the content in bits while downloading. Moreover, it also has the ability to play TS files while they are being transferred from the HDV camera via cable, which makes it possible to view the video while being captured.

This free and Open Source Software is the talk of the town with so many features associated with it. However, the best feature of the player is attributed to the FFmpeg project, and with the development of the FFmpeg project, the VLC Media Player is sure to get better.

FFmpeg – The perfect tool for hosting video sharing sites

June 7th, 2009 | Posted under FFmpeg Hosting, Web Hosting | No Comments »

With the introduction of Web 2.0 standards, websites are now completely different from what it used to be a few years ago. Each day, new ways of being interactive are being discovered and implemented with the help of a host of languages and APIs. Websites are now more collaborative, with users given the power to add content directly in the sites. Naturally, there have been a huge number of sites that offers video sharing and live streaming. Allowing video sharing makes it more engaging and interesting for the user to visit a site, which in turn gets converted into a huge traffic volume for the site.

The web admins of such video-sharing sites are now choosing FFmpeg hosting plans to meet their needs. FFmpeg is a free and open source software library containing tools and plug-ins that can convert video files from one format to the other, upload and stream video files. The use of this software library in the hosting server is termed as FFmpeg hosting. Most FFmpeg hosting providers have the software tools and plug-ins preinstalled in the servers. The servers should be fast and enhanced for video sharing purposes.

Video sharing websites take up a lot of bandwidth and also puts a lot of pressure on the server, so unless it is a new site with very less popularity, it is not wise to have a shared hosting plan. For a site, which is relatively famous, and has a good volume of visitors must go for an upgraded hosting plan. A virtual private server would actually help the cause for a high volume website.

There are few websites scripts that are required for enabling community video sharing. While a few of those scripts would be provided in the hosting plan, they have to be installed in the server to make use of them. This provides web admins with a great option, as the scripts can be installed and configured according to the desires of the admins. The scripts also enable admins to set such community websites with video-sharing capability in very short time. One such website script is PHP Motion, which is provided for free in most FFmpeg hosting plans.

There are lots of FFmpeg hosting providers who provide such services for a varied range of fees. Generally the amount lies between 50 US dollars to 250 US dollars. The additional service offered depends provider to provider, as some might offer automated installation of certain website scripts that enable video sharing.

The market of video sharing has just started moving towards its peak. There is a long way to go and in the future we are sure to see more and more sites coming with FFmpeg hosting.

Hosting With ClipShare

May 25th, 2009 | Posted under FFmpeg Hosting, Web Hosting | No Comments »

Hosting With ClipShare

Clipshare is an extremely useful and popular program that enables its users to share video clips across an operating system based on the cross platform standard. ClipShare is software that allows the users to build websites that are based around the process of posting, viewing, linking, sharing, and sending etc video clips across a mass medium. The ClipShare software is created using the MySQL database and it is built with the help of the computer writing and scripting language PHP.

The application comprises of libraries of software built using ffmpeg. This allows one to upload and manipulate video clips and audio signals in a variety of ways. One can use the application to record the sound and video bytes and also to transform it in a number of ways by adapting the settings, before streaming it across the platform.

You can use either the elementary ClipShare software that is easily available or the more recent version that is ClipShare 4.0 Pro which was released in the year 2008. Let us discuss the requirements for being able to use either of these applications on one’s computer system.

In order to be able to use ClipShare 4.0 Pro your computer system will need somewhat advanced facilities. These functions are needed along with those we will discuss further on for those are the basic necessary requirements for both Basic ClipShare and Clip Share 4.0 Pro.

One of the primary needs is access to CGI- Bin. You also need to enable the functioning of the Apache mod_rewrite. The settings regarding the configuration of PHP, the computer scripting language should be activated as well, at the specific level of register_argc_argv = On. Your computer system, in order to be able to use ClipShare 4.0 Pro should have the facilities required to be able to allow PHP to function using the CLI command line along with exec (). Background processes using exec should be allowed to run on the computer unhindered.

Now let us discuss some of the more fundamental prerequisites that are need for both the basic ClipShare and for Clip Share 4.0 Pro. One of the primary requirements in this category is a Linux Server. It is important to have a Linux server as it is the minimum level that is needed to be able to run ClipShare and servers that are older or less advanced than the Linux category tend to be unsuitable for using ClipShare as many of them are not designed to be able to support the software and this can lead to complications.

The next minimum requirement is an Apache web server as well as a MySQL programming which should be of the minimum level of version 4 +. The configuration enabling the use of the scripting language PHP should be adapted to turn off the safe mode settings and the version 4.3+ should be in use. The software application has not been tried with the PHP 5 version and hence the compatibility regarding the same has not been determined.

The GD Library 2 is the minimum requirement. Levels higher than number 2 can be used to but it is the base minimum.
