Any questions, you know where to ask!
Okay I will ask, how do I get the cool image with the "play" icon in it as the link/click to activate? I got how to put the link to an image, I just can't figure out how to get the image to have the play icon.
Ok cool. Well, I don't have anything super recent as I've been concentrating on photography this year. However, I do have a VERY short film that relates to both video and photo - it is stop-motion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxtlI9hZsV4
I'll be doing more animations later this year!
The only vid I have uploaded so far is this...http://www.osirisphoto.com/gallery/3952220_3Fpqt/1/229598962_KEBcV/Large
The 'play' icon is a .png that is overlayed over the image of a video in a gallery in order graphically signify that it's a video and to differentiate from an image. There is not a way to use it along with your video thumbnail to link to that I know of.
If you want to use just the 'play' graphic only, the source is here:http://cdn.smugmug.com/img/play_medium.png
Your gallery is pw protected. Also, you should be using the link that ends in -LB.

I did this one as a test. It was rather impromptu. My grandfather, his brother, and their brother in law started singing the other day and I grabbed my laptop and used the built in webcam to record.It's Geef Mij Maar Amsterdam
(they're all from Holland).
I uploaded it as my first test for a video upload to smugmug!
I can hear it Christina, but cant see any image at all ... Skippy
Hmm, I'm not sure what's wrong. I've viewed it one three different comps running three different browers - IE6, IE7, and Firefox. All seem fine. Have you had a problem viewing anyone else's videos?
I see it fine. Skippy, is your QT up to date?
What a hoot. I love it when the old guys sing!
none of the videos are playing for me. I've checked for the latest updates in Quicktime and all seems fine. Any suggestions?
Angelo, what browser are you using? No matter what updates I do I can't get quicktime to work in Firefox. Is the video just not loading? Do you see the blue Quicktime "Q"?
Here's another one that I uploaded last night. It took me a couple tries to get it uploaded, maybe because it's almost to the 10min limit and was a .wmv file that had to be converted by smugmug?
This is what I do when I'm not photographing or working...I ride http://www.phyxius.smugmug.com/gallery/4484421_sQ5UV#264454880_2KrKX-A-LB
I second the question about what browser you are using. Do you get the blue Q?
I use Firefox all the time and never have a problem with playing the videos.
You might want to check your file extensions to make sure another application is not trying to play the video. Some versions of Quicktime (PC) have an option you can click that will reset the file associations. You might want to try that.
All I know is I have a lot to learn shooting and making movies on the computer.
Here is my first attempt I did last weekend - Inuyama Castle 犬山 close to where I live in Nagoya, Japan. This one I didn't take too long editing it. Next time I'm going to find some good editing software first.
Dangin, what software did you use to edit that movie and how did you post that thumbnail in the forums?
