hi, greetings from www.bakachan.org
I'm the main admin and programmer and I'm trying to set up this thing for webm but I can't get the javascript to work properly, I tried to manually edit the templates but I failed miserably.
Is there some kind of documentation for this code? I tried studying it myself but it is not as easy as I tought


ah never mind I'll just use the
<video> tag.


You can see the full list of changes I've made here:


This includes what I've done to the templates.

The problem I've seen with just simply using the <video> tag with preload="auto" is that browsers tend to download the entire video if it's relatively short. What's being done here is to extract one frame from the video and use that as the "thumbnail," which isn't ideal but saves some bandwidth over the simplest way of doing things.

If you can run FFmpeg, you should use that to create actual thumbnails, which is better than what's done here. It isn't used here because I wanted to have a baseline that anyone can install, and not everyone hosting a site manages their own VPS. I'm going to add it as an option in containerchan once I have a bit more time to spend on it.


well, thanks, the trouble I have is I'm running an old version of tinyboard that we modified to a point where we can't just update it, so I can't get it to work with that info, I'll try to set up ffmpeg on my web server and see if it works, see ya and thanks again.
