THINGS TO STILL DO WITH THE TEMPLATE:

[FYI: EVP (Easy Video Player) is the video player we use for MOBILE videos!
http://jazzheaven.com/evp is the login! EMAIL FW FOR USERNAME/PASSWORD!]

* Set up Video(s) in EVP (720×416 AND 592×336 versions):
* Log into EVP: http://jazzheaven.com/evp
* go to the FILES tab & sort the videos by FILE NAME & find your video (720×416 version first…; later 720×416 EXTRA(S), if any; later 592×336 version(s))
* click on the TOOLS icon to the right (next to the magnifying glass) [when you hover over it, it will say “CHANGE VIDEO SETTINGS”!] * click on CREATE NEW PROFILE in top right & name it s/th like “kw 4s lesson 720” [“Artist Initial Lesson Title shortcode etc.”] * use the (already selected!) DEFAULT skin! (The one kind of in the middle; with black control bar; and blue line for already played time of video.)
=> Choose/change the following settings:
WIDTH: 720 (and later, for smaller one: 592)
HEIGHT: 416 (and later, for smaller one: 336); AND: Check the box next to Width/Height (“Preserve Aspect Ratio?”)
ALLOW FULLSCREEN: yes
ENABLE SHADOWS: yes
ALLOW PAUSING: yes
ALL OTHERS: leave at “NO”! (And leave “PLAYER COLOUR” as is!)
VIDEO SCALING: fit
PLAYER CONTROLS: only show on mouseover
UPLOAD A SPLASH IMAGE: not yet!! You will do that later…
REST OF THIS PAGE: do not change anything. (Where applies: leave at “NO”.)
EXCEPT THIS: SECURITY SETTINGS – “Enable Site Restriction”: choose YES! (And confirm it says “http://jazzheaven.com” below…)
* Hit SAVE & click on the PREVIEW video player on the resulting page!

* Take Screenshot for SPLASH IMAGE(S):
Still in EVP: in the PREVIEW of the EVP video you just created, take a SCREENSHOT (apple+shift+4) of EXACT video player (720×416).
WATCH: you need an image WITHOUT the play button = you need to create that screenshot WHILE the video plays!!
Choose a moment where the artist looks NOT stupid. ;)
AND: consider that there later will be a PLAY BUTTON in the CENTER of the shot = do NOT choose a moment where the artist's FACE is right in the center!!
Take a few screenshots right after another (3 to 4) – then pick the winner(s)!
NAME only the winning screenshot! (Delete the others)
Name winner something like: “kw-4s-mobile-lesson-splash-720×416”.
Park it in a NEW FOLDER on your desktop called something like “kw 4s mobile TEMP splash stuff”

* NOW REPEAT the above TWO paragraphs
[1) prep EVP video and 2) take screenshot (in EVP Preview) for splash image] for any OTHER 720×416 premium video(s) of the project! (Incl. EXTRAS Video(s)!)

* Now, REPEAT setting up EVP (see FIRST section above: “Set up Video(s) in EVP (720×416 AND 592×336 versions)“) for each 592×336 video of the project! (But NO need for now taking 592×336 screenshots!!)
IMPORTANT: for the 592×336 videos, you do NOT need to take screenshots in EVP for the splash images!! => In the next step below (in Photoshop), you will simply also create 592×336 JPG versions (from the same image as for the 720×416 JPGs!).

* In PHOTOSHOP, convert the winning 720×416 screenshots to JPGs (720×416 *AND* 592×336):
Note upfront: you should now have screenshots for EACH MP4 file on your WP page on your local desktop…
[DON'T HAVE PHOTOSHOP? Try a free online tool like http://pixlr.com/
* open PHOTOSHOP & open the first winning 720×416 screenshot.
* select the CROP tool (top left; below the paint brush; ) & enter WIDTH: “720 px” (and later 592) and HEIGHT: “416 px” (and later 336)
* select the image with the crop tool (put your mouse over it & cover the whole image).
(You may have to slightly adjust the selected area now! Can adjust with UP/DOWN/RIGHT/LEFT ARROWS on your keyboard! -> Make sure the EDGES are clean!)
* Go to IMAGE/CROP and crop it!
* Now go to FILE/”SAVE FOR WEB AND DEVICES…” & choose “100” for QUALITY & check off “CONVERT TO SRGB” & all else NOT checked off!); and SAVE it to the TEMP FOLDER with the screenshots from before called “kw 4s TEMP splash stuff” (or similar…)

Still in PHOTOSHOP, create the 592×336 version of the JPG:
* with the same image that you STILL have open in Photoshop: at top left, change WIDTH to “592 px” & HEIGHT to “336 px”;
then select the image with the crop tool. (You may have to slightly adjust the selected area now! Can adjust area with UP/DOWN/RIGHT/LEFT ARROWS on your keyboard! -> Make sure the EDGES are clean!)
* Go to IMAGE/CROP and click on CROP!
* Now go to FILE/”SAVE FOR WEB AND DEVICES…” & choose “100” for QUALITY & check off “CONVERT TO SRGB” (and all else NOT checked off!); and SAVE it to the same TEMP FOLDER with the screenshots from before called “”kw 4s mobile TEMP splash stuff” (or similar…)
WATCH: before saving, ADJUST FILE NAME and change “720×416” to “592×336”. Then hit SAVE!
Now, CLOSE out of your current Photoshop document (red circle at top right); and no need to save it…!

