FlowPlayer is a video player for Flash Video in FLV format.
The player is easy to configure and embed into your home page, site, or blog.
FlowPlayer.swf is a player that is ready to be used out-of-the box. FlowPlayer.html is an example of Web page that uses it. The name of the video file to be loaded by the player is specified in html page in the < object > tag's flashvars attribute. This attribute is there in two places (both in < objec t> and < embed > tags) to maximize the number of supported Web browsers.
By default, the player loads the video file from the same location as it loads FlowPlayer.swf. The name of this variable is 'videoFile' and the value should be the name of the video file with or without an extension.
There is also a way to specify a complete URL. This is done using the 'baseURL' variable. When this mechanism is used the video files and FlowPlayer.swf may reside in different locations within the Web server or even in different servers.
'autoPlay' variable is used to specify whether playback should start immediately when the player has been loaded into the Web browser. Legal values for this parameter are 'true' and 'false'.
Please refer to FlowPlayer.html for descriptions of all HTML parameters used to control the player.
