When I click save configuration on the PLAYERS tab I get this error

"An illegal choice has been detected. Please contact the site administrator."

It may be because I am having to used drupal 7-dev - April 5 version.

(when you upgrade to the latest apache, the feb1 of drupal 7 has issues, which will be fixed by next core release)

An associated error warning should also have been logged to the Drupal error log. Could you try to find that log entry and post it here?

Is this error happening consistently or just once in a while? What Flash / HTML5 players are available on your system?

If I am the only one this is happening to... don't worry, I put the video on you tube and stuck the embed code for now rather than setup a content type to get the job done.

I installed the module for video.js

However to help... It seems that it does it for all players..... I\

Do you want me to do a default install of module video on a test site with just enough modules to run video then without making any player changes click save configuration on that tab ?

HERE is a cut/paste of the drupal log

CONFIRMED

Same server on a new website with minimal modules using drupal 7 dev version as of April 5th,
And after installing video and video ui,
I went staight to the configuration player and with none changed clicked on save configuration
and immediately got mulitple errors,
"An illegal choice has been detected. Please contact the site administrator."

It may not be the fault of the video module - could be something else... but I did generate
the fault inside the video module when attempting to save configuration for player with
nothing changed.

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this problem. Can I get access to your site with sufficient permissions to reproduce this problem? Is it happening for all browsers?

Another question: could you post screenshots of the form before and after you submit it?

I'm experiencing the same issue. The strange part is that this was working previously; I just rebuilt the Drupal install from scratch to eliminate all the cruft that had built up during development.

I've attached 3 screenshots:

  1. Pre-submit form
  2. Post-submit form
  3. Post-submit error log

Let me know if I can provide any more information to help debug this issue. Thanks!

Okay, found something interesting. I used Drush to build the project and didn't realize that Drush had downloaded 7.13-dev when I ran drush make. I rolled the core Drupal install back to 7.12 and everything works fine.

Status:Postponed (maintainer needs more info)» Closed (works as designed)

It is certainly weird that the current Drupal issue is the problem. I see some changes in the Drupal commit log related to this situation. I'm going to keep an eye on this when 7.13 is released.

Agreed, leave closed since the 7 dev is still morphing, it may go away....
But when you are ready to and if you need a temporary sandbox website, let me know
and I'll create and ftp account and load up a test site on one of my servers and give admin in
appreciation of the project.

Thanks for that, I don't think it is necessary. If I have time, I'll update my own development installation to see if I can fix the bug before 7.13 is released. That settings screen is kind of hacky anyway, with all those hidden radio buttons. I might change it to something that uses AHAH.

Status:Closed (works as designed)» Fixed

The problem is still present in the current -dev version of Drupal, which will become 7.13 this Wednesday. I have committed a fix for this problem.

For all people that want this fix: be careful when updating to Video 7.x-2.x-dev. The version has been tested a lot, but contains many changes. Read the release notes of the development release before you upgrade.

I'm having this same issue with using 7.14.

What is it that I should do to fix this?

Please update to 7.x-2.x-dev. Please read the release notes before updating.

Hi,

Drupal 7.14
video version 7.x-2.5

I have the same issue

The configuration options have been saved.

I'm using Drupal 7.14 and the Video module 7.x-2.6 and I'm getting this same error. It may have worked ok for vadzen with 7.x-2.5-dev, but it's not working with 7.x-2.6.

EDIT: I tested with 7.x-2.x-dev and it's working, but 7.x-2.6 has a publish date of 2012-May-16 and 7.x-2.x-dev has a publish date of 2012-May-09 so that's a bit confusing to me. It looks like 2.6 should contain whatever bug fix is included in the 2.x-dev, but either it doesn't contain the fix or something that is stripped out of 2.x-dev during the conversion to production code is stripping away part of the bug fix.

This is very strange: I just downloaded 7.x-2.x and 7.x-2.6 and the only difference between the two is in the version numbers in the info files. Could you try to download 2.6 again?

Status:Needs work» Closed (fixed)

I will close this issue as you have contacted me by mail and this issue seems resolved.

I also had this issue with Drupal 7.14 and Video 7.x-2.5. Updating Drupal to 7.15 solves the issue. That allows someone who's in a hurry to keep the upgrade to Video 7.x-2.7 for later.
