Problems with Drupal Video Module

May 9th, 2011 | By | Category: Internet, Technology

Well we just started uploading videos to a new Drupal installation and I was greeted by lovely 200 error messages that went something like this:

200 Stream not found, NetStream.Play.StreamNotFound, clip:

I started doing a little investigating and noticed that when I went to my video admin transcoder setting page I was greeted by a blank white page, which means of course that there are php errors being logged somewhere 🙂  Checking into that domain’s error logs popped up a bunch of this:

PHP Fatal error:  Declaration of video_ffmpeg_wrapper::convert_video() must be compatible with that of transcoder_interface::convert_video()


I first realized that ffmpeg wasn’t installed, neither was flvtools2 so I quickly went and installed those, well quickly in relation to how long it takes to install ffmpeg, but the problem still persisted..  I ended up fixing this by unloading the Video module, uninstalling it, deleting the Video directory in /modules/ , grabbing the latest version and reinstalling it.

Works now, happy dance time!
