    • Hi there,

      Sorry for delayed reply, it was necessary to take a hold of developers to find out the answers to these questions as they are pretty busy right now so I have received the reply only today.

      1) All the videos are converted into the same resolution which is 448x336.

      2) At this moment we are not accepting requests to add new iframe sources.

      3) The transfer script that we have at the moment and that has been created a long time ago cannot transfer the videos from 2.0 into 3.0 platform as the videos feature for 3.0 networks has just recently been released. So anyway it will be rewritten or changed.

      4) The uploading itself hasn't been changed, the algorithm of video converting has been changed and reworked, also new player uses html5 instead of flash so the videos will be available on most browsers and platforms.  

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

        Thank you. I appreciate the response and understand you needed to discuss with developers.

        I find it shocking you did not mention that videos are now using html5 instead of flash as this is a big change and the kind of enhancement I thought would be included in the announcement. It is not in the announcement or the link to the page with more details.

        Anyway, thank you for your answers.

    What a wonderful announcement!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, Ning!

  • I've added video to our network and added a test video. I note that the site activity feed isn't updated. Have a missed something in admin or is this a Ning problem?

    Thanks for adding video back;)

    • Hi Phillip, I am seeing them in mine ok. How have you got the page setup ? Is it set to view by admin while you are testing, if so they will not show up in the feed.

      • Hi John

        Thanks for your response.

        It looks as though all my settings are right.

        • Hi there!

          We have tested the latest activity on the test network and the uploaded video has shown up. However, as we can see the videos that you have embedded hasn't appeared in the feed so we have created the report and sent it to the QA department for the verification.

          As soon as they will run the test we will inform you about the results.

          Best regards,

          Ning Team.
