    Hi all,

    Anyone who has experience with integrating the Flow player inside Sitefinity?

    http://flowplayer.org/

    Or... has a better alternative?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for using our services.

    There should be no problems integrating this player for the public end of your website. As a sample you can use this embed markup to add it to a page using the Generic Content control in HTML mode:
    <object width="460" height="320" data="http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.1.5.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.1.5.swf" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="flashvars" value='config={"plugins":{"pseudo":{"url":"flowplayer.pseudostreaming-3.1.3.swf"},"controls":{"backgroundColor":"#000000","backgroundGradient":"low"}},"clip":{"provider":"pseudo","url":"http://flashy.flowplayer.org/video/flowplayer-700.flv"},"playlist":[{"provider":"pseudo","url":"http://flashy.flowplayer.org/video/flowplayer-700.flv"}]}' /></object>

    However to ease your users I would recommend that you create a user control where you would wrap up the player and set the parameters for playback based on some control properties. You can take a look at his forum thread for reference: Add SWF o0r Flash video in the pages.

    Hi Radoslav,

    Thanks for the reply.
    Yes, I was thinking of a UserControl to set some properties and also the ability to select video's (.flv files) from a custom library.

    I don't know if this .js file (didn't looked into it, yet) is usefull for this, or only .swf files?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Hello Daniel,

    I am not sure also how useful is the flow player. I am afraid that I am not in the position to recommend any flash players as most of them are under paid licenses. Probably someone from the community will share their thoughts on which flash players they are using.

    Kind regards,
