Can't see videos in Hypertheme

Recommended Posts

When I load up a theme to edit it in Hypertheme, it won't show the associated video anywhere, even when I "play" the theme. I have set the default video directory in the settings. Am I missing anything here?

Edit: even worse, I edited a theme in HyperTheme to move an image, and saved it - and when I run the theme in HyperSpin the video isn't on the theme anymore!!

because you saved the theme without adding a video. The video must be in FLV format to be able to play in Hypertheme (you can use any video to edit your theme)

But all my videos are in MP4. If I want to edit a theme, do I need to convert the video for that theme to FLV?

I'm pretty sure you can just rename it to *.flv. Once you're done with your theme you can rename it back to *.mp4

Hypertheme hasn't been updated since before Hyperspin go the MP4 upgrade

and Hyperspin is still using some FLV videos

transitions and your default Front End  "Missing video" file

I suggest you make a copy of this video

C:\HyperSpin\Media\Frontend\Video\No Video.FLV

and move the copy to your Hypertheme WIP folder

C:\HyperSpin\HyperTheme\MyThemes\

 

when you are editing(or making a new theme) a theme,  simply add the No Video.FLV   from your Mythemes folder to your theme project as a video place holder.
