Video FLV Datatype extension

Yesterday, I released the first version of eZVideoFLV, a new extension providing a datatype to store, handle and convert to FLV video files. It's based on the default ezmedia datatype. It mainly adds three features:

  • generate an image preview for each video file using ffmpeg-php and GD
  • detect and store video size width ffmpeg-php to
  • convert video file to FLV on upload or with a cronjob script in order to be readable with a flash FLV player (like on Youtube or Dailymotion) using ffmpeg program

The extension is bundled with FLV Player which is released under the MPL 1.1 license. The rest of the extension is released under the GNU GPL licence 2. All information can be found on
