Dear Raja,

We at IIMK also faced the same problem with the streaming videos (V 2.70
onwards) and I am happy we have been able to fix it on a small set of
video files and hence it should work on large numbers too.

Usually backward slash ('') is used for linking the media files (eg:
ums:\TCP:localhost:5119videossample.mpg or .wmv). Instead, use forward
slash ('/') for creating link and the problem will be solved. Instead of
TCP you can also use HTTP if you have installed UHttpproxy and switch off
windows firewall. Hence the resulting links will be:

ums://TCP:172.20.6.9/media/sample.mpg OR
ums://http:172.20.6.9/media/sample.mpg (or wmv, as the case may be)

Steps (to summarize the above) :

1) Edit the html files available in the "import/collection-name" folder. The
location of the files will be "/Greenstone/collect/collection_name
/import/collection-name"

Correction: Replace the backward slashes with forward slashes (/) in the
html files in the folder. eg: ums://TCP:172.20.6.9:5119/media/sample.mpg)

2) Rebuild the collection using GLI.
3) Preview the collection, perform searches.

It should work.

Best wishes.
Sreekumar

Hi,

I am facing a problem with the collection involving
video files. I followed the relevant documentation on
developing video collections using greenstone software
and everything seems to be working OK except that the
hyperlink to the video file e.g.
ums:\TCP:localhost:5119videofilessmartlittlebird.wmv
is having http appended to it and the result is a File
not found error. To avoid this problem I configured
the HTMLPlugin with the no_links option and it works
fine but when I search for any video file and click on
the same hyperlink the link is broken and the result
is a "unknown resource" error. The URL appears as
ums:TCP:localhost........

I am not sure if somebody from the user community
faced similar problem and have got around the same.
Kindly request you to share any information that would
be useful in resolving this. Details of the software
that I am using for my prototype is

Verion - 2.73
OS - Windows XP
Local Library
UMS and Streaming Media Player configured
Virtual Folder created on the same system
Collection involving the smartlittlebird.html file
created

Any help will greatly be appreciated.

Regards
Raja Rao