* REPEAT LAST FEW STEPS (in Photoshop; the 2 paragraphs above) to create splash image(s) for any other videos on your WP page!
You should end up with 720×416 AND 592×336 JPGs of ALL screenshots in your temp folder!

* Add SPLASH IMAGE(S) to EVP Video:
* GO BACK TO EVP, to the same video & the custom PROFILE (!) of this video you created before
* click BROWSE next to “Upload a splash image:” and find the correct JPG on your computer's desktop! (The temp folder!)
NOTE: VERY CAREFUL to now choose the CORRECT JPG! (Right size! And NOT the initial screenshot WITHOUT “.JPG” extension!)
* Hit SAVE again, and confirm that you see that splash image correctly in the PREVIEW now!

[FW NOTE TO SELF: EVP will now upload this splash image to the EVP S3 folder AND *automatically* make its file name “the MP4 file name (PLUS the EVP PROFILE name at the end, if any!!)”. ALSO: ACL of this JPG is automatically set to READ for EVERYONE by EVP already! ;)
ALSO: fyi, one could change EVP settings and would NOT need to update the embed code on the WP page… page would AUTOMATICALLY reflect the changes!!
]

* Add EVP video to your WP page:
* copy the embed code below the EVP preview inside of EVP of this video
(Use the suggested “BEST OPTION” – the JAVASCRIPT choice! Which should already be showing!)
* in your WP page: in the HTML editor & the correct place where the video belongs, click with your mouse (and also delete the placeholder text (e.g. “[EVP CODE 720 Student Lesson HERE]”).
Then click the “EMBED AN EVP VIDEO” just above the HTML editor & PASTE IN your EVP code!
Then hit UPDATE to save your WP page! [Make sure you REALLY see the page updating! Can see this at bottom left – or at top of window (moving circle)…] * REPEAT this paragraph for ALL video players on your page!
And confirm that all videos are showing now! (By hitting VIEW PAGE (below the page title).)

* Can now DELETE the TEMP folder on your desktop with the splash images!

(Since they are all uploaded to EVP already…)

* Prep Screenshot of 720X416 PLAYLIST (from 720×416 CF version PLAYLIST!):
* go to regular WEB version page of this video in WordPress (which you already set up earlier!)
[Put “[Artist First & Last Name] web” in WP search bar to find it quickly…] * take a look at the page:
=> IF Playlist has a scroll bar: TEMPORARILY make ONE little change to this page's LOWEST-sitting CSS file (search for “css”)!
Modify it to say this: “…style-720×416-w-playlist-700-height.css”
So you can simply REPLACE the existing HEIGHT VALUE with “700” – OR… add “-700-height”, if it currently ends with “…-w-playlist.css”!
IMPORTANT: BEFORE YOU DO THAT……:
1) Remember the ORIGINAL HEIGHT!
2) Temporarily BACK UP the original HTML code – by copying & pasting it into notepad or other simple text doc…).
=> IF Playlist shows WITHOUT scroll bar: ignore the previous temp CSS height modification & move on to next line!
* Now, CREATE A SCREENSHOT of the PLAYLIST on this page ONLY! (So, NOT the video player(s)…!)
On a Mac, use apple+shift+4. (Be as EXACT as possible to catch the real WIDTH & HEIGHT of the playlist only!! ALSO: this should be the SAME WIDTH as the video player!! (720px))
This will save the screenshot your desktop as a .png file.
Park this .png file of the screenshot on your desktop and name it”kenny-werner-4s-solo-lesson-playlist-720″

* In PHOTOSHOP, create 720 JPG(s) of PLAYLIST Screenshot:
* open PHOTOSHOP & open the winning 720 playlist screenshot.
* select the CROP tool (top left; below the paint brush; ) & enter WIDTH: “720 px” (and leave HEIGHT *blank*!)
* select the image with the crop tool (put your mouse over it & cover the whole image).
(You may have to slightly adjust the selected area now! Can adjust with UP/DOWN/RIGHT/LEFT ARROWS on your keyboard! -> Make sure the EDGES are clean!)
* Go to IMAGE/CROP and crop it!
* Now go to FILE/”SAVE FOR WEB AND DEVICES…” & choose “100” for QUALITY & check off “CONVERT TO SRGB” & all else NOT checked off!); and SAVE it to the TEMP FOLDER with the screenshots from before called “kw 4s mobile playlist screenshots TEMP” (or similar…).
Name file exactly like the screenshot – only with a .JPG at the end. This will automatically be suggested by Photoshop…
(So, s/th like: “kenny-werner-4s-solo-lesson-playlist-720.jpg”.)
REPEAT this section for all playlist screenshots!

