Question

owncloud one-click downloads videos instead of playing them back

I remember this working with previous owncloud one-click instances. Now, however, it no longer plays back MP4 videos… it downloads them instead of popping up a video player and playing it.

Does anyone know if this is an owncloud issue or if this is an issue with one-click install app?

I’m using the version in provided by the one-click install owncloud droplet. It says the version is 9.1.4.

The thing is, I think this was working just fine in older versions of the one-click install owncloud droplet. Did something change?

Which version of Owncloud are you using? The newer versions should come with a builtin video player: https://github.com/owncloud/files_videoplayer And the earlier versions needs an app, like: https://apps.owncloud.com/content/show.php/HTML5+Video+Player?content=173950
