One Media Gallery for All Media Activity?


#1

Is it possible for all media to feed into one media gallery? My goal is to basically display the Activity Feed in a masonry style with infinite scroll and pooling all activity that is media related into one gallery would be a great start for this. Thanks!

Hi Andrea,
You can use rtMedia gallery shortcode for that purpose. Please check this doc -> https://rtcamp.com/rtmedia/docs/common/shortcodes/gallery-shortcode/ for more information on gallery shortcode.

Set global=true in shortcode to fetch all the media.

Awesome. Thanks!! Works great in a grid too! Any way to display the member’s username under the image as well, that you know of?

Also, .MOV iPhone videos say they are not supported. Is this true? Thanks!

Yes, you can display user name under the images but it will require some custom code. You need to override rtMedia templates, check for whether it is gallery shortcode and if it is gallery shortcode than display user name.

Regarding .mov file support, it only supports .mp4 files. You need to encode .mov files into .mp4 to be able to play it. rtMedia provides audio/video encoding service. Please check addon tab in rtMedia admin panel. Check this doc -> https://rtcamp.com/rtmedia/docs/admin/addons/audio-video-encoding/ for more information.
