Info: Cumulusclips with Ubuntu Server 14.04, PHP Version 5.5.9, Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)

edited June 2014 in General
Just a few Informations:

the mod_rewrite has now to be configured in:
/etc/apache2/apache2.conf

--> Configure the paramaters like this:

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Require all granted


In this ubuntu-release, there is no ffmpeg package anymore, this is obsolete,

so just use "avconv"
--> this is the new ffmpeg, but be careful, if you use this, you should modify the follwing:

In Admin Panel, go to video
FFMPEG Path: /usr/bin/avconv (it recognizes this converter as working)

flv options: -s 640x480 -vb 800k -ac 2 -ab 96k -ar 44100 -f flv (same as defualt)
mobile options: -s 480x360 -vb 600k -ac 2 -ab 96k -ar 44100 -strict experimental -f mp4 (-strict experimental is needed here! Without, the files will hang in the database as "in process" and will not finish")

an error like this occurs at the end of the log in /cc-core/logs/xxx.log

encoder 'aac' is experimental and might produce bad results.
Add '-strict experimental' if you want to use it.


Thumbnail Options: -s 640x480 -vsync 1 -r 1 -an -y -f mjpeg (here are new parameters,too)

Everything else was as described in the documentation, so there is no need if you do not use ffmpeg to use a custom plugin :)
