I am using WYSIWYG module and TinyMCE library.

After installing Video, Video UI modules and then checked for Video in the WYSIWYG profiles.

Now when I edit any page using WYSIWYG, there is an icon to add video. When I click on that icon, it asks for video dimensions. Nothing else is asked, not even to uplaod video.

Am I missing something like some library to install a video player etc.?

Any help is appreciated.

When you have uploaded videos then you can see them in the wysiwyg browser, this is not just like media browser which is capable of uploading media.

I have uploaded videos on FTP under files folder. But it does not show those videos to pick from.

I'll look at issues around WYSIWYG integration later.

What would be correct code to insert video files (manualy uploaded via FTP), in Full HTML body?

I have used SWF tools (with Flow Player) in D6 and was using [swf file="flash/video_file.flv" image="/video_image.jpg" params="width=460&&height=345"]

Is the same/simmilar scenario possible in D7?

SWF tools is not yet available for Drupal7 so you can not use that.

Yes, I know that there are no SWF Tools for D7, but I was asking for alternative or simmilar way of achieving the same.

I finally end up using http://code.google.com/p/flvplayer/ for FLV and http://code.google.com/p/mp3player/ for mp3

I ended up using ckeditor and http://drupal.org/project/ckeditor_swf for embedding video files.

Hope this helps.

Maybe the same problem - "Video browser" is empty (it shows only "Player dimensions")
...even the files are uploaded via node save or ftp.

Settings are:
- Video module 7.x-2.6
- WYSIWYG + CKEditor
- no transcoding (just upload via node or ftp of mp4 and flv files)
+ video.js to play the file

Please help with some directions where to look?

I didn't get any solution for this. I tried to setup this module but I could not. I ended up using ckeditor_swf module. Hope you get the solution. If you get the solution then please post here too so that others can get some help as well.

According to the code in video_file_browser() you only get videos (1) uploaded into a field of an entity (nodes, users, ...) and (2) which you own (means: you are the author).

There seems no way to choose from the file system directly.
