Private Instance Video - Beauco - 10-29-2011 12:09 AM

Hi,

I'm having difficulties getting Video to work on our Private Instance.
tmp files and zips are being created in the /work/video/ directories
but no actual video is created and wpt is just showing "Your video will be available shortly. Please wait...".

I guess its a problem with ffmpeg.
As per: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.org/docs/private-instances I added the ffmpeg bin folder to the PATH. What else can I do?

It's a Windows 2008 server with latest Apache, PHP & ffmpeg builds.

Thanks!

Make sure you installed AVISynth on the test machine (installer is in the same directory as urlblast). The videos will not get created without it. ffmpeg is just used for extracting the thumbnail and setting the size of the video, it won't impact the videos themselves working or now.

I'm having this problem. I'm on a Window 7, 64 bits and have an agent for Chrome.

AVISynth is installed on the client machine.

Used the installer from the agent folder and nothing happens so I tried using the installer from the official website and still doesn't work.

Also tried installing an unifficial 64 bits version but still no luck.
Any ideas what can be the problem or what can I do to troubleshoot.

I'm using WPT 2.13

Thanks

RE: Private Instance Video - pmeenan - 03-12-2014 12:08 AM

Right now you need to run urlblast for rendering videos, even if you're using wptdriver for all of the testing. You can set it up to poll for a bogus location name just so it can pick up video jobs.

Thanks Patrick, that fixed the issue.
