SlideShowPro Director not working


#1

Since the Dreamhost moved my site to another server, SlideshowPro no longer works. I upgraded SSP Director, deleted all the caches that DH suggested. Even the test file from SSP doesn’t work in my URL.

Any suggestions?


#2

Are the file permissions correct? I don’t pretend tot know SlideShowPro, but if they have any basic debugging tips, that would be where I’d start.


#3

Did you finally found ways to install it? Also my test file doesn’t work telling me they can’t find the FFMPEG path.
Do you have any suggestions? thanks a lot


#4

The SSP test file checks ffmpeg -version for the string “FFmpeg” using strpos, which is case-sensitive.

test.php - line 269:

ffmpeg -version returns ffmpeg (not FFmpeg) so it fails.

Using the case-insensitive stripos should show if it really can or can not find ffmpeg.

Thanks a great lot, it works well now
I hope it will still work if I decide to buy the software without finding similar or additional discrepancies I am no programmer and not all that young either…