* Upload Playlist JPGs to into your WP Page (for TOP 2 (720×416) Players ONLY):
* In your Mobile WP page for the lesson, find the placeholder for the playlist (something like “[EVP PLAYLIST *IMAGE* Lessons Part 1 HERE]”)
* Click on the “Upload/Insert” button/link at the top left above the HTML editor
* WATCH! Make sure to upload the .JPG version – and NOT the initial screenshot…!
* Choose the following settings in the POP-UP:
FILE NAME: leave as is (WP automatically filled in the file name; e.g. “kenny-werner-4s-lesson-playlist1-720”
ALTERNATE TEXT: Enter something like this: “Kenny Werner 4 Steps Playlist 1”
LINK URL: none
ALIGNMENT: center
SIZE: full size
* Click on “INSERT INTO POST” (and NOT on SAVE IMAGE!)
* REPEAT for ALL playlist image JPGs for this page!
* Hit UPDATE to save the page (confirm it REALLY updates by seeing movement at BOTTOM LEFT of browser; or at very top) – and then hit VIEW PAGE to confirm it all displays correctly!

* You can now DELETE the TEMP folder on your desktop with the playlist JPGs & screenshots!
(Since they are all uploaded to WP already…)

* IMPORTANT: ALSO, now go the regular WEB version for the video for a moment (so NOT the MOBILE WP page you are mainly working on now!), and change the CSS HEIGHT *back* to its original value!
Search for “700”. (You added “700” before the lowest CSS file on that WP page.)
Now, either replace “700” with the ORIGINAL number of the CSS file.
Or…, if there was no # at the end of the CSS file, delete the “-700”, so that CSS file ends again with “…-w-playlist.css”.
Then hit UPDATE and view the page to confirm that the playlists look like before! (And no weird, LONG empty space below the playlist! And with a scroll bar, IF there was one initially.)

Back on MOBILE WP page:* Check PDF/MP3 EXTRAS DOWNLOAD LINK (find it by searching THIS WP here for “zip”…)
If no PDF/MP3 Extras: delete that whole section!
If PDF/MP3 Extras: insert the correct new link (you created this before! And parked it in the “Dia Ultracart OAP New Product Creation Checklist” GD!).
You wanna replace the “temp link” further below on this very WP template page that is called:
“http://jazzheaven.com/extras-jdh-rp-jd-12zz-SOME-UNIQUE-PRETTY-LINK-HERE”

* Confirm text @ top is correct (Artist Name + Product Title; AND ARTIST FIRST NAME in 1st paragraph!! Make sure no “placeholder text” is left!)

* Once page looks DONE: confirm all instructions text is deleted & page is clean & READY TO GO now! Then this page is DONE! ;)

[FOR *INTERVIEWS* IGNORE this paragraph!!] NOTE: next you will create/set up the 24-HOUR (aka 1x) version of the MOBILE version!
=> To do that, you will simply COPY & PASTE the HTML content of the regular (web) MOBILE version (you just created) into a NEW WP page – and then DELETE any MP3/PDF EXTRAS!!
=> But you STILL follow the instructions in the “Dia Ultracart OAP New Product Creation Checklist” GD…! (Which you should already have open now!)

Joe Smith: “Test Product” Instructional Video – Mobile Version

The friendly version: [ARTIST FIRST NAME] and many people behind the scenes worked their butts off for many MONTHS to make this nice & shiny video for you.
Please allow us to keep bringing you the good stuff by not sharing your login info with other people.

The not-so-friendly version: If you share your user name & password with your friends, we WILL have to call our friend Tony with the big stick (aka cancel your account). Seriously. Yes, we have the technology in place to monitor that. Please play nice – or we will cancel your account.

This is the MOBILE VERSION – the regular web version will NOT play on mobile devices.

Please be patient! These are very BIG video files and they need a minute to load.
They will NOT play as instantly as when watching on a computer.

It is NORMAL that the screen turns black until the play button loads.
It is also normal that, after you click the Play Button, it will take a little while for the video to load.

Please be patient! ;) It will play.

Also, you can unfortunately NOT jump to later places in the video right away (contrary to our regular web version), it needs to load first.
So, before you think “this is not working on my iPhone/iPad/Android, etc.!”: hang on for a minute, it WILL work. ;)

Waited for a while and still have an issue? Contact us through our Support Center.
(Please be specific: What device? How long did you let it load? Which video? Etc.)

iPad & Android Version:

(See iPhone version further below!)
