Last Updated on Wednesday, 20 March 2013 21:25 Written by Rudolf BoogermanFor those of you who use Joomla 1.5.26, the S3Media Stream version 6.0.2 is available now.
It works exactly the same as the Joomla 2.5 version except for one thing:
For private streaming, whether it is a single video/audio or a dynamic private streaming playlist, it must be set to encode URLs (encryption).
This has the disadvantage that posterimages and thumbnails will not show up on iPad and various other mobile devices. Other then that, everything works fine.
Requirements: PHP 5.2 to 5.3. PHP 5.4 is not supported on this version.
Last Updated on Wednesday, 20 March 2013 21:30First of all, we are happy to announce that S3Media Stream has undergone a couple of great improvements:
- Dynamic playlists for private streaming
- Private Key file placement no longer needed
- Private download distribution for HTML5 Fallback
- Separate version for PHP 5.2 and PHP 5.3 - 5.4
Last Updated on Monday, 28 January 2013 18:11As from 23 January 2013, the pricing and license plans of JW Player 6.0 changed again.
There are only two license types left:
- 1 site License JW Player Pro: $99 $149/Year
- 10 site license JW Player Premium: $249 $299/Year
Last Updated on Wednesday, 20 March 2013 21:39Since S3Media Strean 6.0.3 underwent a lot of changes, our test version for Joomla 3.x is obsolete now. We need to start from scratch again, adapting the latest version.
Therefore, there is no test version available at this time.
We try to fix this as soon as possible and send a newsletter when it is ready for testing.
Please be informed that, just like all joomla 3.x versions prior to 3.5, it is not meant for production sites. Use Joomla 2.5 instead as long as a stable version of Joomla is not forthcoming. Read also: http://www.joomla.org/announcements/release-news/5482-joomla-3-1-beta1-released.html
The future of Joomla 1.5 and 1.7
We plan to keep supporting Joomla 1.5 and 1.7 as long as there is demand for it, but not for configurations that have PHP 4.x on board. The minimal requirement is PHP 5.2 with Joomla 1.5.17 or higher.

What can S3Media Stream™ Do for You?
With S3Media Stream you can publish and protect your video and audio with Private RTMP Streaming using S3 Amazon/CloudFront combined with JW player. Private streaming gives double protection against unauthorized use. The player is HTML5 compatible! Play video and audio on the web, iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices.

We've tried a couple of different extensions in the past, including a product for which we paid money, but simply didn't work. We never received any support either -- our emails went completely ignored.
Fortunately, after some more searching, we came across S3Media Stream. Not only was this extension much more robust and easier to work with, but the support that we received from Rudolf is extraordinary.

We created a new set of skins for JW player (included in S3Media Stream™) that are html5 compatible. They will show up on all browsers, except on iOS devices because Apple takes full control when a video is detected, but at least they will not prevent the videos or audios from playing as happens with non compatible skins.

In this video tutorial we show you how to set permissions for your audio and video on S3 Amazon and/or CloudFront. However, you can set permissions for any file you like. You need an application to do that and we recommend using CloudBerry S3 Explorer as it is the most versatile application at this time of writing. The application is freeware and you can download it here.

Below you can see the skin elements of of the control bar. As you can see, they consist of small images which you can easily change. The best way to start a skin is by copying an existing one. In the installation zip (s3mediapro.zip) is a folder called: skins and in that folder is a sub folder called Beelden. I used that one as a basis for Polished Metal, included in this module.
