Movie won't showed up

Posted on 30 January 2013
Good extension as displayed in demo website but not as good as it real when i installed on my Joomla website.

I set the type YOUTUBE but neither URL Link or URL Embed code are working, i paste the video code, full url link video code and even paste embed html into URL Embed Code but neither aren't working. It says "The movie uploaded is not in a valid file format."
Owner's reply: I bet you didn't ask for help...

Good Extension... But....

This is a good extension but not much easy to understand or configure, suitable for experienced joomla developers but not newbies like me... The developer should reconsider this.
Owner's reply: I bet you didn't either...
I had some problems at the beginnig using xmovie, i've wrote to Dana Harris and received an answer that solved all very quickly ! thanks for this good job and nice support !

I have encountered a serious issue when using XMovie. I wrote to Dana Harris asking for help, sincerely without much conviction. Surprise! I received rapidly a response from the author and he helped me resolve the issue. Xmovie is a great extension. I recommand it to everyone who want to outperform their site. Most of all you have a solid and reliable support.

Great component

Very easy to use, plays most formats without the hassle of conversion. I wish you could upload from the frontend, so that non-admin users could easily add videos. Outside of that, this com is A+.
Owner's reply: Hi Thanks for the review. I'm currently working on a pro version that offers multiuser support on the frontend similar to XGallery Pro. It should be out in a couple months.

Perfect Support

Great component and great support from developer ^^ Tyvm Dana
An all round good extension, with good documentation, takes a little while to understand the many useful settings in configuration, making it pretty flexible.

Support by the developer is fantastic, very friendly and useful.

Would be nice to have a simple module in addition to the component, which displays a single movie.
Owner's reply: Hi,

Thanks for the review. There is a module for displaying single movies... Look for XMovie Movie module.

I have been through about a half dozen Media extensions trying to set up a large amount of videos, and every single one of them failed me except for XMovie! Thank you for making a component that actually works!

Great Product!

I found XMovie to be exactly what I was looking for. I needed the ability to display movies in a module. Most video players available would only show movies in articles. I tried - and purchased - other players that promised to work in modules but either didn't or were just to cumbersome.

XMovie has a number of sister pieces that expand the package. I haven't tried them but expect they will be as great as XMovie component and module.

Tech support was SUPER fast and very much appreciated by this reviewer.
I needed a video component and I tried XMovie. It did everything I needed except for the ability to disable AutoPlay. I emailed Dana and asked for directions to do so. Not only did Dana respond immediately but she provided a new version of the component that allowed AutoPlay to be enabled/disabled. Great work and worthy of a donation! Thank you!
