Dear Mr. Rajan

In Greenstone
2.75, even without setting□the□process_extension option in
Unknown Plug , you can process mpg, midi□ etc.□

you give□'mpg' in the Process_extension option,□Greenstone will
process only□the mpg files.□

The reason for not
getting the result at the first time was you have given
the□Process_extension in Capital Letters, but it should be small
letters and□that was the mistake you committed. □Try using small
letters you will definitely get the result.□

If you have
some other unknown files (for□greenstone) like□'midi' you should
not set the Process_extension option.□

Anyway I am happy
to know that your current video problem solved.□

Dear Mr Biju / All,

Thank you for the response

My query had an error that the plugin
used was Unknown and not Nul as I put it

After the receipt of the reply I tried
to buid with setting the configuration process_extension
to MPG for three time and found unsuccessful.

Then I set the
process_exp to MPG and created the collection
successfully. The video was included for the first time.

After that I can now build that .mpg (
an 18 MB small ) file just by including the Unknown
plugin and withour even configuring the
process_extension or

Can anyone shed some light on what could
have been the reason for the initial rejection and the present inclusion
by the same plugin - now without even any configuration ?

The question is meant for kowing more
about the intricacy.

Dear Mr. Rajan

You can very well build video collection in greenstone. But Nul Plug
is not for that purpose. You have to configure an Unknown
Plug to process video files with the extension .mpg.

You can follow the steps:

In the Document Plugins section of the Design panel:

add UnknownPlug;
activate its process_extension field and set it to "mpg" to make it
recognize files
with extension

All the best
