I’m trying to run a phpBB 3 modification (specifically, this one: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=613089 )
and it requires ffmpeg, flvtool2, and mencoder. I attempted to install those, but it was the first time I used PuTTY and accessed a server via SSH, so I’m not even sure if it installed correctly (though the script does detects them all as being installed). I followed this tutorial: http://www.netbrix.net/archives/20
Is there a script or something I can run to check that these are installed correctly?
But anyways, the point is, others seem to be able to get this script to work, but I’m having problems on my installation. Specifically, videos won’t fully upload/convert to FLV’s. A video will upload to 320KB then give a phpBB error. If I manually upload an FLV via FTP and add a database entry for it, it will work, however.
Anyone have any advice? Do you guys think there may be something wrong with the script/my installation of the script, or do you guys think upgrading to VPS may fix the problem? (Since apparently uploading and converting videos is CPU intensive) Or have any advice at all?
Thanks a lot, really appreciate the help.
