There aren't any special requirements for FV WordPress Flowplayer to work, and you don't need to install any additional plugins.
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.
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
- 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.
- 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.
