This change improves and simplifies the initial steps to run this great gallery! Further, the installation documentation was updated and improved.
exiftool and ffmpeg are no longer required to run the basic operations. Further the dependend PEAR libraries are now included into the software. The new version could be downloaded as ZIP archive or TAR ball – happy testing.
Without exiftool the meta data like tags, categories or geo location are imported from photos but not be written back to them. Without ffmpeg only flash movies could be imported. If you have ffmpeg other video formats are supported and the videos are automatically converted from AVI, MPEG or MOV to the flash file format. ffmpeg also creates the a video preview. If now preview exists a default image is shown.
