Hmmmm your right, I'm getting the same issue, no errors are being thrown up.

I also found an error in one of the smarty templates main.tpl Line 29 had
a hardcoded IP address, I changed this to

<a href="http://{$app_url_root}/mythiphone/" target="_self">Click here to
refresh the video list</a>

Maybe someone else can provide some pointers on how to troubleshoot the
javascript code thats mean to kick off the conversion?
