mime_unknown for Mov

Hi Guys,

as I mentioned elsewhere, I have just carried out a fresh install of the latest version of Serendipity onto a Raspberry Pi, after solving the PHP version issue, I now find that when I upload a video firstly it doesn't create a thumbnail, instead using a mime_unknown.png file, and then when I include the video's in a post it doesn't even use that png file instead giving a missing image marker, if I'm in the media library and click on the video link it produces a screen that states 'the image could not be loaded' with 'the image a link to the following:-

'install ip-address/serendipity_admin.php?serendipity[adminModule]=image&serendipity[adminAction]=choose&serendipity[noBanner]=true&serendipity[noSidebar]=true&serendipity[fid]=32&serendipity[filename_only]=&serendipity[textarea]=&serendipity[htmltarget]=

Can someone please advise if there is something I am doing wrong, I tried a MOV, AVI and an MP4 file all with the same results.

I doubt you are doing something wrong. In the current git version of serendipity we changed how videos are treated, and it was my impression that this was a bit broken before. Most users do not use the ML for videos so far, but upload them to youtube or peertube instead. That's what I'd recommend, for now.
