Hit a bit of a wall so I’d appreciate any assistance on how I can get over it.
I’m attempting to use any html5 player to use RMTP’s service. My amazon s3/cloudfront is setup and working correctly. Direct links such as:
[s2File download=‘comp.mp4’ download_key=‘yes’ stream=‘yes’ inline=‘yes’]
Work great if I insert it into a link and the video loads on click in a new window. I’m attempting to stream locally through another player though. I’ve tried several solutions but here’s the major hurdle(s):
If I use another wordpress video player plugin, the s2file shortcode doesn’t output the URL within the shortcode (I also added the “outerbridge nested shortcodes” plugin so a shortcode could work within a shortcode with no luck).
I loaded the VideoJS html5 player locally and tested it accurately, when attempting to insert the shortcode, it again doesn’t generate the URL within the page (just leaves the shortcode as-is). I also attempted to insert the outputted URL from the standalone shortcode into the “src” field of the videojs just to review compatibility and that failed as well. Other local videos play fine FYI
So what I’m hoping for is a few examples from the community where they used an alternative player (preferably self-hosted) and were able to insert the s2file shortcode accurately? Good bet I may also be missing some local variables to the shortcode to grant accurate permissions?
Any guidance/assistance here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
