Is it possible to publish not only photos on my family mages but also video? I found already, that not all formats can be uploaded. MPG works. which other formats work?. But after uploading a video it was not possible to play the video. So how can I publish videos on my family pages correctly?
I'm sorry, but we currently don't support the publishing of videos to family sites.
It’s a good suggestion though, myHeritage takes member feedback seriously - we have made and will make a lot of improvements as a result of member feedback. Hopefully we will be supporting video publishing soon.
My last message was posted a year ago, since then we have upgraded the photos section of the site and we do support videos of many formats now.
let me know if you need any help,
What video formats DO you support? I tried to upload 3 that are in WMV format, which is (to my knowledge) one of the most widely accepted formats available. I got the message that they were in an incorrect format, but nothing told me which are accepted. If I have to change all my vids over to another format to post them, I'll just post links to youtube....I'm not gonna have multiple copies of everything.
I have some remarks about Family Pages localization in russian language.
First of all I have big troubles with inviting other members. When I invite my mom, for example,her name in the member list becomes unreadable. I worked a bit around this problem and understood, that while whole site uses UTF-8 encoding, my mother's name is in Western (ISO-8859-1) encoding. I suppose this happens because iniviting script convert name to ISO-8859-1 character encoding, or it's related to the database structure.
Also there is localization troubles between FTB and FP. While FTB displays names correctly, when I open My sites management window, I can't read normally the name of my site and the names of site members.
And two little bugs. First: moth names appears in english on my FP site, while they should be in russian (for example May instead Май). Second: at the bottom of the whole site, where language list is situated (near to copyright information), russian language shown as "русский", but more correctly is "Русский", with capital first letter.
На подавляющем большинстве мультиязычных сайтов в интернете русский язык указывается или как "Русский" или как "Russian', т.е. с заглавной буквы. Даже здесь, на myheritage.com в списке языков все кроме русского начинаются с большой буквы. Отчего же тогда такая несправедливость к великому и могучему?
А вообще это наименее критичная вещь из всех описанных мной багов.
At most multilingual internet sites russian language is presented as "Русский" or "Russian", with capital first letter. Even here, at myheritage.com, all other languages are with capital first letter. Why is here such unfairness to russian language?
And it's the least critical of all bugs I've described.
When I upload new photos some of them appear on my welcome page under "New Photos". I have 2 pictures stuck there. I have uploaded half a dozen pictures, but these two older ones are there and do not change. So instead of showing 4 new pics, I have only 2 new and 2 old.
Is there a way to change wich branch the tree follows when it comes to adoptees who know both their normal and adoptee parrents? The FTB software currently renders the adoptee tree while the website renders the biological tree. Personaly, I think it should render the adoptee branch, but would also be ok with a toggle or at least both the software and the website rendering it the same way. It may also be that I am just not seeing where to effect the change I am looking for.
I uploaded 27 family tree photos via the Family Tree Builder. When I log-on to our MyHeritage website, the front page indicates that there are 30 photos added to the family tree. When I click the "Albums" icon, the website indicates that our family album contains 30 photos. But when I click to view our family album, the website indicates that there are 27 photos listed (correct no.) in the family tree album.
Why does the frontpage and the albums header indicate that there are 30 photos when there are actually only 27?
First I'd like to thank you for your help getting through to the www.myheritage.com instead of the www.myheritage.dk site, while the danish domain is being moved (thanks for your reply to my e-mails)!
Now yet another question from me:
I have biological as well as adoptive parents. I've registered both in my Family Tree Builder project with no problems, BUT it seems, that only my biological parents are transferred to my family site during publishing. How can I transfer also my adoptive parents?
how am i gonna attached my steph uncle, since he is a part of my family tree... he has different mom, but his dad is my grandfather... how can i attached him... becuz when i tried to view the descendants of my grandfather.. i cannot i do not know how to attached... and ca't view it..
