    Default how to make a video carousel - -??

    for years I used a program called video lightbox
    does exactly what I want - makes it own index
    that point I to with iFrame

    now -- for some reason -- it will not stream?
    tried 2 different hostservers
    tried even without the iFrame
    tried 3 different browsers
    2 different laptops
    and 2 different ccell phones

    so ............ maybe I need to try using NOF?
    so -- how?
    here is a look I want == all video on screen at once with small pix
    then click and play

    http://ravenswood-ternopil.com/html/videos.html
    or the raw page without the iFrame
    http://topgun.com/RIE-RTL/Roads/

    does not need to be as nice as the demo
    which stll works - just does not play anymore

    ps

    even tried simple page without using video editor
    just mp4 from phone
    which always worked before

    pps

    these vids worked last week

    HELP

    pps
    just uploaded to youtube -- works as it should

    Have you tried copying and pasting the source code from video light box instead of using an iframe. The iframe may be falling foul of some update in win 10 or browsers.

    yes -- per my OP
    I tried that
    http://topgun.com/RIE-RTL/Roads/

    made a simple 1 video page and link direct --
    STILL NOT STREAMING

    ARGH

    anyway -- almost done -- with a home made solution
    will post when done
    eg made a page of 3 x 3 photos
    each links to its own page
    each page ie link target has an embedded video
    I wanted to do popup pages -- but for some reason - both auto center and command locations
    it stayed stuck to left edge
    so just set target to embeded -- looks ok .. will embed into master site with navbar later

    also
    the iFrame solution etc worked perfect until 2 days ago
    I updated the videos ... argh -- then boom
    yes / tried the original videos and even simpler ones
    and even ran program on older win 8 laptop

    as always
    thanks for your thoughts (keep them coming)

    I see these are flash (.swf) videos?? DO note that Flash is being discontinued and websites should no longer be using these.

    upon another 10 hours of probing -- I learned that the size of the files seems to be the issue
    argh =
    50-250MB HD not streaming
    nor are the HD direct from my cell phone

    back to the video editor to process SD -
    ARGH

    ok -- quality is too bad when I keep reducing
    so I tried the youtube player
    workds GREAT -- FULL HD
    BUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    at the end - it floods the player with recommended videos
    seems only way to stop it is with each person profile
    unless anyone knows a way/

    you can disable the recommended videos in youtube settings

    when you stream mp4 videos, the mp4 file info needs to be at the start of the file. Most programs add the info at the end of file and as a result, the file needs to be fully downloaded in background before it plays

    I can convert your files to excellent quality in HD and low bitrate with file info at start of file. send me a link to one of your files that I can download and convert and you will be amazed with the result

    ref youtube settings
    I researched that -- and could not find that 'checkbox'
    I wonder if is still available

    I am using Pinnacle v.20
    link? google drive ? or should I put a zip file into a folder
    should I convert out of mp4 into something else
    i also have newest cyberlink

    thanks

    ps
    sent you a PM with link to zip file

    pps
    trying h2.65 now - file is big again -- maybe will stream better
    looked like still mp4 (which I guess is the 'container??' last time I was using mpeg-4 == still learning = will report back after more testing --- b

    btw
    I can stream very high def from you tube - so I know my pipes are ok??
    guess they use better codec than I been using
