PHPFOX / METAFOX has a lot of potential... I am not hating on them or their product. I am just disappointed in the product. I mean phpfox has been around for a LONG time and they have all these plugins - but none of them work in the app. 

I just believe that for what I have paid for the ultimate license, live plugin, native apps, other plugins they should have a better product. 

I simply believe that their main goal (maybe their only goal) is to sell as is and never add to it. 

It's just sad that others are in the market with more advanced features for far less. 

TikTok videos are COMMON PLACE in other platforms. Yet, they want you to pay for custom work... maybe you should just do the custom work because people are spending a lot of money to buy your license... then buy your plugins... so maybe to create a better product you guys would have a platform that could embed tiktok videos... I could list of a lot of other things that the product should just have but I talked about that in another post.

I would like to see PHPFOX optimize for engagement. Create something for creators... You charge a lot for your product... I just feel that would warrant the natrual progression of improvement. That's all.

Hello tahoecale, thanks for your reminder, my bad.

Hello MikeRock, the feature you want doesn't exist in our platform, however, we can help you implement it via custom work which incurs additional cost. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us by opening a ticket at:

Then, our customization team will be in touch with you shortly.

Hi ElekTrO,

May we know where did you copy the link?  



The link was copied directlly from the video right click and select copy video address.

Hello Wilson,

Currently, we only support to share video from Facebook to phpFox site, however, we will considere carefully to connect phpFox platform with other social media in our future upgrades. We  really regret for this inconvenience.

this is disheartening as all of this is above me. Ive had this script since the beginning and it has been ran into the ground in my opinion. nothing is editable by me anymore. sure my fault for not learning I guess but back in the day I was adept enough to customize whatever I wanted. now I cant do anything. 18 files for the same thing all over the place..

cant even find a phpfox "developer" that wil answer back even after buying their teme 3 days ago..

I am experiencing this too, but only with videos directly uploaded. Not with videos shared via url like YouTube videos. I have rebuilt the core theme and cleared the cache. I have even switched themes to bootstrap and material, but I am still experiencing this double player issue.

Rich, were you able to fix it? Do you remember what the solution was?

Hi Karl Kunc,

We would like to give you some suggestions:

1. Please consider limiting the file size (input file size)

2. Do configure on Zendcoder Encoding settings to limit the output file size.

Thanks Hannah,. I actually am using phpfox hosting service with 4tb transfer and my connection is 13 mps upload. With only me on It takes a minute to upload an 11 sec video. The video size is 25 Meg's. I did the size change in the php.ini and the timeout for the server config. Just wondering if there is anything else I could do to speed it up a little.

Thanks for the tip.  It worked for me.  Would have never thought of that as a solution.  Again, thank you for your help.  Now if I could get my Live feed and ChatPlus installed, I would be in business.

That's not going to help. EVERY video is gone. There's nothing in the database tables so there's no trace of anything. My backup databases have nothing either. Those date back 4 months. 10 years of videos... gone.

Suppose I should have been more responsible and monitored things more closely.

Hi ande1000,

To make the upload video process work correctly. Please make sure that you meet the below requirements:

1. Cronjob will be configured correctly. Please follow this guideline

2. Video Encoding service will be configured correctly.  Please refer the below options:

- option 1: FFMPEG install on your server

- Option 2: Zencoder video encoding service

For more information, please refer to section [Additional Requirement for the Video App] We did not provide this instruction because it is phpFox System Requirements.

Hi Rune, It looks like an invalid YouTube link, could you please try another link?

Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't work. Looks like youtube links are not working as you say :)
