N/A for text compression is SSL-specific. The lower layers of IE strip the gzip headers and if I change the behavior then IE goes into a mode where it waits for the full response before processing (which breaks early flush testing).

Are you requesting the tests as private? That would prevent them from showing in the logs. Also make sure the logs folder exists and is writable.

Can you send a couple of entries from your access log for the getwork.php requests (looking for a video=1 flag)?

Thanks,

I do have test as private on. I turned them off and it still doesn't seem to show. I don't recall having this problem with previous versions of WPT.

I'll send logs for getwork.php later.

Check the logs directory to make sure it's writable and see if there are log files showing up - that's where the test history is written (one file per day).

Still don't seem to get compression info with SSL with private unchecked. On public WPT however, compression shows up.

In results folder I see this under video_1 subfolder but WPT never shows the video:

Compression detection doesn't work with SSL (private install or on the public server) - it's a limitation on the information I have available from IE.

It looks like you have the necessary components to create the videos but something is going wrong with the rendering (or posting back). Do you have an entry in the access log for workdone.php shortly after the getwork.php entry?

If you look in the results/video directory, do you see any folders created?

Next step in debugging is going to be to turn on debugging in urlblast (add debug=1 to urlblast.ini) and run again. It will log information about the attempt to create the video (it downloads a zip file, extracts it and then runs x264.exe on it to create the video file before posting it back to the server).

Sorry it's so frustrating, there are a lot of moving pieces in the video creation path (been considering simplifying it so I can do it all in php on the server but avisynth provides a lot of flexibility that I'd hate to give up).

Thanks,
