Adding a file from the media player

When selecting a file for usage with the media player and the site is hosted in a virtual directory of the root site <servername>\<mojosite> the file selection dialog seems to be appending an additional uneeded parameter to the URL and not using the relative for the media player module. I discovered this when attempting to use an flv file within JP Player - when I hit play I would get an error dialog pointing to mojosite\mojosite\URL to file - manually editing the URL path in the file selection module corrected this Issue. Is this a defect or am I missing a configuration (I did search both here and the documentation but nothing stood out).

I remebered this problem from a former life http://goo.gl/aSMyn working with a different instance of mojo

Thanks

Al

Let me know if you need anything else

Now we know the problem I have instructed our users how to workaround

Thanks for your usual swift response and for all your hard work

Re: Adding a file from the media player

Hi Al,

Try adding this to user.config:

<add key="IsRunningInRootSite" value="false" />

then touch web.config to make it reload settings and see if that solves the problem.

Best,

Joe

I added that to the user config

Touched the web config

No joy - same problem

To be sure I recycled the application pool in IIS & verified the key in the user.config

Same problem

Should I attempt adding that to the web.config ?

Re: Adding a file from the media player

also make sure this setting is false:

<add key="UseFoldersInsteadOfHostnamesForMultipleSites" value="false" />

in both user.config and web.config

I ensured the setting in the web.config was as requested which it was

It was not present in the user.config - which as I understand means it should default back to the web.config

However I did add it to the user.config and there was no change in behavior the problem persists.

Re: Adding a file from the media player

Hi Al,

I was able to produce this problem in my local copy and fix it, so it will be fixed in the next release which should ship in the next few weeks.

The only workaround for now is kind of inconvenient. You could edit the file path in the db in the mp_MediaFile table to remove the ~ at the beginning of the file path.

Best,

Joe
