Foliovision Forums FV Player Troubleshooting Rollover display of control bar

  • In the sample video at Settings > FB WordPress Flowplayer … if you rollover the video, the video control bar shows at the bottom of the video.

    Is there a way to set this to “always show” or to get it to function similar to the sample video where the control bar shows on rollover?

    controlbar=’show’ does not seem to impact this?

    Hi GT,

    with the following shortcode [flowplayer src='example.flv' controlbar='show'] it should be working just fine. Could you check if you use proper syntax of the shortcode?

    Thanks,
    Milan

    The syntax is correct…

    The control bar shows when you click play, but not before then. I am hoping it can show “by default” without playing.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi GT,

    Showing the control bar “by default” is not possible in this version. We can help you and add this option to the plugin code but that is a Pro Support Incident – http://foliovision.com/seo-tools/wordpress/pro-install.

    We are also working on the new version of FV Flowplayer with HTML5.

    Thanks,
    Milan

    A Pro Support incident results in features being added to the product? I am a little confused by the Pro Support in this regard.

    I found the issue: the control bar does not show by default if enabled and a poster / splash image is present. If no image is present, the control bar displays.

    Some of your content suggests a Pro version of this plugin will be available in the future… do you guys have an estimated launch date for that or a list of everything it will include?

    Thanks.

    Hello Drummie,

    We prioritise fixes for those who buy pro support incidents.

    The new version is available right now and some people have already pre-purchased it. We will post pricing and a purchase page soon.
