- Embed code display nothing
There aren't any special requirements for FV WordPress Flowplayer to work, and you don't need to install any additional plugins.
- Download and unpack zip archive containing the plugin.
- Upload the
wp-content/plugins/directory of your wordpress installation.
- Go into WordPress
pluginssetup in WordPress administration interface and activate FV WordPress Flowplayer plugin.
- Click both "Check template" and "Check videos" in the plugin settings screen in Settings -> FV WordPress Flowplayer
If you see a warning about missing html5.js file saying "html5.js not found in your template!" check the section below.
- Optionally, if you want to embed videos denoted just by their filename, you can create the
/videos/directory located directly in the root of your domain and place your videos there. Otherwise, you would have to type in a complete URL of video files.
Adding missing html5.js file
Most modern WordPress templates already use this file, but if it's missing, you can grab it from html5shiv Google Code page. Simply hit the download link, unpack the resulting ZIP file and then copy dist/html5shiv.js into your theme folder as html5.js and add following PHP into your header.php template:
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/js/html5.js"></script>
Using together with WP Minify
Before enabling WP Minify, we recommend that you run the template check and take care of any issues. Once you enable WP Minify, the default settings should be fine, but we recommend that you check a couple of your videos.
You need to make sure that your video files use the correct mime types. You can simply add following into your .htaccess file:
AddType video/mp4 .mp4 AddType video/webm .webm AddType video/ogg .ogv AddType application/x-mpegurl .m3u8 AddType video/x-m4v .m4v # hls transport stream segments: AddType video/mp2t .ts
If you use NginX, this is handled in the config files.
If you see an error message like this, you don't have PHP 5 installed:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /... .../wp-content/plugins/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/models/flowplayer.php on line 4
The plugin requires PHP 5 in order to run properly. Ask your hosting provider to upgrade to PHP 5, PHP 4 is just too old.
