People love watching a video, and video is one of the important factors to keep your users engage and stay more in your community. phpFox makes it easy to share video from Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Mp4, Facebook or upload videos directly from computers.

NOTES:  If you want to enable user to upload videos directly from a computer/device without using a link (Vimeo, Youtube..), your server must be able to encode/transcode videos so that they can be uploaded properly.   phpFox supports  2 solutions that you can use  Zencoder video encoding service, or you must have FFMPEG installed on your server.
