Uploading to preferred video site on linux machine. Help!


Hello everyone,

I am trying to upload files to XXX on my linux machine. I upload videos to many other sources without a problem but with xxx it does not work..

I have installed the proper Java plugin on my linux machine that is required but it still does not work. Nothing pops ups or changes on the upload screen; it just look like this http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...n/uploader.gif

I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can use my linux machine to upload videos to xxx. I don't have access to a windows machine so I can't upload via window's.

This is super important for me and if someone can help me figure out how to make it work that would be great. Your help is greatly apreciated.

Hey ...

I've removed the link/name of your site because I think that there's potentially
dodgy content on there.

As far as I'm concerned I'd be using strace to execute the browser and see whether
there's any info in its output pertaining to the problems you experience. One
guess would be that the java part uses something stupidly windows specific, e.g.
"c:\path to something" that has no place/equivalent in Linux.

Try something like
strace -o debug.out -vFf /path/to/browser URL

Happy hunting.


Cheers,
Tink

Hello Tink,

The strace doesn't seem to be an actice command on the system. I am using centos if that changes anything.

The plugin is installed properly as if you type in aboutlugins you can see that the java is all there.

Could I give you my login information for the website and see if you can get it working on your own machine? Why would it work fine in windows but not in linux? I really need this java plugin to work.

Let me know if you need more information.
-Mike

Here's the java info.

# java -version
java version "1.6.0_13"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_13-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.3-b02, mixed mode)

Heh .. I don't think I want your credentials, and I don't think you
should publicise them here; also, it wouldn't help you if I can get
it to play nice on my Slackware install, either. And strace is available
for RH, so must be for centos; try "yum install strace"


Cheers,
Tink

Hey Tink,

The account I would give you is a test account with no personal information.

Alright so strace has been installed. Now, I am in no means an expert in linux.. I think I would consider my self a nubber then a nub. So having said that, what exactly do you want me to look for?

I use this command: strace -o debug.out -vFf /path/to/browser URL and then what do I do with this information?

Sorry for all the questions. I wish I knew more :S

Look for error message in the output. If you see something about missing
files (hint: search for ENOENT) you may be on track.

Do you happen to have msn or another meethod to contact you. I am on my computer all day and it would be easier if I could just speak to you in real time. I tried this command: strace -o debug.out -vFf /usr/lib/mozilla and got this: strace: exec: Permission denied.

Honestly, my head is starting to hurt from trying to figure this out. Ive been searching all over the internet for several days.

Thanks for the help thus far.

Sorry matey, I'm at work, and can't do real time support due to work-load. If you get permission denied change to a directory that you have write access to. Could also be because of the missing executable; sorry about the confusion, you'll need to specify the program as well as the path, so that's

strace -o ~/debug.out -vFf /usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin


Ceers,
Tink

Alright Tink, Let me explain the exact situation.

I am accessing the linux server using VNC and then using the internet to try and upload files.

When you go to the uploade page on the particular website I want to upload files onto is says "Sorry, Mac (OS X) is currenntly not supported."

I took a screen and you can see it here: http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee300/sp0oon/mac.jpg

Is it possible that the website does not support linux? I had a friend do some investigating and he seems to have ruled out any other possability. Hes not a linux expert but he does know linux pretty well.

I wish I could be of more help but I'm honestly clueless when it comes to linux.

Please fill me in with anything info.

Thanks
-Cheers.

Well I think you got your answer there. The site doees not support Mac (and logically Linux). To upload to the site you have to be on a windows machine.
