New Release: PeepSo & Gecko 4.0.4.0

“No conversion” video uploads improvements, let admins repost their own posts, bug fixes.

“No conversion” video uploads

The new video uploads method has been improved to properly support MOV files. However, this file type depends on browser support. As far as we can tell all major browsers are capable of MOV playback via the HTML5 video tag.

The file extensions allow list related to this feature was improved too. From now on when it’s empty it will default to MP4 (not to “any file type”) and we made sure it’s not case sensitive (so when configured to allow mp4 it also allows MP4 and vice versa).

Repost

We modified the permissions on our Repost engine to allow Administrators to repost their own entries. Repost is now considered a legacy mechanic, waiting to be replaced with a new sharing engine (which will take at least months to develop). The new system will not have such limitations in place, the idea is for everyone to be able to Repost everything in the future

Bug fixes

We fixed some compatibility issues with Elementor/Elementor Pro, All In One SEO and User Submitted Posts. We also made sure the like/share button labels on profiles do not overlap when like count is a big number.

Before [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) I was a contractor and have helped build successful businesses around the world, including USA, UK, Germany, Indonesia and Malaysia. A couple of years leading up to founding PeepSo, I was involved with JomSocial - a social networking extension for Joomla. Stepping up from the role of contractor to business owner, I became [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast and functional software that **empowers the users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom** often not available on the mainstream social networking media. As a **location independent** *digital nomad* I travel almost constantly, although over the past five years I have spent most of my time in Indonesia and Malaysia. I speak fluent English and Polish, decent German and Spanish and even some Indonesian.

@peepso_user_10(Matt Jaworski) many thanks for continued upgrade of best social plugin for WordPress. Direct upload of video...just a thought but creating a jpeg, and or a 5 second webp at time of direct upload? Like ffmpeg upload, videos would have exact same look (albeit without full webp), feel no matter how PeepSo admin configures site upload. Only say this because some .mp4 uploads although playing fine, show a blank screen on post.

@peepso_user_40438(Don Brady) we will look into this, but these things require specialized libraries.

@peepso_user_10(Matt Jaworski) another great upgrade. Great job. Any chance of PeepSo allowing videos uploaded and converted using ffmpeg on our local servers to save the converted videos to S3. My server works great for converting but would prefer to offload the video to S3 to save my own disc space. I think this would be a great feature in addition to the other video options being offered.
@peepso_user_10(Matt Jaworski)
@peepso_user_30055(Brian Crawford) you can use a third party media offloader to achieve that, we are not planning to implement a redundant S3 offload system. We did one for Photos because Photos don't go to WP Media Library.

@peepso_user_10(Matt Jaworski) thanks. Setup WP Offload Media with a Digital Ocean Space and works great.
