Open infusions/the_kroax/embed.php and search for bluemetal.swf and change to your downloaded skin name,it is listed several times.
To use original skin -just remove the complete skin line , search for skin in embed and you will find it , ill make some fancy setting for this later on but this version was urgent for Youtube functions.
If you want Google ads like we have here , open embed.php and find "Put google code" you can find it at 3 places.
Q: Where do I begin?
1. Upload files following directory structure in zip file
2. Infuse or upgrade
3. Admin > Infusions > The Kroax > Settings (here is an upgrade button too)
4. Create a category or multiple categories/subcategories etc.
5. Start adding your movies/music ...
Add any media with full paths/URLs.
If you add YouTube videos, paste the whole "http://www." address and end it with .999
And you will get JW flv customized player, which is included with Kroax. (Only avaialbe from 7.5>
If you use the embed code that YouTube provides instead, you will get the YouTube player.
Add streams with the extension .stm
Q: I upload a video but only the directory path is shown in the administration, there is no video here.
You need to chmod your upload/movies & thumbs directories so they are writable.
If you run a local server your temp dir also need's to be set in php.ini & be writeable.
Q: Kroax keep saying the Video dosent exist but they are there.
Q: When I upload files from uploader it says my file exceed max allowed file size, but it is set to 2 GB in the files, how is that?
The file upload is also controlled by max upload size in php.ini, if this size is lower than the file you try to upload you wont be able to upload.
Also in php.ini, you must set the values of post_max_size and max_execution_time correctly for what you are downloading. Consult http://www.php.net for more information.
Q: The description gets all compressed on my theme and detailed view.
Unfortunately there are far too many available themes for us to prepare for them all. Some themes that have less overall width can cause problems with many infusions, including Kroax. You will need custom design/code work done to make Kroax fit in better with your desired theme.
You can sometimes make some improvement by opening kroax.php and removing the line that reads "require_once BASEDIR."side_right.php"; ". If you choose to have the videos embedded in your pages instead of playing in popup windows, you should make the same edit in embed.php.
In PHP-Fusion 7 you can simply go to Administration > System Admin > Main settings Find :Exclude Right Panels and set it to
Q: I try to use .flv files but the flv player will not play them, the server also reports there is no file in that location, but the file is there. What is wrong?
The MIME type is not set for your server.
The MIME type needs to be set to extension: .flv video/x-flv.
Q: YouTube will not play in flv player, why?
A1: The url encode scripts is only available from 7.5 >
You have to add the complete YouTube url with our custom extension since kroax bases its playback on what extension a file has. The extension for YouTube is .999 and it is added to the end of the URL.
Q: Videos from Google and some other video sites will not play in flv player even though they are .flv files, why?
We do not have a proper decode script for them. Use the embedded code feature for other sites, or the .998 extension for Google and other sites.
If you link from other sites and they don't encode their files to provide a full link with a file extension, you can just add the video with that full url and kroax will pick a suitable player for that format automatically.
Q: What if I can't change upload size & script timeout settings?
Godaddy came up with a nice way to fix this.
Create a .htaccess file and set it like this:
php_value post_max_size 500M
php_value upload_max_filesize 500M
php_value max_execution_time 6000000
Put the .htaccess file in the_kroax/ directory.
Known problems :
If you run your site in a directory like
the .js scripts have issues, you need to hardcode all path´s in them to
