For instance, I have problem to use it in Joomla 1,7 with tables. I want to align to wrap in text and always used for that purpose tables. Now Joomla 1,7 don't like tables and table with border="0" show border anyway.
How to configure rokbox without tables I don't find a way.
If you don't activate my review, please answer firstname.lastname@example.org, because I can't write in Rokbox forum like I am not a member of club.
However when i set the with and the height to a percentage, then all my javescript of the admin panel stoppes working. And it costed me many hours to find out that a small setting like that can cause so many problems on your website.
thats why i wouldn't recommend this plugin for the moment.
I had a problem whereby reloading a page would not load the script/link tags into the Head tag (it appears to replace the tag with 4 script/link lines followed by ), but the replace doesn't work on a refresh, and the only way to report this bug or get support is to pay $50 minimum membership for their forums. I had to uninstall since refreshing a page with a gallery on lead to non-displaying images.
its really perfect,
-auto thumbnail generation
-cross browsers(not fully!)
-and so on!
but i rate this "Good" because with some other plugins i have problem in ie6,7 !
(the site closed with error)
this plugin is not so compatible with some other components like Usertoolbar
i mean rokbox.js is not so clear and cross-browser
I haven't found a better extension for handling multimedia files. Rokbox is easy to add to content items, handles links to video hosted at YouTube and Hulu, and works marvelously for images--the automatic thumbnail creation is great--with a couple of tweaks.
For some reason, out-of-the-box Rokbox is hard-coded to crop images when it creates thumbnails. I routinely change the line of code to scale rather than crop images when it creates thumbnails. It also doesn't add height and width attributes to the image tags it creates, which would be a small modification for the developers to make.
I have never gotten the local or remote FLV display to work. Apparently, this happens with some servers running mod_security that won't allow JWPlayer to access and play the videos, though other plugins, like Mgmediabot2, are able to do so. It will play other video file formats, so I usually convert FLV to MPEG if I need to run a local file.
The forum for Rokbox is pretty helpful if have issues, though it seems some posts go without response from the developers there are quite a few other users who respond. There are a Tips and Tricks and Solved Issues topics that are a must read if you have issues.
Rokbox, based on Mootools, doesn't play well with JQuery, though it is much better about this in Joomla 1.5.x than it was in Joomla 1.0.x. Think twice before you spend a lot of time on it if you're using a JQuery-dependent extension you can't live without.
Is there a standard link, where i can place my youtube URL's? or is there anyone who can explain me step by step what to do (the only thing i did till now is activate the plugin)
The numerous features are great and the look is awesome.
Am I supposed to pay 50$ for a membership of 60 days to not be sure it will work properly at the end...? May be a conflict with an other extension ?
Please the authors, let me know.
